It appears Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce will further his budding career off the football field.

Kelce is in discussions to host a celebrity-focused reboot of Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader? on Amazon Prime Video, according to Brian Steinberg of Variety. The new version of the show would include celebrity guests instead of children.

However, “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,” Steinberg added.

Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader? first appeared on Fox for three seasons beginning in 2007. It returned to Fox for a fourth season after moving to syndication and eventually migrated to a version on Nickelodeon, which was hosted by John Cena.

If Kelce signs on for the project, it would be the latest off-field venture for the superstar tight end.

Kelce has hosted Saturday Night Live, starred in the reality series Catching Kelce and now hosts a podcast with his brother, former Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, dubbed New Heights.

Kelce is coming off his third Super Bowl win with the Chiefs and is set to enter his 12th season with the franchise in 2024. He’ll be looking to add another Super Bowl ring to his collection when Kansas City hits the field in the fall.
