“The Bachelorette” host Chris Harrison might act as cupid on the ABC reality show, but he’s not mending broken families. Tried as he might Monday night, Chris Harrison couldn’t get Season 12 winner Jordan Rodgers to open up about his pro football player brother, Aaron Rodgers.
Nasty tabloid rumors have surrounded JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers relationship since the start of the season. However, one hot topic was actually brought up on-screen — Jordan and his family’s non-existent relationship with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Prior to hometown dates, Jordan confessed to JoJo that she would not be meeting his famous brother because they don’t talk. In fact, he revealed that Aaron didn’t even know that he joined the ABC reality show. Chris Harrison tried to pry into that relationship during the “After the Final Rose” special on Monday night, but Jordan wasn’t willing to expose any more family secrets.
“We’re keeping it between us,” he said, awkwardly shutting down the conversation when asked how things are with his brother Aaron. However, JoJo revealed that, despite getting engaged to Jordan in the finale, she has yet to meet his brother.
“It’s not the focus for us right now,” they explained, with Jordan adding that they’re focusing on other things, like moving to Dallas, Texas, and planning their wedding.
Prior to the “After the Final Rose” special, Aaron Rodgers admitted to WISN that he hadn’t watched his younger brother on “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 to press at the Green Bay Packers training camp last month. He did add that he thought it was “a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters.”
“I’m not going to speak on those things,” he continued. “But I wish him well in the competition.”
Chris Harrison ended the topic by saying that he hoped Aaron would be able to make it to Jordan and JoJo’s wedding. Jordan quickly said that they haven’t even set a date yet for the nuptials.
