The full lineup of "Jeopardy!'s" Celebrity Week, including Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, has been announced.

Three of the fifteen celebrities will compete every day from May 11-15. The winner claims at least $50,000 for a charity of his or her choosing; second- and third-place winners claim at least $10,000 for charity.

Rodgers will be playing for the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer Fund, it has been announced. His episode is set to air May 12. He’ll be going up against “Shark Tank” star Kevin O’Leary and retired astronaut Mark Kelly.

O’Leary posted a photo of the three, along with host Alex Trebek, on Twitter, when they were together to tape the episode in March.
