When ABC producers first casted Jordan, the Bachelorette was Cailia Quinn, who Rodgers had no interest in. “Jordan wasn’t stoked when it was Caila. He had no desire to date her.” It only fueled his drive to use the show as a stepping stone for his career.

But when they made a last minute switch, Jordan was excited it was JoJo.

“In the beginning yes, Jordan went on the show for his career,” his friend said. "But then it 100 percent switched. He was really into JoJo. He definitely fell in love with her.”
