Sharing details about his past mistakes? The Bachelorette season 12's Jordan Rodgers, an instant front-runner for JoJo Fletcher's affections, opens up about his previous relationship in a preview clip from the Monday, June 6, episode.

The ABC dating series' sneak peek shows the former pro football player, 27 — who earned Fletcher's first-impression rose in the May 23 premiere — enjoying a romantic one-on-one moment with the real estate developer, 25.

"I had a serious girlfriend a few years ago, so I think I made a lot of mistakes as far as putting things ahead of that relationship, and insecurities, and who I was, and where my career was at, and where I thought I should be, and the person I thought I should be," Rodgers explains.

After Fletcher says she understands the reason to not make oneself vulnerable right away, he replies about his growing connection with her: "It's scary, but it's also the best thing that I wake up to every morning."

Rodgers has been a bit of a polarizing figure so far this season. Although he has impressed the Bachelor season 20 runner-up and gotten along well with the guys in the house, a woman named Brittany Farrar posted a message to Instagram after the premiere aired and implied that the aspiring broadcaster had been unfaithful to her.

“Riding the bench doesn’t get in the way of a relationship, but cheating does,” Farrar captioned her post, tagging Rodgers and adding the hashtags "#alwayswantedtobefamous #dreamscometrue #tuneinnextweekformoreBS.” Farrar is a personal trainer from Nashville and is pals with Olivia Munn, who is currently dating Rodgers’ older brother, Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers.

The Bachelorette airs on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.
