Aaron Rodgers' first night as Jeopardy! guest host was well received by fans, and a highlight of Monday's episode came when the Green Bay Packers quarterback got a lighthearted jab from one contestant.

During the Final Jeopardy round, the previous day's champion Scott Shewfelt evidently didn't know the correct response, but he still decided to make the most of his time with a question for Rodgers.

Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers are spotted out for the FIRST TIME

  Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers are spotted out for the FIRST TIME Shailene Woodley, 29, steps out with Aaron Rodgers in Mexico, in first public outing since the pair announced their surprise engagement in February. It is unclear if they were looking at wedding venuesAnd on Monday the Big Little Lies actress, 29, and the Green Bay Packer, 37, were spotted out for the first time together since the news as they departed from the Costa Careyes beach town in Jalisco, Mexico.

The category was Daytime TV Personalities, and the answer was: "Accepting a Lifetime Achievement Emmy, he said 'Just take … 10 seconds to think of the people who helped you become who you are.'"

When Shewfelt's question was revealed onscreen, it read: "Who decided to kick that field goal?" The joke was in reference to Packers head coach Matt LaFleur's controversial decision to kick a field goal when they were down eight points to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the last two minutes of the NFC championship game in January. The Packers ended up losing to Tom Brady and company, and many fans blamed the loss on LaFleur's choice not to put the ball in Rodger's hands and go for it.

On Monday, Shewfelt's question got a head shake and a chuckle from Rodgers, who was a good sport about the jab.

I've had the opportunity to do a lot of amazing things, but winning Celebrity Jeopardy! and getting to share the stage with the legend Alex Trebek is something I'll never forget. Alex was such a gentleman, so smart, so precise. I was in awe. And I will work hard to honor his legacy."
