Rodgers is no stranger to the Jeopardy stage, in 2015 he defeated astronaut Mark Kelly and Kevin O’Leary of Shark Tank on Celebrity Jeopardy.
Rodgers, who considered longtime Jeopardy host Alex Trebek one of his “idols” when he was growing up, posted a heartfelt tweet after Trebek’s passing last year.
😭😭 6p weeknights will never be the same. So many great memories and thankful to have met him ❤️ # https://t.co/W6TLqJy2Ug
