Ever since winning gold medals in the London 2012 Olympics, swimmer Ryan Lochte has indicated he has made winning in Hollywood his next step.
The 27-year-old champ has already shot a guest spot appearance on the CW’s 90120 and E!’s Fashion Police and now reports have surfaced that he will he the next Bachelor on ABC’s hit reality show. And a the highest paid bachelor ever, receiving a whopping $750,000 salary to appear on the show.
But RumorFix has learned straight from Ryan’s camp that this rumor is false.
They told us, “We have only had preliminary contact with The Bachelor. Absolutely no figures have been discussed and no one from Ryan’s team has made any comment with regard to compensation.”
But that’s not to say we won’t be seeing him elsewhere on the small screen. His people added, “Ryan is keeping all of his options open. He is very fortunate to be in this position and is taking every offer with great consideration. No decisions have been made.”
