Travis Kelce is looking for love. The NFL tight end from the Kansas City Chiefs has a new reality show called Catching Kelce. The show is like The Bachelor but the twist on this E! show is that Travis is picking from 50 different women from all 50 states with the hope of finding that special one.
The first episode introduces us to Travis Kelce, the man. First impression is that he is a total goofball and kind of looks like Jason Sudeikis but on steroids. He is always making jokes and dancing around, it’s almost adorable but then it falls into some serious bro territory. He can’t really dance though. His moves are more acceptable for the end zone than the night club.
I can’t believe Kelce agreed to go on a show where he is forced to date 50 women. What courage. I hope he doesn’t sleep with all 50 of women because statistics state the only thing Kelce will be catching is an STD. And speaking of the contestants, they all seem very aware of Travis’ recent contract extension that netted him over $46 million dollars. The show flashes some epic looking showdowns between the women. This is obviously the real drama.
Another point of interest is a contestant named Avery. She is smart, pretty and knows football. Her father happens to be Mark Schlereth. Who played for both Washington and Denver as a guard on the offensive line. Schlereth has 3 Super Bowl rings and is a current ESPN analyst on NFL Live. He also said that he would kill Kelce if he disrespected his daughter. So maybe that happens in a future episode.
The pilot ends with a series preview where big dramatic moments are highlighted from the upcoming season. Kisses, fights, dates and plenty of gossip, all in beautiful Los Angeles, California. Then they show us our boy, Travis Kelce, and he is really upset because he has to say goodbye to some of the women. Like it never dawned on him before that moment that he was going to have to do more than just make out with 50 hot chicks. He’s so naive, it’s cute.
I don’t normally dig shows like this but I love that this young NFL star is building his brand and honestly looking for some real companionship. Can’t blame him for either of those things. I’ll keep watching if only to see Mark Schlereth choke Kelce out. Get caught up so we can talk about this show together at work.
Will you take this rose?
