Secretly, we're kinda glad!
While his antics would've been entertaining for a while, what we know about his love life and his need to train over his need to find a relationship would have had us seriously skeptical that he was actually in it for romance.
It's true: Ryan Lochte is apparently now "out of the running" to be the next Bachelor.
Here's what a source had to say about it:
"We honestly briefly considered him. But we are going elsewhere. It's really down to Arie and Sean."
Arie and Sean were fan favorites during the most recent Bachelorette season, but a decision between the two hasn't been made yet.
Lochte already has guest spots lined up on 90210 and 30 Rock, so it's not like we'll be missing him at all.
Are U sad about this news??
