10 Rio Olympics-inspired reality TV show ideas
The best moments from the Summer Games reimagined as a reality TV show
The Summer Games have come to an end, but we think we've found a way to keep the top moments alive.
Here are 10 reality TV show pitches that could come out of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games:
1. True Life: I'm Obsessed with the Eatons

The Eaton's make the number one spot on our reality TV show list. The athletics power couple have been the talk of the Rio 2016 Games and fans want more.
Ashton Eaton responds to 'traitor' backlash for supporting wife Brianne Theisen-Eaton
CBC Sports spoke with Brianne Theisen-Eaton during the Games and asked, "would you and Ashton ever consider doing a reality show?
Her response: "I don't know. We feel like our lives are really boring. We are not that interesting. We feel like we're just a normal couple. We would have to understand what would make it cool because we feel like it would be boring.
"We would have to probably talk about that."
Based on requests, it seems as though fans would find this reality TV show far from boring.
can ashton eaton & brianne theisen get their own reality tv show pls I've run out of youtube videos abt them to watch—@helen_dew
2. The Bachelorette: Simone Biles

3. Cops: Ryan Lochte
What happened the night <a href="https://twitter.com/RyanLochte">@RyanLochte</a> claimed he and 3 swimmers were robbed at gunpoint? We retraced their steps.<a href="https://t.co/qNxxtsd2Z3">https://t.co/qNxxtsd2Z3</a>—@nytvideo
After London 2012, Ryan Lochte was given his own reality TV show, "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" But after Rio, 2016 "Cops" may be the more appropriate show.
Bad boys, whatcha gonna do?
Ryan Lochte issues a statement on scandal in Brazil. (via <a href="https://twitter.com/RyanLochte">@RyanLochte</a>) <a href="https://t.co/GMkdomseNP">pic.twitter.com/GMkdomseNP</a>—@SportsCenter

Brazilian divers Ingrid Oliveira and Giovanna Pedroso made a dramatic splash at Rio 2016, but it was far away from the pool.
Reports indicate Oliveira kicked Pedroso out of their Olympic Village apartment so she could have some "alone time" with an Olympic canoeist. Pedroso claims that she wasn't allowed back in their room for the rest of the night.
Pedroso took matters into her own hands and left her diving partner. From now on, she will compete solo.
I have no sympathy for Ingrid Oliveira. Next time, don't screw your synchro partner over for some dude.—@StephAnne21
5. Tonga's Next Top Model: Pita Nikolas Aufatofua

After He Zi won a silver medal, her boyfriend and fellow athlete Qin Kai proposed during the medal ceremony. Some viewers were left gushing at the moment...
when Qin Kai's proposal to He Zi is so cute and is so much goals 😍😭😭😭😍—@RoyalBeatz3
...others weren't swept off their feet. Only time will tell if He Zi will say "yes" to the dress.
If Qin Kai really wanted the focus to be about He Zi, he could have waited until he stood on his own medal podium and proposed from there.—@soapachu
