    Travis Kelce Confirmed As The New Host For Reality Game-Show ‘Are You Smarter Than A Celebrity?’

    NFL star Travis Kelce has gone well beyond his fame as a football star, especially since he started dating pop sensation Taylor Swift. While his prowess on the football field and in Taylor’s life is amply celebrated, the Chiefs’ tight end is now gearing up for an altogether new challenge. Kelce is set to step into the world of game shows, as he has been officially confirmed to be the host of the gameshow spinoff of ‘Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?’

    After his recent win at Super Bowl LVIII, the Kansas City Chiefs player will bring his charms to the exciting new game show, slated to stream on Prime Video. Kelce’s potential gig with the show was already anticipated as speculation about the same had surfaced back in March. However, it wasn’t until Tuesday that the series was officially confirmed in an announcement from the streaming platform.

    Produced by MGM Alternative, a division of Amazon MGM Studios, the show will be given a twist with an alternative title ‘Are You Smarter Than A Celebrity?‘. The show is set to reach audiences across more than 240 countries and territories. The release dates of the show are yet to be confirmed. However, it is expected to be available for streaming soon.
