'The Bachelorette': JoJo Fletcher chimes in on Jordan - Aaron Rodgers relationship


For anyone not aware, Jordan (a front-runner and the most highly hyped contestant this season) is the younger brother of superstar Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. That's what Bachelorette fans are asking after JoJo Fletcher asked Robby about his ex-girlfriend on last night's episode.

Jordan then admitted that he is "so in love" with JoJo, and "it's so real".

You will get to meet Jordan Rodgers' parents and also his brother Luke when JoJo goes home to meet his family. "I really do need you to know that, I don't even really know how to say it, but I'm falling in love with you", he says, as JoJo stares at the ground.

There was some vague talk about Jordan disapproving of his brother's lack of closeness to the family, including oldest brother Luke, and some backtracking of the criticism, but it's clear that there's a rift of some sort. He had a heart-to-heart with JoJo about really wanting to make it to hometown visits so she can meet his family, but alas that was not enough; she let him go in the final rose ceremony of the night.

This week on The Bachelorette, JoJo Fletcher picked the four guys that she would take on hometown dates.

"Everything Jordan shared with me at dinner really opened my eyes up to the man that he is. We just all kind of have this competitive streak".

Over dinner, the suitor made a decision to put it all out there and tell JoJo he was in love with her. And since Simmons does watch The Bachelor and Bachelorette, one can imagine that he will ask Aaron about his relationship with his brother and family. E! Online shared the details about how the relationship between Aaron and Jordan will end up being talked about a lot next week on the show. "I'm way past that relationship".

Tonight, Alex Woytkiw gets the first solo date, followed by Jordan Rodgers receiving the other one.

The sepia tones continued as Jordan explains his life living in Aaron's shadow, which has grown considerably large, and how - at the time of taping, anyway - Jordan wasn't even sure if his famous middle brother knew he was going on the show. "In my heart, I don't think I would get to that point", she said. And that indeed won him the one-on-one rose from Bachelorette JoJo.

Jordan Rodgers played QB at Vanderbilt and had a brief National Football League career before appearing on "The Bachelorette".

Unfortunately, he was not as successful as his brother Aaron Rodgers professionally.

"Yeah, Aaron", Jordan said, nervously. "Her name is JoJo", he beamed and the bachelorette reciprocated his feelings by letting the singer-songwriter know that she felt "loved and cared for and appreciated". "And not having a great relationship with my brother Aaron, or what people think that relationship should be, didn't define me". It's awesomely low budget and clearly a last-minute fix for some bad weather, but actually it's a great way for JoJo to see what it's like to hang with Robby, Chase, and James T.in a more relaxed, tipsy environment.
