The 37-year-old is making his first appearance on the hit game show on Monday and is all geared up to put the same energy and drive into hosting as he does into football.

KEEPING IT SIMPLE

Rodgers shared "Jeopardy"'s Instagram post showing him in the host position to his Instagram stories. He gave some insight into what he would be doing during his time on the show, saying:

"I wear suits and read clues for the next two weeks on @jeopardy."

The NFL star is evidently not too worried about trading in his football jersey for a suit and is ready to tackle the new opportunity head-on. If nothing else, Rodgers looks handsome in his slick formal outfit.

KEEPING THE FOCUS

Rodgers has been excited about the guest host position in the months leading up to his time in front of the camera as he shared that Alex Trebek, the late "Jeopardy" host who died at the age of 80, had been one of his idols.

The football player is game to approach his hosting in the same manner as he does his professional career as an athlete as he elaborated on how he is taking on "Jeopardy," saying:

“The key to being football smart is to focus. And the key to really being good at hosting is that same focus.”

PREPARATION IS KEY

The Greenbay Packers quarterback also shared what that focus looked like for him during an interview with ESPN, where he revealed that he had watched hours of previous "Jeopardy" episodes to get him ready for the show.

Rodger's said that he watched the show with a renewed perspective, looking at it as a host, not a fan which allowed him to surprise the show's producers during the filming of the first episode.

HAPPINESS ALL ROUND

The 37-year-old's newfound passion as a game show host isn't the only source of joy in his life. Actress Shailene Woodley is the new love in the quarterback's life, and in a rare snap, the two looked happier than ever.

Rodgers and Woodley were pictured together in a group of people shared by Best Cafe and Bar on Instagram. The professional athlete and actress are engaged.

The 29-year-old "Divergent" star broke her silence over her engagement to Rodgers during an interview with "The Tonight Show," confirming that the two are planning on making the trip down the aisle.

The two are in it for the long haul as Rodgers is already talking about starting a family with his wife-to-be as he is ready to tackle the challenge of becoming a father and join all of his dad-friends with his young ones.
