‘Jeopardy!’ contestant mocks Aaron Rodgers with Final Jeopardy answer
On his first night as guest host of “Jeopardy!,” Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was mocked by a contestant with his final answer on Monday’s show.
During the Final Jeopardy round, defending champion Scott Shewfelt, who didn’t know the answer to the question, instead wrote “Who decided to kick that field goal?” in reference to the Packers’ loss in the NFC Championship game in January when head coach Matt LaFleur made the controversial decision to kick a field goal in the last two minutes, even though the team was trailing by 8 points.

The Packers lost the game to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who went on to win the Super Bowl.
Rodgers took the jab from Shewfelt in good spirit.
“That’s a great question,” Rodgers said. “Should be correct, but unfortunately for this game today, it’s incorrect.”
The category for the final round was daytime TV personalities, with the correct answer being Fred Rogers of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.”
Rodgers will continue as guest host of “Jeopardy!” until April 16.
