Punchlines: Troubled swimmer to reality TV star?


It looks like Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte may be given the opportunity to repair his tarnished reputation.

According to a USA TODAY report, the athlete is slated to appear on Dancing with the Stars. While negotiations for the deal started before the Rio gas station incident during this year’s Games, his appearance on the show may give him just the chance he needs to win over the American public. Or should he view his stint on the reality TV program as punishment? Late-night comic Seth Meyers has his own take.
