In the midst of his new partnership with CheapTickets, Rodgers sat down for an exclusive interview with PureWow and discussed the upcoming season of the popular dating series. When asked about his personal experience on JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette, the 31-year-old sports commentator revealed that it’s all about pacing yourself on the first night.
“[My] first advice is to take it slow on the alcohol on night one,” he said. “Because it is a long, long night, and the drinks are strong.”
Rodgers even spilled a behind-the-scenes secret from Fletcher’s season and admitted that he purposely held onto the same drink the whole night. “That first episode, my drink had no ice in it because it was the same drink almost the entire night, and I kept holding it,” he laughed. “So, I felt like that was a smart move. I didn’t get tipsy, I was aware the whole time, and I was in it.”
