Jordan Rodgers finally got real with JoJo about his famous brother, Aaron Rodgers, on the July 11 episode of ‘The Bachelorette,’ and she was shocked to find out just how strained their relationship is. Can you believe Aaron had NO IDEA his bro even signed up for the show?!
JoJo Fletcher, 25, could not believe it when Jordan Rodgers, 27, opened up about his relationship (or lack thereof) with his well-known brother, Aaron Rodgers on The Bachelorette. What really baffled her, though, is when Jordan admitted he hadn’t even told his bro that he was going on the reality show! Watch here!
“I have a great relationship with my brother, Luke. Me and Aaron don’t really have that much of a relationship,” Jordan told JoJo during their one-on-one date. “It’s just, kind of, the way he’s chosen to do life and I chose to stay close with my family and my parents and my brother. So, it’s not ideal, and I love him and I can’t imagine what it’s like to be in his shoes and have the pressure he has and the demands from people he has. I don’t have hard feelings against him, it’s just how things go right now.”
Family is very important to JoJo, so she was definitely affected by Jordan opening up about this, but she was really shocked when he admitted that he “doesn’t think” Aaron even knew he was doing The Bachelorette. “So, you guys don’t talk at all?” she asked, clearly a little concerned. “No, not really,” Jordan admitted.
Still, JoJo seems really into the former football player, and was absolutely ecstatic when he told her he loves her later in the evening. Jordan was given a rose during this week’s episode, along with Chase, Robby and Luke. That meant James and Alex were sent home right before the hometown dates.
Jordan has previously admitted to having a “complicated” relationship with the Green Pay Packers’ quarterback, but from what he told JoJo, it definitely seems to be even more strained than he let on. Looks like she won’t be meeting Aaron when she visits Jordan’s family next week!
HollywoodLifers, are you shocked that Aaron didn’t even know Jordan was on the show?
