NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers' brother Jordan is supposedly a frontrunner to win "The Bachelorette" 2016 star JoJo Fletcher's affection.
Filming for Season 12 started March 16 and according to reports, Jordan, who is a former Canadian Football League athlete, has become one of Fletcher's favourites.
"He and JoJo are really hitting it off. He's a front-runner already," a source told Us Weekly about Jordan, who briefly played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins and BC Lions before retiring May 26, 2015.
However, Fletcher, who was the first runner-up on Ben Higgins' season of "The Bachelor," is not putting all her eggs in one basket. During a March 19 one-on-one date, Fletcher was seen with another suitor and they were supposedly holding hands and laughing a lot. "They were very affectionate," an onlooker told Us Weekly.
"The Bachelor" creator Mike Fleiss has been tweeting about JoJo's season since filming started and revealed that some of the contestants are a bit too obsessed with the new bachelorette.
"Wild group of dude's. Some great ones for sureâ€¦ Some seem to be a little too into JoJo. #clinger," one of Fleiss' tweet read.
"JoJo still has 20 great guys from which to choose. I think she's gonna find loveâ€¦ #Bachelorette," he said in another message. "JoJo is taking this very seriously. She really did love @benhiggi and wants what Lauren has."
March 19, the third day of filming, Fleiss revealed Fletcher had kissed a total of three men and she described one as "interesting and sexy-- king of mysterious." Three days later, the count was 4.5, and the producer revealed that two of the guys nearly came to blows.
Season 12 of "The Bachelorette" premieres May 23.
