Bachelorette 10’s JJ O’Brien: Former Game Show Contestant! (VIDEO)
We'll learn over the course of The Bachelorette Season 10 whether JJ "Pantsapreneur" O’Brien will win Andi Dorfman's heart. But even if he doesn't, he can take solace in knowing that he's been a big winner on a very different non-scripted show.
Years ago, the now-30-year-old Stanford MBA showed off his pricing prowess on venerable CBS game show The Price Is Right, as JJ did surprisingly well on that show. Clearly, the man knows money.
In a video that was posted to YouTube in 2011, JJ can be seen bidding on a fancy TV, which he wins after he comes the closest to guessing the actual retail price. Then, on his way up to the stage to meet Drew Carey, he jumps all around the set jubilantly and pumps his fist in the air. It's probably for the best that he didn't act like that when he got his rose from Andi.
Then, JJ — decked out in a Stanford T-shirt — plays a pricing game called Squeeze Play, in which he accurately removes one number from the price of a bedroom set to win the prize. It's definitely hilarious to see this throwback footage of JJ and see how upbeat and enthusiastic he is. We think he'd make a great fit for Andi, but we'll have to wait and see if she agrees with us.
At any rate, it's safe to assume that JJ got to watch his Bachelorette premiere episode on a pretty sweet TV.
What do you think of JJ's Price Is Right appearance? And do you think he's a good match for Andi?
