Jade Roper-Tolbert, a past contestant on the reality TV series "The Bachelor," won a $1 million fantasy football contest earlier this month.

Tolbert, who is in her first season regularly playing fantasy sports, entered the maximum 150 lineups into the DraftKings' "Millionaire Maker" contest on the weekend's four NFL wild-card games.

Following her "win", collusion claims were made within the fantasy community prompting the runner-up to seek legal counseling. The two were accused of building separate lineups in order to ensure a victory.

DraftKings on Saturday removed Tolbert's name as the winner following a three-week investigation.

David Purdum of ESPN noted that a total of 298 out of the 300 lineups between Jade and Tanner were unique, leading to the accusations of collusion.  

"It is incredibly important for us to establish that Jade's win is nothing more than pure luck," the couple told Purdum in an email about the situation. "We are confident that DraftKings will determine the same."

Lineup sharing is in direct violation of DraftKings rules.
