A while back we heard that Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte was interested in being on a reality show, and it looks like those wheels are already in motion. Lochte recently revealed to Celebuzz that he’s currently in talks with E! Network (reality show home to Kevin Jonas, Mrs. Eastwood, and The Kardashians), but has been getting proposals from a few places. Don’t front like you’re not kinda, sorta interested in where all this is going, lol! Deets inside!
Celebuzz has the story:
Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte has certainly been a hot commodity since the Summer Olympics in which he captured 11 medals, the public’s admiration, several new sponsors and a lot of interest from various television networks and producers.
The 28-year-old, who recently shot a cameo for The CW’s upcoming season of 90210, did tell us that there was one network in particular that he has his eyes on: The E! Network.
“Yeah, we’re talking to them right now,” Lochte said of the cable channel.
What would his E! show be about?
“Pretty much, they follow me on my normal day, just training, doing my own fashion line,” he described.
And as for why he thinks the show would be a hit against all the other reality fare on TV, the athlete said, “It’s real. It’s not fake or anything like that.”
“It’s gonna be me, me being myself,” he continues. “And I’m pretty much going to show the world that and my new fashion line.”
So, here’s the real question: are you ready to see this guy, like all the time, on television, rocking pink speedos and ish? I can kinda get with the pink speedo bit, but thirty minutes of Ryan getting his ‘jeah’ on (shouts-out to Mc Eiht and/or Chris Byrnes)? I dunno, y’all. Lol. Honestly? I could see myself seriously watching it for all of seven minutes and then muting it– totally staying on that channel– just, ya know. Mute buttoning-it-up.
