Now that the shock has worn off, you may be wondering why Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is taking part in his own dating show.

Well, Kelce was on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” on Friday to talk about the show, called “Catching Kelce.” It will be shown later this year on the E! Network.

“It’s an opportunity I can’t pass up,” Kelce said. “It’ll be awesome to get my brand out there and just be able to show the world who I am, and on top of that having fun with some beautiful women.”

When asked if the show will be in the style of “The Bachelor,” Kelce played coy.

“Sort of,” Kelce said. “Kind of, I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag.”

The application to appear on the show (which has a deadline of Saturday) has some truly awful questions. Kelce was asked a bunch of those questions, including why he is single.

“I haven’t found the lucky lady yet,” Kelce said. “It’s not me. It’s definitely not me. It’s I haven’t found her yet.”

You can watch the interview, including what Chiefs coach Andy Reid thought of the Kelce’s venture into the world of entertainment:
