Beating out President Barack Obama, Lady Gaga and Big Bird, New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow was voted by Americans in a Nielsen poll as the guest they'd most prefer to have seated with them at a Thanksgiving dinner table, according to a report from The New York Post:

The survey, released today by Destination America, shows that 23 percent of people in the United States said they would prefer the Jets backup to the Commander in Chief, who only garnered five percent of the vote.

Lady Gaga and Big Bird also received more votes than Obama.
