Bobby Jacobs Is from California
Bobby Jacobs was born on March 11, 1986 and hails from Newport Beach, California. He graduated from Corona del Mar High School in 2005.
Jacobs Played Professional Volleyball
In high school, Jacobs was part of the varsity basketball team. But in recent years, his main focus has been volleyball.
He has been playing for the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour since 2017, and in the P1440 event series since 2018.
Jacobs Owns the Tillow Business
The Tillow is a nifty reinvention of the traditional beach towel. It doubles as a towel, pillow, bag, is water-resistant, and is equipped with a concealed storage pocket, touchscreen pocket, and headphone hole.
Jacobs and his business partner, Katie Everds, came up with the concept in 2013. After crowdsourcing through Kickstarter, they launched the Tillow online in 2015.
Together with Amanda Stanton, he also co-founded SJ Presets, which includes a collection of preset photographs of Laguna Beach.
Jacobs and Stanton Met on Instagram
Amanda Stanton vied for Ben Higgins’ heart on The Bachelor season 20, but finished fourth.
She went on to appear in Bachelor in Paradise season 3 and was engaged to Josh Murray at the end of it. The couple broke up, however, in December 2016. In BIP season 4, she dated fellow Bachelor alum Robby Hayes before they broke up in September 2017.
In 2018, the mother-of-two-girls had a new man in her life, namely Bobby Jacobs. Amanda confessed in an interview that they met on Instagram when Jacobs slid into her DMs.
“We don’t really have a great story. I wish we had a more exciting story. We were saying that we should just say we met at the dog park or something,” Stanton said. Jacobs even won over Stanton’s daughters, Kinsley and Charlie.
Stanton Reportedly Assaulted Bobby
A few months after Stanton and Jacobs went public with their relationship, Stanton was arrested in Las Vegas in September 2018. She was charged with domestic violence for allegedly assaulting Jacobs.
Amanda was reportedly in Vegas for a friend’s bachelorette party when an alleged physical altercation broke out between her and Jacobs in a hotel room. Hotel staff called police after Stanton allegedly battered Jacobs.
After an investigation, police found probable cause to arrest Stanton for battery domestic violence. She was released a day later and a rep for her issued a statement on the incident.
Rep Steve Honig apologized on her behalf in the statement and said,“[S]he had a few drinks at a bachelorette party and when hotel security asked her and Bobby to quiet down, she got a bit rambunctious.”
“Amanda gave Bobby what she thought was a playful shove; hotel security did their job and reported the incident to the police, who in turn did their job,” the statement continued. “Despite Bobby explaining this was not an ill-intended shove, the police still had to do their job which Amanda completely respects and understands.”
After the alleged assault, Stanton and Jacobs’ relationship continued. But although everything was seemingly going great between them, the couple broke up in April 2019.
Stanton and Jacobs Broke up before Her Birthday
By the looks of it, Stanton and Jacobs’ relationship was progressing well. Their respective Instagram accounts showed their various trips together and Jacobs spending time with Kinsley and Charlie. Among their last posts together, Stanton wished her beau a happy birthday on March 11. They had reportedly moved in together recently, too.
Then, in early April, Jacobs responded to a few comments on an Instagram post revealing they had broken up. He said that they were still amicable and he continues to be there for Kinsley and Charlie. Jacobs has since switched his Instagram to private.
Stanton confirmed their breakup in a series of Instagram stories. They were reportedly taking some time apart and she was “blindsided” when he announced their split on Instagram.

💔Just weeks ago Amanda Stanton & her boyfriend Bobby Jacobs got a new place together in Laguna Beach. Since then Bobby and Amanda’s pictures have been filled with people commenting on the breakup that seemed to come out of nowhere. Amanda said she was “blindsided” & Bobby said he’ll “always be there for her girls”. Charlie and Kinsley, who are just 5 & 7, looked up to Bobby as a father figure. Bobby and Amanda met through IG and in May of 2018 they made their relationship public. @usweekly Did an article not long ago where Amanda was saying how she thought he was the one, expressing how she wanted to get married and have another baby. 😥It’s unclear what really caused the breakup and it’s unfair to speculate. Let’s all try and support them, not tear down or say mean things about Amanda as a mom. 😔 Also, she went on her IG stories last week stating she’s been getting threatening emails from someone who has pre-op pictures from her breast augmentation and they’ve been messaging them to people she follows. Sick and wrong. No one deserves that. I truly wish them the best. @amanda_stantonn @bobbyjacobs @kins_taagram @charliie_emma . . . . #bachelornews #bachelorbreakup #bachelornation #thebachelor #bachelorinparadise #amandastanton #bobbyandamanda
She claimed there was no fighting or buildup to their breakup. She even believed they would be engaged by the end of this year. They apparently hadn’t discussed how to disclose their separation to the pubic, so she was surprised when he revealed they broke up on Instagram.
Nonetheless, she confirmed that she’s fine after their breakup and is focusing on her kids. She enjoyed her 29th birthday festivities on April 9 with her daughters and friends, which she documented on her Instagram.
