Finally, mercifully, we appear headed toward a conclusion of the "Bachelorette" drama surrounding Aaron Rodgers. The Packers quarterback has been embroiled in a controversy surrounding comments from his brother Jordan Rodgers, one of the contestants vying for JoJo's heart.
A few weeks ago, Jordan unveiled the news about he and Rodgers not really getting along, bringing his brother into some nationally-televised drama (of the non-football kind). During home visits the drama only increased, thanks to Aaron's absence.
And now Aaron is finally weighing in, in the most Aaron Rodgers way, by letting everyone know he really doesn't care about it because he hasn't seen the show and found it "inappropriate" to air out family laundry in public.
He is rooting for Jordan to win though!
"I haven't seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn't really affected me a whole lot," Aaron Rodgers said Tuesday on the first day of training camp. "As far as those kind of things go, I've always found that it's a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters. I'm not going to speak on those things, but I wish him well in the competition."
Shout out to the reporter who felt the need to ask Rodgers about this after the Packers began training camp. In no way will Aaron etch that person's face in his memory forever and let it resurface whenever said reporter is trying to get some information from the quarterback.
It's 2016 so it's not entirely surprising Rodgers would eventually get the line of questioning, but the reality is the whole process is just kind of gross. Part of being famous involves certain aspects of your life being brought into the public, but it's a stinger when your own flesh and blood decides it's necessary to unearth it for the sake of increasing drama on a reality television series.
Suffice to say, this is probably the last time Rodgers will answer the question patiently. Though it may not be the last time the drama surfaces on television.
"It's hard because that's Jordan's brother, that's Luke brother, that's Ed and Darla's son," JoJo told the camera after visiting the family. "I have no idea, nor could I even imagine why Aaron wouldn't want to be a part of their lives."
Full disclosure: Luke works for 247Sports, which is owned by CBS Sports, and the oldest Rodgers brother has said he'd rather not offer any further details on the family dynamic.
