“I watched hours and hours and hours of episodes,” Rodgers revealed during an interview on The Pat McAfee Show. “Luckily Netflix has a few seasons, and I went back to DVR.”
“But I had to watch from a different perspective,” the three-time MVP star said about preparing for the role. “From Alex’s perspective – I couldn’t watch it as a fan anymore.”
Rodgers also revealed he would be willing to shave his beard for the chance to permanently host the quiz show, sharing he would have “no problem with it at all!”
“No problem at all!” Rodgers said on The Pat McAfee Show. “I would love to be the host of Jeopardy.”
