He has said before that he was a fan of acting, so reality TV would be perfect because he gets to be on TV without even having to act too much!
"I would think about [being the next ‘Bachelor’]. I definitely would because, you know, before I was training so much that I didn’t have time for a girlfriend, [but] I wanted to give that perfect someone my heart. Now that the Olympics are over, I definitely want to settle down. So, we’ll see what happens."
We don't know how he plans to "settle down" if he also wants to compete in the 2016 Rio Olympics!
Also, if he wants to keep acting, he'll have to work hard at that too, saying:
"Swimming in front of thousands and thousands of people at [the] highest stage of competition — that’s easy. That was a piece of cake. But this whole thing — memorizing lines and trying to say them and do the movement and all that, that was hard!"
Why does everyone think they could be an actor?
There's a reason only a handful of people win Oscars! It's freakin' hard, you guys!
Best of luck, Lochte!
