Bachelor Nation's Jade Roper Toblert & Tanner Tolbert Respond to Fantasy Football Cheating Allegations

The Bachelor‘s Jade Roper Toblert and her husband Tanner Tolbert are responding to allegations that she cheated to win a $1 million prize in Draft Kings’ fantasy football challenge this past weekend.

If you missed it, Jade won the jackpot in a recent fantasy football lineup, but fans accused them of cheating and making hundreds of potential fantasy lineups to better their chances.

“We respect that Draft Kings feels they must do their due diligence in regard to Jade winning their $1 million dollar prize for the fantasy contest for the NFL’s wild-card round this weekend. Though we must ponder, would the questions, accusations and curiosity about this win be the same if the winner had been male and someone who wasn’t already in the public eye?” the couple said in a statement to TMZ. “It is incredibly important for us to establish that Jade’s win is nothing more than pure luck and we are confident that Draft Kings will determine the same.”
