It’s a dream come true for Lance Corporal Jarrod Haschert as her all-time “celebrity crush” UFC superstar Ronda Rousey has accepted his online proposal on going to a date with her. The US Marine was lucky enough to make his online video proposal go viral and get an official answer from none other than Rousey herself and bring a date to the annual Marine Corps Ball at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, according to CNN.
For those who don’t know what happened during these past few days, the Haschert-Rousey flirtation began on August 22 when the US Marine posted a 34-second video online on Facebook revealing her admiration for the undefeated UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. “I love everything you do, and I think you are a phenomenal person,” Haschert said in the video.
“Which is why it would be my honor to take you to the Marine Corps Ball on December 11. I hope you take this in consideration because if you do, you will truly be making my dream come true.”With more than 200k shares and 4 million views, there’s no way that Ronda Rousey won’t be able to see the video online.
It took a while before anyone could get a response from Rousey but Splash News was able to catch up with her and share her answer to the Lance Corporal. ?According to the video posted by TMZ, she would be unable to go on a date with Haschert because she had a fight scheduled for January, meaning her training would be taking up the whole month of December. But apparently, the fight was moved to November, making way for the date, shared by CNN.
“I would go, for sure,” Rousey said in the video courtesy of Splash News. Unfortunately, the only problem they have is how to contact each other. “I don’t know how to… hit him up and say, ‘Yeah, I want to go with you,'” she said. “…Do I have to call him or do I set up a time and place like ‘Never Been Kissed,’ and just show up?”
Jokingly, she also asked Haschert to also help her girls in finding dates before she could accept her proposal. But we think the only important thing she said during the video was that “He’s got to be a gentleman.” Otherwise, we give Haschert the best of luck.
