A couple weeks ago, 22-year-old United States Marine Jarrod Haschert posted a video to Facebook asking if Ronda Rousey would go to the Marine Corps Ball with him on Dec. 11:
Hey guys, I'm trying to take Ronda Rousey to the Marine Corps Ball this year and I need your help to reach out to her and her fans. Please share this post and video. Thank you!!Posted by Jarrod Hash on Saturday, August 22, 2015
Today, TMZ caught up with Rousey in a Whole Foods parking lot to ask her for a reply.
It turns out she has seen the video.
"The fight got moved so I actually can go. I don't know how to hit him up. Do I call him?"
That's a yes!
There's just one condition:
"He's gotta be a gentleman. I'm not a first date kind of a girl."
And for one last confirmation the cameraman asks again, "You are 100-percent sure you'll totally go with the guy?" And Rousey says, "Yeah, I'll totally go."
Definitely a yes.
She even jokes, with her friends standing behind her, "He needs to find dates for my girls, then we'll all go!"
Earlier TMZ had phoned Haschert into their show to ask him a few questions. He seems like he'd be a great date. His last plea to Rousey was, "You're everything that I do my job for. You're an American champion."
