Ryan Lochte books his first TV series appearace — CW’s ‘90210’

Fresh off his five medal wins at the London Olympics, swimmer Ryan “Pees in the Pool” Lochte has booked his first TV series appearance, but it’s not on “The Bachelor” or “Dancing with the Stars” as Lochte had hinted in the thick of competition.

Instead, the guy whose mom says only has time for one-night stands will play what he knows — himself, in a cameo, on the CW soap “90210,” the network announced Tuesday.

Lochte will be a guest at a resort where Naomi (AnnaLyne McCord) and Max (Josh Zuckerman) are staying to work on their relationship, on the Oct. 29 episode of the show, the network said.

“When we found out Ryan Lochte was going to be in town and might appear on ‘90210’, we felt like we’d won a gold medal!” said show exec producers Patti Carr and Lara Olsen in Tuesday’s announcement.

“We only wish the episode was a surf event so we could have gotten him in the water, but he deserves a little rest on dry land,” they added.

During the Games, Lochte told NBC’s ‘Today” show he’d be game for ABC’s “The Bachelor” or “Dancing with the Stars.” In interviews, he gave the edge of “Dancing” because, he said, he’s a competitive guy. He also told NBC’s Games celebrity interviewer Ryan Seacrest that he planned to move to Los Angeles after the Summer Olympics.
