Sorry shameless fame-whorish ladies ... Tim Tebow will not be the next rich stud hunting for love on "The Bachelor."

Tim just set the record straight on Twitter ... saying, "Haha rumors can be crazy! Even though I've watched the show before, I'm definitely not gonna be on the Bachelor. #JessePalmer."

But the most shocking part -- TMZ has learned who's to blame for the rumor ... and it's "Bachelor" host Chris Harrison. Though he swears it wasn't intentional.

Chris just called in to TMZ Live to explain himself ... check it out below.

Chris was using Tebow to get interest in the show.

I think he's quite handsome but the real turnoff is his religious zealotry. Those types frighten me.

Tebow's not stupid. Of, course Harrison would want him to do the show the ratings would go crazy. People that like Tebow would watch and people that don't like him would watch just to make fun of him. Athlete's that do these reality shows their athletic careers either go in the garbage or their careers were already in the garbage is why they're doing the reality show. Tebow wants to concentrate on football not on a reality show that he doesn't need to do. TMZ what does being on The Bachelor reality show have to do with losing your virginity?

Awww ... bummer. I'm sure all those horny, scheming women that go on those types of shows would be cat fighting like crazy to be "the one" who gets to "pop his cherry" and deflower him. It sure would be been "must see good TV" like they say in Hollywood.

Cause he's a gay closet case. Good for him for not faking the funk. But Taylor Swift is the go-to beard! Expect a fauxmance soon.

I'm glad Tebow set the record straight. Why would any sane person appear on a show like "The Bachelor". Big T do not need a trash show to find a honest and loving relationship. Way to go Tebow, don't devalue ur worth!!

I didn't think he would do it. Did anyone take that seriously other than gold-diggers?

Tebow can get any man or woman without appearing on "The Bachelor". The women on the show are all losers!! Way to go Big T!

Only famewhores would be on the bachelor. Disappointed that Tebow would even stoop to their level by watching that crap show.
