The Bachelorette 2016 frontrunner Jordan Rodgers recently opened up about his relationship with his brother, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The former football player admitted that they had a “complicated” relationship, to the surprise of fans.
During Katie Nolan’s Garbage Time podcast last Thursday, Jordan Rodgers shared that he is a fan of the Green Bay Packers. He also mentioned that “one of his best friends in the world,” David Bakhtiari, plays for the team. However, when Nolan asked about his relationship with his older brother, Aaron, The Bachelorette 2016 star revealed that they are actually not that close.
“We have a relationship. It’s complicated. I’ll say that.”
Jordan, however, believes that Aaron watches The Bachelorette, pointing out that “everybody watches the show.”

In the preview for tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette 2016, JoJo Fletcher was seen having another heart-to-heart talk with Jordan Rodgers. She confronted him after hearing about “an altercation,” which she described as “very unbecoming” of Jordan.
Even before the Season 12 premiere, multiple insiders, including Reality Steve, predicted that JoJo will end up giving the final rose to Jordan. It seems, however, that the 25-year-old real estate developer is having a change of heart because of the incident. JoJo cannot seem to shake the feeling that Jordan is hiding “the real him” from her.
“I hate hearing that because I have this idea of you in my head that I feel is accurate and then to hear it was Jordan acting entitled and very, like, snobby… I don’t like that,” Fletcher said.

During his confession, Rodgers defended himself against the allegations. He explained that character and integrity is very important to him, and did not appreciate people questioning it. Rodgers added that he did not see himself above the other The Bachelorette 2016 contestants.
“Character is huge for me. That’s how my parents brought me up so any time that’s questioned — especially by someone that I was friends with — is pathetic.”
In last week’s episode of The Bachelorette 2016, Fletcher asked Rodgers point blank if he cheated on his ex-girlfriend, Brittany Farrar. Fans of the show may remember that the fitness trainer took to Instagram, during The Bachelorette premiere, and accused him of cheating. Without missing a beat, Rodgers said that he never cheated on Farrar. He, however, said that while he did not “physically cheat” on her, he flirted with several women while he was still in the relationship.
While his explanation seemed good enough for her at that point, an insider close to The Bachelorette told Us Weekly, that JoJo Fletcher still felt that something was off with Jordan Rodgers. He may look like the frontrunner in the previous episodes, but the source claimed that Fletcher was having mixed feelings about the former football player.
“She feels like she’s the one courting him. She continues to have doubts,” the source said.
A friend of Rodgers, meanwhile, told the publication that Fletcher had no reason to doubt his sincerity. While he can be dubbed as a “ladies’ man,” he said that Rodgers is a good person and definitely not a player.
According to Reality Steve‘s earlier prediction, Derek Peth will end up going home in tonight’s episode, Episode 6. The final rose will be given to Chase McNary but not before a dramatic episode happens. In the latest promo clip, Fletcher was seen having a meltdown and running away from the contestants even before the rose ceremony took place.
The Bachelorette 2016 episode 6 airs tonight, June 27 on ABC. Watch the promo below.
