Would You Watch Tim Tebow on ‘The Bachelor?’
If Tim Tebow turned out to be the next Bachelor, would you tune in?
You heard me: If Tim Tebow was the next contestant on The Bachelor, would you watch it? Because there’s a possibility that it could happen.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Broncos quarterback (who, by the way, recently signed with the talent agency William Morris Endeavor) has been approached by Bachelor host Chris Harrison about whether he’d be interested in appearing on the show. Man. How polarizing would that be? Drama!
Here’s what I mean: What if you’re a wholesome Tebow fan, but not a Bachelor fan? Would you start watching The Bachelor just to get a Tebow fix, even though you don’t particularly like the show? What if you’re a Bachelor fan, but you can’t stand Tebow? Would you boycott the season? Inquiring minds want to know!
For my part, I probably wouldn’t tune in, but that might just be because I don’t quite understand the draw of either The Bachelor OR Tim Tebow (though I do find Tebowing hilarious, especially when done by Robert Downey, Jr. at the Oscars). Overall, it’s not something I’m going to lose sleep over either way—especially since although the offer is kinda-sorta on the table, it’s probably unlikely to come to any sort of fruition. When asked whether Tebow responded positively to the proposal, Chris Harrison said about celebrity Bachelor contestants in general, “Well, they always say yes, but it never happens.” He continued, “He did say yes… but he would never do it. He has a little job called quarterback for at least another year.” Oh, right. That.
So the jury’s still out on this one. And in a not unrelated query, I ask you this: Is Taylor Swift dating Tim Tebow? Man. Even the gossip surrounding this pair of goody-two-shoes is tame.
