Tim Tebow sounds almost impossible when he says he "enjoys" the journey of his career. The former NFL quarterback, the Heisman Trophy winner, and the frequent media punching bag not only deal with the typical PR proverb: he's a man who is audibly convinced that it's always better to look ahead than back.
Suddenly he has many reasons to do just that. While his time as a professional footballer was short-lived and sometimes mocked, and he was not expected to hear much from him again, he turned a post-NFL analyst concert on ESPN into a surprisingly robust entertainment star – although this is not necessarily the case Surprise everyone, as he is of course charming in front of the camera. And he will not leave in the foreseeable future . He is hosting CBS's new, sparkling new reality show for athletic contests Million Dollar Mile (premiere on Wednesday), which was produced by LeBron James via Springhill Entertainment, the NBA stars' production company with Maverick Carter.
"I met LeBron as Bronco and he supported me there," said Tebow Men's Health before the premiere of the show's link.
Million Dollar Mile looks expensive and, to be honest, somehow ridiculous. With a seven-digit win on the line, the participants walk a mile through a neon-obstacle course as they are pursued by top athletes trying to break their dream of jackpot. Obstacles include scaling a 1
"It's crazy!" Tebow says about his new company in his shrill, raspy, I'm so pumped. "The biggest fear I had was losing my voice because I screamed so much and was hyped for the competitors.

After being traded to the jets by the Broncos, released and then released by both the Patriots and the Eagles, he pursued a baseball career beginning in 2016. And it turned out that he is damn good and solid results for the New York Mets supplies organization in the minor leagues. He recently missed his chance to switch to his major league team and was assigned to the Syracuse Mets instead. But the unsightly Christian, who is perhaps the most positive person in professional sports, is still "all-in" about his passion for play and promotion.
"I think it will be a great opportunity. It's one step away from the show, "he says of the finish. "I am improving every day."
Tebow also has a few exquisite words of wisdom for those who admire his ability to turn his perennial journey into a celebrity while still mastering his athletic ability despite his struggles. Regrettably regret is not one of them.
"I would say risk is failing," he says, becoming livelier than usual. "Failure is not the worst. If you talk to many great athletes, they have failed again and again, but that's why they succeed, because they keep going, they keep trying, they always give everything they have.

Not that you can do it or be in the Hall of Fame, but if you give everything you have, the regret you have is so much less than the regret you would have if you never got tired would.
