What is April 5?

Remember when Aaron Rodgers did something very Aaron Rodgers-y and randomly revealed he’d be a guest host on Jeopardy!? But a question (not in the form of an answer) remained: When would Aaron Rodgers guest host Jeopardy!? Well, now we have some more specifics: According to a USA Today story, the Packers QB/MVP will start his two-week (!) stint beginning April 5. Rodgers taped his 10 episodes (!) over a two-day period in January.

Rodgers was a Jeopardy! contestant back in 2015, and he was awesome.

If you’ve gotten used to former Jeopardy! whiz Ken Jennings behind the lectern, well, his six-week hosting run is over (for now). Executive producer Mike Richards will take over for two weeks beginning tonight. He’ll be followed by Katie Couric on March 8 (yay!), Dr. Oz on March 22 (boo!), and Rodgers on April 5 (yay, obviously). Anderson Cooper, Savannah Guthrie, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Bill Whitaker, and Mayim Bialik will also take two-week turns.

A permanent host—replacing Alex Trebek, who died in November 2020—will be named in the future.
