Tim Tebow shoots down 'Bachelor' rumors

On Monday night, as Mrs. Brinson and I were absolutely, positively not catching up on this season of the "Bachelor" and wondering how Ben could totally not realize that Courtney's absolutely crazy, I spotted something float across the old RSS feed, courtesy of Lindsay Jones of The Denver Post: a rumor that posited the notion of Tim Tebow as the next "Bachelor."

This rumor started because of an interview that "Bachelor" host Chris Harrison did with Access Hollywood, in which Harrison said he'd met Tebow, thought Tebow would be "a great 'Bachelor'" and even asked Tebow to participate.

“He did say yes… but he would never do it,” Harrison continued. “He has a little job called quarterback at least for another year.”

Harrison also added "they always say yes" -- any celebrity who's asked about their vague interest in the show probably jokes that they would do the show. So you'd think there's nothing to see here, but the comments picked up steam and, eventually, Tebow had to address them on Twitter.

"Haha rumors can be crazy! Even though I've watched the show before, I'm definitely not gonna be on the Bachelor. #JessePalmer," Tebow tweeted on Tuesday morning.

So there you go: no "Bachelor" for Tebow.

Which should've been obvious from the start. I've got a buddy who was a finalist for the show (no, really), and he bailed mainly because the post-show commitments and requirements are pretty stringent. (You have to propose to the lady who wins. Ah, true love.)

The best part about Tebow on the show wouldn't even be the ratings or the unintentional comedy, though. It would be that every single member of the football media would be required to DVR the show and watch it by Tuesday morning.

Tim Tebow shoots down 'Bachelor' rumors

The one place Tebow did attend was a church, and 20,000 people showed up to listen to him. How many would show up for you? He spends his time doing stuff for kids that suffer from very serious illnesses, there are no camara's there.  Hype is strange thing and the media has a fascination with sex. Tebow is devout in his beliefs and somehow this offends you.  Maybe it is you with the problem and not him. On Sundays he laces them up,  he has his fans, he is a good teammate. I think he is going to be an excellent QB and a great leader.

Tim Tebow shoots down 'Bachelor' rumors

Both need a barber.  Is this the first time Tebow's ever refused to be the center of attention?  The first time he's ever dodged a TV camera?

Tim Tebow shoots down 'Bachelor' rumors

Wasn't Jessie Palmer on the show after his failed attempt to be an NFL QB?  It seemed to work out fine for him, why not Tebow?  Well the sex thing really does kill the possibility, the show probably could not find 25 virgins to appear.

Tim Tebow shoots down 'Bachelor' rumors

I am shocked that any grown man would admit to watching this nonsense, be it Brinson or Tebow.

Tim Tebow shoots down 'Bachelor' rumors

Tebow can't be on that stupid show because the "Bachelor" on the show has to bang each of the sluts they hire to appear.   Though, the show calls them "dates".  So, Tebow couldn't appear on the show.

And, one more reason to hate Tebow - he admitted he's watched the show.  Might as well of just come out and admitted he had a vag.
