What's the story?
CATCHING KELCE is a reality dating competition featuring an NFL player looking for love. Kansas City Chief tight end Travis Kelce is looking for a woman that can fit into his lifestyle, which includes being in the spotlight, getting along with his teammates and their wives, and of course, playing professional football. He's decided to move from the club and bar scene to Los Angeles during his off-season to meet a group of 50 women from 50 states from which to choose his soul mate. After an initial elimination round, the remaining women are moved into a mansion and participate in activities that include red carpet events, promotional shoots, and luxury dates. As the football player cuts candidates from his dating roster, he hopes to be left with the one woman who is right for him.
Is it any good?
This silly series offers viewers a reality dating competition that doesn't try too hard to be romantic or sophisticated. The enthusiastic host seems more interested in grabbing the limelight for himself than actually looking for a partner. Adding to this are some of the more ridiculous cast members, some of whom become extremely emotional after being sure that Kelce connected with them after only 10 seconds of seeing them from afar.
Catching Kelce is not trying to be The Bachelor, and it capitalizes on all the expected fighting, sexual innuendo, and drinking that fans of these types shows come to expect. It also succeeds at promoting sexist stereotypes about women desperately trying to secure a man. But even during what are supposed to be sincere moments, it's hard to believe that any of this is meant to be taken seriously.
