Tim Tebow, Peter Thiel to Speak at GOP Convention – But Not Tom Brady

Donald Trump will shake up the RNC format with a variety of speakers

Update 7/15/16 7:09 a.m.: Tim Tebow now denies he is speaking at the Republican National Convention.

Previously: Donald Trump has lined up a wide variety of speakers for the Republican National Convention, including everyone from anti-Gawker billionaire Peter Thiel to former college football legend Tim Tebow.

The 2016 RNC kick off on Monday in Cleveland, Ohio, and all four of Trump’s adult children will also speak at the event. The New York Times reported there would be presentations dedicated to Benghazi, Bill Clinton’s sexual history and a night focused on the economy and first reported the list of speakers.

The roster of speakers also includes professional golfer Natalie Gulbis, Trump’s wife Melania Trump, UFC president Dana White, former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani, actress Kimberlin Brown, actor Antonio Sabato Jr., real estate mogul Thomas J. Barrack Jr. and Pam Bondi, the Florida attorney general who was recently grilled by CNN’s Anderson Cooper following the Orlando nightclub massacre.

Newt Gingrich is listed as a speaker, and there’s an additional speaker slot for “the nominee for vice president” — whom Trump is expected to name on Friday. The roster doesn’t include Indiana Governor Mike Pence, who has been reported as a finalist for the VP slot along with Gingrich.

Several prominent females will also speak on Trump’s behalf, including Eileen Collins, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee and Iowa Senator Joni Ernst.

Other speakers include House Speaker Paul Ryan Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Ben Carson and former Trump rival Ted Cruz.

The final night of the convention should be a doozy, as the Times notes that Thiel, Tebow, Ivanka Trump, RNC chairman Reince Priebus and Donald Trump are scheduled to take the podium.

While things can obviously change, it is notable that early Trump supporter Sarah Palin is not on the list. Sports icons Tom Brady, Mike Tyson, Bobby Knight and Don King, who have also been rumored, are also not part of the initial lineup.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
