You’d think the Super Bowl would be BIGGER this year than last, now that we have vaccines and a game that DOESN’T feature Tom Brady. But that might not be the case.
According to a Lending Tree study, expected spending on the Super Bowl is down 19% – from $108 per person to $88.
28% of people claim they don’t plan to tune in, which is UP from 21% last year.
In a separate survey, just 20% of Americans say they plan to attend a Super Bowl party this year.
But those who do go to a party will consume a LOT of calories.
According to one estimate, the average person will scarf down more than 8,000 calories.
The usual suspects include: Chicken wings, potato chips, pizza, dip, and of course beer.
96.4 million people watched the Super Bowl last year, which was down 3.5% from the previous year.
More people are STREAMING the game though, 5.7 million people were streaming last year, which was up 69% from 2020.
