After winning two gold medals at London 2012 and an amazing YouTube compilation, swimmer Ryan Lochte is taking his talents to Hollywood.
Appearing in an upcoming episode of 90210
, Lochte rattles off one-liners (including one for Michael Phelps) shirtless in the most uncomfortably awkward way.
After the shoot, Access Hollywood interviewed the five-time Olympic gold medalist. Lochte talked about memorizing his lines for the show ("memorizing lines and trying to like say them and still do movement, that was hard.").
Lochte also brought up the potential of dating now that the Olympics are done.
"Before training, I didn't have time for a girlfriend," Lochte said. "Because I wanted to give that perfect someone, like, my heart."
Lochte's the guy whose mom said he only had time for one night stands, like, a month ago. Perhaps the most gripping development coming from the Access Hollywood interview, was Lochte's openness to appearing in the reality series The Bachelor.
Please, TV gods, let Ryan Lochte star in The Bachelor.
