Popular media couple Kenzie & Roman co-created the game and serve as hosts for the show, bringing together their passion for the Cubs and the entertainment industry.
“The Cubs have played a major role in our relationship,” said Kenzie. “One of our favorite things to do together is spend a day at Wrigley Field. Sports truly can bring people together and we wanted to highlight that in The MVP Game.”
“As a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan, this is a DREAM opportunity to host this game show,” said Roman, who has been a Cubs season ticket holder since 2004. “There is no fanbase in sports like the Chicago Cubs and Kenzie and I are beyond excited to highlight some of the most passionate fans.”
“We’re always looking to showcase the many aspects of Cubs fandom, and we’re looking forward to airing this show featuring some of the biggest Cubs superfans,” said Marquee Sports Network General Manager, Mike McCarthy.
“Kenzie & Roman are dynamic together. The show is fun for couples to connect and compete for coveted sports tickets, and have a great time in the process,” said Mandell.
