Former Vanderbilt quarterback Jordan Rodgers, the brother of Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers, is a contestant on the latest season of "The Bachelorette," which began Monday night. And he's off to a good start, claiming the first big kiss and the First Impression Rose from JoJo Fletcher.

Jordan, 27, led Vanderbilt to back-to-back bowl games in 2011 and 2012. He signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2013, and also spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins, although he never saw action in an NFL regular-season game.
Packers offensive tackle David Bakhtiari is among those cheering Jordan on.

In somewhat related news, the Charlotte Hornets' Frank Kaminsky is apparently interested in appearing on reality TV as well, or meeting some prospective contestants.

But first, let's see how Jordan fares over the next few weeks.
