Controversy Brews After Bachelor Couple Wins Million Dollars on DraftKings

Watch Here:

Even with the premiere of Peter’s season, it seems the biggest news in Bachelor Nation centers on Paradise Season 2 stars, Jade and Tanner Tolbert. 

On Monday, Jade just experienced a $1,000,000 payout from DraftKings, an online betting app, for her fantasy playoff predictions. Now, sharp observers are accusing her of colluding with husband Tanner to game the system. 

Technically, each DraftKings subscriber is allowed to create 150 unique teams to maximize their chances, but it looks like Jade and Tanner each created 150 unique teams, totaling 300 unique teams across both of their profiles, and maximizing their chances at winning.

Sluethy Redditors are wondering if the two of them might have used a computer to help them generate wins. 

Technically, this kind of behavior is against DraftKings rules, so if the company chooses to pay out, they’d be liable to litigation from those who played the draft honestly.

Interestingly, Draft Kings sent Jade a congratulations tweet, and then promptly deleted it. 

Since then, the company issued a statement, saying: “We take the integrity and fairness of our contests very seriously and are looking into this matter.”

This story is breaking in real time, and any of the accusations are currently speculative and alleged.
