Ever since Michael Phelps decided to become a role model and hand over the party boy image to Ryan Lochte, Lochte became the darling of the Olympics world and the apple of my eye. That is, when I wasn't blinded by his American flag grills. It was only a matter of time before we got the inside glimpse of his life and that moment has finally come. In April. we are getting the Ryan Lochte reality show, aptly named What Would Ryan Lochte Do? because that is exactly what I ask myself before making any important decisions.
Even in the first ten second of the promo I can tell that this is going to be a gem. He has a personalized license plate with his motto "jeah" and shoes with the words "Ryan" and "Lochte" on the soles (just so he wouldn't forget his own name.) Magical. We also learn that he likes to dance around and take shots, hug blonde girls, and make crazy facial expressions. He also has a hard time stringing words together, but we already knew that.
The show, which premieres Sunday, April 21 at 10 p.m on E! will follow Lochte as he looks for love, trains for the 2016 Olympics and builds his fashion line. At least we know 1/3 will actually happen. Ryan, though, is totally serious about the 'finding a sole-mate thing' and prepared to settle down. He told USA Today:
Right. He did vie to become the next Bachelor, so hopefully WWRLD will become a franchise and next we will see Ryan and Candie's Love Nest. I'm going to say the love of his life is named Candie, just a thought. Or maybe it will be Carmen Electra who Ryan has pined over for like forever and gets to meet whilst on the show (maybe just a publicity stunt for her.) Check out their tweets to each other:
See how the both said "jeah"? That is totally love. Also, mental note to always use #jeah. This is now mandatory.
The show is hopefully going to be The Jersey Shore meets Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Ryan Lochte doing and saying a lot of dumb shit while spending a lot of money.

What catagory will you fall into? You'll have to wait until April to find out. Meanwhile, you can print this picture out and put it on your wall.
