ABC Shoots Down Ryan Lochte's Claim That He Was Offered 'Bachelor'

An ABC executive is shooting down Olympian Ryan Lochte's claim that he was offered 'The Bachelor' and 'Dancing with the Stars' but turned them both down.

"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," Lochte said in an interview with E!.

But ABC executive Robert Mills, who is responsible for reality programming at the network, says that didn't happen.

"Uhhh... you were never offered Bachelor," Mills writes on Twitter.

Lochte and his reality show 'What Would Ryan Lochte Do?' has been widely mocked.

It also didn't score with viewers after the first of its eight episodes premiered to 807,000 viewers last Sunday.
