You might not know who Tim Tebow is (we certainly didn't), but your boyfriend definitely does. The former Heisman Trophy winner and college football standout at the University of Florida was one of the best college players in the country during the last four years and will be making his home in Denver (UPDATE: New York Jets!) after being drafted by the Broncos earlier this year. But will he also become the next Bachelor?
According to host Chris Harrison, maybe! "I talked to Tim Tebow yesterday. I'm really not joking. His brother Robby was there. I asked him in front of God and Country [if he would appear on the show]," said Chris before the ESPY Awards last week. So what was his answer?
"He hasn't said yes yet, but he did say he would be a better version than Jesse Palmer, the last football player turned Bachelor. I told him, 'Wait until you play in the NFL first my friend, because Jesse Palmer was quite the bench warmer.'" Of course, we all remember when Jesse was The Bachelor. Swoon! But what do the ladies think of Tim? Well, Ali Fedotowsky for one, is on board. "If I was an NFL player, I would do it. It's a great way to meet quality women. I would recommend it."
