The source also goes on to say that Ryan Lochte started “Dancing With The Stars” with good intentions being humble, but ended by being “ungrateful” and “really cocky.” In fact, the insider claims that Ryan’s low scores over the past two weeks are because he’s been too busy looking for his next gig to focus on practicing! “Ryan was more interested in looking for his next gig then he was in rehearsing for the show and he kinda seemed to give up these past couple of weeks.”
Meanwhile, behind the set of “Dancing With The Stars” they’re allegedly not sad to see Ryan Lochte go. “No one was complaining because everyone pretty much shared the same sentiment. They are all just glad he is finally gone!”
