In the least-surprising news of the day, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow won’t be appearing on the ABC reality dating competition show ‘The Bachelor’. Tebow took to social media to clear up rumors that had been circulating on social media sites in the last couple of days.
“Haha rumors can be crazy! Even though I’ve watched the show before, I’m definitely not gonna be on the Bachelor. #Jesse Palmer,” Tebow tweeted.
The rumor gained steam when the show’s host, Chris Harrison, revealed that he asked Tebow if he would be interested. Harrison said during an interview with Access Hollywood:
“I’ve actually met Tim Tebow. I met him about becoming our next Bachelor,” Harrison told Access Hollywood Live’s Kit Hoover. “I think he’d be a great Bachelor.”
Asked whether Tebow seemed interested in the option, Harrison responded, “Well, they always say yes, but it never happens.”
“He did say yes… but he would never do it,” the host continued. “He has a little job called quarterback for at least another year.”
‘At least another year’? Ouch.
