Could Ryan Lochte be eyeing a move from the pool to the small screen?
The hunky 28-year-old has already himself expressed interest in joining “Dancing with the Stars” and even suggested he should have a face off against swimming rival and U.S. teammate Michael Phelps.
Now his agent has confirmed that he is fielding multiple reality TV show offers.
“I cannot tell you the exact shows, but two different reality show concepts have been offered and one additional is being discussed,” Erika Wright told The Hollywood Reporter.
Confirming his popularity, Lochte has also been hit with even more endorsement deals (he already works with Speedo, Gillette, Proctor and Gamble, Ralph Lauren, Nissan and AT&T), as well as being recruited to front up fashion lines.
“I can say things have been quite busy for team Lochte, heating up fast and furious since the Olympics,” she said.
So what makes him so popular, aside from his Olympic medals, that is?
“He has this Kanye West-like persona in terms of attention,” Jesse Ryback of Premier Partnerships told The Hollywood Reporter. “That makes him even more memorable.”
