"Never thought I would fall victim to Tim Tebow's charms. To think all it took was a Met Ball appearance and a Ralph Lauren Purple Label tux," one Twitter user said.
"Tim Tebow looks freakin gorgeouss in a tux!!" a user with the nickname Samantha tweeted.
Another female user raved: "Looking at pics from the Met Gala, Tim Tebow sure is handsome. I had never noticed before, apparently he just needed a tux to win me over,"
In an interview at the red carpet broadcast live on the web through Amazon's website, Tebow opened up about his excitement for the event.
"I'm just so blessed to be here," Tebow told Vogue's William Norwich on the red carpet.
Whe asked if he had prayed before arriving at the event Tebow replied smiling "I pray every day."
Tebow also said he was excited to meet Anna Wintour - Vogue's Editor and the organizer of the event-, and planned to open with: "Nice to meet you?" according to the Hollywood Reporter.
When asked about his personal style sense, he said he was not sure if he has it.
"I don't know. I consider myself to be blessed with good people around me that most of the time give me good advice," the HR reported.
"I'm excited to see who's gonna be here and you never know! That's what's exciting about it," he added.
This is the first time Tebow attended a Met Gala, considered the fashion event of the year.
