Well, this pretty much proves that Ryan Lochte wouldn't become the next Bachelor because he wants to find love.
Instead, he wants at least $750,000 to do it — and the number could climb to $1 million very quickly if ABC is truly interested in him.
Here's how they justify it:
"Ryan's agents are getting besieged with offers and deals, everything from The Bachelor, his own reality show, and some overseas movies."
Overseas movies, eh??
The good thing is that we won't have to wait around for months to figure out what he's doing. Apparently they're going to pitch him the offers this week, because decisions need to be made quickly!
The source continued:
"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."
We're sure that if he acts like a decent guy, he'll be portrayed like that. But if he gets all fratty on us, you bet your asses we'll be seeing him shown that way! We just hope he doesn't wear his grill to meet the girls… ew!
Just make the decision already, Ryan!
