E! is making its own version of The Bachelor with an NFL twist by drafting Kansas City Chiefs tight endTravis Kelce as its single man of choice. The network announced Thursday that it has ordered eight episodes of Catching Kelce, a reality series wherein the football star will date 50 eligible women, one from each state.
Kelce will ultimately decide who goes home at the end of each hour but the girls aren't powerless. They'll vote which of their competitors get to go on VIP dates with Kelce. They'll need to cultivate alliances to get more time with their football dream man or work together to throw weak links under the bus. You can imagine the cat fights already.
"On top of being a well-respected athlete, Travis has a fun-loving, over the top personality that draws people to him, and we are excited to give our viewers an up-close look at his search for love," said E!'s EVP of programming and development, Jeff Olde.
