Somehow, JoJo's mom, who is exotic and loud and forceful and was once the biggest catch in the lake, is married to Herbert Kornfeld, Onion columnist. Seriously, he's JoJo's dad. 100%. He's a man who doesn't say much, but when he says something, ohhhhhh, when he says something, he... really pronounces those four words well.
Also, JoJo's brothers have stopped being dicks, probably because they're afraid of their mother.
Nobody likes Jordan. OK, they kind of DO like him, and that to them is exactly what's most unlikable about him -- they can see right through his QB "everyone come love me" bullshit. Mom thinks he's a "playboy." Dad surely thinks something, but keeps it to himself, biding his time, waiting for that moment when JoJo's mom stops talking. In the meantime, Jordan refuses to ask for JoJo's hand from Pops, and when Mom makes him promise he'll never break JoJo's heart, he gives a pause. Then a longer pause. Another pause. And thinks about how badly he wants to lie, cocks a half-smile, and says, "absolutely not."
