Travis Kelce to host Prime Video game show Are You Smarter Than A Celebrity?

Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl winner Travis Kelce has been named as the host of a new game show called Are You Smarter Than A Celebrity? for Prime Video.

Filming for the 20-episode season has already been completed.

The premise is a twist on Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?, which debuted on Fox in 2007 and was hosted by Jeff Foxworthy.

It also aired in syndication.

John Cena hosted a 2019 revival for Nickelodeon.

In Kelce’s show, an adult contestant will be given 11 elementary-level questions where they can ask a classroom of various celebrities for help answering.

The final question is from the 6th grade curriculum and is worth 100,000 dollars (£80,400).

Only one celebrity is allowed to talk through the answer to the last question with the contestant.

NFL star Kelce, who is dating music superstar Taylor Swift, said in a statement he grew up watching game shows and is “excited to be following in the footsteps of so many TV icons”.

This is not Kelce’s first TV gig.

He starred in his own 2016 dating competition show for E! called Catching Kelce and hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live last year.
