NFL player Travis Kelce can add REALITY STAR to his resume ... 'cause the Kansas City Chiefs tight end just landed a brand new TV dating series!!
"Catching Kelce" pits 50 (thirsty) women from 50 states ... all competing in a 'Bachelor' type contest to become Kelce's (wait for it ...) "lifelong teammate."
The 8 episode season is set to debut on E! sometime later in 2016.
The Chiefs might not be playing for the Super Bowl next weekend ... but nothing quite eases the pain of a playoff loss like 50 chicks fightin' to be your main squeeze.
