JoJo Fletcher has found love!

And it was clear from the moment Jordan Rodgers exited the limo on the season 12 premiere that 25-year-old Dallas native Fletcher wouldn’t be able to resist Rodgers’ charms.

On that night, Fletcher couldn’t keep her hands off her eventual groom-to-be, making him an instant front-runner by giving him the coveted First Impression Rose.

Here are five things to know about Fletcher’s new fiancé.

1. His relationship to brother Aaron Rodgers dominated the season.

Jordan’s big brother Aaron, 32, became the Green Bay Packers starting quarterback in 2008 and has been voted the NFL MVP not once, but twice! Aaron has also been in a relationship with X-Men: Apocalypse star Olivia Munn, 35, since 2014.

And Aaron’s not the only impressive athlete in the Rodgers clan …

2. Jordan also played in the NFL!
Jordan signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Miami Dolphins. He’s retired now and has landed a sports broadcasting gig since appearing on The Bachelorette.

3. He’s a sport and a scholar.
Jordan claims Vanderbilt University in Tennessee as his alma mater. The school boasts just a 9 percent acceptance rate and is ranked No. 15 in the country. Now here’s a boy you could take home to mom and dad – just ask JoJo’s parents!

4. He loves animals (well, sort of).
Back in May, Jordan had a brush with the wild. In the popular beach vacation spot Hilton Head, South Carolina, he posed holding a shark in his bare hands!

“At least one of us was ready for the picture…still not sure who though #besties (and yes, I threw him back and told him to spread the word so his bigger friends don’t take my limb later in life),” he joked in his caption.
