Rodgers, the brother of NFL star Aaron Rodgers, will appear on "The Bachelorette."
For a while, it looked like Jordan Rodgers
might follow in his brother's footsteps and become an NFL quarterback. Now he might have a new career - reality TV star.
The younger brother of two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers, Jordan is a former Pleasant Valley (Chico, Calif.)
and Vanderbilt quarterback who is listed as one of 26 contestants on the coming season of "The Bachelorette" on ABC, which premieres tonight. He will be vying for the attention of JoJo Fletcher, who is a former contestant on "The Bachelor."See high school photos of Jordan Rodgers
