Chiefs star Travis Kelce stands out in People magazine’s recognition surpassing Joe Burrow and Lewis Hamilton

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce is famous not only for his athleticism but also for his appearance. Travis is one of the best tight ends in the league, with an illustrious 11-season career. He secured two Super Bowl titles during his tenure, earned All-Pro team honors seven times, and was an eight-time Pro Bowler.

Recently, the TE broke another record for receiving the highest yards in the Chiefs game in Germany. His excellence is now extending off-field as he garnered recognition for his looks. 

Travis Kelce crowned “sexiest athlete” by People magazine

People magazine crowned Travis Kelce the Sexiest Athlete of 2023. He surpassed competitors like Lewis Hamilton, Joe Burrow, and Shohei Ohtani in People magazine’s annual Readers’ Choice poll.

“The race for the sexiest athlete of the year was tight, with Lewis Hamilton, Joe Burrow, and Shohei Ohtani all competing at the highest level,” the magazine announced on Wednesday. “But the Kansas City Chiefs star received a last-minute surge in votes — perhaps thanks to his very A-list cheering section this fall.”

This title was given based on public ratings. Therefore, some people believe that the reason Travis Kelce got this title is because of Taylor Swift. Since he started dating the pop star, there has been an immediate surge in his popularity

The magazine acknowledged, “We knew that there are plenty of other sexy guys out there who have fans arguing for them as passionately as some of the people in the office angled for our top choice to take the top spot.”

A lot of Swifties have now become fans of Travis which might have led to the immense voting for him and eventually helped him win the title. But there’s no doubt that Travis Kelce (6′ 5″/250 lbs) is one of the best-looking athletes in the league.

Taylor Swift will receive a physical award from Apple symbolizing the craftsmanship integral to creating music. She expressed gratitude for the honor and credited fans for making the year exceptional.

Both Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce are very successful in their respective industries. Together, they symbolize not just individual success but a shared journey of two icons steadily growing in prominence and capturing global admiration.
