Aaron Rodgers' little brother Jordan has been a huge focus of this season of "The Bachelorette" since day one. Monday night, viewers got an even better picture of the relationship between the MVP Green Bay Packers quarterback and his sibling.

In a conversation with bachelorette JoJo Fletcher, Jordan Rodgers revealed he and his famous brother do not have a close relationship. Next week brings visits to candidates' hometowns, and while the rest of the Rodgers clan seems ready to meet a potential match, Jordan admitted JoJo may notice a conspicuous absence.

"My middle brother [Aaron] won't be there," Jordan said. 

Why won't #12 be showing up?

"Me and Aaron don't really have that much of a relationship. It's just kind of the way he's chosen to do life, and I chose to stay close to my family and my parents and my brother," he added.

If that sounds cold, the former Vanderbilt quarterback made sure to note he understands why Aaron may live a different lifestyle:

"It's not ideal, and I love him, and I can't imagine what it's like to be in his shoes and have the pressure he has, and the demands from people that he has...It's just how things go right now."

At least some of the distance seems to be attributable to the high expectations Aaron left for his little brother.

"No matter what I did, it was never good enough for a coach, or for a teammate, because I was being compared to someone who did it the best," he told JoJo. You can watch the full clip on here.
