Was Travis Kelce’s relationship with Taylor Swift engineered by Fox Sports personalities Erin Andrews and Charissa Thompson?
In a resurfaced podcast clip from August, the two are seen pleading with Swift to consider dating their ‘fantastic’ friend Kelce, a star tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs.
‘[Taylor] I know we’re not the best of friends, we’re not even friends, but I consider you one,’ Andrews said on the August 3 podcast. ‘Take us up on this. Go on a date with this guy.’
Thompson told Swift that she should ‘do it for yourself’ but also for the two podcast hosts and the public: ‘There is no one who would give you a better time than this guy.’
Kelce responded to the reposted clip on social media, writing: ‘You two are something else!! I owe you bigtime!!’

The hysteria surrounding Swift and Kelce continued on Sunday night when the pop superstar appeared at MetLife Stadium to watch the Chiefs defeat the Jets.
Sunday’s star-studded occasion in New Jersey lived up its billing as viewing figures increased from those from the week before, when Swift watched the Chiefs tight end play for the first time at Arrowhead Stadium.
An average of 27 million viewers tuned in to NBC and Peacock to watch the Chiefs hold on for a nail-biting victory against the Jets, as celebrity pals Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman and more joined Swift in her suite at MetLife, according to release from the network.
As the Jets pulled to within eight points of the Chiefs during the second quarter of the thrilling Week 4 matchup, viewership peaked at an estimated 29.4 million viewers.
