You’ll have something to watch during the Kansas City Chiefs bye week this year. Travis Kelce’s new reality show, Catching Kelce, will premiere on E! on Wednesday, October 5 at 8 p.m. (Arrowhead Time), according to a press release. The first episode is 90 minutes and will include Kelce’s brother Jason (center for the Eagles) and his manager.
In the supersized premiere episode, 50 eligible women will assemble at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum where they will have only 60 seconds to make a lasting first impression on one of the NFL’s most sought after bachelors. 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. The debate becomes: do you pick your friends and keep those loyalties strong, or choose the “weakest” contenders to make yourself stand out? Lines will be drawn and newly formed friendships will be tested as the women pick and choose who gets the extra time with this quirky, fun-loving football superstar. At the end of each episode, Travis will have to eliminate some of the girls and send them back to their home states.
The show filmed this offseason and he did pick a winner. So, there you have it. I’ll probably be watching. At least some of it.
