Dat­ing shows are get­ting an ath­letic jump­start with Catch­ing Kelce (2016cur­rent) from Travis Kelce. The 27-yearold pro­fes­sional Amer­i­can Foot­ball star is lac­ing up his train­ers and get­ting ready to tackle 50 beau­ti­ful ladies who are look­ing for their prince charm­ing – but will Travis be able to score a touch­down in the love depart­ment?

“I’m as ner­vous as they are,” says 1

Travis, who ad­mits that “play­ing in front of 50 000 scream­ing NFL fans is nowhere near as scary as this!”

He got his nick­name “Skid­marks” 2

in col­lege for his div­ing style of play, which would leave his white pants cov­ered in grass stains.

Keep­ing with the stop-start style 3

of the NFL, Travis gave the ladies just 60 sec­onds to im­press him in episode 1 on 19 Oc­to­ber, which he adds “was a good laugh. The one girl was do­ing lunges and frog-hop squats as she walked across the field to me”.

Travis has a bad-boy streak and he 4

has been sus­pended and fined in the past. In 2014 he was fined $12 000 (R170 000) for a lewd hand ges­ture to an op­pos­ing team’s coach.

The life of a pro­fes­sional ath­lete is 5

al­ways on the go thanks to tours, out-of-town matches and even be­ing traded, but it seems that Travis is happy in Kansas. He’s played for the Kansas City Chiefs since 2013 and in Jan­uary this year he signed a five-year con­tract ex­ten­sion that guar­an­tees him $46 mil­lion (R631 mil­lion) salary un­til 2020.

The one thing that Travis still isn’t 6

used to is cam­eras fol­low­ing him around off the field. “It’s strange when you’re on a date and some­one else is inches from your face with a cam­era when you’re kiss­ing!” he laughs.
