Ryan Lochte Reality Show: Watch Trailer Here


Yes, this is happening. Ryan Lochte, the guy we remember from the 2012 Summer Olympics, who won gold in the pool and made headlines for his playboy persona out of it, has his own reality show. What Would Ryan Lochte do premieres on the E! Channel on Sunday, April 21 at 10:00 p.m. (EDT). 

The latest trailer is out and one thing is certain: This show is going to be something. So much to talk about, and that's just in the four-and-a-half minute "supertease." Taking the most "Lochte" moments (a term now used to describe anything that should be surprising but isn't in the least because it's Ryan Lochte we're dealing with here), here's an in depth look at some of the greatest moments from a four-and-a-half minute preview of What Would Ryan Lochte Do? with quotes and explanations before a screen shot from that moment of the trailer:

Ryan Lochte's catchphrase is "Jeah." He even has a license plate for it. As he let's us know: "If you say it like how it's spelled, it's jee-ah … But that's boring, no one wants to hear that. So you have to really put that emphasis on the J."

Perfect.


"Ryan Lochte’s walking everywhere!" — Ryan Lochte


And by the way, Ryan, what is the "Ryan Lochte edge" you keep talking about? 

"You know I've never been asked that question, and I honestly have no idea, it's…" Thanks for clearing that up for us.


"You gonna cook for me?"

"Aw hellllll no."


But his partner in bromance, Gene, gets Ryan, explaining that, "Ryan's the type of guy, he lives every day to the fullest," while they play drunk golf.


"I wanna settle down, I wanna find that one that I can spend the rest of my life with — "
Aww, Ryan, you're a romantic!
" — I just don't see that sh*t happening any time soon."


Ryan's sister Kristin, who is always right, and Ryan hates that, is going to be an amazing reality show star.


Here, we see Ryan as a family man! Look, he's even disgusted with himself after blows spittle on his moms head!


I will give this guy credit, he's clearly a great athlete and he does love his family even if he spits on them. Anybody gets to tear up a little when talking about family, so Lochte gets a pass here.


"Don’t duplicate, just recipitate."—


Ryan Lochte, everyone!
