In October, Kelce debuted at No. 1 in the U.S. and has held its spot in the Top 5 since it premiered on Sept. 12, according to Deadline.

On an episode of their podcast New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, Jason and Travis, 34, joked that the documentary’s success was in part thanks to Travis’s girlfriend, Taylor Swift, and their then-budding romance.

At the time, Swift, 34, had just begun making appearances at Kansas City Chiefs games to cheer for Travis.

“By the way, the number one documentary of all time [on Amazon Prime] — did you see that, how crazy is that?,” Jason said on the podcast in October. “All because of you and me, doesn’t have anything to do with this Taylor Swift drama,” poking fun at his family’s newfound attention from the singer’s fans.

“Everybody is just so interested in the family dynamic,” Travis said of the film’s success on the October podcast episode.

Travis continued, “I thought that was pretty cool man. That’s fun to hang your hat on that. For those of you who don’t know, it’s the most-watched documentary ever on Amazon Prime Video.”


Among the major storylines in Kelce, the former Philadelphia Eagles star opened up about grappling with retirement and the subsequent emotions of hanging up his cleats.

He also spoke candidly about his concerns as a father to three young daughters — Wyatt, 4, Elliotte, 3, and Bennett, 12 months.

“I am fearful about what the impacts of playing football are going to mean long-term,” he shared in an emotional scene with retired Eagles player Connor Barwin in Kelce. “I have two girls and … some people end up getting CTE and some guys live long, healthy lives. I have no idea what’s gonna happen.”
