The first female host of the show, Patrick delivered an entertaining but not outstanding monologue, appeared in a couple hilarious prerecorded skits and made her red carpet debut with boyfriend and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

"Danica learned to drive when she was nine, because that's when I got my fifth DUI", the mother character tells the camera. She also joked that the football star probably has fewer tickets - adding she once got pulled over three times in three days. First linked late past year, the pair confirmed their romance in January.

Patrick and Rodgers have been dating since the beginning of the year, and since then, have been canoodling all across the country together, including most recently at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe. Every year, I leave feeling so inspired! Patrick recalled in May on "The Jenny McCarthy Show" her and Rodgers' first meeting.

"Tiger Woods is back, sort of, I guess", she said. "He's one of the greatest basketball players of all time".

Patrick soldiered on, telling the audience, "We have to mention the elephant in the room".

"He's amusing, he's very kind, he's thoughtful, he's super smart", Patrick said of Rodgers.

Browns rookie Baker Mayfield won the award for the Best College Athlete. The former professional racer was so excited to host the 2018 ESPYS but her monologue bombed hard, as did her pre-taped "comedic" skits.
