It just occurred to me that I had stalked swimmer Ryan Lochte recently on the internet. I feeling this incredibly hotness void in my life that had to be filled. I know many of you are still grieving Lochte’s rejection from ABC’s “The Bachelor.” There was a lot of talk of Lochte having his own reality show as well. But alas it seems that Lochte is leaving Hollywood behind and going back to swimming. Don’t worry we can still watch his cameos in “90210″ and “30 Rock” this fall. But there won’t be the full Karadashian access that many of us want. If any reality show producers are reading please call Lochte and give him his own show. If “The Hills” can exist as a show there is no reason why a Lochte version, “The Waves” cannot. And even if it just involves watching him swim for 8 hours, I would still watch.
Maybe Hollywood thinks that Lochte is not engaging enough for his own show. It definitely doesn’t help that Seth MacFarlane did a not so complimentary potrayal of Lochte on SNL’s “Weekend Update” last Saturday. Reality television should not discriminate on personality or lack of because if it gets standards how will dumb/beautiful people survive in the world.
We all know how much everyone loves or loves to hate on swimmer Ryan Lochte. As it turns out that is the perfect combination needed for a reality star. For evidence consider how many Kardashian love/haters there are in the world. Lochte has been offered to star in three different reality shows. Although nothing is confirmed I can only hope that his mother is a major part of the show. Any mom who is willing to openly express her son’s love for a one-night stand is perfect for reality stardom.
Lochte has already expressed his willingness to go on “Dancing with the Stars”. Michael Phelps has also expressed interested in the show. Leaving the media to salivate over the idea of another Phelps/Lochte showdown. While Phelps has all the time in the world to work on reality television Lochte is still training for the Olympics in Rio 2016. So I can only imagine any show about Lochte’s life is going to involve a lot of time in the pool. Lochte needs to keep swimming to keep his sponsors happy. Fortune Magazine estimates that Lochte will be making $2.3 million in endorsements this year.
But with Lochte incredible hotness . . . I think I could watch him do almost anything well except for peeing in the pool. This is just nasty.
I have to admit when the 10,000(6 miles for us Americans) meters race started I was doubtful that USA’s Galen Rupp had a chance in hell. In a reverse racist move on my part, I was thinking really USA we are running a white dude. But shockingly Rupp came in second behind his British training partner Mo Farah. It was beautiful moment to watch Farah win for Great Britain. Farah ran the 25 lap race in 27 minutes and 30.42 seconds. To give you some perspective it would take me about an hour to run 6 miles.
For the US Rupp he brought home the first medal in the race since 1964 when Billy Mills won gold. If only NBC had interviewed him right after instead of cutting away to beach volleyball. Finishing with the bronze was Tariku Bekele of Ethiopia.
So there you have it, I should have never doubted Rupp.
We have all been distracted by the Olympics and we forgot about our normal media sensations like Tim Tebow. But while we were drooling over the hot Olympic bodies Tebow has been training with the Jets. He has been through a rigorous training program that includes running shirtless in the rain. I can say with confidence after watching this video several times(more times than I should probably admit) Tebow could definitely have a career in male stripping.
I always find kayaking to be relaxing but I guess when you are competing in the Olympics it’s anything but. Kayaking and canoeing another oh so not popular summer Olympic sport does feature one upside: Ryan Dolan. He’s a hottie from Hawaii who grew-up kayaking.
Reasons to love Dolan:
1. There is not just one but two Dolans to love. He has an older brother Patrick who is also an Olympic competitor.
2. His nickname is Kawika which means beloved.
3. When he’s not paddling he likes surfing and golfing.
4. He talks to kids about not doing drugs in his hometown.
5. His biggest inspiration in paddling is his grandfather.
Anthony Davis the number one draft pick by the New Orleans’ Hornet has sprained his ankle during training. The basketball wonder boy was scheduled to work in hopes of being on Team USA’s Basketball team in the London Olympics. Now it’s looking like he will be added to the long list of injured potential Olympic players. He’s in good company with: Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade, Derrick Rose, and
This gives hope to Olympic wannabes like Lamar Odom. But seriously enough with the injures already. I am running out of creative ways of saying players will not be going to the Olympics.
Trying to spice up the Hard Knocks series?
The media got it’s first peak at Tim Tebow as a New York Jet Thursday when they were invited to watch training drills. What did everyone think of the amazing Tebow? Not very impressive. Tebow seemed indecisive and was throwing too high. Mark Sanchez the Jet’s actually starter quarterback looked much better. Sanchez looked confident and he had good passes. Maybe this was the Jet’s plan all along to bring Tebow in to motivate Sanchez. If there was ever a time for Sanchez to shine it needs to be now. If Sanchez slips up Tebow will step in.
