Jordan Rodgers is ready to move forward with JoJo Fletcher but still hasn’t fixed his relationship with his brother Aaron Rodgers.
Despite making it to the finale of The Bachelorette and taking home Fletcher’s final rose, Aaron still won’t talk the Jordan. How did Fletcher react to the family drama?
People is reporting that Fletcher confirmed Jordan’s bad relationship with the Green Bay Packers quarterback during the “After the Final Rose” special.
In speaking with Chris Harrison, Fletcher admitted that she still hasn’t met Aaron, and it’s been two months since The Bachelorette ended.
“It’s the same situation that it’s been, but it’s not something that we – it’s not the focus for us right now, it’s about us,” Fletcher told Harrison.
Jordan echoed Fletcher’s sentiments and emphasized their future together.
“Anything with my family, JoJo’s been a part of my family, and any conversations we have about that moving forward are with us and about us, and we’re excited about starting that journey with our families,” he shared. “I’ll be in Dallas closer to her family, and so we’re ready for that.”
When Harrison joked about inviting Aaron to the wedding, Jordan revealed that they haven’t set a date yet.
The family drama reached a high point during the hometown visits when Jordan opened up about his estranged brother. Even Jordan’s brother Luke told JoJo that the family doesn’t like to talk about Aaron.
Following Jordan’s comments about his brother, Aaron told a Wisconsin news outlet that he hasn’t even watched the show yet.
“I haven’t seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn’t really affected me a whole lot,” Aaron explained.
Although Jordan and Fletcher are open to developing a relationship with Aaron, the reality star admitted that the situation is difficult to navigate.
“It’s tough,” Jordan said. “There’s not a playbook in how to deal with this.”
Meanwhile, with family drama still the focal point, Washington Post is reporting that Fletcher is tired of the same old narrative. Instead of reading about Jordan’s estranged brother, Fletcher wishes she could enjoy the moment of their engagement.
“That hurts me,” Fletcher told Harrison. “Not because I think it’s true, but it’s just hard to have that on you when it should be a really amazing time in your life.”
Apart from the issues with Aaron, Jordan has faced a number of different criticisms this season. Namely, many questioned his motivation for being on the show and believed he was only in the game for fame and fortune.
Fortunately, Jordan was able to win Fletcher’s heart despite all the negative publicity.
How did he do it?
For starters, Jordan and Fletcher really hit it off from the very beginning of The Bachelorette. Not only was he the first contestant out of the limo to meet Fletcher, but he also landed her first kiss.
Later in the season, when rumors about Jordan’s personal life were swirling, he was honest with Fletcher about everything. He even opened up about past girlfriends and why some of his relationships never panned out.
The same can’t be said of Fletcher’s runner-up, Robby Hayes.
Then, Jordan sealed the deal and gained Fletcher’s ultimate trust when he discussed his relationship with Aaron and how they don’t talk anymore.
Now that The Bachelorette, Fletcher and Jordan can start to put all the drama behind them.
According to Hollywood Life, the new couple recently sat down for an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live. When asked to play The Newlywed Game, the pair answered a surprising number of questions correctly.
Cleary, the two are starting to move on and are looking forward to starting a new life together.
