The Bachelor/Bachelorette is one of my guilty pleasures. I used to change the channel when my roommates came home to avoid the heap of shit thrown my way, but now I’ve fully embraced it. Not because I believe in the concept–finding a lifelong partner in three months is about as realistic as finding Big Foot at Coachella–but I take pleasure in how tooly the dudes are and how hot the girls are. CHICKS, man. I watch it for the CHICKS! Can I have my man card back?
The newest season of The Bachelorette kicked off last night and one of the biggest early storylines surrounds Jordan Rodgers–younger brother of Aaron Rodgers and former Vanderbilt QB who had a short stint with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Jordan is up against a slew of dudes vying for the love (or something) of Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher–a 25-year-old real estate developer. His early marks: A+. The dude gave a goddamn tutorial on how to exit a limousine. He fed her some bullshit about his parents getting married after a couple months and I thought Jo-Jo was going to drop to her knees right then and there. She gave him the COVETED first impression rose and if I were a betting man I’d bet the family farm that Rodgers is the runaway favorite to take JoJo’s hand in marriage for a few months before a bitter divorce.
Jordan’s ex-girlfriend Brittany Farrar took to Instagram afte the season premier to knock him don a couple pegs and expose him for his past cheating ways and his skills as a football player. As if being the brother of one of the best QB’s on the planet hasn’t given Jordan an inferiority complex already. GULP.
How the tides have turned. Rodgers went from winner to loser in the matter of seconds. The only one who may have a tougher time getting back in JoJo’s good graces is the poor bastard who had to follow up Rodger’s suave limo exit.
