Playing EXCLUSIVE: 'Bachelorette' JoJo Fletcher: It's 'Sweet' How Jordan Rodgers Handled His Issues With Brother Aaron

Bachelorette star JoJo Fletcher is happy with the way contestant Jordan Rodgers has dealt with his family drama surrounding his estranged brother, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

ET caught up with JoJo at the "Men Tell All" taping on Saturday in Los Angeles, where she gave her own thoughts on why Aaron might be estranged from the Rodgers family. 

"I can't say. That is not something that I was there for, and it wasn't something that I felt that I should pry into," JoJo exclusively tells ET's Lauren Zima about the estrangement. "I will say that the stuff that Jordan told me on that date was ... it was actually quite sweet how he handled it."

On Monday's episode of The Bachelorette, JoJo visited Jordan's hometown in Chico, California, and met the entire Rodgers clan -- sans Aaron, of course -- which is where JoJo got to see the sweet side of Jordan.

"It would have been nice to share JoJo with not only my parents and my brother Luke, but my brother Aaron as well," Jordan told the cameras. "I miss my brother a lot -- especially in moments like this because my family means so much. JoJo is everything to me right now and they know that and they can see that."

"He comes from such an amazing family with so much love and so much character," JoJo added after instantly hitting it off with Jordan's family at dinner. "But sitting down at that table there's two empty seats, and I know that they all probably wish that Aaron was sitting in one of them."

JoJo also comments on all the controversy surrounding 27-year-old Jordan, which so far, has included the frontrunner getting put on blast for allegedly cheating on trainer Brittany Farrar -- who claims to be his ex-girlfriend, and is also good friends with Aaron's girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn -- and being on the show just to be famous. ET also reported last month that Jordan still had an active dating profile on Raya -- a private, member-based dating network often dubbed as "the secret dating app for celebrities" -- though he has since denied it.

Clearly, JoJo is not paying attention to the negativity.

"I am so blown away with how many stories are just out there, and everything that I have seen," JoJo says. "It's just bizarre and garbage."

"I don't listen to that stuff," she adds specifically about the reports that Jordan is still on dating apps.

The 25-year-old real estate developer also stresses that despite reports on a few of the frontrunners' seemingly shady pasts, she was able to completely trust them.

"I feel that there has been stuff about me, all my top guys," she notes. "There is stuff about Robby [Hayes], there is something about Jordan, there is something about all of them. I just … I got to know these guys, and I felt like I was able to trust them, and that's what I did."

The Bachelorette airs on Monday and also next Tuesday at 8 p.m. on ABC, with next week's episodes revolving around the overnight Fantasy Suite dates.
