Rumors of Ryan Lochte as The Bachelor are swirling ever since the Olympics, and last night, host-pimp Chris Harrison says he's very much open to the idea.
With a couple of caveats, that is:
- Lochte must wear a Speedo the entire season.
- Absolutely no peeing in pools at the mansion.
"That's part of the deal" Harrison said at The Expendables 2 premiere in Hollywood. "Did you see him in his Speedo? I mean, all of America stopped."
"It's a female driven show, come on!"
Lochte, who will guest star on 90210 this fall, said of the Speedo stipulation, "That's fine ... I usually already am. There's not much of a difference."
While conventional wisdom says the show will go with Arie Luyendyk, Jr., or Sean Lowe, Harrison says "I think it would be awesome" to have Ryan.
"If he promises not to pee in the pool, we'll be alright."
"If it gets asked, I'd definitely consider it," the 28-year-old swimmer said of looking for love on The Bachelor this winter. "So we'll see what happens."
