Aaron Rodgers Breaks Silence on Brother Jordan’s ‘Bachelorette’ Remarks
Once the villainous Chad-bear was eliminated from this year's increasingly dull season of The Bachelorette, producers scrambled to drum up some fresh, enticing drama to ensure high viewership. They zeroed in on frontrunner Jordan Rodgers and his non-relationship with famous big brother Aaron, quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. The two don't talk, says every single member of the Rodgers family, but the reasoning behind their rift is unclear — and if Aaron has it his way, it'll stay private knowledge.
Aaron addressed their relationship for the first time during an interview with WISN 12 Sports on Tuesday (July 26), and he admitted he hadn’t seen The Bachelorette.
“I haven’t seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn’t really affected me a whole lot,” he said, before hinting he’d likely never broach the subject of family with the press.
"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,” Aaron continued. “So I'm just -- I'm not going to speak on those things, but I wish him well in the competition."
To be fair, Jordan hasn't exactly divulged any deep, dark family secrets, either. But he, JoJo, the Rodgers family and The Bachelorette producers did make it the overarching theme of the hometown visits, piquing viewers' curiosity and unquenchable thirst for drama.
Will we ever know the truth behind the Rodgers' family feud? We can only hope Olivia Munn someday writes a tell-all.
