Aaron Rodgers Fails Wisconsin Question on “Celebrity Jeopardy!”

Rodgers came into Final Jeopardy with a lead, but he missed a question straight out of Wisconsin

Aaron Rodgers proved he's more than just a cheesehead in his appearance on "Celebrity Jeopardy!", but when it came to his knowledge of Wisconsin history, the Green Bay Packers quarterback fell short. 

Rodgers walked away a winner Tuesday after beating out retired astronaut Mark Kelly and entrepreneur Kevin O’Leary on the show.

He came into Final Jeopardy with $12,800, leading Kelly, who had $8,400 and O’Leary, who had $1,000, but he missed a question straight out of Wisconsin.

The answer to the final question, which was in the “Business” category, was, “These two American businessmen are seen in early 20th century photos.” The answer was paired with two black and white photos of men on vehicles that resemble a modern day motorcycle.

Rodgers' answer: Ernst and Young.

The correct answer: Who is William Harley and Arthur Davidson-- motorcycle manufacturers who began their legacy in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In fact, the city is home to the Harley-Davidson museum. 

Despite Rodgers’ final answer flub, the athlete still came out a champion, winning $50,000 for his charity, the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer Fund.
