This past Monday night, JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette began, and it was one that was full of shocking moments, first kisses, and so much more. After the episode was over, and even during the airing of it, there was a lot of backlash coming in about the guys. Many secrets from the past have been revealed about some of the suitors and it could have Jordan Rodgers, Robby Hayes, Grant Kemp, and others in some hot water.
Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the new and upcoming season of The Bachelorette starring JoJo Fletcher. If you don’t want to know them, stop reading now.
The season premiere of JoJo’s season is one that saw a lot of drunkenness, a horse with a unicorn horn, someone jumping in the pool, and a lot of hostility. Well, little did anyone realize that there was a lot more hostility happening outside of the televised world at the same time.
First of all, PEOPLE is reporting that Brittany Farrar, an ex-girlfriend of Jordan Rodgers, decided to go on a tear on Monday night. On the season premiere of The Bachelorette, Rodgers said he retired from professional football, as it caused his previous relationship to come to an end.
Farrar says she is Rodgers’ ex, and she decided to take a not-so-subtle jab at the frontrunner for JoJo Fletcher’s heart.
Farrar is close friends with Olivia Munn, who happens to be the longtime girlfriend of Aaron Rodgers, aka Jordan’s brother. There’s no real way of knowing how much truth there is to Farrar’s words, but there’s actually much more drama aimed at Jordan Rodgers.
Reality Steve is reporting that during the course of Monday night’s episode, he got emails confirming a lot of his suspicions about the former football player.
“In a span of about 45 minutes last night, I got FOUR new emails regarding women Jordan has been with, which did nothing but confirm everything I told you about last week. It’s crazy. I didn’t ask for it, and it’s nothing I hadn’t heard of about the guy before, but geez. It’s coming in droves.”
Jordan Rodgers wasn’t the only suitor under fire on Monday’s premiere of The Bachelorette. According to Wet Paint, Grant Kemp decided that his longtime girlfriend wasn’t worth keeping around once he got accepted to be on the show and to go after JoJo Fletcher.
According to a friend of his former longtime girlfriend, Kemp was introduced to the producers of The Bachelorette through his ex, since she is a reality television executive. She says he then went behind her back to get on the show and dumped her once he was accepted. Since then, Kemp has responded and, a number of his ex-girlfriend’s other friends are lashing back out at him.

It will be interesting to see if this story unfolds more throughout the season, as he lasts a while, according to the order of rose ceremony eliminations. Maybe his story will come out and he will state how they had been broken up a while, but only time will tell.
While the drama was taking place off-screen for Jordan Rodgers and Grant Kemp, there was more taking place on-screen for Robby Hayes. In the season preview after the first episode of The Bachelorette, there were some serious moments and discussions between him and JoJo Fletcher about whether or not he has a girlfriend.
Bustle recapped how the preview saw JoJo flat-out ask Robby Hayes if he dumped his girlfriend the night before he left to tape the show. He simply said that he did not and that everything he was telling her was the absolute truth.
Once again, though, all spoilers point to JoJo believing Robby, as he does end up making it into her final four on the season.
JoJo Fletcher has a big decision to make on the 2016 season of The Bachelorette, and since all has already been taped, you can find out what decision she makes here. The backlash coming forth from different women about some of the guys (Jordan Rodgers, Grant Kemp) is more than ever before, and it may only get worse. Maybe none of it is true, but it seems to be far too many to be a coincidence.
