The season finale of Catching Kelce just aired and Travis Kelce, 27 shocked fans by choosing 25-year old Maya Benberry over 25-year-old Veronica Harwood. In fact he shocked fans by even placing Maya in the top 4.
Why? Because Travis compares Maya to girls he has dated in his past, relationships that did not end well and girls that tended to be “over-confidant” and “arrogant”.
Yes, this NFL tight end is a big ‘ol bottom. He likes to be bossed around by sassy women.
Fans thought Travis was going to turn over a new leaf and choose the wholesome Wildwood, New Jersey pastry chef over the bad girl, but he did not.
During his dramatic final diatribe he tells Maya,
“I love your confidence, but at times it does get overconfident. It kind of shows arrogance. I have been attracted to women like that my entire life, and those relationships didn’t work because of that. I don’t want that anymore. I feel like I came into this idea, this experience, this show because I needed that change in my life, and Veronica is that change.”
Ok! So Veronica it is! Nope. Travis quickly does a 180 and dumps Veronica.
So are Travis and Maya still together or have things fizzled since the show finished taping in April?
Well…….I am not entirely sure. There is nothing as of yet to suggest they have broken up, but if we look at clues, there is little to show that they are still together which you would certainly expect to see if they were in fact still together.
One caveat: Maya did post this on Twitter:
So take heart Maya fans. There is hope.
One clue that I found compelling was an interview Travis did in kansascity.com right after taping in May in which he showed very little excitement about the outcome of the show.
Asked if he found someone really special in the end all he said was,
“Yes, I did pick a winner.”
Making things seem more dire in describing his excitement about Catching Kelce he said,
“I think it will be a pretty funny show, but I’m more excited for the football season,” …… “I’m not even a big TV guy, so for the most part, I was going into it blind and just enjoying the experience.”
Just “enjoying the experience” does not seem that promising.
No, “I wasn’t expecting to find love, but I did.” Nothing indicating he was still very happy with his choice and can’t wait for the show to air so he and his new love can finally emerge from months of hiding and announce their love to the world.
Obviously, Travis did not take the experience of finding love in a few weeks on national television as seriously as some reality show leads—ahem.
Stay tuned for updates. If the two stay quiet then clearly we have a breakup situation on our hands.
By the way, I suspect if Kelce relationship has fizzled we may seem him again on E!’s second season of Famously Single.
Maya Benberry confirms that the two have split on social media saying she is still single.
