The Kelce family has been all over the news recently, whether it's Travis and his romantic exploits, the extreme relatability and "realness" of Jason's wife Kylie, or America's adoration for Donna Kelce, the family matriarch.
So it's no surprise that when People Magazine selected its six finalists to be named this year's "Sexiest Man Alive," there was a Kelce in the field.

Oh, were you expecting Travis? The brother who is dating the biggest star in the music world, has graced the digital "pages" of GQ in part by virtue of his fashion acumen, and even starred in his own dating show at one point? No, it's Jason, the bearded and endearingly dad-like Philadelphia Eagles center.
Jason once noted amidst a debate on the brothers' "New Heights" podcast that Travis is a Hall of Fame lock, has more Pro Bowl and All Pro selections, more Super Bowl wins, and is the better looking of the pair. Well, the football-related parts of that statement are hardly debatable, especially after Travis's Chiefs took down Jason's Eagles in a historic Super Bowl this past February, but the last bit is now a bit more hazy. Taylor Swift might not agree, but America has spoken, or at least one of its major media outlets has- the Philly legend and Christmas Caroler is one of the six sexiest men alive today.
In a certain way, it's hard to call this unexpected. As Travis noted before the season, Jason's jersey was the highest-seller amongst women in the entire NFL. Of course, that has changed since then with the masses of Swifties buying Chiefs #87 jerseys, but external factors aside, there is clearly a good bit of adoration for #62. Travis even remarked that his brother is the "sex symbol" for the NFL, a comment that clearly was more apt than anyone could have ever realized at the time.
An extremely biased Kylie called the attention for her husband "completely warranted," and also stated that she will "hold her ground" against any potential challengers for his affections. She wisely mused that his level of attractiveness is not just aesthetic; it has to do with his dominance on the football field, as well as his actions for good causes and true embracing of the Philadelphia community off of the field.
Jason Kelce?s Women?s Kelly Green Jersey is currently the Top Selling #Eagles item among ALL selections on Fanatics and the Eagles Online Shop.

Will Jason win? He certainly stands out in a field where his competitors are Timothée Chalamet, Lenny Kravitz, Pedro Pascal, Usher, and Jamie Foxx. His unique look compared to past winners and the "type" he embodies could be enough to garner the older Kelce brother one honor that Travis might never secure.
