Ryan Lochte Is Actually Serious About a Reality Show

Watch out Honey Boo Boo Child, you might have some competition diving to TV’s rock bottom. It seems Ryan Lochte is poised to realize his true dream of swimming himself to television gold.

The blue-eyed devil and lovable airhead has not been shy about his aspirations since the Olympics. And as he tells Celebuzz, he’s even assembled a “team” to work on high-profile gigs. The Bachelor? Dancing With the Stars? All in the pipeline. Plus, he’s apparently in talks with E! about his own reality hour. The high-concept spin: “Oh, me being myself, training and like doing my fashion line.” Sounds riveting.

If, however, watching him do stretches and choose swatches doesn’t hit big with America, may we suggest: a sex tape (see fellow E! talent for tips); an oddly matched and possibly closeted marriage (ditto). And if all else fails, why not move into a Las Vegas suite with royal bestie Prince Harry and find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real? We’ll be sure to set out DVRs.
