Ryan Lochte receives multiple offers to star in reality show
U.S. Olympic gold medal swimmer Ryan Lochte has multiple offers to star in a reality show as he gets ready to leave the Games in London and move to Los Angeles, according to a report on Wednesday from the HollywoodReporter.com citing his agent, Erika Wright:
“I cannot tell you the exact shows, but two different reality show concepts have been offered and one additional is being discussed,” Wright writes in an e-mail, adding that American talk shows are angling to book Lochte as a guest when he returns to the states.
Wright also revealed that he has other television offers as well as an opportunity to create his own fashion line. His agent also confirmed that he has been asked by actor Will Ferrell to star in a skit for Ferrell’s comedy site FunnyOrDie.com.
Lochte also reportedly said he would consider appearing as a contestant on the television show Dancing with the Stars, going so far as to suggest that Michael Phelps should also join the competition.
Lochte won gold at the London Olympics for the 400 meter individual medley and the 4×200 meter freestyle relay.
