Fans Want Aaron Rodgers To Take Over Hosting 'Jeopardy!' Full Time

Taking over as the full-time Jeopardy! host is probably the definition of having big shoes to fill! After all, replacing the legendary Alex Trebek after his decades of hosting the show perfectly has got to be difficult, especially since you also have to earn the approval of the fans.

It looks like Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has already gotten the second part down!

Aaron Rodgers has just started his first week filling in as a temporary guest-host of Jeopardy!

The show has had a few guest hosts so far and plans to have even more, including Mayim Bialik, Katie Couric, Anderson Cooper, Dr. Oz, and of course, NFL superstar Aaron Rodgers.

Aaron's first episode aired this week, and fans are already loving it.

“I would love to be the host of Jeopardy!,” Aaron said in a recent interview.

“There was conversation – there might have been some people who wanted me to shave to the skin. I don’t do that a whole lot, [but] if that was a prereq to get the full-time gig, no problem at all," Aaron joked about the job.

It looks like Jeopardy! fans would also love to see Aaron take over full time.

"Petition to make Aaron Rodgers the permanent @Jeopardy host. He’s great. Selfishly, would also serve me so he doesn’t crush my team’s playoff hopes ever again," one fan tweeted.

"Aaron Rodgers killed it on jeopardy tonight. I wish he was the host the rest of the time," another added.

What do you think?

Do you think Aaron would make a good replacement for Alex, or do you have another choice in mind to fill those legendary shoes? I kind of like the idea of the show having a rotating host, personally!
