You know their love affair by now: some random dude from Twitter, 20-year-old John Goehrke, bet 23-year-old tennis star and Sports Illustrated hottie Genie Bouchard that if the New England Patriots could overcome a 28-3 score to beat the Atlanta Falcons at Super Bowl LI, she would have to take him on a date.
Tom Brady took care of the rest, and they had their date at a Knicks game... and then kept going on dates (to the beach and also her couch). It was encouragement to average joes everywhere to reach for the stars and bet famous people to date them on social media.
Their surprise love affair (likely just for show now that Bouchard is reportedly dating pro hockey player Jordan Caron) rekindled at this year's Super Bowl. They walked the red carpet and sat together at the game, sharing their day on Twitter with the hashtag #SuperBowlDate.
Their day was arrange by NFL Canada. They held a Q&A with fans on Twitter, where they told all about their PR-orchestrated romance.
Love is real.
