Filling the void left by deposed villain and apparent milk spokesman Chad Johnson? After The Bachelorette‘s JoJo Fletcher pulls Jordan Rodgers aside for a somber heart-to-heart in a preview clip from the Monday, June 27, episode, the previous front-runner discovers that he is the new target of the other guys’ ire.
The sneak peek shows the Bachelorette, 25, informing the former NFL quarterback, 27, that fellow contestant James Taylor had some unflattering things to say about him after the two guys butted heads over a card game.
“It was brought to my attention that there was an altercation that apparently was very unbecoming on your part,” the real estate developer tells Aaron Rodgers‘ younger brother. “James is an amazing person — I would never think that he’s lying whatsoever. So I don’t know what happened.”
“I hate hearing that,” Fletcher continues. “I hate hearing that because I have this idea of you in my head that I feel is accurate, and then to hear it was Jordan acting entitled and very snobby: I don’t like that!”
Rodgers, for his part, is not pleased that Taylor has thrown him under the bus.
“I do not think I’m better than anybody in this house, and I don’t enjoy my integrity being questioned at all,” the aspiring sports analyst tells the camera. “Character is huge for me — that’s how my parents brought me up. So any time that’s questioned, especially by someone I was friends with, is pathetic.”
Lately, Rodgers has found himself clashing with a few of the guys. He sparred with Johnson before the hotheaded luxury real estate agent made his exit in the June 20 episode, and later in that same episode, Derek Peth called out Rodgers and a few other guys for acting “cliquey.”
Fletcher has previously had tense conversations with Rodgers about his last relationship and whether he is ready to find love.
Watch the uncomfortable exchange in the video above.
The Bachelorette airs on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.
