What Happened Between Aaron Rodgers & His Family? Jordan's Family Stays Mum On 'The Bachelorette'

JoJo’s season of The Bachelorette has been pretty good so far, but I think there’s a serious frontrunner for her heart — Jordan Rodgers. The former NFL player has pretty much swept her off her feet, and even though there are three other guys, I feel like Jordan is the one for JoJo. But there’s one big black cloud that’s hanging over Jordan’s involvement on the show — his brother, Aaron Rodgers, who is the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. But, what happened between Aaron Rodgers and his family? The Bachelorette didn't really offer any answers.

Jordan has given JoJo details little by little as the season has gone on, and he’s basically claimed that Aaron doesn’t really speak to his family anymore. But, that’s all that Jordan says, and that’s all that his brother, Luke, said, too, when JoJo pressed him about it. On one hand it’s like, hey, JoJo  they don’t want to talk about this. But on the other hand, it’s like, hey, Jordan, we all want to know what happened between you and your famous older brother. Bachelor Nation wants answers, and I have a feeling that we’re never going to get them. Bustle reached out to Aaron for comment, but has not yet received a response.

And that’s fine — they’re a semi-private family and it’s not really our business. What I want, though, is for JoJo to stop asking Jordan about it. He (and the rest of the Rodgers clan) are so clearly uncomfortable with the topic — especially on camera — that JoJo should know when to drop the subject. Maybe the producers wanted her to ask? Maybe JoJo is a big football fan? Either way, she needs to move on or wait until cameras stop rolling if she’s going to continue to pry.
