Jason and Travis Kelce in hysterics over Arnold Schwarzenegger’s one Super Bowl pledge if he were to become US President

Jason and Travis’ show has reached epic new heights with their latest guest.

Bodybuilding and acting legend Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared on the latest episode of the popular Kelce podcast to discuss his iconic life and career.

The Terminator traded Hollywood for politics in 2003 when he became the 38th governor of California, a position he held until 2011.

The 76-year-old has no plans to get back into politics anytime soon, but he entertained the idea for a brief moment while sitting down with the Kelce siblings recently.

“Arnold Schwarzenegger as president,” Jason said during the conversation.

Arnie then jokingly vowed to make a major move at the Super Bowl if he ever had to make it to the Oval Office.

“We would have the Super Bowl on the South Lawn of the White House,” Arnie joked.

“I can guarantee that right away.”

The brothers burst into laughter as Travis exclaimed, “That’s what I’m talking about!”

The movie star then added that his suggestion was not unprecedented, since President John F. Kennedy used to hold sporting events right in front of the White House when he was in office.

Of course, Arnie’s promise was ironic, and it’s unclear whether he will ever be able to become president of the United States, given that the president and vice presidents must be natural-born citizens of the United States .

Arnold was born in Thal, Styria, Austria in 1947 and moved to the United States at age 21 in 1968 to pursue his bodybuilding and acting dreams.

The Kelces teased the Predator actor’s appearance on Monday, although fans immediately assumed Taylor Swift would be the special guest.

“Guess who tomorrow’s guest is?” the official New Heights X account shared.

However, Jason quickly put the rumors to rest by confirming that it was indeed Schwarzenegger.

“Listen, my heart is racing right now – because we have the pump king in the building,” Jason said.

“The initiator of iron pumping. Our guest today is seven times Mr. Olympia, former governor of California.

“It made about $4 billion at the box office. You know him from some of your favorite movies like Commando, True Lies, Kindergarten Cop, Jingle All The Way… it’s that damn Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger!”

Kelce’s podcast continues to go from strength to strength, with Schwarzenegger representing arguably the biggest move of the series – which is saying a lot when they already had Kansas City superstar Patrick Mahomes.

The Kelces launched their award-winning podcast in September 2022, just months before their matchup in Super Bowl LVII – nicknamed the “Kelce Bowl” – where Travis’ Chiefs defeated Jason’s Eagles, 38-35.

“New Heights” has been steadily growing in popularity, and in January the brothers announced that the series had amassed more than 2 million subscribers on YouTube, a total that has since climbed to more than 2.4 million.

The show’s success was recognized at the recent iHeartMedia 2024 iHeartPodcast Awards, where “New Heights” won Podcast of the Year.

“Look, it’s an incredible honor, especially for two jabronis like us, to receive an award like this is beyond humbling and we would be remiss if we didn’t immediately thank all 92 percent of (their fan base) – aka Swifties – who voted for us to win this award,” Jason said.

“Thank you guys for everything. We truly have the best fan base in the world,” Travis said.

They followed that up by winning Podcast Academy’s Best Sports Podcast award.
