While you were watching Raptors-Cavs or Blues-Sharks on Monday night, the real action was taking place on ABC. The Bachelorette opened its 12th season. (There have been 20 seasons of The Bachelor for those curious.) The highest profile name in the group: Former NFL quarterback Jordan Rodgers, who is, yes, the younger brother of two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers.
Jordan ran the hurry-up in the season premiere. He hit it off with Joelle "JoJo" Fletcher, and earned the first kiss and first-impression rose. In other words, he was the first of the contestants to advance to Week 2. (Side note: The 49ers could have selected Aaron Rodgers first overall in the 2005 NFL Draft. After all, Aaron was from Northern California -- Chico -- and went to Cal. He thought he was going to San Francisco. Instead, the 49ers picked Alex Smith, and Rodgers dropped to the Packers at No. 24. What a mistake).
But not all was glorious for Jordan. Claiming to be his ex-girlfriend, Nashville-based trainer Brittany Farrar attacked him on Instagram:
Yeah, that's right. Oh snap!
So, is this story real? Did he cheat? Should we #TuneInNextWeekForMoreBS? (The Thunder and Warriors are slotted to play Game 7 next Monday, so that may take priority.)
The good folks at The Big Lead found a screengrab via okhereisthesituation.com.
Jordan Rodgers played two seasons at Butte College, a community college in near Chico. He then transferred to Vanderbilt, where he redshirted, then played two seasons. He was a practice squad player with the Jaguars, Bucs and Dolphins from 2013 to 2014, and he was a practice squad player for the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League in 2015.
Meanwhile, thanks to LinkedIn, it appears Farrar attended Chico State from 2008-2012. She then started working for BBR Music Group in Nashville in 2012. Her LinkedIn looks like it has not been updated in a while, but she now works for SHED Fitness Belle Meade in Nashville, per social media.
Without assuming too much, her move to Nashville four years ago does not seem coincidental.
This story gets weirder. Farrar and Munn have a plethora of social media photos together, with Munn even posting last week. Again, as a reminder, Munn is dating the brother of the man Farrar just annihilated on Instagram.
Here's some more from Munn:
Farrar isn't shy about posting pictures with her famous friend.
And Farrar made an appearance at Lambeau Field.
The details are not solid. Did Munn introduce Farrar to Jordan Rodgers? Did he introduce Farrar to Munn, and the two became good friends? Could Farrar be an old family friend in Chico?
One thing we do know: Farrar thinks Jordan Rodgers is a cheater and hates his guts and will tear him to shreds on Instagram, and this is going to be fun to watch for the next few weeks.
Oh, one more thing. If you are wondering why Farrar used the hashtag, #yourpitchisntperfect, Rodgers made an appearance in Pitch Perfect 2, with some of Aaron's Packers teammates.
