The game, which can’t be named here, presents the contestant with the names of three people.

The contestant is asked to choose which one to marry, which one to “have a roll in the hay with,” and which one to kill.

Gronkowski’s choices: Betty White, Jets head coach Rex Ryan, and Ryan’s new quarterback, Tim Tebow.

“I would ‘F’ Tebow, to take his virginity,” Gronk told the audience.

That grew a big laugh from the crowd, although it’s not clear who the Pats tight end chose for the other two options.

It was all meant in good fun, but Gronk’s response will likely draw plenty of criticism.
