Looks like Ryan Lochte isn’t going to be staying ‘under the profile’ for long. Then again, did he ever?
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Olympian’s aspirations to be a fashion designer are no longer just pipe dreams; he’s actually received offers to create one. We’re guessing it will feature lots of grills, ‘swaggy’ high-tops, and weird LED belts.
But that’s not all. Lochte is also currently in talks about making a reality show. Lochte’s agent Erika Wright told THR in an email:
“I cannot tell you the exact shows, but two different reality show concepts have been offered and one additional is being discussed.”
We can actually think of several concepts for a Ryan Lochte reality show: 1) Ryan trying to launch a fashion line (obvious) 2) a chronicle of Ryan’s one-night stands, and 3) Ryan moving to a remote island with Blake Lively. All of which sound fascinating. Apparently he mentioned that he had an interest in being on Dancing With The Stars to reporters as well. Just think of all the post-dance interviews! He also told Ryan Seacrest that he plans on moving to L.A. after the Olympics. Jesse Ryback of consultancy Premier Partnerships told THR of Lochte:
“He has this Kanye West-like persona in terms of attention. That makes him even more memorable.”
