Olivia Munn Turned Down ' Celebrity Jeopardy,' So Aaron Rodgers Accepted!

If you saw Aaron Rodgers play, and win, on Celebrity Jeopardy on Tuesday (May 12), wait until you hear the story about how he ended up appearing as a contestant!

The producers of the show originally reached out to the 31-year-old Green Bay Packers quarterback’s girlfriend Olivia Munn, but she turned them down.

“She was like, ‘I don’t really want to do this,’” Aaron told ESPN. “I was like, ‘I will do that! Tell your people I will do it!’”

“I always watch the show. It’s one thing I enjoy doing every day in the offseason that I’m here,” Aaron added. “It’s on at 6 o’clock, and I usually have it DVR’d if I have to miss it… There’s a lot to it that you don’t quite understand watching at home, that doesn’t come through your TV. For one, there’s a practice game played right before that, and I kind of wish they’d have shown that one. I had like $30,000 on going into Final Jeopardy.”

Aaron played against Shark Tank investor Kevin O’Leary and astronaut Mark Kelly during the episode. He earned $50,000 for the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer organization as the winner of the episode.
