“I grew up loving game shows, and I’m excited to be following in the footsteps of so many TV icons by hosting my very first one with Are You Smarter Than a Celebrity?

Travis Takes A Big Pay Cut

It seems Travis Kelce took a big pay cut when signing his contract.

“The deal is for two seasons and there’s an option for the third and more if the money is good, he is also working on being one of the producers of the show. He could have commanded a lot more, but he doesn’t care because he loves the show and is excited to host, It’s filming in Los Angeles, so he’ll be working out his schedule. He’ll also be in Europe a lot this summer with Taylor and their families around the Eras tour dates but he’s committed to the project.”

This is due to his signing the contract before his relationship with Taylor Swift became public. The popularity his relationship has brought would have made the paycheck bigger.
