We were pretty happy when we heard that Olympic champ Ryan Lochte was interested in competing on Dancing with the Stars. But the next big question was, how much will he be wearing? Viewers are used to seeing his chiseled abs on the pool deck and might not react well to Ryan Lochte in a tux!
Ryan Lochte made the big announcement last weekend: he wants on reality TV, be it Dancing with the Stars or The Bachelor. Seeing women flock around Lochte is nothing new (he has plenty of fan girls), but performing the tango? That could be interesting!
Of course, what would make it even more interesting would be if he danced sans shirt. And unlike last season’s heartthrob William Levy, Ryan Lochte is more than willing to oblige. When asked in an E! interview if he’d be scared to take his shirt off, he responded, “No, I wouldn’t. I’ll definitely be ready for that.”
Lochte has managed to get some onscreen time already, and we’re not just talking about Olympics footage. He recently snagged a cameo for 90210. Although it was Lochte’s very first acting gig, he thought it went well. “All the cast members, they helped me out, walked me through it and it was a piece of cake.” He added that he enjoyed the shooting process and would be happy to take on another acting gig in the near future.
What do you think of Ryan Lochte’s new career path? Is he cut out for acting? And would you watch him on Dancing with the Stars or The Bachelor? Tell us what you think in the comments section below!
