He's now a front-runner and it sounds like numerous men on The Bachelorette are feeling a bit threatened by the fact that Jordan's brother is the famous Green Bay quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. When Jordan was revealed as one of JoJo Fletcher's suitors, there were lots of jokes about how Aaron - and his girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn - could possibly make an appearance if Jordan made it to the "home town date" stage.
Reality Steve has said in his spoilers blog for "The Bachelorette" that Jordan signed up for the dating series so he can hopefully get a shot at stardom or possibly become the next "Bachelor". "It's just kind of the way he's chosen to do life". To be fair, Jordan did acknowledge that he couldn't imagine all of the pressure his brother has on him and he doesn't have hard feelings against him. 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.
The question still remains why she didn't send him home during the previous rose ceremony, but it's clear that JoJo wants to give each man as much of a chance as possible.
Emotionally cautious Chase couldn't bring himself to admit to more than really, really liking JoJo but did say he wanted to spend his life with her.
Jordan Talks About Brother Aaron Rodgers on The Bachelorette
Meanwhile, speculation about the breakup of JoJo and Jordan also looms if it is true that the former will be picking the latter over Hayes.
"Not really", Aaron confirmed.
Fletcher then asked if Aaron knew his brother was appearing on the show and if they talk at all. JoJo walked him outside and they both cried. "We just all kind of have this competitive streak". The last time that Aaron and Jordan were photographed together in public was back in 2014. For the less cynical, or those among us more willing to suspend disbelief, watching contestants choose when, where, or whether or not to tell JoJo they love her is like watching an Olympic gymnast on the balance beam. It will definitely be interesting to see how this story develops on the next episode of The Bachelorette as JoJo does think that the rift with Jordan's brother could be a huge issue they have to deal with. Jordan admitted that he had a strained relationship with his pro quarterback older brother, Aaron Rodgers. That evening, Alex tells JoJo that he loves her. "I could've kept playing, but football didn't define me", Jordan said, referencing his brief NFL career.
Next week, hometowns and JoJo confronts Robby about his ex and learns more about Jordan's estrangement from brother Aaron. "And not having a great relationship with my brother Aaron, or what people think that relationship should be, didn't define me".
