If things don't work out with Taylor Swift, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow may have better luck with 25 lucky ladies on "The Bachelor."

Host Chris Harrison appeared Monday on Access Hollywood Live, where he revealed he'd recently approached the NFL player, 24, to star in the ABC reality series.

"I think he'd be a great Bachelor," Harrison explained. "Don't you?"

Though the devoutly Christian athlete "did say yes, he would never do it," Harrison explained. "He has a little job called quarterback in the NFL. At least for another year!"

If Tebow were to ever seriously consider joining the show, he wouldn't be the first famous face to search for love on camera: actor Charlie O'Connell courted more than two dozen eligible singles on "The Bachelor" in 2005. Former quarterback Jesse Palmer was also on the show.
