Travis Kelce

Travis Kelce is reportedly expanding his career as a host!

In March, it was reported that the Super Bowl champion—who co-hosts the New Heights podcast with his brother Jason Kelce and made his Saturday Night Live hosting debut in March of 2023—was in talks to host a reboot of the game show Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?

"I’ve been fortunate to do a few things outside of the sports world that I’ve been enjoying doing, like getting on camera," the Kansas City Chiefs football player said this past January. "The SNL stuff kind of opened up a new happiness and maybe a new career path for me, but it’s funny for me to even say that at this point in my career because I think it’s so much further down the road than it is right now."

Following his SNL debut, Travis signed with Creative Artists Agency for off-field representation. At the time, the NFL star's managers Aaron and André Eanes told The Hollywood Reporter, "When Travis joined the NFL as a rookie, it was clear to us that he had star potential both on and off the field. We have a shared vision of Travis not only as a transcendent athlete, but also as a media and entertainment powerhouse," adding, "We believe the talented CAA team will bring that vision to life and we’re excited to embark on this journey together."
