The Real Question Is: Would YOU Do Ryan Lochte?

Cuban Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte has been facing a lot of criticism lately. His new reality show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do?, isn’t going over so well with viewers. To top that off, some of his interviews have made him out to be, well, like not the brightest lightbulb in the room. All in all, the whole experience has made some of us question whether he’s a bit of a douchebag--and whether we’d date him anyway. 

After a long debate, and posing the very real question of “Would YOU do Ryan Lochte?”, we’ve decided that there are 5 very good reasons to date Ryan Lochte. And no, not all of them have to do with his epic inability to keep his shirt on (though that does help). Check out all of our excellent reasons, below, and then tell us: would you date a potential d-bag guy?
