LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A couple from "The Bachelor" is possibly in hot water over a $1 million prize.

Fantasy sports provider DraftKings is conducting a review into Jade Roper Tolbert and her husband Tanner, ESPN reports.

Over the weekend the couple took part in an NFL fantasy football contest. Jade won a $1 million prize.

DraftKings is looking into if she colluded with her husband to double their chance to win, which is against the rules.
