In addition to getting his signature catchphrase ‘Jeah’ (meaning good or happy) trademarked, hot and half-Cuban Olympic gold medalist, Ryan Lochte, will star in his own E! reality show What Would Ryan Lochte Do? Because don’t you always ask yourself that?
The network announced Monday it will launch six episodes of the reality series in April, taking viewers inside the “unpredictable” and “offbeat life” of the 28-year-old Florida native. In addition to getting a glimpse of Lochte’s serious training regimen, E! said it would show the single swimmer’s search for the right girl as he regularly hits the clubs.
"Watching this show, I believe people will fall into three categories: they want to be him, sleep with him or mother him," E! Entertainment President Suzanne Kolb said in a press release.
The series, which introduces his mom (and "life coach") Ike, older sisters Kristen and Megan and younger brother (and best friend) Devon, was screened for reporters at E!’s TV critics press tour panel in Pasadena, where Lochte showed his duh side. “I don’t even know what is a douchebag,” he said about being called America’s Sexiest Douchebag. “I don’t even know what it means.”
Hopefully Lochte redeems himself on the show, but if not, who cares? Those abs!
