Travis Kelce came onto the SNL stage to a few boos, discussing his second Super Bowl. He acknowledged his nerves and showed a clip of himself during a Chiefs game scolding his teammates and asking them to do more.

The Chiefs star mentioned a failed reality show he was on called “Catching Kelce.” He’s honest about the show’s failure, which gets a smile and some laughs from Jason.
Kelce added that he used to watch SNL with his mom when he was growing up. The four-time All-Pro also mocked his teammate, quarterback Patrick Mahomes, in a Kermit the Frog voice. We’ll see if Kelce’s teammates have fun with him and his performance on the show.
