    Aaron was OK but about as low-key as any TV host I've ever seen.

    Yeah, talk about a low-energy host. I hope he perks up a bit more.

    So is this man a kicker?

    I know what he isn't. A host. I take allergy medicine this time of year which makes me sleepy. However, if you don't have allergies, spend some time listening to this guy host.

    Nothing on earth could make me miss him.

    I thought Rodgers did fine. Yes, he's low key, and out of his element. But he did fine as a guest.

    He was low-key, but he knew to call round 1 "The Jeopardy! round" and not just "let's play Jeopardy!" like Katie and Quack did, and he quickly noted that the player with the first daily double could wager more than he had. He truly did prepare for this. I appreciate that.

    Nevermind that. More importantly, he dates interesting ladies that are more than just arm candy. I'm not sure if that's typical for athletes.

    The final jeopardy response refers to a decision by his coach to kick a field goal rather than let Rodgers try to score a touchdown late in a game.

    That's annoying, since I'd probably "make" (aka mix and put in oven!) a cake once in a while if you just had to add water. Heck, I have at least two cake mix boxes in my cabinet (birthday freebies from a grocery store), but haven't made them since I don't have eggs!

    According to Snopes, that story isn’t true.

    Got it. I thought he looked like someone who would play a position where he needed to be big, and a kicker wouldn't have to be.

    I also noticed he was the first guest host to say "could not be caught".

    I'm a day behind so I could watch two other shows.

    He's actually growing on me. A bit low key at the beginning, but now he seems to have found his stride and is actually improving greatly. Monday was awful, but Tuesday was an improvement, and Wednesday I could watch him. Seems more perky and alive. Probably just a rough start.

    I like him, but he takes some getting used to. His hosting persona is so different than what we're used to in a game show quiz show Jeopardy! host that at first it's slightly disconcerting. But as @Worf notes, he grows on you. And he's not afraid to throw in a comment now & then, which many other hosts would not do (sackbut: "I didn't know that either").

    He's the first guest host to not have previous experience as a TV personality. He's accustomed to giving interviews, but that's a whole other ballgame.

    I'm sure he is very familiar with a different version of sackbut (getting sacked on his butt). :D

    I thought it was kind of cute that the answer to Aaron's first show's Final Jeopardy was Mr. Rogers. If it hadn't been for the field goal answer, I bet that would have been commented on.
