Could it be that the most dramatic angle to JoJo Fletcher’s stint as “The Bachelorette” is the fact that she hasn’t met her fiancé (former pro quarterback) Jordan Rodgers’ brother Aaron Rodgers (the decidedly higher profile Green Bay Packers quarterback)?
On Monday night’s “After the Final Rose” special, host Chris Harrison asked if Jordan’s relationship with Aaron had changed.
His non-answer, according to USA Today, was: “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.”
Fletcher’s response to a query about whether she met Aaron: “No, I mean it’s the same situation that it’s been, but… it’s not the focus for us right now.”
Aaron’s comments about “The Bachelorette” are more pointed. He told Wisconsin station WISN, “I haven’t seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn’t really affected me a whole lot.”
On Jordan’s hometown date, Aaron and his girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn, were absent, and Munn told “Entertainment Tonight” the situation between the siblings is “complicated.”
So here’s more from the incestuous “Bachelor”/”Bachelorette” world: Brittany Farrar, a personal trainer, acquaintance of Munn, and Jordan’s ex, called him out on social media, accusing him of seeking, fame — not love — on TV.
Farrar’s Instagram links her to other “Bachelor” franchise folks, including Shawntel Newton — a fellow Chico native who appeared on Brad Womack and Ben Flajnik’s seasons of “The Bachelor” — and her sister, Destiny, who has been romantically tied to Aaron.
