When Taylor Swift made her grand appearance at the Country Music Awards Sunday night, she received the biggest award of the night, and took home her second consecutive “Entertainer of the Year” award. What Swift was not anticipating was the on-going joke between hosts Blake Shelton and Reba McEntire about her dating Tim Tebow, leaving Swift shocked and baffled.
As the hosts mentioned the NFL quarterback they quickly brought up Swift, and McEntire said, “Well, how about the rumor that Tim Tebow went on a date with Taylor Swift?” Shelton added in, “Now we know what he has been praying for.” As the cameras zoomed in on Swift, she gave a startled reaction that practically confirmed the two were an item. Swift, with a shocked look on her face, merely shrugged her shoulders, and remarked, “What?” then put her head down as she attempted to laugh at the joke.
Rumors and gossip have been swirling about the two stars dating ever since they went on a date in February.
Viewers that tuned in to watch the Country Music Awards quickly turned to their Twitter accounts to remark on Swift’s reaction. One individual tweeted, “Taylor Swift looked extra salty after that Tim Tebow joke, ha,” while another Twitter fan wrote, “Oh T-Swift you’re just too cute.
And you so just confirmed that date with Tebow.” Another fan was not so fond of Shelton and McEntire’s wise-cracks stating, “He was making fun of Tim Tebow and Taylor Swift. It was just rude.”
Overall, Swift, a country music superstar, seemed to handle the situation as best to her ability and kept her head up. Later in the evening she presented Shelton with the award for ‘Male Vocalist of the Year.’
Yet the real question remains: are Tebow and Swift dating? Or is Hollywood sensationalizing a single date into a full-blown romance? Several relationship experts speak out about why the two young stars could be the next “it” couple. Experts tuned in to the two regarding several aspects including their levels of fame, personality, attractiveness and religion.
Cooper Lawrence, radio personality and author of “Been There, Done That, Kept the Jewelry,” believes that “Swift and Tebow have found untold amounts of fame at incredibly young ages.”
Which is a factor that could bring the two closer together. Andrea Syrtash, relationship expert and author of “He’s Just Not Your Type (And That’s a Good Thing)” says, “Tebow and Swift were raised with Christian and strong family values. The fact that they are around the same age and both came into the public eye as teenagers also makes it more likely that they understand each other.”
As of now the two are not yet confirmed as a couple, and it seems that many fans of the beloved stars are rooting for them.
