There's any number of ways they can earn a crust - coaching would almost certainly be an option for some (it looks like that is Rebecca Adlington's plan). I have no problem with them going on reality TV, but it's far from their only option.
...I'm sure professional Olympic athletes could gain some lucrative work through their actual profession. It says a lot about society these days when being a media whore is excused as 'needing to make a living somehow'.
That's a bit like assuming anyone who's been to Uni should consider teaching in the subject offered: a particular skill doesn't automatically extrapolate to a particular profession and why should it? I did French and I neither teach nor use French professionally...
