Wow! We were sure Ryan Lochte was a "loch" to win the spot as The Bachelor.
Apparently, he's in a "three-way tie" for being on the show.
We're sure he doesn't like that, he wants to take the gold!
His manager said:
"We have only had preliminary contact with The Bachelor. Absolutely no figures have been discussed and no one from Ryan's team has made any comment with regard to compensation."
So is Lochte even still interested in doing the show?
An inside source said:
"No money has been talked about with regard to the Bachelor, but yes, he has been approached. He is open to featuring his dating life on TV. He's one of three along with Arie & Sean. He's not the top choice. It's really a three-way tie. My guess is it won't be Lochte, but it keeps changing."
Everyone is talking about TV but the fact is, he's a swimmer, and he wants to be an Olympian again in 4 years.
Lochte's manager said:
"At this time we are still fielding several TV offers, but ultimately training for 2016 Olympics remains Ryan's top priority. Thus, anything in entertainment would have to be scheduled with consideration and deference to his training schedule which will resume shortly. Also at this time Ryan is keeping all of his options open. He is very fortunate to be in this position and is taking every offer with great consideration."
We think a reality show about him training for the next Olympics while trying to balance his social and love life would be the best idea.
Doesn't impact his training and he won't have on a shirt for most of the time. LOLz!
