Aaron Rodgers' younger bro, Jordan, made his debut as a suitor on "The Bachelorette" Monday night -- and while he was a HUUUUGE hit with rose-giver JoJo Fletcher ... the dudes were SUPER JELLY PANTS!!!
Besides winning the first impression rose -- which puts him through to next week -- JoJo was clearly into the 27-year-old ... and even made out with the guy in the middle of the show.
Jordan's fellow competitors clearly feel threatened -- and reacted by spewin' hate.
"You're a 27-year-old failed football player. You've done nothing with your life other than throw a piece of leather," one of the ridiculously jelly contestants blabbed.
By the way, in the season preview at the end of the show, JoJo wraps her legs around Jordan while wearing a bikini.
The next 'Bachelorette' has yet to be announced, but there's a strong sign Ben Higgins reject Caila Quinn is getting the nod.
Quinn, who was eliminated from "The Bachelor" on Monday's episode, was spotted shooting something Wednesday around her hometown of Hudson, Ohio. Cameras followed her to local spots including her alma mater, Western Reserve Academy.
She was also seen sitting alone inside a gazebo looking pensively into the distance -- which has all the makings of a classic 'Bachelorette' intro scene.
We're told onlookers were asked to sign release forms to appear on television, and although the crew didn't specify what show they were shooting for ... there are reports Caila is the chosen one.
'Bachelorette' contestant Josh Seiter says he's being blocked from talking to the media about something as innocent as a charity event, because he accused the show of being staged.
Josh -- who got booted from Kaitlyn Bristowe's season -- says he was supposed to be on "Windy City Live" this week, but ABC contacted the show and Josh's manager to say the appearance would breach his 'Bachelorette' contract.
Josh says he's been allowed to do promotional gigs in the past, and thinks this is especially strange since he was merely going to talk up a breast cancer charity event.
He tells us he suspects the ban has something to do with previous interviews he did after getting booted -- including one on "TMZ Live" -- where he alleged most of the 'Bachelor' and 'Bachelorette' shows are fake.
Josh says he's been told he can still do the charity event, as long as he doesn't talk to the media. We reached out to ABC and Warner Bros. (which produces 'Bachelorette') ... but no comment from either.
Former 'Bachelorette'contestantEd Swiderski says he got screwed out of his apartment security deposit because his landlord is blaming him for $12,000 worth of damage!
Ed and his wife Natalie moved out of the pad in Chicago's West Loop this past July, and he says they left it exactly the same way they found it -- minus reasonable wear and tear -- but never got back the $3,700 security deposit.
According to the lawsuit, Ed's landlord, Robert O'Bryan, tagged him for the following:
-$100 for missing chandelier crystals
-$60 for missing parking remotes
-$1,500 for fixing 5 doors with dog scratches on them
-$1,150 for a new carpet after he found dog feces and urine stains on the old one
-$4,950 in repainting costs ... all things the landlord says aren't "regular wear and tear."
Those are just the highlights, there's much more, but Ed says it's all BS since he cleaned the place, and a new tenant moved in the very same day he moved out.
O'Bryan tells TMZ the damage he found during inspection was "shocking," and thinks Ed is being ungrateful. He says he was willing to just take his deposit, and eat the rest of the damage ... which would have been more than $9k.
Ed and his wife are suing for $11,100 -- 3 times their deposit.
Hilary Swank, a two-time Oscar winner who's dated Hollywood stars, has gone reality, because she's getting cozy with a former contestant from "The Bachelorette."
Swank spent her 41st birthday Thursday night at Gjelina -- a popular restaurant in Venice, CA -- with Kasey Stewart, who was eliminated in week 9 during Desiree Hartsock's season of "The Bachelorette."
Stewart posted, "Happy Birthday to this beautiful soul. @hilaryswank."
This boy's not cryin'.
Turns out ... Swank and Stewart go back to at least 2013 ... when the pair posed for a photo together in nearly matching v-neck t-shirts.
'Bachelorette' runner-up Nick Viall ruined the big finale -- making it clear he wasn't picked -- because he was openly and notoriously cavorting with a hot girl who was NOT the bachelorette.
Viall was hanging poolside Sunday afternoon at the Mondrian Hotel in West Hollywood, clearly not caring that everyone around him could easily guess he was not bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe's choice. It's all the more interesting because most people assumed he was gonna win during Monday's show.
We're told Nick is saying the chick in the pool is just a friend from home.
He clearly has a type ... she looks just like Kaitlyn, but we're not calling her a consolation prize.
