Ryan Lochte on Reality Show Prospects: 'Dancing With the Stars,' 'The Bachelor,' Call Me! (VIDEO)
Television producers are salivating over the big personalities (and hot bodies) of this summer’s Olympics. And Ryan Lochte is definitely fielding offers.
“We’ll see,” the 28-year-old swimmer told co-host Matt Lauer Friday on NBC’s Today. “We’ll see what happens. I’m definitely looking towards Dancing With the Stars and The Bachelor, so we’ll see what happens.”
What did The Bachelor host Chris Harrison have to say about Ryan’s chances to be on the show?
It’s looking good for this summer’s five-time Olympic medalist on the ABC dating competition.
Harrison jokingly tweeted later Friday morning, "[Executive Producer Mike Fleiss] just told me he liked Ryan Lochte in his speedo so much he's now on short list for #Bachelor.”
Apparently, Lochte’s grandmother got it wrong when she told Celebuzz recently that she didn’t think he’d be interested in reality television with his training schedule and goal of returning to the games in 2016.
But, there are definitely swimming pools in Hollywood… Plus, he has his eyes set on another glamorous career.
“I definitely want to go to L.A. That’s been a big goal of mine, getting into fashion,” the Florida resident says. “Because, you know what? That is my passion. When swimming’s all said and done, I definitely want to get into fashion and design my own clothing line.”
Maybe, he should do Project Runway too? Make it work, Ryan!
