Tim Tebow is taking on hosting duties for the second season of Fox’s “Home Free,” and it is about more than just a job.

According to the Heisman-Trophy-winner-turned-motivational speaker, joining the home building competition allows the Christian athlete to highlight those who are changing lives.

“This show is filled with skill, will, strategy, competiveness, heart, so many amazing things. But I think the best thing that it’s bigger than the contestants,” Tebow said in an MRCTV report from Fox31 Denver. “They’re playing for something bigger than themselves and I think that’s pretty important. Just the selflessness of people to be able to change lives is pretty awesome.”

Tebow will join host Mike Holmes on the June 16 premiere of the Fox program where 11 contestants will build 11 houses to create the brand new neighborhood of Home Free Boulevard. While the contestants will be vying for $100,000, they are also working hard to win their personal hero a dream home.

“Every single one of them will get a home. You understand that each of them are playing for their personal heroes who have done amazing things,” Tebow explained. “One of our contestants was a war hero in Afghanistan and got blown up and the man he’s playing for was the person who came back in battle and picked him up and carried him off the battlefield and saved his life.”

He went on to explain why the featured heros deserved the houses that were being built for them.

“Another one of our contestants is playing for a woman who randomly donated her kidney to his father when he was on dialysis…They really are real life heroes and they deserve to be celebrated,” he said.

Aside from joining the homebuilding competition, Tebow is gearing up to release his second book October 25, titled, Shaken: Discovering Your True Identity in the Midst of Life’s Storms. In the book, the NFL hopeful will reveal some of the disappointments that came from his short-lived NFL career.

“First, he was a beloved college football champion, media sensation, and best-selling author drafted in the first round of the 2010 Draft. Then he had a miracle playoff run with the Denver Broncos before being traded to the New York Jets,” a description of the book on the Penguin Random House website states. “After one season he was cut by New York, next signed by the New England Patriots, then let go after training camp. Tim Tebow has achieved big victories and plunged the depths of failure, all while holding firm to his faith.”

The description goes on to reveal how Tebow plans to get personal about some of the most challenging moments in his life.

“In Shaken he explains why neither the highs nor the lows of his life can define him—and he reveals how you, too, can find an unshakable identity and purpose,” according to the description. “In revealing passages, Tebow pulls back the curtain on his life, sharing the vulnerable moments of his career that have shaken him to his core—while also teaching the biblical principles that will enable you to keep the faith, no matter what comes your way.”

    Great Stuff !!!!

    I also enjoyed David’s link – very positive and inspiring.

    Been away for awhile – any NFL players sent to the Big House lately?

    Stan Kroenke, the owner of the Rams and various other sports franchises like the Arsenal soccer club commented recently on his thoughts regarding sports ownership that was quite telling and likely reflects views by his good friend Jerry Jones and other owners. These quotes stand out:

    Stan Kroenke: “I didn’t buy Arsenal stake to win trophies”


    “If you want to win championships then you would never get involved. I think the best owners in sports are the guys that sort of watch both sides a bit.”

    This naturally infuriated the Arsenal fan base as they pay some of the highest ticket prices in England’s soccer leagues.

    How does this relate to Tebow?

    Well, a lot.

    You see, one of the arguments we make here is the ability for Tim to be the difference maker, aka A WINNER!

    If Kroenke’s comments reflect the majority of owners (which from the outside looking in is certainly plausible) then it is obvious to the trained eye that NFL owners do not care about winning but maintaining the status quo and keep the money rolling in.

    Take a look at Dallas for instance. Tony Romo probably has a loyal fan base which is why Jerry Jones continues to sign him to ridiculous contracts which yields very little in return. But it keeps the merchandise flowing and the very notion that “This is the year” keeps the Cowboy faithful coming back for more and perpetually disappointed at the end of the year.

    Jerry Jones doesn’t care about winning, or winning just enough to keep the fans interested. He like Kroenke believe that NFL ownership is just an end to justify the bigger picture, like real estate projects, etc.

    It’s easy to see this in Jacksonville with Bortles. Extremely popular with the fanboys and they just don’t care that Bortles just stinks, much like Romo.

    So, in short, it’s an interesting theory how this impacts Tebow. Why alienate your fan base by taking a chance on a winner by signing Tebow when the fan base is happy with the illusion that the team is “doing its best” to build a winner when its obvious to many owners like Kroenke and Jones that they’re not in it to win championships.

      The NFL is simply not a competitive entity. Rather, it’s akin to a monopoly. There is nothing from outside the league that can threaten to win a championship or claim superiority, and so the 32 teams mill around contentedly.

    • ck says:

      Yes, Danny, and what a racket it is w/lots of suckers too!:( They obviously don’t want to WIN b/c then the fans would have a field day & RULE…all about CONTROL VIA PC!!!
