Why Bachelorette's Chad Johnson Is Rooting for His Nemesis Jordan Rodgers – Even Though He Wants to Punch Him in the Face
The Bachelorette finale airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC
He may not have gotten along with The Bachelorette‘s finalist Jordan Rodgers during the season, but Chad Johnson says he thinks JoJo Fletcher should choose Rodgers as her final pick – though not for the reasons one might think.
“Jordan has the most marketability,” Johnson tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Is she looking for a career out of this? If so, she should pick Jordan. His brother is Aaron Rodgers. If you choose him, you’re going to get endorsement deals.”
Personally, Johnson says he’s still not a fan of the former pro football player.
“Everything out of that dude’s mouth was a plate of [crap] from day one,” he says. “The other guys won’t admit it because they were all giving out plates of [crap] too so that’s unfortunate.”

As for Fletcher’s second final suitor Robby Hayes: “He broke up with his girlfriend to go on the show,” says Johnson, who has been dating Hayes’ ex Hope Higginbotham. “I’m sure he’s probably a good person in his regular life, but I’m not the kind of guy to string a relationship along if I’m trying to get famous.”
At the taping, Johnson revealed to ET that if he had to punch anyone on the show, it would of course, be Rodgers.
“You want to go for the big guy first obviously,” he said. “Maybe Jordan. Yeah, Jordan would have been a good target.”
