Hey everyone. My name is Hannah and I am the intern here at the Social Television Network. I don’t know about you, but I am addicted to watching the Bachelorette. I started watching the Bachelor/Bachelorette a long time ago after my dad got me into it. Yes, that’s right, my dad. He got me hooked. I just love all the drama, the backstabbing and the tears. Although I am not a huge fan of reality TV, there is just something about the show that gets me every season!
That being said, I didn’t think that anyone in the office would waste their time watching this crazy reality TV show, so I never talk about it. But when I got into work today, two of my co-workers were talking about Jordan Rodgers. They were talking about what they thought could have created such a rift between Jordan and Aaron Rodgers.
Incase you’re not familiar with the show, Aaron Rodgers’ brother Jordan is one of the men dating the Bachelorette, JoJo Fletcher. Last week, Jordan took JoJo home to meet his family. This is something that the final four men do. JoJo met Jordan’s older brother Luke, Luke’s girlfriend, and his parents. But one person was missing – Aaron Rodgers. It seemed like there was a lot of animosity between Aaron and the rest of his family. We knew that Jordan and Aaron don’t get along. But, last week further solidified that there is a massive strain on the Rodgers’ family due to the relationship (or lack there of) with Aaron.
It's extremely apparent that there is defiantly some family drama. But the question that has been looming in all of our minds is WHY? That’s what Chris and Eric, my co-workers, were trying to figure out. But they are not alone. So many Bachelorette fans are racking their brains for answers. They all want to know, what happened between Aaron and Jordan? Why don’t they like each other? Well here are some of the conspiracies that have been going around my office.
One of the conspiracies floating around the office has to do with Aaron Rodgers' girlfriend, Olivia Munn. Is it possible that she dated the younger, less successful, Rodgers brother first? Some speculate that she and Jordan dated for a while. But at some point, the actress dumped Jordan for his successful brother Aaron. Could that be the reason that there is all this tension in the Rodger’s family?
Another conspiracy could simply be that Rodgers just doesn’t like Olivia Munn. First of all, Munn is a few years older than Aaron, which may or may not have anything to do with this. But, when the couple first started dating, Rodgers wasn’t playing so well. He received a lot of backlash from Packers fans, but he always defended his relationship. It could be possible that the Rodgers’ family had reservations about the relationship, and when Aaron refused to listen to them he ostracized himself from the rest of the family.
A third theory that I have heard discussed about in the office is the fact that fame got to Aaron’s head. As his career kicked off and things started going well for him, it is possible that he started to neglect his family and focus on his new life style, and his new girlfriend. This is extremely plausible and could totally be the reason (or at least part of the reason) Aaron is estranged.
The last theory I heard going around the office is that Aaron could be embarrassed by Jordan. Aaron could be ashamed that his brother isn’t as successful, or that he rides off of his reputation. Aaron could have started being hostile towards Jordan, causing the family to come to Jordan’s defense. Aaron’s actions could have therefore cause a huge rift in the family. This could explain why Aaron is not apart of most family events.
Obviously, this is all speculation. If I had to guess, I would think the relationship strain has something to do with the family disliking Olivia Munn, as well as fame going to Aaron’s head. But that’s just my personal opinion. All I know is I REALLY want to know what the deal is with Aaron and the rest of his family. I need to know, and I think all Bachelorette fans agree! Hopefully, this week’s double feature will help answer this burning question!
Do you have a conspiracy theory about the Rodgers’ family strain? If you do, I would love to hear it. Leave a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what you think!
