Is this guy the most eligible bachelor in sports?
After a summer complete with concert hijinks and late-night cameos, J.J. Watt gets back to doing what he does best- putting the heat on NFL quarterbacks. But after the games, J.J. admits that he lives a boring life to ensure he can perform at his best. That being said, it must be hard to resist some of the women coming his way.
The most recent caller is Instagram smokeshow Lindsey Pelas, who told J.J. in an interview with TMZ to “slide in her DMs.” A little over a week later, she refused to share if Watt had actually taken her up on the offer.
Here’s the full video:
As of now, J.J. Watt remains single. In recent months, Pelas is not the only female celebrity Watt has been linked to. Earlier this offseason, multiple sources reported that Watt was dating tennis star Caroline Wozniacki. The pair was spotted at a Wisconsin-Duke basketball game, and Watt flew to Europe to support Woz during the French Open.
If the relationship is in fact a real thing, the pair do a great job keeping it a secret. Watt was not with Wonzniacki when she recently celebrated her 25th birthday, nor was she mentioned in a single second of what must be thousands of hours of Hard Knocks footage. Perhaps she was just using J.J. as a rebound, after reportedly being dumped by fiancé Rory McIlroy over the phone.
Either way, both seem happy about their current relationship status. As for Watt, the attention will keep coming as long as he keeps making plays. But for men everywhere, please slide into that woman’s DMs.
