Ryan Lochte has won over quite a few hearts in the past couple of weeks and made several headlines with his, er, interesting manner of speaking. Plus, his mom totally called him out for having one-night stands. Not only do those things make for good stories, they make for excellent reality television.
Rumor has it that Lochte is in high demand to star in the next installment of "The Bachelor"; since he's already said he's down for "Dancing With The Stars" and wants to pursue a career in Hollywood once the Olympics are behind him, it's not too big a leap to assume he would do well on a show like "The Bachelor".
"Ryan would make the perfect next 'Bachelor'," Amy Rosenblum of Media Masters said. "He has the 'it' factor. Especially after his mother's one-night-stand comment, everyone wants to know who is the real Ryan and what would it be like to date him. Forget dancing shows -- this guy should be doing dating shows, for sure."
Obviously, nothing has been decided yet, but judging from the reaction he gets from the ladies when he's in the pool, it's likely he'd have a whole troupe of women lining up to date him.
If Ryan Lochte is the next Bachelor, I might actually start watching that show.
