How old is Tim Tebow?

Timothy Richard Tebow was born on Aug. 14, 1987 to Pamela and Robert Ramsey Tebow II in Makati, Philippines, where his parents were missionaries.

Tebow has four siblings and when he was 3 years old, his family moved to Jacksonville, Florida. The children were home-schooled by their mother who instilled Christian beliefs and values in them.

In 2006, Tebow received an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Florida where he became a successful quarterback. After winning national championships in college, he was drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2010.

Early in the 2011 season when the Broncos were struggling, Tebow replaced Kyle Orton. The young quarterback led a team with a losing record that was going nowhere to the playoffs and won a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Following that season though, he was traded to the New York Jets and within a few years was out of the NFL.

As for the new CBS show he’s hosting, contestants compete for the $1 million prize by racing through a mile-long obstacle course in which they’ll have to climb, jump, swim, and swing along the way. Sound familiar? Many are already comparing it to American Ninja Warrior.

Not only do the show’s contestants have to tackle the challenges of the course but they also have to go up against a group of elite athletes who want to stop them from finishing the competition. So it has an American Gladiators vibe as well.

Who is Tebows’ fiancée?

In January 2019, the former quarterback announced on Instagram that he proposed to his girlfriend, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, and she happily accepted.

He posted three photos of the pair and captioned it: “Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world. You’re the love of my life, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.”

Nel-Peters is from Sedgefield, South Africa, and attended North-West University where she earned her bachelor’s degree in business management. She also modeled part-time and in 2017 won the Miss Universe competition, becoming only the second woman from her country to do so.

What is Tebow’s net worth?

While Tebow’s NFL career may not have turned out the way he had hoped he did find success outside of football.

In 2013, he was hired by ESPN as a college football analyst, appearing primarily on the SEC Network. Tebow has also worked as a contributor on Good Morning America and served as executive producer for the film Run the Race. But he never gave up his dream of playing professional sports and today is a baseball outfielder in the New York Mets organization. 

In 2016, some publications noted that Tebow’s net worth was at $4 million, however, more recently it’s been reported that his net worth is closer to $10 million.
