JoJo Fletcher only just started her journey as star of ABC’s “The Bachelorette,” but she’s already rumored to have a front-runner in mind.
The 25-year-old real estate developer is said to have her sights set on one Season 12 contestant with a famous sibling. Us Weekly reports that JoJo, who was runner-up in Ben Higgins’ season of “The Bachelor,” is interested in Jordan Rodgers, brother of NFL star Aaron Rodgers. The magazine reports that Jordan has already “scored roses” from the reality star.
“He and JoJo are really hitting it off,” a “show source” revealed. The insider went on to call Jordan, a former American football quarterback, a clear “front-runner.”
While it is unclear if JoJo has shared a kiss with the athlete, she has smooched several suitors so far this season. “Bachelor” creator Mike Fleiss revealed the total kiss count on Twitter on Wednesday.

Unfortunately for Jordan, it doesn’t appear JoJo is ready to choose her winner just yet. On Saturday, she was spotted with an unnamed, brunette contestant on a one-on-one date for the show. OK! magazine obtained photos of the outing, which show JoJo and her suitor holding hands on an airport tarmac.
JoJo was eliminated in the Season 20 finale of “The Bachelor” this month. After Ben called her his best friend and broke one of the show’s cardinal rules by saying he loved her, he eliminated her in favor of now fiancée Lauren Bushnell. Following the season finale, ABC revealed JoJo would star in Season 12 of “The Bachelorette.”
JoJo’s season of “The Bachelorette” premieres Monday, May 23, at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC.
