(NEW YORK) — Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow impressed football fans with his last-minute comebacks this past NFL season, and a new survey finds many Americans are so impressed, they want him as a fantasy celebrity friend.
A new survey commissioned by the social network Badoo finds 30 percent of respondents saying they would choose Tebow as the celebrity they most want to hang with, while 20 percent expressed a preference for George Clooney. Ten percent chose Brad Pitt, six percent selected Ryan Gosling, and four percent named Bradley Cooper. A small percentage — less than one percent — said they would prefer to hang out with Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.
Quality “Tebow Time” was the preference of 38 percent of all the men polled, while the women were split between Tebow and George Clooney, with each receiving 24 percent of the female vote.
