Sorry ladies, but Tim Tebow won't be fantasy dating or finding his soul mate on The Bachelor.
The Denver Broncos quarterback dispelled any rumors of his potential TV gig with a good-humored post on Twitter, including a shout out to former Bachelor Jesse Palmer.
"Haha rumors can be crazy! Even though I've watched the show before, I'm definitely not gonna be on the Bachelor. #JessePalmer," wrote Tebow, 24.

Picture it: Tebowing … with a rose in hand.
Denver Broncos quarterback and pop culture sensation Tim Tebow has been approached to be the next Bachelor, host Chris Harrison revealed on Access Hollywood Live Monday.
No word yet on whether Tebow, 24, is interested in the gig (though Harrison apparently joked that he's already agreed to it).
Judging by the public interest in his dinner date with Taylor Swift, the NFL star would likely attract quite a roster of women willing to vie for his attention on the ABC reality show.

Just friends after all?
Taylor Swift and Tim Tebow did indeed dine together on Monday night, a rep for a restaurant in Century City, Calif., confirms to PEOPLE. But another onlooker says they didn't seem to be too cuddly.
"I would say they came in more as friends," the source says. "Taylor came in with another young male and seemed to be with him more than Tebow. However, it was very hard to determine because they all seemed to be good friends."

You simply cannot have dinner with someone in Hollywood without setting off the rumor mill.
Such was the case for Taylor Swift, who was reportedly spotted out at dinner with Tim Tebow in Century City, Calif. on Monday night.
According to ClevverNews the pair may have been with their agents (read: business meeting), but they arrived together and the NFL star, 24, walked the country starlet – who was spotted catching a flight to Sydney the same day – out afterward (read: potential romance!) Reps did not immediately reply to requests for comment.

They're two of the biggest names in American sports – and now, they're friends.
New York Knicks star point guard Jeremy Lin, 23, and Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow , 24 – both famously devout Christians – have "connected," Lin's former chaplain at Harvard, Adrian Tam, tells PEOPLE.
"They've spoken over the telephone. Jeremy's been a fan of Tebow's for a while, but only recently were they able to connect," says Tam of Lin, who's followed Tebow since his quarterback days on the national champion University of Florida football team.
"His comment to me was that Tim is a really great guy and that he's very inspired by him," adds Tam.

Tim Tebow got on one knee in Indianapolis Saturday night – to "Tebow" with Maria Menounos in the VIP section of ESPN's Super Bowl party. It was a special treat for the Extra hostess, who Tebowed solo on the Golden Globes red carpet in January.
Nearby, Tom Cruise's son Connor and his posse held court at a table, while Spike Lee, bedecked in Giants gear, relaxed with his son; Shaquille O'Neal cuddled with pint-sized girlfriend Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander; and Drake warmed up for his set by handing out shots to women near the stage.

Having already demonstrated his fancy footwork on the football field, is Tim Tebow ready to step onto the ballroom floor?
Affirmative, according to most-recent champ on Dancing with the Stars, J.R. Martinez.
Saying he and the Denver Bronco quarterback – and Jockey brand underwear model – recently ran into one another, Martinez tells Celebuzz.com, "We chatted about [Dancing"]. ... I thought he'd do pretty well on the show!"
Only not this season. "He said, 'Maybe in a year,' " said Martinez.

Katy Perry performed her first U.S. concert since splitting from hubby Russell Brand in Indianapolis, Ind., Saturday night, delivering a party-starting nine-song set for guests at the DIRECTV Super Saturday Night Hosted by Mark Cuban and Peyton Manning.
And the pop star seemed to have Super Bowl fever: Sporting a glittery, football-themed top and high-cut grey spandex shorts, Perry kicked off the show at 11:45 p.m. by bursting through a banner emblazoned with her name, just like a hometown gridiron hero.

Their poses aren't exactly Tebowing, but the Cirque du Soleil contortionists are impressive! They showed off their moves after meeting the Denver Broncos Quarterback backstage Wednesday night.
Tim Tebow checked out the 10 p.m. performance of "O" by Cirque du Soleil (his Cirque first!) at the Bellagio in Las Vegas with his brother and three friends, snacking on popcorn and Fiji water during the show.
The next night a very different kind of "idol" stopped by: Jennifer Lopez took a break from filming American Idol to catch the early show with Casper Smart on Thursday.

Karina Smirnoff may have a mirror-ball trophy and a dream job on Dancing with the Stars, but she still has a birthday wish.
"All I want for my birthday is for Tim Tebow to dance on Dancing with the Stars," she said Saturday, not long after Tebow and his Broncos team were ousted from the NFL playoffs by Tom Brady and his Patriots. "Tim is a very talented athlete, that was clear when we saw his performance this past season with Denver."
Celebrating her 34th birthday in Las Vegas, the newly single Dancing champ began at Sugar Factory and was joined briefly by fellow pro Mark Ballas, who had just finished up his duties as a judge at the Miss America pageant.
