Aug 13, 2012  •  Post A Comment

An Olympic athlete who won five medals in the London Games as part of the U.S. team says he’s considering appearing on reality television. Swimmer Ryan Lochte says he’s interested in two reality shows, "Dancing with the Stars" and "The Bachelor," reports the Los Angeles Times’ Ministry of Gossip.

Lochte made the comments on Friday’s "Today" show, telling Matt Lauer, "I’m definitely looking toward ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and ‘The Bachelor,’ so we’ll see what happens."

Lochte won two gold medals, two silver and one bronze during the London Olympics. He has a total of 11 Olympic medals going back to the 2008 Games in Beijing.

Apolo Anton Ohno, another Olympian, won the mirror-ball trophy on "DWTS" in 2007 after he competed in the 2002 and 2006 Winter Games, the story notes.

  1. Anyone else think it was hilarious for Lochte to mention 2 hit ABC reality shows while doing the NBC morning show? I’m sure the NBC execs were pleased.
    Lochte is a bit of a publicity whore of course, so I don’t doubt he’s going to milk his current celebrity status for everything it is worth. Anyone that will point a camera lens at him and pay him for it will get a chance to have him on their show.
