Bachelor Contestant Accused of Cheating in Fantasy Football
Allegations and accusations of cheating and infidelity appear to be the norm on ABC's hit television show The Bachelor. I am going to admit I have based that statement on hearsay because I haven't been able to stay awake through an entire episode of the show during its many seasons.
The one thing I have found The Bachelor doesn't do a good job at is creating couples that last. The show has succeeded in making people famous who probably have no reason for us to know who they are. Such a person is a former contestant Jade Roper-Tolbert.
Roper Tolbert and her husband, also a former Bachelor alum are accused of cheating. Not in their marriage but on the DraftKings Fantasy Football App. Officials with DraftKings say they are investigating the couple's recent big win the Millionaire Maker.
There are accusations of collusion between Roper-Tolbert and her husband Tanner. The website is it investigating the over 300 different entries the couple submitted as part of the NFL Wild Card Weekend Contest.
When you consider that the couple was able to submit 300 plus "fantasy football" lineups made up of players from just eight teams you can draw a few conclusions. One, they obviously don't have other jobs they have to go to. Two, at least one of the members of the couple takes fantasy football way too seriously. It's the husband by the way.
And third, with over 300 chances even a blind squirrel can find a nut. I think these people just created as many scenarios as they could. One of those scenarios included all the right players and all the right plays. Sounds to me like DraftKings will be revising their entry rules before next season.
