Tim Tebow Finishes Above Dalai Lama In Gallup Poll Of "Most Admired" Men

The polling giant Gallup released its list of the "Most Admired" men and women in America today, and unsurprisingly, President Barack Obama topped the list again in 2011. Other notable names in the mix this year included George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, the Pope, and... wait a second. Is that Tim Tebow?

Apparently so. Tebow finished "only a vote or two" outside the top 10 this year, according to USA Today. Behind the Denver Broncos' polarizing quarterback was none other than the Dalai Lama.

Tebow won seven of his first eight games as a starter this season, leading the Broncos from the brink of death back into contention for the AFC playoffs. He's drawn the adoration of millions, the hatred of millions more, and endless debate in the media throughout his whirlwind season at the helm in Denver.

But more admiration than the Dalai Lama? That's lofty.

Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton were followed by reverend Billy Graham and billionaire Warren Buffett in the top five. Secretary of state Hillary Clinton topped the list of America's most admired women.
