Be still our beating hearts! Ryan Lochte says he's ready to find his soul mate and is seriously considering trying to find love on The Bachelor.
With 11 Olympic medals behind him, a killer body and a smile that could melt hearts faster than ice cream on a summer's day, the 28-year-old will surely have the ladies clambering for his attention on the hit ABC show.
"I would think about [being the next Bachelor]," Lochte told Access Hollywood on Wednesday.
"I definitely would because, you know, before I was training so much that I didn't have time for a girlfriend, [but] I wanted to give that perfect someone my heart.
"Now that the Olympics are over, I definitely want to settle down. So we'll see what happens."
Ryan has admitted that he wants to try his luck in Hollywood and has already appeared in two Funny or Die videos and has been cast in The CW's 90210 for a guest spot in their upcoming season.
"Swimming in front of thousands and thousands of people at the highest stage of competition – that's easy. That was a piece of cake," he said about acting on the Beverly Hills-based show.
"But this whole thing – memorizing lines and trying to say them and do the movement and all that, that was hard!"
The fifth season of 90210 hits screens on October 8 with Ryan's cameo airing on October 29.
