Playing JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers Talk 'Rift' With His Brother Aaron: 'It's Not the Focus for Us Right Now'

JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers made their first appearance since getting engaged during the Bachelorette finale on After the Final Rose, where they opened up about the family drama that's surrounded Jordan through the season.

Toward the end of the special, after the couple spoke about how they're ready for marriage, host Chris Harrison brought up the "rift" between Jordan and his brother, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

"Has anything come of that?" Harrison asked. "Has anything changed?"

"Anything with my family, JoJo has been a part of," Jordan shared, seemingly deflecting the question. "Any conversations we have about that, moving forward, are with us and about us, and we're excited about starting that journey with our families."

Jordan added that the couple is moving into a new home in Dallas, Texas, which is "closer to her family."

However, JoJo said that she still has not been introduced to Aaron, as of yet.

"No, I mean it's the same situation that it's been, but it's not the focus for us right now," she explained. "It's about us."

"We got furniture to buy! We got lots on the list," Jordan chimed in, laughing.

While the Rodgers family feud played out over the course of the season, it wasn't the only thing that had people talking about the show -- there was also Chad Johnson. And what would a Bachelorette special be if the show's outspoken villain didn't insert himself into the proceedings.

Before Jordan ever took the stage, Chad made his presence known when he stood up in the crowd to share what seemed like a heartfelt plea for forgiveness and understanding.

"There's probably a lot of people out there that probably think I'm a bad guy, just because of the way I was, on the show," Chad began, showing a surprising amount of self-awareness. "But I've been through a lot this last year. I lost my mom, and one of the things they didn't show on the show is that I'm also a Marine, so I've had a long life."

"I want to say that I think that a lot of people deserve love. I think that I, as well as other people, deserve love," he continued, before revealing his hidden agenda. "So I think maybe I deserve to be the next Bachelor!"

Harrison asked the audience what they thought about the idea, and Chad's proposal was met with a tepid mix of cheers and boos.

"I feel it's mixed emotions at best," Harrison said.
