For Pete's Sake

‘Catching Kelce,’ dating show starring Chiefs tight end, will hit the airwaves Oct. 5

The Chiefs’ bye week this fall is Oct. 9, but you won’t have to wait two weeks to see at least one team member.

Tight end Travis Kelce’s dating show “Catching Kelce,” will debut on Oct. 5 on the E! Network. According to a news release, Kelce is “trying a whole new offense when it comes to the game of love! Fifty eligible women, including former WAGS (wives and girlfriends of sports stars), sports royalty, social media stars, entrepreneurs, hometown sweethearts and fitness models from across the United States, will be invited to Los Angeles as this fun-loving athlete searches for that special someone to become his lifelong ‘teammate.’ 

The news release says Kelce will have help with his “choice.” Older brother Jason Kelce, who is with the Eagles, will join Kelce and so will his manager, Aaron Eanes.

This is Kelce’s brother:

The first episode will show each of the 50 women (it was supposed to be one from each state) making a 60-second pitch to stay on the show.

From the release: “From there, Travis will have to quickly narrow the dating pool from 50 women down to 20 before they are able to move into their lavish Los Angeles mansion. Once moved in, Travis and his boys will be deciding who stays in the house and who is sent home packing. However, there’s a twist; in each episode, Travis will pick one girl who goes on the all-access group date and it’s her decision to strategically choose which other girls will go on the date with her. At the end of the group date, Travis decides who he wants to take on the coveted VIP date.”

At the end of each episode, Kelce will kick some of the women off the show.

Here are a couple of Instagram poss that apparently are an inside look at the show:
