Aaron Rodgers shared a photo from the "Jeopardy!" podium showing all of his preparation notes.
Among them was a note that read, "Don't pick your butt/nose."
Rodgers prepared for hosting as if it were an NFL playoff game and is eyeing the position full-time.
Aaron Rodgers left himself a bunch of reminders while hosting "Jeopardy!"
Among them: "Don't pick your nose/butt."
The Green Bay Packers quarterback on Wednesday shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the "Jeopardy!" podium, which included several sticky notes as reminders about how to host. They included simple tips like "Relax," "Slow down," and "Stand up straight."
Rodgers said the tip "Speak less" was a reference to Paul Rudd's character in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall."
As for the butt/nose-picking, Rodgers wrote, "The last one, was just to check if anyone was looking at my podium between games. Turns out, John the stage manager was, and we had a good laugh about it."
According to NBC's Peter King, Rodgers approached his preparation for the show as if it were an NFL playoff game. Rodgers reportedly spent hours studying old episodes and even went through practice rounds to prepare for specific scenarios.
"That was the most important thing: to understand the show inside and out from the host's perspective," Rodgers told The Ringer's Claire McNear. "It's way different than being a fan just casually watching it and answering questions on your couch. Being able to actually control the game and understand every point of the game, and what can happen to usher the game through each of the beat points of the show - that was really important for me to totally grasp before I went on."
He added: "It's taped, so there's opportunity for pickups and redoing things, but I'm a perfectionist, and I didn't want to have a lot of those. I wanted to be really, really locked in."
Already Rodgers has had some humorous moments that have gone semi-viral on the internet. In one episode, a contestant asked why the Packers kicked a field goal instead of going for a touchdown late in the NFC Championship. Rodgers hung his head, smiled, and said, "That's a great question."
In another, Rodgers joked when the contestants didn't know the answer to a clue was about the Packers.
"Jeopardy!" executive producer Michael Richards told King that he saw Rodgers get more comfortable each day.
Rodgers told McNear that he would love the opportunity to be the permanent host and believes he could do it while juggling football.
Richards told King, "What I find fascinating about Aaron is his second career could be better than his first."
