The tension reached new heights when Rodgers hinted at a connection between Kimmel and Jeffrey Epstein during his appearance on McAfee's show. Kimmel didn't take the insinuation lightly and fired back with a biting monologue on his late-night talk show, painting Rodgers as a caricature of the "dumb jock" stereotype.

But Rodgers isn't one to back down easily. During his next appearance on McAfee's show, he fired back at Kimmel's criticisms and doubled down on his controversial views. It's like watching a verbal sparring match between two heavyweight contenders, each landing blows and countering with their jabs.

What's fascinating for the fans is how Rodgers's appearances on McAfee's show have become must-watch events, drawing in viewers who might not even be sports fans. There's a rawness and authenticity to his discussions, even if they sometimes veer into contentious territory.
