Kansas City Chiefs Tight End Travis Kelce to Host Saturday Night Live

The Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl champions, and one of their stars intends to make the most of his heightened profile. Satruday Night Live announced that Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce will host their March 4th episode.

An eight-time Pro Bowler and two-time Super Bowl champion, Kelce is one of the league's biggest stars and the rare NFL player to serve as host on the comedy institution. He'll become only the second non-quarterback this century with the honors, following defensive lineman J.J. Watt's appearance in 2020.

Besides being a gregarious and engaging on field presence, Kelce has an unusual amount of on screen experience for a football player. In 2016, he starred in a reality dating competition called Catching Kelce, where 50 women from 50 states vied for his affections. The show ran for eight episodes and didn't earn a second season. Kelce remains a bachelor.
