It’s official: Ryan Lochte is getting his own E! reality show. It’s called What Would Ryan Do? and it will be a six-episode series created by Intuitive Entertainment.
“Ryan Lochte captured everyone’s attention at the Summer Olympics with his athletic prowess and his utterly unique and unaffected approach to life,” E! Entertainment President Suzanne Kolb said in a statement. “He is an incredibly endearing personality who is sexy, entertaining and fun,” she added. “Watching this show, I believe people will fall into three categories: they want to be him, sleep with him or mother him.” So true – I definitely know which category I fall into. The new series will show the Olympic swimmer partying, training for the 2016 Rio Olympics (Speedos!!), working on his fashion line, making appearances, and dealing with this outspoken family. Oh, also he’s single and looking… for the right girl.
As you are probably already aware, Lochte doesn’t give the best impression on camera… when he’s not talking…that’s one thing, but interviews are another story. This should make for a very hilarious and quotable show. To give you an example, below is a video compilation done by BuzzFeed of some awful clips from interviews he has done.
