Tim Tebow, the former NFL quarterback turned MiLB player, recently switched playing fields when he stepped into Hollywood to produce a film and host a game show.
The Quarterback co-produced a film with his brother called “Finish the Race,” which will premiere in February 2019, and recently signed up to host “Million Dollar Mile.”
“Million Dollar Mile” will showcase contestants trying to complete a million to win $1 million, the only catch? The course is littered with elite athletes who have one mission: to stop the contestants from completing the mile.
Matt “Money” Smith and sports analyst Maria Taylor will co-host the show alongside Tebow for the 10-episodes which will be broadcasted on the CBS Television Network. The show is being produced by LeBron James and Maverick Carter, LeBron’s business manager.
“Watching good people compete at their highest ability is always inspirational to me. ‘Million Dollar Mile’ is a show that does just that — it motivates, thrills and is aspirational, and I’m excited to be hosting this show,” Tebow said.
Tebow can’t seem to stay busy enough. Aside from recently launching his book “This Is the Day: Reclaim Your Dream. Ignite Your Passion. Live Your Purpose,” he will also be returning to the New York Mets organization in 2019, making it his third season with the franchise.
Last season he played for the Double-A Binghamton team, but there is no current information on how the Mets organization will use him come spring.
