We were all very hopeful when it was first revealed that the younger brother of QB Aaron Rodgers would be a contestant on this season of The Bachelorette. JoJo envisioned becoming an NFL wife, Chris Harrison dreamed of the scarf he would wear when invited to a Super Bowl game, and I saw the potential emergence of a media dynasty worthy of at least an E! Network series about JoJo marrying into an all-American football family and the hijinks they get into when she organizes a flag football tournament for the town. (The girls beat the boys in that episode!)
Sadly, the nail has been put in the coffin for all of those dreams. For weeks we’ve been hearing from Jordan on national television about how Aaron is completely detached from their family, and now he’s finally spoken out to confirm that he doesn’t give a fuck about the show and thinks Jordan is a huge scumbag. In a recent interview with WISN 12 News, Aaron said:
“I haven’t seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn’t really affected me a whole lot. As far as [the nature of the relationship] 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.”
Now, THAT is an impressive roast. Not only does he make Jordan look like an asshole for airing their family’s dirty laundry in front of millions of people, but he also throws in the phrase “I wish him well in the competition” which is the mature way of saying “You’re tacky and I hate you.” This is sad news for JoJo, who will definitely never get to hang out with Olivia Munn, but I don’t even feel bad for her because I’m still not over what she did to Luke during hometowns. As far as Aaron goes, I would say congrats for executing a perfectly condescending response to his annoying little brother, but I don’t really think he needs that since he’s like, a successful professional athlete and probably hasn’t given any of this a second thought.
