Aaron Rodgers' younger brother Jordan is a finalist on The Bachelorette this season, but you're not going to hear the Packers quarterback bragging about it during the NFL season. That's because, according to Jordan, his relationship with Aaron is "complicated" right now. "Me and Aaron don't really have that much of a relationship," Jordan told JoJo Fletcher on a recent episode of the show. "It's just kind of how he's chosen to live his life."
Jordan hasn't expanded on the Rodgers' familial drama much on The Bachelorette, but he has let it be known that Aaron isn't involved in many family activities these days, which is why he wasn't there when Jordan brought JoJo home to meet his family. "I chose to stay close to my family and my parents and my brother," he said on the show. "Yeah, it’s not ideal, and I love [Aaron]. I can’t imagine what it’s like to be in his shoes and have the pressure he has and the demands from people that he has. [I] don’t have hard feelings against him. It’s just how things go right now.”
And while Jordan is, at the very least, willing to speak in broad terms about Aaron, Aaron doesn't seem like he's open to talking about his strained relationship with his family. On the first day of Packers' training camp this week, ABC WISN asked him what he thought about his brother's reality show appearance, and he admitted that he hasn't even bothered to watch a single episode of the show. "I haven’t seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn’t really affected me a whole lot," he said, before throwing some subtle shade at Jordan for putting the Rodgers family's business on national TV. "As far as those kinds of things go, I’ve always found that it’s a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I’m just—I’m not going to speak on those things, but I wish him well in the competition."
Jordan will find out whether or not he won The Bachelorette competition next Monday night. But even if he does, he probably shouldn't expect a "Congratulations!" from his brother.
