The Bachelorette 2016 spoilers tease that NFL player Ben Roethlisberger will be joining Jojo Fletcher and making a cameo in Season 12 – and fans are NOT happy about it. Every season of The Bachelor and
The Bachelorette includes a group date with a well-known athlete (or a whole team of them for that matter), and is some sort of sports theme. But, Chris Harrison and the producers may have dropped the ball on this one.
The Bachelorette 2016 spoilers tease that Jojo Fletcher will take some of her guys on a football-inspired group date – and NFL pro Ben Roethlisberger will be on hand. Roethlisberger is the quarterback for NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers, but he is most widely remembered for not one but TWO sexual harassment accusations, in which he was never charged or convicted.
The Steelers quarterback was accused of sexually assaulting two different women, once in 2008 and again in 2010 – both cases received a ton of press and media speculation. The 2008 case was settled between Ben and the woman privately. The second case got him suspended for six games due to a violation in the Steelers’ code of conduct.
When Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss announced on social media that Ben Roethlisberger had been tapped for a cameo – he didn’t get the reaction he had expected. Bachelorette fans were disgusted that the dating show was associating themselves with the quarterback, and by putting him on the show they are theoretically condoning his alleged behavior.
You have to admit, it is a bit creepy. Does Jojo Fletcher want a guy that was accused of sexual assault TWICE giving her guys’ dating advice? Ben Roethlisberger is probably the last guy you want telling your boyfriend hot to seal the deal.
What do you guys think? Is putting Ben Roethlisberger on The Bachelorette a bad move? Or is the past the past? Let us know what you think in the comments below and don’t forget to check CDL for all of you’re the Bachelorette 2016 spoilers and news.
