Season 12 of ABC's dating reality show "The Bachelorette" has only just begun, and one of the contestants vying to win JoJo Fletcher's hear is already embroiled in a controversy.
Jordan Rodgers, Aaron Rodgers' brother who is also a frontrunner to win Season 12 of the show, has been accused of cheating on his ex girlfriend Brittany Farrar. Taking to Instagram, Farrar also accused Jordan for being on the show to be famous. She tagged Jordan in the post and took a dig at his cameo in "Pitch Perfect."
"Riding the bench doesn't get in the way of a relationship, but cheating does. #yourpitchisntperfect @jrodgers11 #alwayswantedtobefamous #dreamscometrue #tuneinnextweekformoreBS," she wrote.
Jordan, who according to rumours is already engaged to Fletcher, is yet to respond to these accusations. But Reality Steve had earlier revealed on his blog that Jordan is not the person he portrays to be. Apparently, he broke up with his girlfriend just the night before filming for "The Bachelorette" commenced.
Fletcher, in the meantime, has also been accused of being on the show just for fame. Her ex boyfriend Chad Rookstool revealed in an earlier interview that she hooked up with him shortly after Ben Higgins dumped her in the previous edition of "The Bachelor." Rookstool told InTouch Weekly that he started hanging out with Fletcher after "The Bachelor" had stopped filming and they were apparently sneaking around the whole time the show was airing.
But Fletcher recently revealed that Rookstool is in the past, and there's no truth to these claims. "The tabloid that came out about Chad is completely false," Fletcher told reporters, according to Us Weekly. "I had no idea that he had done that until kind of later on. So those were very untrue. And I've decided to completely put that in my past and not think about it again."
"The Bachelorette" airs Mondays on ABC. The next episode will feature two group dates and a one-on-one, at the end of which three more contestants are expected to bid adiue to Fletcher.
