Ahead of his stint as guest host on the televised game show series, Woodley gave her fiancé a similar shout-out while the pair were driving together.

Sharing a video to her Instagram Story on Monday, Woodley was seen sitting in the passenger seat of a car as Rodgers drove them, when she declared, "I have a very important announcement to make."

"This guy right here is super sexy, super attractive ... just shaved his neck this morning. Has a little man bun growing," she continued, turning the camera to get her fiancé in the frame. "This guy is hosting Jeopardy! tonight!"

After telling her followers that they should tune in for the episode, she asked Rodgers for a sneak peek. "What's gonna happen?" she asked.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback then told viewers to be prepared for everything, saying, "There's some laughs, maybe some tears, excitement, mystery," before adding, "You never know."

Woodley and Rodgers were first romantically linked back in February. At the time, PEOPLE confirmed their relationship with a source sharing that Rodgers was very happy with Woodley.

Then days later, the Green Bay Packers quarterback announced their surprise engagement in his acceptance speech when he was named the league's MVP during the NFL Honors broadcast on Feb. 6.

"It's an honor to win this award for the third time. 2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change and growth, some amazing memorable moments. 180 straight days of having my nose hair scraped, playing for very little fans or no stands the entire season," he said of playing amid the COVID pandemic, before revealing the big news: "I got engaged."

Rodgers also thanked his loved ones, including his bride-to-be, though he did not mention Woodley by name at the time.

Later in February, Woodley confirmed their engagement, telling late-night host Jimmy Fallon: "Yes, we are engaged. But for us, it's not new news, you know, so it's kind of funny. Everyone right now is freaking out over it and we're like, 'Yeah, we've been engaged for a while.'"
