Should Ryan Lochte Have His Own Reality Show?

First there was the possibility of Ryan Lochte getting selected for an ensemble cast reality show, such as The Bachelor or Dancing With The Stars. Now, multiple sources have confirmed that the Olympic swimming gold medalist is in talks with E! to develop his own reality show. Clearly, Lochte is trying to capitalize on his newfound fame. And who could blame him?

Lochte was entertaining to many for more than just swimming during this year's Olympic Games. From his good looks to his catchphrase "Jeah!" to his custom made American flag grill, Lochte is one of those guys that people either love or hate. The Olympian's fame--or infamy--is at an all-time high, so it makes sense for him to take advantage of it.

Whether or not he can successfully negotiate a reality TV deal or two is on him and his management, but it doesn't hurt to try and make some money beyond swimming. However, he does risk not translating well on TV and faces potential overexposure. On the other hand, he could actually increase popularity through reality TV. With his family in the news lately, expect them to be involved in some capacity too. We will all find out soon enough. Jeah!

    I agree with spidey59, reality shows suck and they insult people by trying to pass those shows as "reality". They are done because they are cheap and don't take up their time.
    I don't watch them and most of my friends don't either.

    He's definitely a looker, and great at what he does, but I don't really think that's grounds for a good reality show. I wouldn't watch it.

    I saw him on TMZ the other night. I realized he needs to stay in the pool. Talking to the camerman was a feeble attempt at best. Katie Couric should invit him as her co-host so they both can crash and burn at the same time.

    When I say no, I really mean I am not going to watch it. It's not my call as to who should or shouldn't get a show. I wonder how popular this will be though. Olympic athletes (other than tennis players and bb players or anyone in major sports heavily covered year round) are relevant to pop culture for several weeks every four years. I think DWTS is the only loophole around this right now. I think Lochte will be disappointed to know that his fame depends on built up excitement over the Olympics. Who knows though, people watch Bruce Jenner on a really stupid show. Maybe this will happen for Lochte.

    In all honesty...he's getting a little old for competition (he's not at all too old yet...but he does have to start looking to the future.)

    What we really need is to be rid of this horrible plague known as "reality TV" that has irreparably damaged our society. It is the most pointless, insipid form of "entertainment" ever to grace our screens, and needs to be eradicated before this virus spreads any further. If we end it now, then our children may actually have a hope.

    Ryan Lochte, no one cares about what you do in your daily life. Do us all a favor! Don't waste your money on a reality show that most people are going to hate. Just act in commercials like other Olympians.
