Did Jade Roper & Tanner Tolbert Break Rules?
One of the major rules of the online football bet is that people cannot conspire to “pool” their outcome. It’s against the site’s rules and calls for a void of prize money. Once other players started looking at Jade Roper’s results, they raised concerns about something fishy with The Bachelor babe’s big win.
Both Jade and also Tanner Tolbert submitted the max number of 150 entries each. But their lineups didn’t have much crossover. That was the first sign the two may have coordinated to strengthen their chances of winning.
Investigation Under Way
TMZ reports that the online gambling company DraftKings is currently investigating The Bachelor‘s Jade Roper and her Bachelor in Paradise hubby Tanner Tolbert. As of now, the two haven’t made any statements, aside for her original post about her win. Be sure to watch the new season of the match making show.
