Jason Kelce jokes about ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ on ‘Thursday Night Football’

Jason Kelce is currently the sexiest man in the NFL, and he was introduced as such during his appearance on Thursday night’s Panthers vs. Bears tilt pregame show.

Kelce, the Eagles’ center, was mentioned in People’s Sexiest Man Alive issue, along with Pedro Pascal, Timothée Chalamet, Usher, Jamie Foxx and Lenny Kravitz.

It’s been a topic of conversation in the NFL community ever since, and was quickly brought up during the “Thursday Night Football” pregame, which airs on Prime Video on Thursday nights.

“Listen, I don’t know how this happened, but honestly, it’s just another day,” Kelce, 36, said. “My wife always says I’m the sexiest man in the world, so I was wondering what took so long for this nomination to happen.

“It’s been a whirlwind, it’s been fun. This is a win for plus-size bearded men all over the world.”

Kelce has gained attention in the NFL through his podcast, “New Heights,” which he co-hosts with his brother Travis Kelce, a tight end for the Chiefs.

His popularity grew even more with the release of the documentary Kelce, which premiered on Prime Video this fall.

In a separate interview on the “Thursday Night Football” broadcast, Kelce joked about losing to Patrick Dempsey, who was ultimately voted “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine.

Kelce jokingly said this was a wake-up call for him.

“It’s more of a matter of self-reflection,” Kelce said. “What could I have done to be better? How could I have been sexier? I don’t know. I did the best I could. My wife Kylie says I’m the sexiest man alive. She reminds me every day, so as long as I’m number one in her eyes, I’m okay with that.”
