Olympic stud Ryan Lochte wants at least $750,000 to become the next Bachelor, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Ryan’s been very open about wanting to be the next star of The Bachelor, and his team has told producers that the number to just get everyone around the table would be $750,000, and that number could likely climb to $1 million very quickly if ABC is truly interested in him.
“Ryan’s agents are getting besieged with offers and deals, everything from The Bachelor, his own reality show, and some overseas movies,” a source close to the situation tells us.
The reps will present all the current offers to him in the next week or so, and decisions will need to be made quickly.
“Ryan is acutely aware that he has to attach himself to the right projects and endorsements that won’t do damage to his all American image. As much as he’d like to do it, Ryan does have some reservations about The Bachelor because he wouldn’t have any control on how he is portrayed on the show,” the source adds.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the Olympic hunk soaked up the benefits of his new-found fame and partied up a storm in Las Vegas last weekend.
In addition to The Bachelor, the 11-time medalist has his eye on Dancing with the Stars, and he’s appearing in an upcoming episode of 90210.
