Ronda Rousey Says Yes to Marine Who Asked Her on a Date




A Marine asked the MMA fighter Ronda Rousey to the Marine Corps Ball and she said yes.

Jarrod Haschert asked Rousey out in a video posted on Facebook that has since received more than 4 million views.

TMZ cameraman caught up with Rousey and asked the 28-year-old if she had seen the viral video.

“I just saw it the other day…I would go for sure,” she said although she added she is unsure how to reach out to Haschert.

There’s a catch though. Rousey wants him to find dates for her friends and “he’s gotta be a gentleman.” 

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!!

The Marine, who is based in North Carolina, explained in the video that Rousey is his celebrity crush and that if she can make it, she will “truly be making my dream come true.”

A rep for Rousey did not immediately respond to FOX411’s request for comment.

Haschert isn’t the first Marine to ask out a celebrity. In 2011, Sgt. Scott Moore, of the 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines in Musa Qala, Afghanistan, posted a video on YouTube asking Mila Kunus to accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball.

FOX411 helped Moore score his dream date when we spoke to her. “I’ll go,” Kunis told FOX411 at the time. “I’ll do it.”

    One assault force teams up with another. Imagine some scmuck or two rousting them on the street. Oh wait, she wants other Marines for her girlfriends……so first the ner’do-wells disrespect the couple then find themselves in a classic envelopment. Take no prisoners.

    Her win!!!

  • guest

    She should apply for SEAL training in January.

    • bbabbitt

      Or Ranger School. That would be interesting.

  • James Reilly

    what a cool thing for RRR to do

  • Leon Suchorski

    Let’s face it, there ARE a lot of women that support our military, and regardless of what some might say, she is showing her support.

    • Nick Simon

      Well said Leon!

    • jennie

      I hope she says YES

  • billy bob

    I hope they are all nice to the Marines!

  • Navyjag907

    She has a good heart and is attractive. I’m sure the Marine and his buddies (the ones that get dates with her friends) will have a good time.//I suspect she hasn’t had the best of luck with men or with life so a Marine gentleman might be just what she needs.

    • jennie

      Well I like this army guy that I met on fb. Hope something comes from him. He’s deployed til Feb 8 2016

  • artymgysgt

    Of course the Marines will be gentlemen or else they may get their heads bashed

    • Marine64

      Bashed by their dates! : ) .

  • Chuck

    I’m curious I’m a retired Marine I was in for over 25 years, I have never heard of a Marine Corps ball being held so late. Was he just excited when he said Dec 11th? Maybe they are deployed and thats when they get to have their ball? Why would you have the ball Dec 11th when the birthday is Nov 10th?

    • Hal Augustine

      I was wondering the same thing. I’m retired Army, and I know the Marines Birthday is Nov 10, for my son was born in Okinawa, Japan on that day!!

      • jennie

        Hey Hal r u taken? I’d love to meet a nice army guy. I hope this army guy I’m chatting on fb is serious. Because I am

    • Marine64

      Same here. Probably Nov 11th even though it is after the 10th. As you know, sometimes they shift a day or two before or after the 10th especially on large Marine Corps bases where there is limited space for events.

    • jennie

      I don’t know. He’s probably pretty excited. I’ve always want to go to one

  • medmm3

    From a USN swabby Vet……I really didn’t know that the Marine Corps. Had Ball’s !!!!

    • ACE

      Squids…losers. Had a squid chief living next door to me in VaBch, and the numb-nut was cleaning a weapon w/o making it safe. How do you spell fool. A round went into into my home. What a rummy.

  • Craig

    Did the Marine find dates for her girl friends yet??

  • Mark

    Thanks s much to Ms. Rousey for supporting our troops. Jarrod if you are lucky enough to get a second date might I suggest a tour of the Marine Corp martial arts training school!

  • Gunny1976

    Marine why are you wearing your cover in door? Square yourself away before the MC Ball.

  • nice couple)
