Jordan Rodgers had some harsh things to say about his brother, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers, during Monday’s episode of “The Bachelorette.”
During a one-on-one date with Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher, Jordan Rodgers, considered a front-runner on the dating show, opened up about his family, revealing that he doesn’t talk to his brother Aaron Rodgers anymore.
In fact, Jordan’s superstar brother may not even know he’s on the show.
The conversation all began while Jordan was listing the family members Fletcher might meet during the home town date next week.
The list included his parents, his oldest brother Luke-- even Luke’s dog.
“And, um, my middle brother won’t be there,” he said.
He goes on to say he and Aaron “don’t really have that much of a relationship.”
“It’s just kind of the way he’s chosen to do life,” Jordan said. “I chose to stay close with my family and my parents and my brother.”
Jordan recovers slightly by saying, “I love [Aaron] 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 that he has.”
Then, Fletcher asks if the quarterback even knows his brother is on “The Bachelorette.”
“I don’t think so,” Jordan says.
He later addresses concerns from other contestants that he's "entitled," a topic that once again brings up his brother.
"At every step of my life I was just kind of disappointed and no matter what I did it was never good enough for a coach or for a teammate because I was being compared to someone who did it the best," Jordan says. "When I walked away from playing, I could have kept playing, but football didn’t define me and not having a great relationship with my brother Aaron, or what people think that relationship should be, didn’t define me."
In the end, Fletcher gave Jordan a rose, but it appears there is more Aaron talk to come during the hometown visit – a lot more.
