Travis Kelce will host a game show on Amazon!

As the saying goes, you’ve got to strike while the irons hot. That’s why after winning a bunch of Super Bowls, having a mega hit podcast and dating the most famous singer in the world, Travis Kelce is putting his handsome mug on TV. Lucky are those who have bet on him during the Super Bowl on sites like betend.

Trav will host an upcoming game show called “Are You Smarter Than a Celebrity?” Amazon MGM Studios announced last night. 

The new series — a spinoff of the funny quiz show “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” — will air its first 20-episode season on Prime Video. 

“Are You Smarter Than a Celebrity?” will be an updated version of the original game, which debuted on Fox in 2007. In each episode of Kelce’s show, viewers will meet an adult contestant who will use the help of a group of celebrities to answer 11 questions, the press release explained. The questions will come from a variety of elementary-level subjects. 

Travis said he’s excited about the move. “I grew up loving game shows, and I’m excited to be following in the footsteps of so many TV icons by hosting my very first one with ‘Are you Smarter than a Celebrity,’” the three-time Super Bowl winner said. “The original show is a great success, so to be bringing a new format with everyone’s favorite celebrities to the screen, will definitely be entertaining. I’m just happy to be on the hosting side of the equation here and excited to see how these famous faces keep up.”
