Travis Kelce is capitalizing on his newfound fame.

The 34-year-old Kansas City Chiefs star is reportedly in talks to host the reboot of “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?” which would be streamed via Amazon Prime Video.

Two insiders Variety said on Tuesday that the game show would feature celebrity guests rather than children.

Despite Kelce’s interest in the program, producers are hesitant to extend an offer due to questions about his availability since his contract with the Chiefs runs through 2025.

Representatives for Kelce did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

The original show, hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, first aired on Fox in 2007 and ran for three seasons.

A revived version of the popular game show then premiered on Nickelodeon in 2019 and was hosted by John Cena. However, it only lasted one season.

Even before his romance with Taylor Swift, the handsome NFL star was trying to build his Hollywood portfolio.

The three-time Super Bowl champion, who signed with the CAA agency to pursue his acting dreams, hosted “Saturday Night Live” last March and had his own reality dating show in 2016.

He also appeared in over 375 national commercials during the 2023 NFL season – which is loud to the Wall Street JournalHe is more than any other athlete or celebrity.

Most recently, he received his first award as executive producer for the film “My Dead Friend Zoe,” which premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival this month.

Although there have been some concerns about overexposure, Travis’ managers believe it’s all part of the plan.

“People say to me, ‘Man, it’s been a crazy year,'” Aaron Eanes told the New York Times in January 2024. “When I say, ‘Actually, it’s not that crazy,’ people look at me funny. That’s because it’s easy when you have a plan. We are implementing this plan.”

While Aaron and his twin brother André Eanes never intended to get help from the world’s most famous pop star, they “positioned Travis as world famous early on.”

“We didn’t know how it was going to happen, when it was going to happen or what was going to help move this forward,” André Eanes said. “But it was always the thought in the back of my mind.”

According to the Eanes brothers, Kelce dreams of becoming as big as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson – a goal they’ve always believed he could achieve, starting with a possible new hosting gig.
