Report: Ryan Lochte Is in Talks to Be the Next Bachelor — But He Wants a Major Payday
Jeah, boy! Did you know our favorite Olympian / lover of golden pool showers, Ryan Lochte, is a huge fan of The Bachelor? In fact, he'd like nothing more than to step into Chris Harrison's house of hotness and woo himself some ladies.
According to Radar Online, Ryan is seriously considering becoming the next Bachelor — but his asking price? Oh, you know. Just a cool $750,000, no big deal. "Ryan's agents are getting besieged with offers and deals, everything from The Bachelor, his own reality show, and some overseas movies," a source tells Radar.
It sounds like ABC is already courting Ryan (move over, Arie and Sean!), but he also has his eye on Dancing With The Stars. "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," the source adds. "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."
Is there any other way to portray Ryan other than like the angel he is? Time to start a petition. Join us, Bachelor Nation!
