It should come as no surprise that a date won via a bet on Twitter would be chronicled on social media.
On Wednesday night, John Goehrke, a 20-year-old marketing major at the University of Missouri, had his very publicized date with tennis star Genie Bouchard. Goehrke had seen Bouchard tweet about a Falcons win during Super Bowl LI and asked if she would agree to a date if the Patriots rallied to win. She said yes.
New England won, and Bouchard went ahead with the date.

The night out included taking in a Brooklyn Nets basketball game against the Milwaukee Bucks*, and it seems that Bouchard paid for Goehrke’s flight and hotel room.
*How could Bouchard not know that Mizzou was playing Alabama on Wednesday?
The happy couple even took part a television interview while at the Nets game.
Apparently, Goehrke was happy with how the night was progressing.
On Thursday morning, Bouchard tweeted another photo from the previous night.
UPDATE: The two hit it off. After leaving the game, TMZ was on hand to ask for more details about the night. Bouchard said she’d go on another date with Goehrke.
