Ryan Lochte is trying to cash in on the fact that after winning Olympic gold, he's one of the most eligible bachelors in the world!
So what other way for him to get paid than by going on ABC's hit show The Bachelor?!
Yes, the Olympic swimmer is in talks to be the next Bachelor, but he wants some big bucks for it. Reports say that Ryan is asking for somewhere between $750,000 to a million bucks to appear on the reality show, where women try to win the heart of one lucky man. Now that's a lot of iced out grills!
"Ryan's agents are getting besieged with offers and deals, everything from The Bachelor, his own reality show, and some overseas movies."
ABC is believed to issue an official offer sometime next week. Meanwhile, the source continues:
"Ryan is acutely aware that he has to attach himself to the right projects and endorsements that won't do damage to his all American image. As much as he'd like to do it, Ryan does have some reservations about The Bachelor because he wouldn't have any control on how he is portrayed on the show."
Do you think Ryan Lochte should appear on The Bachelor?
