Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte is everywhere following the Summer Olympics, where he won 11 medals and became a national star! The swimmer came out of the Olympics with several new sponsors, a clothing line (in the works) and interest from several television networks and producers.
“I’ve been lucky enough to get all these proposals,” Lochte told Celebuzz during our live The Daily Buzz show of his TV opportunities.
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.”
The athlete hasn’t been shy about his aspirations to break into reality TV and has made it clear on several occasions that he’d love to be on ABC’s The Bachelor and Dancing With the Stars.
“Whether it be The Bachelor, Dancing With the Stars or other sitcoms,” he told us. “You know what, me and my team are going to have to sit down and actually decide on what route we want to go to and what shows we’re actually going to do.”
Lochte certainly loves the attention, the limelight. Every time you see him, he’s hamming it up for the cameras yelling his stupid catchprashe “Jeah!” If Ryan’s show does make it to E!, would you watch?
