Tim Tebow Is Perfect for 'Dancing With the Stars'

tim tebowIt looks like we've finally got a Tim Tebow rumor we can all get behind! My apologies to Katy Perry, Lindsey Vonn, and all the other ladies the quarterback's been falsely linked with lately, but as usual it's all about work for this good old-fashioned Christian boy. It seems the Denver Broncos quarterback is a name being brought up amongst the folks over at Dancing With the Stars.

How solid is it? Well, there are no solid names out yet for the cast. But with ABC currently scouting around for the right mix of celebrities for Season 14, he's got the vote of someone pretty darn important.


None other than dancer Karina Smirnoff says she'd love to teach this dude how to lead her around the dance floor! As she told People:

He can run, jump, pass, throw touchdowns. All [that] is missing is to see if he has the dance skills. That would make him an all around athlete and someone that I would love to dance with on the show.

All good points. She's danced with mostly actors, but after her disappointing ninth place finish when paired with boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., this could be Karina's chance to show off how she can hone the skills of an athlete to achieve perfection on the dance floor.

But she could have picked any athlete's name out of the air. Why Tebow? Coming off her Season 13 win with All My Children star J.R. Martinez, it could be Karina's gotten that taste for winning. And who better than the guy who took the NFL by storm this year to help get her back into the finale? Tebow has the heart of a champion. He's confident in himself, and he's committed to success.

And while it's true, he may not have a Super Bowl ring, Tebow's got an incredible knack of sidestepping controversy and keeping his eye on the ball -- literally. Now put that on the dance floor, where he could ignore the television audience and just focus on moving Karina around. It could work.

Hey, if nothing else, he does a mean finishing number. Can't you just see the two of them Tebowing in front of the judges?

What do you think, would Tim Tebow make a good contestant on Dancing With the Stars?
