Travis Kelce is adding game show host to his ever-growing list of titles.

State of play: Taylor Swift's boyfriend — who also happens to be the reigning Super Bowl champion tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs — will host "Are You Smarter than a Celebrity?" on Prime Video, Amazon announced today.

  • The streaming service described the 20-episode series as a "spinoff" of the game show "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?"
  • Adult contestants will try to answer 11 questions "pulled from elementary curriculum," with the option to take advice from (or ignore) a classroom full of celebrities.

💭 Nathan's thought bubble: The 34-year-old Kelce's football career might not last much longer, but it looks like he'll be on our screens for a long time to come.
