Jeah! Olympic gold medalist (and sometime-Michael Phelps-defeater) Ryan Lochte has made his very first post-Olympics career move: he’s heading to “90210” for a guest spot during Season 5 of the CW drama.
Lochte has already talked about wanting to move to Los Angeles to start a career in fashion (those green sneaks and that American flag grill prove he’s definitely got a … unique sense of style). Perhaps the “90210” appearance will kickstart his new venture.
The swimmer will make his very first TV appearance as a guest at the resort where Naomi and Max are staying. His episode will air Monday, Oct. 29 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
“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! Team USA are all-stars in our book, and we’re so excited he’s making an appearance on the show. 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,” executive producers Patti Carr and Lara Olsen say in a statement.
Also making a cameo during Season 5 of “90210” is Carly Rae Jepsen, who will perform her new single (a.k.a. not “Call Me Maybe”) during the Season 5 premiere.
