Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce to star in dating reality show
Just what the world needs — another dating-based reality show.
Move over “Bachelor” and “Dating Naked”, “Catching Kelce” is coming later this year to E!
Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce will be the “prize” on the program as 50 eligible women (one from each state) try to win his affection.
“On top of being a well-respected athlete, Travis has a fun-loving, over the top personality that draws people to him, and we are excited to give our viewers an up-close look at his search for love,” said Jeff Olde, EVP, Programming and Development, E!.
The series will also have a twist, according to Deadline Hollywood:
While Kelce will be deciding who stays in the house and who is sent home along the way, the women are able to strategically decide who is attending the all-important group dates. The debate becomes: do you pick your friends and keep those loyalties strong, or choose the “weakest” contenders to make yourself stand out? Lines will be drawn and friendships will be tested as the women pick and choose who gets the extra time with this football superstar.
Kelce, 26, just finished up his third year in the NFL and finished with 72 catches, which tied for eighth-most among NFL tight ends.
The network has ordered eight episodes of the series.
