The SEC Network has reportedly hired Aaron Rodgers’ brother Jordan as an analyst, and the reality TV world is aghast.

You see, Rodgers is a contestant on The Bachelorette, and all season long he’s been chased by rumors that he’s participating in the show out of careerism, not true love (or whatever).

Though Rodgers is the favorite to land the final rose from Bachelorette star JoJo Fletcher, US Weekly reported last month that Rodgers’ intentions were impure.

After Us broke the news in March that former NFL quarterback Rodgers, 27, would court her on the ABC series, Fletcher, 25, received “multiple warnings” from pals about her suitor’s shady intentions, a source says.

“Jordan was seeing another girl,” reveals a second insider. “He only went on the show to land sports commentator gigs.”

Rodgers, who played at Vanderbilt and briefly in the NFL, seems to have succeeded at using reality TV to raise his profile, to the consternation of some of his rivals.

But it gets even thicker. Even Aaron Rodgers doesn’t like Jordan Rodgers, according to! Now get ready for the most gossipy pull-quote in Awful Announcing history:

Behind the scenes, sources say that Aaron and Jordan Rodgers aren’t close – not even on speaking terms, depending on who you ask.

Even more interesting is the fact that the family feud involves, on some level, Aaron Rodgers’ famous actress girlfriend Olivia Munn.

It’s not clear what exactly started the Rodgers’ beef, or how bad it is, but Jordan’s ex-girlfriend Brittany Farrar is tight with Olivia and Aaron.

Farrar blasted Jordan online for being a cheater after The Bachelorette premiere, and Olivia liked her Instagram photo. Pretty amazing.

Isn’t reality TV fun?

Now, we should mention that neither Rodgers nor the SEC Network (which is owned and operated by ESPN) has confirmed the hire. But if the gig pans out, Rodgers could walk away from his Bachelorette experience with a fiance and a job.
