Aaron Rodgers, Celebrity Jeopardy Winner


Aaron Rodgers' final pass was intercepted, but he won the game anyway!

The Green Bay Packers quarterback emerged triumphant on tonight's episode of Celebrity Jeopardy!, coming out on top against retired astronaut Mark E. Kelly (Gabrielle Giffords' husband) and Shark Tank investor Kevin O'Leary. Not bad, right?

"Had a blast on checking off another bucket list item. Should have said turd ferguson on final jeopardy though. #maccfundwins," Rodgers tweeted afterward, hilariously referencing "Burt Reynolds'" alter ego on those timeless SNL "Celebrity Jeopardy" sketches.

The athlete, who played college football for University of California, Berkeley, had a comfortable lead of $12,800 to Kelly's $8,400 and O'Leary's $1,000 (he had -$2,800, but the rules are a little different for the celeb contestants) heading into Final Jeopardy, but technically it could have all gone wrong.

The category was "Business" and the answer was, "These 2 American businessmen are seen in early 20th century photos." Cue the black and white pics of two guys in a rather odd contraption.

Watch the clip and see what Rodgers put...

So he may not have gotten the correct duo, but he wagered wisely.

Olivia Munn's brainy sweetheart had $8,399 left in the bank, more than enough to walk away with $50,000 for his charity, the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer (MACC) Fund.

Way to go, Aaron!

Tomorrow's Celebrity Jeopardy! contestants include Mo Rocca, Wendi McClendon-Covey and CNN's John Berman.
