Ryan Lochte Turned Down Roles on "The Bachelor" & "Dancing with the Stars"

After just getting a whack at his own reality show, Ryan Lochte admits that he has turned down other small screen opportunities in the past.

While attending the E! network's annual upfronts event, the Olympic swimmer explained, "They asked me if I would [do The Bachelor] or Dancing With The Stars, and I was like, 'why don't I just have my own reality TV show, and just put it all in there myself?' Do it my own way."

And that's just what Lochte did! The 28-year-old stud's first series "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" premiered Sunday night on E! and even trended on Twitter.

Dishing about seeing the first episode for himself, Ryan said, "I didn't know what was going to be on the show, so after seeing it and seeing my family all laughing, I was really pleased with everything, and how it went with everything. Seven more episodes left!"

"What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" airs every Sunday at 10/9c on E!.
