    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is addressing his brother's time on "The Bachelorette" one week before the show's finale.

    In a new interview with WISN, the former Super Bowl MVP admitted that he hasn't watched Jordan Rodgers compete for JoJo Fletcher's heart on the ABC reality series. At the same time, he wishes his brother well going into the final episode.

    "I haven't seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn't really affected me a whole lot," he shared during training camp.

    When asked to elaborate on the nature of his relationship with Jordan, Aaron said he would like to keep things private.

    Pig Escapes Slaughterhouse Fate, Sells Original Paintings

    [NATL] Pig Escapes Slaughterhouse Fate, Sells Original Paintings

    A pig who escaped slaughter is now living out her life in a South African sanctuary and painting original works that have sold for up to $2,000.

    "She was really small when I rescued her," said Joanne Lefson, who manages the South African Farm Sanctuary, a haven for rescued farm animals where the pig now lives. "She's very smart and intelligent so I placed a few balls and some paintbrushes and things in her pen, and it wasn't long before I discovered that she really liked the bristles and the paintbrush...She just really took a knack for it."

    Funds from the art sales go towards the sanctuary.

    "As far as those kinds of things go, I've always found that it's a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I'm just--I'm not going to speak on those things," he said. "But I wish him well in the competition."

    Earlier in the season, Fletcher traveled to Jordan's high school where a photo of Aaron was placed on the wall. Jordan would later admit that he's been estranged from his older brother for the last two years.

    "It doesn't need to be a topic," Jordan said before introducing Fletcher to his family during hometown dates. "I'll just tell them we talked about it, and yeah."

    Brother Luke Rodgers added, "It's something we don't really like to talk about a lot. It pains both of us not to have that relationship. We miss our brother. We just are trusting that God brings things full circle. And just wish that everything would just get back to us being a family."

    If the family dynamics impacted Fletcher, the 25-year-old didn't show it. In fact, Jordan Rodgers is now competing against Robby Hayes for the final rose.
