The Green Bay Packers quarterback revealed this during his virtual appearance on the "Pat McAfee Show." Rodgers expressed his excitement about being on the show and revealed his admiration for the show's late former host, Alex Trebek.

Rodgers made his first appearance on "Jeopardy!" in 2015 when he battled actor Kevin O'Leary and retired astronaut Mark Kelly to win $50,000. Aaron donated the money to "Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer Fund."

Trebek died late last year from pancreatic cancer. Ken Jennings temporarily replaced him as the show's host, followed by other former "Jeopardy!" participants. Rodgers recounted his encounter with the ex-host after his passing, which he regards as a memorable day.

Their brother, Luke, also retweeted Jordan's comment.

Unfortunately, the quarterback does not share the same admiration for his family. It was reported that the athlete is in a feud with his family and has not spoken to them since 2014.

Aaron's sister, Jordan Rodgers, also confirmed the family feud in a previous interview. She explained that her relationship with her brother Aaron is almost nonexistent and even hinted that she was not responsible for their animosity.

The reason for the feud is still unknown, and none of Aaron's family members have spoken about it publicly. There are several claims regarding the dispute. One of such claims is that Aaron missed his grandfather's funeral.

It is also rumored that the athlete dropped out of groomsman duties at a close friend's wedding. The feud took another dimension in 2018 when Jordan replied to Aaron's tweet. The latter had pledged a million dollars to fire relief in California.

Jordan responded by accusing Aaron of not showing his mother the same compassion. Their brother, Luke, also retweeted Jordan's comment. Despite his problems, Aaron is a phenomenal athlete and has done well in football.

He was the 7th Green Bay Packers quarterback to reach a 400 touchdown passes milestone. Aaron reached 400 touchdown passes for his 193rd regular-season game, 12 fewer games than Drew Brees, who was previously the fastest to 400.
