Ryan Lochte is apparently shopping around to potentially land his own reality show.
The Olympic gold medalist's agent Erika Wright has revealed Lochte has numerous offers on the table to star in a reality TV show and the 28-year-old swimmer isn't exactly turning them down.
"I cannot tell you the exact shows, but two different reality show concepts have been offered and one additional is being discussed," Wright toldThe Hollywood Reporter.
Even if neither one of the new project offers comes to be, viewers may also see Lochte starring on an existing reality show.
Lochte -- who is prone to receiving a lot of attention via mostly negative publicity and has even been labeled "America's sexiest douchebag" by bloggers -- told reporters he's open to appearing on Dancing with the Stars and even suggested he could compete against Team U.S.A. swimming teammate Michael Phelps.
Phelps won the gold medal in the men's 200-meter individual medley race last week in the London Olympic Games, narrowly beating Lochte who took home the silver after finishing only a matter of hundredths of a second behind.
In addition to fielding reality shows, according to The Reporter, Lochte has also been offered daily endorsement deals, a fashion line, a FunnyOrDie video online, and a variety of American talk show appearances once he returns to the States.
Lochte also told Ryan Seacrest he plans to move to Los Angeles once the Olympics are over.
