Kelce, 26, did have a strong season for the Chiefs, catching 72 passes for 875 yards and five touchdowns, all of which ranked second among Kansas City receivers in 2015.
He will now also rank first among Chiefs players in reality TV dating competitions.
At some point, an announcer or host will probably say “the claws come out.” Or since a football player is involved, there will surely be a few “unnecessary roughness” and “unsportsmanlike conduct” cracks. And maybe, just maybe, some of his Chiefs teammates will help his decision-making along the way.
Actually, tracking football puns used throughout the show could make for strong drinking game material. Hopefully, one of the eight episodes will be an “after the final rose” type of show with Jesse Palmer (star of season five) sitting alongside his fellow football player/reality dating show star to offer a sympathetic ear. But Kelce might need someone to have his back at some point.
