In an unexpected twist of celebrity matchmaking, former Dancing With The Stars host Erin Andrews has apparently played a role in the connection between Taylor Swift and Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce. The story behind this intriguing pairing begins with a podcast episode featuring Andrews and her colleague Charissa Thompson, and it has since captured the attention of fans.
Travis Kelce Says He “Owes” Erin Andrews For Telling Taylor Swift to Date Him
The revelation came to light during an episode of their podcast, Calm Down with Erin and Charissa, originally aired in early August and reposted recently. Andrews took a playful and enthusiastic approach in suggesting that Swift should consider dating the 33-year-old tight end from the Kansas City Chiefs.
“Taylor, I don’t know what you are doing in your life right now besides rocking the world. Please try our friend Travis. He is fantastic,” Andrews said. “This is one Taylor, I know we’re not the best of friends, we’re not even friends, but I consider you one. Take us up on this. Go on a date with this guy. Do it for America.”
Her podcast partner, Thompson, readily supported the idea. The unexpected endorsement from Andrews and Thompson caught the attention of Kelce, who responded to the clip on Instagram with a heartfelt message.
“You two are something else!! I owe you big time!!” Kelce wrote.
The heartfelt response from Kelce resonated with fans and added an element of charm to this unexpected turn of events. Andrews proved that even in the glamorous realm of Hollywood and professional sports, sometimes all it takes is a friendly nudge from unexpected allies to set the stage for a budding romance.
Travis Kelce, Taylor Swift are Still Getting to Know Each Other
This intriguing development in Kelce’s love life began in July when he publicly expressed his interest in Swift. After attending one of Swift’s Eras Tour concerts in Kansas City, Kelce shared his experience on his podcast, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce.
He spoke about the excitement of wanting to meet Swift in person and even exchange phone numbers. The key to his plan was the tradition of friendship bracelets that Swift offers at her concerts, and Kelce had hoped to give her one with his phone number on it. However, his plan was foiled as Swift doesn’t typically engage with fans before or after her shows.
Despite the initial disappointment, Kelce’s path eventually crossed with Swift’s. Swift attended Chiefs games in Kansas City, and the two were spotted together at an after-party. Their most recent public appearance was at the Chiefs-Jets game in New Jersey on a Sunday. Though their relationship is still in the early stages, sources indicate that they are “still just getting to know each other,” emphasizing that their connection is “nothing too serious.”
