Tim Tebow as ‘The Bachelor’? We Only Wish This Was a Joke! (VIDEO)

Tim TebowReality television is more or less synonymous with "dumb ideas." But we may have the dumbest yet: Tim Tebow as ... wait for it ... The Bachelor! First one to shout out what's wrong with this picture wins a prize!

Did you yell Tim Tebow's a good Christian boy? You win a pat on your back (sorry, you'll have to give it to yourself, I'm too busy rubbing my forehead in agony over this whole concept)! Hey ... it's better than a date with Ben Flajnik, isn't it? Gah!

And yet, there's more to this than rumor, folks. Host Chris Harrison has said flat out that he actually asked Tebow if he'd sign up for the gig, and Tebow said yes. There are no papers signed, and Harrison has said it could just as likely not happen as actually go through. But the fact is, someone saw Tebow and said "ooh, great guy for The Bachelor"

What were they smoking? I'm not trying to pick on the Denver Broncos quarterback here. I respect the heck out of a guy who is willing to wait for Ms. Right instead of Ms. Right Outside the Door of the Stadium. Tim Tebow's abstinence pledge doesn't affect how he entertains us on the football field.

But, ahem, let's just state the obvious here, folks. The Bachelor isn't about passes and touchdowns. If we really have to use sports references here, I'd use baseball ... those boys are all about taking it all the way to home plate if you know what I mean. Producer Mike Fleiss has actually spilled that most of the guys on this show sleep with an average of three women during the filming.

That last little tidbit grosses me out enough to be tempted to start a petition to make Tebow take the job just for some fresh air! But I'm pretty sure two episodes in, and we'd all be snoring. Let's face it, we don't watch The Bachelor because we think he's a guy we'd actually WANT to marry ourselves! Mr. Sweet and Saving Myself had better stick to the football field; there are plenty of jerks out there who can hand out roses.

Who would you rather see take over The Bachelor role when Flajnik's gone?

I think it would be nice to see a young man, treat women right, instead of like crap.

PEOPLE ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT HE'S A VIRGIN. THAT'S HILARIOUS.



IF HE IS A VIRGIN, THEN HIS HAND IS A SLUT.

@ billsfan - Actually you are right.  I don't watch the show just because I know the whole nature of it but the thing is it's not about what would be nice to see, but rather what people want to see - and unfortunately, it wouldn't be Tebow.

Tebow just doesn't seem like the type of guy who would do "The Bachelor". Doesn't fit the profile to me.

Nice, Skyhook. Let me guess, you're on the "Rush is a jerk for saying mean things about women" bandwagon, right?


Maybe Tebow would be a breath of fresh air - maybe, since sex is off the table, we'd see a lot of dates with them actually getting to know each other instead of scheming to be the first girl into bed. Maybe it would hold the ladies to a higher standard than "I look better in a bikini than you do". I dunno. I don't really care, since I don't watch the show, but it is an interesting concept.

@PONYCHASER - "RUSH"? WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? I DON'T GET IT.



I JUST DON'T BELIEVE THAT WHOLE "CHRISTIAN" GIMMICK THAT TIM TEBOW IS GETTING FAMOUS FROM.



BEING "CHRISTIAN" DOESN'T IMPRESS EVERYONE.



YOU DO REALIZE IT'S JUST A GIMMICK, RIGHT?

"...sex is off the table..."? What man doesn't think about sex? If you believe that TimTebow doesn't look at women, and think about looks, u are delusional.

The show would have to find a different group of young LADIES if Tebow is the bachelor. Look what happened this season when the parents didn't want their daughter to live with Ben before marriage. Ben dropped her like a "hot potato."

The idea has my attention. It sounds like it would be a very tasteful show, very interesting, very different slant than in the past. I would assume he would be in good company or a lot of liars, or a doctor exam for each lady to pass?
