Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce’s IMDB page could one day rival his Pro Football Reference page.

Kelce, who was host of “Saturday Night Live” a year ago, has added executive producer of a feature movie to his résumé. Now there’s a chance he could be a game-show host in the future.

Variety reported a “celebrity-focused reboot” of “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” is in the planning stages. It would stream on Amazon Prime, and Kelce is in discussions to be host of the show, Variety said.

“There are some questions, according to the people familiar with discussions, about how much of a commitment Kelce could make to the venture if he continues playing football,” Variety reported.

“The new version of the program, originally hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy and appearing on Fox’s broadcast network, would rely on celebrity guests rather than children, according to these people.”


“Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?” debuted in 2007 on Fox. This is a description of the show from Paramount Plus: “Brainy youngsters help adult contestants with questions taken from an elementary school curriculum.”

The show aired for four seasons on Fox before going off the air for three years. It was on briefly again in 2015, then moved to Nickelodeon in 2019 and former professional wrestler John Cena was the host.

Kelce, 34, signed with the Creative Artists Agency last summer following his “SNL” appearance.

“When Travis joined the NFL as a rookie, it was clear to us that he had star potential both on and off the field. We have a shared vision of Travis not only as a transcendent athlete, but also as a media and entertainment powerhouse,” his managers Aaron and André Eanes told the Hollywood Reporter at that time. “We believe the talented CAA team will bring that vision to life and we’re excited to embark on this journey together.”

According to Spotrac, Kelce’s contract with the Chiefs runs through the 2025 season, but athletes have been known to hang up their cleats early.

However, after the Chiefs won Super Bowl LVIII, Kelce was asked by reporters if he would be back for the 2024 season.

“Hell yeah,” he said. “I want that three-peat.”
