From the moment Jordan Rodgers emerged as the frontrunner on The Bachelorette, it’s been one scandal after another, forcing the former pro football stud to constantly confess or defend himself to JoJo Fletcher. Click through to find out all of his dirty and shady secrets!
He clearly didn’t even want to propose! In the final episode, Jordan expresses doubt about marrying Fletcher, saying ring shopping was “overwhelming” and he was “nervous.”
But Rodgers started out the show with controversy when his name just so happened to be leaked before the contestants were announced, prompting people to claim he had an unfair advantage. The former pro footballer also reportedly used his connections and got on the show through a producer friend he knew.
“JoJo freaked out when she found out Aaron's little brother was going to be on the show, even without meeting him, she knew he was the perfect guy for her because he's from a rich and famous family,” a source said.
All of the men accused Jordan of not being there for “the right reasons,” but sources close to the former athlete told Reality Steve that “Jordan wants to be a sports reporter so bad that he would do anything to chase the fame.”
But JoJo never cared! When asked about rumors surrounding Jordan, the brunette beauty defended Rodgers saying she was “indifferent to the rumors” — but never the other men!
Before vying for JoJo’s heart, Jordan was reportedly dating a woman named Brittany Farrar and she accused him of cheating in a heated Instagram post. “Riding the bench doesn't get in the way of a relationship, but cheating does. #yourpitchisntperfect @jrodgers11 #alwayswantedtobefamous #dreamscometrue #tuneinnextweekformoreBS @bacheloretteabc,” she wrote.

But is JoJo enough? Apparently not! Jordan was accused of having an active account on celebrity dating site Raya, which he said was “completely false” in a statement. "I would not be dumb enough to breach my contract or do anything related to a dating app to give any insight to what may or may not have happened on the show,” he said.

However, one source admitted to Reality Steve that Jordan used to flirt with her on Raya, told her that he “never felt this way about a girl before” and seemed “fame hungry.” Another woman claims to have hooked up with him using the app.
