I can't remember where but I read some comments to a very similar article to this. A few of the comments regarded how it might not be wise to have Lochte as The Bachelor because he could come across as very unintelligent. That honestly would be my fear as well. Granted in some interviews maybe it's because he is not use to the public eye so he might just be saying the wrong things. Who knows tho if put in a normal enviroment he might come across very different. And if he turned out to be a player...ooooo well that would be bad for his public image. I think if anything he should do DWTS...much safer enviroment for him.

I'm not crazy about this news.   I wasn't really feeling the love for him during the Olympics and I also don't know if this is the correct venue to gain him some positive publicity.

Yeah I didn't really feel the "love" for him either. Again I don't know if that is because he wasn't very good in front of the camera and had very little experience on tv??

I was thinking the same thing...Lochte vs. Phelps on DWTS would be my preference over just him doing the Bachelor.

Phelps on DWTS...even tho I would like to see him do something I'm just not sure if that would be the right venue. He has such long arms and is sooo tall. He would probably turn out like one of those really tall Basketball players and clomp around the stage with a girl that is two times too small for him. Not that I would mind seeing a Lochte vs. Phelps match but I want to see Phelps in something he doesn't look like a gangly giant...lol.

Phelps is signed up to do "The Haney Project" on The Golf Channel.  This is a great series where Hank Haney (big name in golf instructors) teachers celebrities how to golf or works on their golf game.   Adam Levine was on last season and it was really interesting to see him in a totally different venue.

NO! My vote shouldn't count as I don't watch this show but ugh, he may be eye candy but have you heard anything that's come out of his mouth? If it does happen, it will be nice that they have found someone "new"- not someone from previous seasons but it seems more like a gimmick to me.
