Kansas City Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce and his girlfriend Kayla Nicole are no strangers to the spotlight. The pair have both spent their fair share of time on-screen, with Kelce starring in both NFL games and McDonald’s commercials, and Nicole covering various sports events.
While most football fans know who Kelce is, if you’ve dabbled in reality TV you might recognize him from his dating show Catching Kelce on E! Ironically enough, Kelce met Nicole after breaking up with the “winner” of the show, Maya Benberry. In fact, they might have started dating shortly prior to his split from Benberry.
Though Benberry and Nicole have some similarities, as they both hail as influencers and models, Nicole seems to share more common ground with Kelce based on her journalistic background.
