NOW: ’Jeopardy!’ contestant shares Packers connection on Rodgers’ fourth episode as guest host


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Aaron Rodgers now has four games of guest hosting "Jeopardy!" under his belt, along with his "Celebrity Jeopardy!" win back in 2015.

On Thursday's show, the Packers quarterback once again shared his love for the game show.

"You know, being here is really personal for me," Rodgers said. "I truly am a 'Jeopardy!' fan, and the people who know and love me understand not to call me at 6 'o clock because that's when "Jeopardy!" airs in Green Bay. I'm so happy to be here and I hope you're enjoying this as much as I am."

That wasn't the only time Green Bay was mentioned in Thursday's show. 

In the contestant interviews, one of the players said he shared an interesting football connection with another Packers legend.

"I both played and coached high school football at White Plains High. My head coach, Mark Santa-Donato, was coached by Ralph Friedgen Sr., who was coached by Colonel Red Black up in West Point, who had Vince Lombardi on his coaching staff...so we're football cousins."

"Four degrees of separation."

"Hey, it's better than six."

You can catch Aaron Rodgers' run as guest host weeknights at 6 p.m. on CBS 58.
