Travis Kelce in talks to host ‘Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?’


Travis Kelce is capitalizing on his newfound fame.

The Kansas City Chiefs star, 34, is reportedly in talks to host the reboot of “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?” which would stream via Amazon Prime Video.

Two insiders told Variety on Tuesday that the game show would feature celebrity guests rather than children.

Despite Kelce’s interest in the program, producers are hesitant to extend an offer over questions of his availability due to his contract with the Chiefs running until 2025.

Reps for Kelce did not immediately reply to Page Six’s request for comment.

The original show, hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, first aired on Fox in 2007 and ran for three seasons.

A revived version of the beloved game show then premiered on Nickelodeon in 2019 and was hosted by John Cena. However, it only lasted one season.

Even before his romance with Taylor Swift, the hunky NFL star has been trying to build his Hollywood portfolio.

The three-time Super Bowl champion, who signed with agency CAA to pursue his acting dreams, hosted “Saturday Night Live” last March and had his own reality dating show in 2016.

He also starred in over 375 nationwide commercials in the 2023 NFL season — which, according to the Wall Street Journal, is more than any other athlete or celebrity.

On top of that, Travis hosts “New Heights” with his brother, Jason, which has become the No. 1 Spotify podcast in the sports category.

Most recently, he earned his first executive producer credit for the film “My Dead Friend Zoe,” which debuted at the South by Southwest Film Festival this month.

Although there has been some concern about overexposure, Travis’ managers believe it’s all part of the plan.

“People say to me, ‘Man, it’s been a crazy year,’” Aaron Eanes told the New York Times in January 2024. “When I say, ‘Actually, it’s not that crazy,’ people look at me funny. It’s because it’s easy when you have a plan. We’re executing that plan.”

While Aaron and his twin brother, André Eanes, never planned on getting help from the most famous popstar in the world, they “positioned Travis to be world famous” from early on.

“We didn’t know how it would happen, or when it would happen, or what would help push that further along,” André Eanes said. “But it’s always been the thought in the back of our minds.”

According to the Eanes brothers, Kelce has dreamed of becoming as big as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson — a goal they’ve always believed he could achieve, starting with a potential new hosting gig.
