Tebow makes appearance, although late, on The Apprentice

I spent last night watching the Penguins blow a 1-0 lead to the Senators on NBC Sports Network, before eventually losing in double overtime.  The game-tying goal came with 28.6 seconds to play.

Over on the parent network, Tim Tebow showed up after the clock expired.

For the season finale of Donald Trump’s The All-Star Celebrity Apprentice on NBC, Tebow arrived at the final task with a check for $100,000, which went to finalist Trace Adkins’ charity.  But Tebow got there after the deadline for gathering funds, so Adkins didn’t get credit for the money.

Adkins still raised more than fellow finalist Penn Gillette, and Adkins ultimately was named The All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, a title that as far as we can tell is meaningless.  Like Vice President of the United States.

It’s unclear when the segment including Tebow’s appearance was taped, and whether the money came from his pocket, his foundation, or elsewhere.

It was clear that Tebow showed up with $100,000 less than expected.  Adkins said multiple times that Tebow was coming with $200,000.

Regardless, it was a generous contribution, which will go to the American Red Cross.  And it possibly gives Tebow an opening to join the show for its next season, since he quite possibly won’t be otherwise occupied.

    As a Tebow fan, it saddens me that it has come to this.

    32 QBs in the league.

    There aren’t 32 QBs who can win more games then Tebow.

    It’s not surprising that someone who prays so conspicuously would also be showy about charitable giving; two acts of grandstanding that are strongly frowned upon in the Bible

    Lil Jon was robbed. Adkins never should have been in the final two– dude mailed in the previous 3 tasks.

    Does Tebow really need to hear “You’re Fired” again???

    Yes presiding of the senate and being able to cast the vote that breaks a stalemate = meaningless. To today’s dumbed down public it might.

    Ah yes. Another, “I dislike football players so I’ll ridicule them any chance I get” post.

    Here’s another one from the Bible:
    “”You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”

    Tebow is a Christian. He was probably audited on the way with the check. It would explain both his tardiness and the fact it was half of what was expected.

    It would be funny if it wasn’t entirely possible that Tebow has been illegally harassed as it has been proven many other conservative organizations have.

    All Tebow does is win games? Yeah, so does Vince Young.

    Why anyone would want to go on the-worlds-biggest-hypocrite’s (Trump) show baffles me. You couldn’t pay me or any charity I may represent enough.

    When the circus leaves one town, rest assured it will be pitching its tents in another by nightfall.
