EXCLUSIVE: 'Bachelorette' Contestant Jordan Rodgers Has an Active Dating Profile on Raya
By Desiree Murphy
Jordan Rodgers is apparently still looking for love.
The 27-year-old former NFL player -- and current contestant on JoJo Fletcher's season of The Bachelorette -- has an active profile on the private, member-based dating network Raya, dubbed by many as "the secret dating app for celebrities" and the "Illuminati Tinder."
Last week, a source who uses the exclusive app spotted Rodgers (aka @jrodgers11) while seeking eligible bachelors. His profile states he lives in Nashville, Tennessee, and is originally from Chico, California.
A fan on Twitter also apparently came across his profile on June 19, writing, "Oh @JoelleFletcher check out #JordanRodgers on Raya dating app…. I pray he doesn't break your heart. What a douchebag."
This unfortunately isn't the first time Rodgers has found himself in trouble while vying for Fletcher's heart. The same night season 12 of the hit ABC reality series premiered, Brittany Farrar, a trainer claiming to be his ex-girlfriend, took to Instagram to throw some serious shade. Farrar claimed he was a cheater and didn't sign on onto the show for the right reasons.
"Riding the bench doesn't get in the way of a relationship, but cheating does," she wrote, using the hashtags "#yourpitchisntperfect" "#alwayswantedtobefamous" "#dreamscometrue" and "#tuneinnextweekformoreBS."
ET caught up with Fletcher ahead of the premiere episode last month, where she revealed she already knew Rodgers was one of her suitors before he made his limo entrance. She was also aware that he was the younger brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
"A week before this whole thing started I think his name got leaked, and it was kind of all over the Internet, so, you know, it's like 'Jordan Rodgers, brother of Aaron' -- so that's what I knew going into it," the brunette beauty told ET's Nancy O'Dell. "Before I met him ... I knew just that tidbit about him, but nothing else, and I don't think it made a difference either way."
