Former Vanderbilt quarterback Jordan Rodgers may not have found success as a professional football player, but it certainly did not seem to effect his chances on ABC’s “The Bachelorette.”

The 27-year-old allegedly alienated brother of Green Bay Packers signal caller and two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers emerged victorious in Monday night’s season finale after proposing to this year’s heat-throb, JoJo Fletcher. The youngest Rodgers proposed to Fletcher on a beach in Thailand.
We, as men, wonder how women dream up their fantastically high expectations. Well, there you have it.
After navigating a field of 25 other hair-gelled contestants, Rodgers made it to the three-hour long (yes, three hours) final episode where he and the other remaining suitor, Robbie, met the Fletcher family and attempted to impress their beloved JoJo on one final date.
To the victor go the spoils.

Perhaps the most gossipy story line to emerge from this season’s iteration of the American tragedy that is “The Bachelorette” was the revelation that the Rodgers family apparently has a strained relationship with their Super Bowl-winning offspring, Aaron. In one of the episodes previous, Fletcher was told by Jordan Rodgers that he and Aaron “don’t really have that much of a relationship.”
What better platform than to air the dirty laundry than on national television?
Asked about his brother’s comments when Green Bay’s off-season training camp opened at the end of last week, Aaron Rodgers told reporters, “I haven’t seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn’t really affected me a whole lot.” The All-Pro passer went on to say that, “As far as those kind of things go, I’ve always found that it’s a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters. I’m not going to speak on those things, but I wish him well in the competition.”
On “The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose” special Monday, Jordan Rodgers said that he and Fletcher plan to be married in the coming year and move to Dallas, TX and that Aaron Rodgers still had not met his soon-to-be sister-in-law.
Nothing says family therapy like, “The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose.”
Eldest Rodgers brother Luke will join Jared Stillman Tuesday at 9:45 A.M. on ESPN Nashville to recap his younger brother’s nuptials.
