Tim Tebow… as “The Bachelor”?
A number of outlets have seized on reports that the squeaky-clean Denver Broncos quarterback has been approached to star on the hit ABC reality series.
Much of the speculation was triggered by host Chris Harrison’s appearance on Monday’s “Access Hollywood Live,” during which he mentioned that Tebow was being targeted for the show.
But when Gossip Cop inquired, one network source wasn’t even sure Tebow had been approached, let alone in talks to make it happen.
Moreover, it was pointed out that Tebow’s NFL season interferes with the show’s shooting schedule.
A second source told Gossip Cop that as a devout Christian (and proud virgin), Tebow would simply not fit in with the often risqué “Bachelor” environment.
So while “The Bachelor” has previously cast a former Florida Gators-turned-NFL quarterback as its lead (Jesse Palmer), do not hold your breath for Tebowmania to come to the series.
