Tim Tebow is getting his own E! treatment. He’s getting his own special named, Tim Tebow’s Wild Rise. The special will follow Tim’s rise as an athlete, “Tebowing,” his virginity, and how he became part of pop culture. The special will feature interviews from his friends, his former high school and college coaches, and everyone else under the sun. The release didn’t mention any interviews with him…which is the one we’d all like to see. Actually, screw the interview, I’d like to see him hooked up to a lie detector machine.
I love that E! is getting in the business of sports. It’s because the mystery of Tebow brings in ratings, and we all know that E! loves exploitation. In a way, E! has almost become a sports adjacent reality network with Lamar Odom, Hank Baskett, and Kris Humphries. All we need now is for Tim to marry some slut that will agree to a reality series so they can get Tebow under their umbrella.
The special is set to air July 2nd at 8:00 PM ET/PT on E!
