Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte has spent the last several years trying to upstage Michael Phelps, his best buddy and biggest foe. But now that Phelps has officially retired from competitive swimming, Lochte is going to need to find a new venue in which to continue the endless competition. How about Dancing with the Stars?
Former Olympians often make excellent contestants on Dancing with the Stars. Just look at Shawn Johnson and Apolo Ohno. These two talented athletes are also amazing dancers, both having been crowned during past seasons of DWTS. Could Ryan Lochte be the next Olympian to add a mirror ball trophy to his massive collection of awards?
Lochte told Us that he would definitely be interested in joining Dancing with the Stars at some point, but only under the following condition: Michael Phelps needs to be on the cast too! “I could do Dancing with the Stars! Yeah, I think so…Since I’m so used to competing against Michael Phelps, I’d have him on the show.”
We’re used to seeing Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps battle in the pool, but on the dance floor? That could be interesting! Of course, if the whole Dancing thing doesn’t work out, Lochte says that he’d also be willing to give The Bachelor a try. He is a notorious ladies man, after all, and what could be better than having a ton of attractive women fighting for your attention? Oh wait, Lochte probably already experiences that on a daily basis. Dancing with the Stars might prove more of a challenge for this stud.
