Lochte In LA: Reality TV, Fashion & Girls
With his good looks, simple thoughts and perfect tan, eleven-time Olympic medalist swimmer Ryan Lochte should fit in swimmingly in the City of Angels. Like many a bodacious babe before him, Lochte plans to move across the country to follow his dreams in Hollywood, he confirmed to The Today Show Friday.
He's hoping to have the spotlight follow him onto both ABC's reality shows "The Bachelor" and "Dancing with the Stars." When asked if he had to choose between the two, he chose the dance floor over the bachelor pad. "It's a competition and I have that competitive edge in me," he explained to Good Morning America.
The hunky swimmer is even reportedly in talks to develop his own reality TV show, about which he commented unabashedly (usually his style), "It wouldn't be your normal reality TV show because I'm definitely not your normal guy."
We say do it all. Given Lochte's difficulty speaking complete sentences -- made infamous by this "Lochte fail" video -- any show he's on is sure to have us on the ground laughing.
That is, laughing with Ryan. His sense of humor is golden in his debut Funny or Die video, in when the he deadpans, "The pool is the biggest and most expensive toilet, and it's all mine." He also announces his new book, "50 Shades of Yellow," in the comedy video.
The golden boy also says he plans to start his own clothing line in LA, which should be colorful, given his penchant for grills, studs, giant shoes, flowery speedos and blinged-out USA shades. Check out photos below.
Most importantly of all, Lochte's coming to LA for the California babes, according to our own suspicions. Even though his mom said he "goes out on one-night stands" (!), he told E! that he definitely wants a girlfriend. "I want to give a certain someone my heart," he said. "I just gotta find the right girl."
Angelenas with polished grills and bikini-worthy abs, your Olympian is on his way.
