JoJo Fletcher’s Bachelorette season has been particularly dramatic, and there has been more than one occasion where we’ve questioned whether all the guys are in it for the right reasons — and Jordan Rodgers may not be.
This according to a new report from Us Weekly, in which a friend of Rodgers claims he initially signed on for The Bachelorette in the hopes of becoming the next Bachelor because being famous was a pretty big goal of his.
A source close to Rodgers reportedly told the publication that he knew his career as a quarterback wouldn’t last forever, but “he wants to be famous desperately.”
His appearance on the show apparently wasn’t all luck either, it was carefully organized by Rodgers, and helped along by an unnamed acquaintance who reportedly works on the hit ABC series.
“He plotted this,” the Rodgers source said, noting that producers “thought he was there for the right reasons.”
But does he still feel this way now that he’s one of the frontrunners for Fletcher’s heart?
Apparently not. According to the source, Rodgers was initially not pleased when he thought that The Bachelorette was going to be Caila Quinn, however, when it was officially announced that Fletcher was the new leading lady, his feelings changed and he got excited about the prospect of dating her.
So, according to the friend it was all career-driven in the beginning, but now Rodgers is “really into JoJo. He definitely fell in love with her.”
Ugh, we’re so tired of all the rumors surrounding this season, especially those surrounding Rodgers (who can forget all those cheating and dating claims he’s been confronted with this season).
What are you thoughts: Do you believe that Rodgers joined the show to further his career? Or are you rolling your eyes at all the new reports about Season 12 of The Bachelorette.
