Tim Tebow's faith may be an open book (his nickname isn't God's Quarterback for nothing), but his love life is nothing short of a mystery. Despite the fact that he has been photographed with various women throughout his college years, Tebow has never attested to any particular lady being his girlfriend. In fact, the last the star quarterback spoke of his personal life he claimed he was a virgin.
At the moment, Tebow might be the most eligible bachelor. Young, handsome and maybe even miraculous, the Denver Broncos quarterback has got a solid resume. On Sunday night he further proved his prowess after throwing an 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play of overtime against the Pittsburgh Steelers, cleaning the win 29-23.
Now, more than ever, eager females are asking Is he single? If you Google Tim Tebow girlfriend a whopping 1.8 million results pop up. None offer any concrete information, as the Florida native keeps much of her personal life under wraps.
One young hopeful thought that a YouTube video might win over the elusive quarterback. Brittany Kayla Salvesen of the Christian sorority Sigma Phi Lambda (Sisters of the Lord) decided to post a YouTube recording asking Tebow to the prom. The sophomore from Midwestern State University in Texas thought that faith could bring them together.
Our goal is to reach out to our fellow students and our community by showing God's light, His good news and His love to them every day, she said, after which propositioning him for a date to her formal on April 20. You can view the video below.
Although such a gesture might have worked with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis and Kristin Cavallari, there has been no word on Tebow accepting Salvesen's offer.
Some think that now is the time for Tebow to strike while the iron is hot. It's one thing to prove yourself in the preseason and it's another to make your name in the regular season, but the playoffs are where stars are born, wrote Bleacher Report feature columnist Andrew Kulha. Kulha suggests that, if he wants to place his name alongside all-timers, Tebow needs to get a girlfriend.
Let's be frank-it's a smart move to set yourself up with a beautiful friend, especially if you want to be mentioned among the likes of the big stars. Brad has Angelina and George Clooney has anybody he walks into a room with, so what about Tebow?
However, Tebow is quite unlike many other male celebrities out there. He is never photographed at splashy parties and he does not have a rap sheet. In his spare time, Tebow volunteers in the Philippines, where he was born to Christian missionaries.
It is unlikely Tebow will link a centerfold to his arm any time soon.
However, rumors have swirled of his past liaisons.
One such rumor is that Tebow was dating a buxom brunette named Erin Drewes. This rumor stared when a photo of Tebow and said female surfaced on social networking sites.
Drewes was a senior at the University of Florida last year when Tebow played for the Florida Gators. After being photographed with the footballer heartthrob, Drewes became an instant sensation. She did an interview with Playboy.com's Girlwatcher to clear away the gossip.
I actually attended a Bucs game with my Dad and somebody said to me, 'Hey, I know who you are, you're Tim Tebow's girlfriend.' My Dad just laughed. As far as other people thinking it was true, they absolutely did. So let me set the record straight: I was never dating Tim Tebow, nor was I ever his girlfriend! she said.
In the spread, however, Drewes posed wearing only a painted-on football uniform. Whose jersey was drawn on her back? You guessed it, Tebow's.
Another rumor that developed from the aforementioned one was that Tebow was dating Lucy Pinder, star of the UK Big Brother and glamor model. Drewes bears a striking resemblance to Pinder, hence the confusion.
Others have speculated that the quarterback is dating Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. The athlete and her spokespeople have denied this. Lindsey is just friends with the Tebow family, a spokesperson for Vonn said (viathe New York Post's Page Six). Anyone who is trying to suggest any more to their relationship is wrong.
