Jordan Rodgers, who The Bachelorette spoilers say is an early favorite to win JoJo Fletcher's heart, certainly had a strong start last night.
As predicted, however, the 27-year-old's past is already coming back to bite him as he's been put on BLAST by ex-girlfriend Brittany Farrar!
Not even 24 hours after making his TV debut, the ex-NFL quarterback and brother of Aaron Rodgers is under fire on Instagram.
Brittany Farrar slammed him online after the premiere aired, and she insinuated that he cheated on her (as spoilers have also indicated).
“Riding the bench doesn’t get in the way of a relationship, but cheating does,” she wrote, taking a shot at his NFL benchwarmer status.
Even funnier? Her caption was to a classic “Oh snap!” GIF of Chris Pratt as Andy Dwyer from his Parks & Recreation heyday.
Brittany, who clearly knows what she's doing when it comes to stirring the pot online, added the following hilarious hashtags:
And, just so no one was at all unclear about who and what she was talking about, she tagged Jordan Rogers in the post.
Game, set, match ...
Farrar, a personal trainer from Nashville, Tenn., is close friends with Olivia Munn, the model-actress currently dating Aaron Rodgers.
You really can't make this stuff up if you try, people.
Interestingly, Reality Steve - who posted on this subject when he revealed who wins The Bachelorette this season - shed light on this.
According to the Oracle of Bachelorette spoilers, Farrar is close to Munn and Aaron Rodgers, while Jordan, his own brother ... is not.
Very interesting indeed, wouldn't you say?
During The Bachelorette Season 12 premiere, Jordan explained that his football career caused his last relationship to come to an end.
“I was in love, but I was so focused on football that I didn’t make time for anything else,” he noted as he began wooing JoJo on Monday.
We won't give away any big spoilers, but ...
“He and JoJo are really hitting it off,” a source said, and given that Jordan earned JoJo's First Impression Rose on Monday’s episode?
Safe to say he's a top-tier contender.
What's also interesting, if you watch the preview above, is how he's already cast as a "smooth operator" by some of his fellow co-stars.
Moreover, Steve suggests that Jordan was openly admitting to the guys in the mansion that his goal was to become the next Bachelor.
He would not be the first to audition for the sake of his career, and that doesn't mean he didn't legit fall for JoJo, but it begs the question:
Is Rodgers there for the right reasons?
This time-honored cliche rears its ugly head every season as someone's true motives are scrutinized. But here, the critics may have a case.
Yes, the producers know the value of editing and creating drama, but with this guy, there's more material than they know what to do with.
What do you think? Is Rodgers the shady, self-serving villain he's made out to be? Or is this just a ploy for attention by Brittany Farrar?
