During the show, Colin gave an example where one has done well after marriage, thereby urging Jason Whitlock to get married as well.
In response, Jason Whitlock shared his thoughts as singlehood being a strength and marriage being a distraction for him. Moreover, he projected himself strong providing an example of another person who has done well in the career without any commitments demanded by marriage. He stated,
Let me give you another guy who believes there “Advantage to being single”.
Chip Kelly he has no life balance. He is all in football not married just a 100% football 24*7. He thinks it gives him a great advantage in it.
I think it’s an advantage in my career. I have more time to think than my competitors. So I tell people all the time. It’s not that I am smarter than anybody I just got more time to think while you are thinking about your life and kids
Furthermore, Jason elaborated himself as he said,
And she is nagging you or your husband nagging you whatever.
Jason's perspective was reflecting the reality of life post marriage with a wife when he said,
I think I’ll be honest with you. I have lived long enough to know it’s not an advantage. Your life is out of balance.
She needs the stability you need the routine it puts in a better position, to excel.
Jason further explained his problem with marriage and the wishes of a wife in another instance when he said,
My problem is I wanna relax at home and she will be like let's hit the club.
Colin laughed out loud too at this problem and Jason agreed and joined him too.
Alhough Jason has a problem getting married, but he definitely had a girlfriend as per his tweet in 2015, which says,
Despite his problem with marriage, he seems to be dating a girlfriend, which is, of course, a mystery until he confirms his relationship to the media.
His love life under tight guard and focus upon the hard side of marriage with a wife may raise a rumor about him being on the gay side. Bu this is possibly just a rumor. However, Jason has given a statement in 2016 supporting LGBT community, when he said,
In sports, there are opportunities, we’ve seen it for sports to be a leader in social change, and clearly I don’t want to avoid this man or this tragedy that affected the LGBT community, and there’s a reason why the LGBT community wants the sports world to embrace people of the LGBT community and have a role model for gay and lesbian athletes.”
Back in 2012, Jason Whitlock got over a twitter fight with Shaquille O’Neal after he tweeted about the weight loss competition between Shaq and Charles Barkley.
Shaq was not going to take the criticism and counter-attacked with the statement,
“Jason Whitlock: I tell you what, You can come here and box me any time you want! All muscle right here, baby, trust me.”
Jason was in no mood to fight, and replied with the tweet,
What did Shaq say? He didn't hear about P90Whitlock? .... — Jason Whitlock (@WhitlockJason) October 31, 2012
The fight possibly subsided as no more counter attacking hit the media or Twitter.
