LOS ANGELES, Aug. 9 (UPI) -- U.S. swim champ Ryan Lochte has been flooded with offers from various reality shows since he won five gold medals at the London Olympics, his agent said.
"I cannot tell you the exact shows, but two different reality-show concepts have been offered and one additional is being discussed," the 28-year-old athlete's representative, Erika Wright, told The Hollywood Reporter.
Wright said Lochte, who is from Rochester, N.Y., is also being offered endorsement deals, including contracts with fashion houses, while comedian-actor-writer-producer Will Ferrell wants him to appear in a comedy video on his Funny or Die Web site.
"I can say things have been quite busy for team Lochte, heating up fast and furious since the Olympics," Wright told THR.
