Rachel Bird, Iowa girl, takes cardboard cutout of Tim Tebow to prom

Share

Rachel Bird, a senior at Kingsley-Pierson High School in Iowa, tweeted Tebow and asked if he’d be her prom date, she got no response. So she did what any girl would do — she got a life-sized cardboard cutout of Tebow and took that to the prom.

“He was a cheap date, and he didn’t talk much,” Bird joked. “And when I asked him to stand in a corner, he did. I don’t think it even hurt his feelings.”

Response? Cardboard Tebow was a huge hit.

Everyone laughed when Rachel Bird showed up at friend DeAndra Mahrt’s home for pre-prom pictures. Her classmates HAD to include Tebow in group photos.

Classmates convinced Bird to enter the gym as a “couple” at the grand march. She decided to do it. Announcer Scott Bahrke introduced her last. “Rachel Bird,” Bahrke said. “Escorted by Tim Tebow.”

“It was awkward, but people asked me to stop for photos during the grand march,” she said. “Believe me, this isn’t something I ever thought I’d be doing.”
