GREEN BAY, Wis. – Aaron Rodgers’ first week as a guest host of Danger! it has been a great success from a main perspective.
Each day for each guest presenter, the show is combining the amount of money won by the winner, plus $ 2,000 for the runner-up and $ 1,000 for the runner-up, to a cause of the presenter’s choice. Halfway through his 10 episodes as the host of the iconic television curiosity program, the program donated $ 117,725 to the North Valley Community Foundation, a nonprofit organization located in his hometown, Chico, California.
Rodgers recently donated $ 1 million to NVCF’s Aaron Rodgers Small-Business Covid-19 Fund. Eighty companies received significant aid in the first round of financing; Rodgers’ Danger! the money will help create a second round of subsidies.
“(This donation) is an incredible amount of money that will go so far and change the lives of so many people,” Rodgers said. “People who have lost hope. Companies that are on the verge of bankruptcy. This cause means a lot to me and I am very, very grateful for the money we have raised. “
While Week 1 for Rodgers was a success for the North Valley Community Foundation, was it enough of an audience success for Rodgers to live his dream?
“I’m not ashamed to say that I want the job,” he recently told The Ringer. “I don’t think I would have to give up football to do that. They film 46 days a year. I worked 187 this year in Green Bay. That gives me … 178 days to do ‘Jeopardy!’ So I feel like I could fit 46 into that 178 and make it work. It would be a dream job, for sure. “
Nielsen’s ratings will play a role in that decision. Although the ratings were strong when former champion Ken Jennings was the host, they fell under Katie Couric and fell further with Dr. Oz in the pulpit.
Assessments for Rodgers’ first week are not available.
There is another Danger! guest hosts in the pipeline. The show is unlikely to announce a permanent host until the new season begins in September, Deseret News reported.
