The Bachelorette, JoJo Fletcher, has made her final decision; she’s going to get married to Jordan Rogers, the contestant she says she fell in love with more than any of the other men on the show when she was looking for love. Despite the fact that these two people were on television weekly for months, we don’t know much about Jordan Rogers other than the fact that he has a famous football playing brother he does not associate with in any way these days. We don’t know what happened between them, though we’d undeniably love to find that out, and we don’t really know that much about the future Mr. JoJo. What we do know is that we’re all about to get to know a lot more of him now that he’s the winner, now that they’ve gone public, and now that they are engaged to be married. So, here we go.
He’s not afraid of sharks
When he was in Hilton Head for vacation back in May, he ended up going fishing and holding onto a shark without any help or anything. It was small, and he caught it himself. I’ve seen bigger fish in the sea, but apparently JoJo didn’t see any better ones. Oh, I know; but I had to, and we all know it.
He’s got another brother, too
Aaron Rogers is not the only boy in the family. Jordan has another brother who is also older than him. Since he’s not a famous football star and the two don’t seem to have any serious issues with this part of his family, though, the world will probably never learn much more about him. Get in a fight or become famous, though, and that will change.
He’s sure they will work
He says that the most difficult thing about being on this competition and being with JoJo is knowing that he couldn’t be there for her when the media was saying horrible things about her. She was upset many nights and called him crying, but he was unable to do anything about it because he was not allowed to see her, he was not allowed to come to her and they were forced to spend time apart. When they were together, however, they did have a good time and they were able to offer one another the support that they needed. He is certain that their relationship will work out quite well, and he’s not going to give up on her.
He was a frontrunner
Sometimes you just have to go with your gut, and that’s what JoJo Fletcher apparently did when she gave Jordan Rogers the first impression rose on the first night of their meeting. She was very much interested in him from the start, and it was obvious to us even then that he’d probably be the winner. She focused mostly on him and made him a priority in her life, so we weren’t all that surprised when she chose him.
His dad played football, too
It appears that his family is one that gets their athletic genes honestly. His father was also a football player. He spent three years playing for the Chico State Wildcats. He might not have been as good as his sons, but he went onto become a very successful chiropractor, so we are not thinking that he is doing too badly for himself since not making it any further in his football career.
He’s an SEC boy
We knew we liked him. Now, he didn’t go to the University of Florida, which would be preferable, but he did go to Vandy. That makes him an SEC guy, and we love the SEC down here. He was a pretty good student, too, and we love that he was not only an athlete but also someone who spent time focusing on his studies. The school accepts only 9% of the people who apply, so that’s a big deal.
He’s a former pro football player
Did you know that Jordan Rogers is a lot more like his big brother than most people realize? He’s got a football playing gene in his body, too, and he actually played for several teams. He’s nowhere near as good as his brother, but he was good enough to play for the Miami Dolphins, the Tampa Bay Bucs and the Jacksonville Jags. He likes his Florida teams; and as a lifelong Floridian, I appreciate that.
He’s a sportscaster
Well, he will be at some point. He ended up getting the job after he made his appearance on the hit television show that makes us all watch as a bunch of guys fight for the attention of just one woman. It’s kind of gross, but it really does make or break the careers of many people who make it their choice to go ahead and appear on the show.
We already said that Jordan Rogers got into a good school with a good reputation, but did you know that he also graduated with honors? That is not an easy thing to do when you are a football player and you are busy in life like that. However, he did it, and his family is pretty darn proud of him. It’s a nice accomplishment, and we’d be proud, too.
He says family is complicated
It turns out that Jordan Rogers thinks that family is complicated, and that’s pretty much all he has to say about his estrangement from his brother. His family is not happy with it, and it seems that it might be a bit of a red flag to a woman to find out that her future husband cannot make amends with his brother over family stuff, but he defines it as complicated and won’t go there with it with the press. We do have to respect that, and it probably says a lot more about him than people are willing to admit that he will not just go out and make a scene talking about his brother.
