Newly-minted U.S. Olympic champions’ victory lap on TV continues. In an interview on NBC’s Today, swimmer Ryan Lochte said he is considering a gig on ABC’s biggest reality series. “I’m definitely looking towards Dancing With The Stars and The Bachelor, so we’ll see what happens,” he said. Meanwhile, Oprah Winfrey will devote an episode of her OWN program Next Chapter to gymnast Gabby Douglas, who will be featured on the Aug. 26 show. There is a lot of media interest in the U.S. Olympic medalists from London, with a number of them likely to line up reality TV gigs. Champion Sanya Richards-Ross stars in a reality pilot, which was just picked up by WEtv.
