So he gets dropped by all of his sponsors but lands a role on a show where every washed up star appears "Dancing with the stars' So I guess he's a star. Yeah a star Dbag. I don't blame the show they need gimmicks to get people to watch this piece of crap but really? Ryan Lochte? Why not cast mass murderers and crooked politicians? How bout a drunk Johnny Manzel I'd like to see him dance. Let's see how low this show can go. How bot Kim Jong-il in his snappy grey suit he's only killed a few thousand "detractors" Let's get dirty dancing with the stars…all Porn stars!
