Tim Tebow is NOT going to be the Bachelor. End of story.
Though, we were already pretty sure he wasn't anyway, because the show's producer already said so here.
Regardless, the rumor mill started, and people got their hopes up.
"Haha rumors can be crazy! Even though I've watched the show before, I'm definitely not gonna be on The Bachelor."
Plus, Chris Harrison really admits that he's to blame for the rumor:
"This one is 120% on me. I co-hosted Access Live yesterday and Kit Hoover mentioned that we were doing a story on Tim Tebow… and I was just throwing out this anecdotal story that I had run into Tebow and had asked him to be The Bachelor. Kit jumped on the story and I never really got to explain. This was completely and utterly my fault. It was about a year or so ago and someone introduced me to Tim and we got talking. With Tebow and I standing together, people said, 'Make him the next Bachelor!'" Harrison continued. "I jokingly said, 'Do you want to be The Bachelor?' He jokingly said yes. Obviously, he is not going to be The Bachelor.
"I love that people think I have the power to ordain the new Bachelor. That's not how it works. Let me tell you this - if Tim Tebow wanted to be The Bachelor, it would absolutely be phenomenal television."
We say that you probably have some pull, Chris! You've been there long enough!
Either way it was an inspired idea and the creators should go after him. Hound him until he folds under pressure!
Sorry to burst your bubbles, guys!
