As an avid fan of the show, before heading to my viewing party this evening, I wanted to check your episode by episode break down.
Imagine my shock when before I even get to the Episode 1 break down, you say it was obvious who she picks from the beginning, and talk about the opening scenes… Including JORDAN RODGERS!!!
I am currently on Raya, an “exclusive” dating app that requires submission and approval and had a waiting list of thousands where most of the eligible bachelors include actors, musicians, and athletes. This is where Jordan comes in. We matched before what I’m not assuming is his time on the show. He told me he lived in Nashville, and we met up at the SuperBowl in SF. We continued talking until a few months ago, when I found out he matched with another friend of mine and slept with her after a couple ‘dates’ (more of a couple nights out at the bar). I never text him back after that.
Now that I’m hearing he had a girlfriend before he left. I wish I would have screenshot our convos, but on Raya, if you screenshot a profile or a message, you get one warning before you’re kicked off of the app and banned for life. I wish there was screening to protect people from scumbags like Jordan Rodgers. I’m sure if you put out a requests for screenshots of people’s convos with him on Raya, they will exist. He had since deleted his profile and his disappeared from my messages, but I know someone had some on their phone somewhere. And the dates will show since his return. Dating around is one thing, making a mockery of your now very public fiancé is another.
What a DOUCHE.
I emailed this person back that night and they got back to me three days later explaining more of her, and her friend’s, “relationship” with Jordan…

My timeline of events with Jordan is limited because it was such a short window of time when he didn’t come off as a creep. He sent my friends and I similar messages on Raya with almost identical pick up lines, would message us all to hang out simultaneously, and liked to pretend he had big things coming down the pipeline during almost every conversation. He has NO IDEA we were all friends and comparing messages almost daily in our group chat. Our only friend that really fell for his charm is the one that initially slept with in SF during Super Bowl weekend. He was in rare form at the Maxim super bowl party. If he had a girlfriend he was with during those days like you reported, that girl must have been blind, because Jordan doesn’t understand the concept of being low key or flying under the radar.
My friend slept with him again before he left for a “business trip” (MIND BLOWN) and would text her when he got back. She thought he was such a catch, we tried to tell her he was hitting us all up too but she was all swoon. I remember her being bummed telling some of us at a friends birthday dinner in April that he was “blowing her off” which we now know is when production had his phone…. Because the second he got it back he sent us all similar creepy messages on Raya again, and then his profile disappeared from my inbox a couple days later. This was just within 2 weeks! He only texted her to hook up, and no matter what we said, she thought otherwise…. Until Monday.
I was checking the episode by episode spoilers page before a stroll through Trader Joes to get all of the essentials for a girls Bachelorette premiere night and almost fell off my chair when I read your post. But we didn’t even find out the “business trip” was The Bachelorette until the day I emailed you!
There is a 0% chance that she will come forward, and I don’t blame her. She’s horrified. She’s embarrassed among her own friends at this point, let alone in front of the world. People would tear her apart. They would tear him apart too but her name would be linked to that forever, online and elsewhere. I really do feel horrible for her. At this point, we are hoping that girl Brittany who made the Instagram post about him comes forward, because she clearly wants to tell her story.
Jordan wants to be a sports reporter so bad that he would do anything to chase the fame. He wanted to take the Jesse Palmer approach but unfortunately for Jordan, the closest he has ever been to a career in sports reporting was being with **** *****, his ex who is a reporter on Fox. I’m not sure how her name hasn’t been thrown into the ring yet…
But there you have it… Never mentioned the show, called it a business trip during pre and post production, and was still texting girls on a dating app after he got his phone back.
I sent out an email to all these people this past Thursday saying that I would be posting the emails on Tuesday without names, but if they wanted their name attached, or had anything else to add to get back to me this weekend. This was her response…

Nothing to add but it should be noted he’s back at it on the dating app Raya. He matched with a mutual friend last Friday. Major eye roll.
It WAS deactivated. But has since been reactivated. I’ve had several friends in the past week say they’ve seen him back in the rotation on Raya. It’s a small community so even if you have already seen someone (regardless of if you clicked yes or no) if they edit their profile they will pop up again. I don’t know if that means they broke up or he’s just a slime bag but there’s that.

Hello Reality Steve,
I met Jordan in March of last year and we immediately hit it off. He’s extremely charming and does a good job of making you feel like you’re the only girl in the world that he wants to be with. When we started talking, I had a boyfriend who I wasn’t happy with. Jordan convinced me to dump my boyfriend and I actually did. He wined and dined me all over Nashville. After a few months of being with him, I suspected something wasn’t right. He was always on his phone, traveling, acting short. Then I started seeing comments on his social media pop up, calling him “babe” and different things. He always insisted that he didn’t have any other girls. We would end our relationship and stop talking for a month or two. And then he would hit me up randomly. This has gone on for the last year. He even was texting me right up until the show began. His personality is narcissistic. He can be sweet one moment, then get incredibly defensive and nasty the next. He always talked about his ex, whom he dated for years, and talked about how he cheated. It was almost like he was proud of it. Whenever he talked about girls he dated, he always sounded sort of “braggy”..like he was trying to impress me with the fact that he clearly got around. There were so many red flags right from the start, but unfortunately, I ignored them all. The only reason why he’s doing this show is for the publicity. I honestly think he’s tired of living in his brother’s shadow. Hopefully one day, he will come to terms with all the girls he’s treated like dirt. Until then, he’s going to keep pretending to be someone he’s not on TV.
He sent this picture to me when we first started talking. But we both have iPhones and the reason I suspect he’s sent it to other girls is bc he sent it in March of 2015 and the geotag on it said December. So I’m assuming it’s just the picture he sends to them all lol.
This Jordan story is ever evolving. So his Raya account was active right after he got back, got de-activated, and is now back to being active. Hey Jordan, by no means am I some ladies’ man, but for the love of God, if you’re gonna sneak around, it’s probably not best to re-active your account on a dating app for everyone to see. Doesn’t necessarily give out the greatest impression to your now fiancé. Just sayin’. Might wanna de-activate that thing, like, forever and not message any members of the opposite sex on Raya. Because I guarantee it’s only a matter of time before those messages somehow end up in my inbox. Just lookin’ out for ya’ ol’ buddy, ol’ pal.
So there it is. Some of you will love those and some of you (Grant and Jordan defenders) will say they don’t matter. Predictable. We can agree to disagree on that one. Obviously we still have 6 more weeks left of story, drama, and tabloid coverage to play out. This is only the beginning of what I expect will be hell for the next month in JoJo and Jordan’s world’s. Been saying it for two months now, I hope she has thick skin. And reeeeeeeeallllly is sure she wants to stand by and defend this guy because it’s gonna be coming from everywhere. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. If she really wants to turn a blind eye to all this, that is absolutely her prerogative. I just think that’s an extremely dumb move. However, post show media coverage as a broken up couple isn’t nearly as lucrative than if they’re still together, hence the reason I think they’ll ride this wave out as long as they can. But c’mon, if you can’t see the writing on the wall now, you never will. May the odds forever be in your favor. Or something like that.
