Why are the best ones always so bad? The Bachelorette's Jordan Rodgers has baggage back home

Come on, Jordan Rodgers.

During Monday night's premiere of the new season of The Bachelorette, Rodgers, who is pro football star Aaron Rodgers' younger brother, emerged as the obvious front-runner in the group of guys vying for JoJo Fletcher's affections.

During his one-on-one time with Fletcher, the chemistry was painfully obvious — neither could keep their hands to themselves, and just try to tell us that kiss between them didn't send shivers down your back. Rodgers was totally adorable about it, too — at first, he chickened out and skipped the kiss, but after a lot of angsty pacing, he went back to grab Fletcher and get that amazing first kiss. Unsurprisingly, the move netted him the first impression rose for the night.

But after the episode aired, so did what could be some of Rodgers' dirty laundry.

During the episode, he explained that he was in a relationship while he was trying to make it as a pro football player, but he put football before his girlfriend.

"I was in love, but I was so focused on football that I didn't make time for anything else," he admitted.

But now, a trainer named Brittany Farrar who claims to be Rodgers' ex is saying that wasn't quite true.

"Riding the bench doesn't get in the way of a relationship, but cheating does," Farrar wrote on Instagram under a photo of Chris Pratt shaking his head in disbelief with the hashtags, "#yourpitchisntperfect," "#alwayswantedtobefamous," "#dreamscometrue" and "#tuneinnextweekformoreBS."

It's not confirmed yet whether Farrar is actually the ex-girlfriend Rodgers was referring to, but her Instagram does reveal that she's buds with actress Olivia Munn, who has been dating Aaron Rodgers for years, so it seems likely.

The preview for the upcoming The Bachelorette season also seemed to paint Rodgers as an unpopular member of the house, with other men saying he isn't on the show for love.
