A great majority of people in the world have watched, or heard of the Olympics. Anyone who has seen the swimming portion of the summer Olympics should know who Ryan Lochte is. Lochte is now the star of his very own reality TV show, “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?”The premiere of this new show was April 22. The reviews were just about as bad as the show was expected to be. Lochte is known for being a one-night-stand lover, and just a plain out, dumb person, and that’s just what he comes off as in the first week. In the first episide, the 28-year-old swimmer talked about his reputation as a romantic player. He added that he doesn't really have to go out and look for a date, they always come to him.
Olympic swimming fans got a chance to see how Ryan Lochte's body performs in the pool during the summer games, as he took home gold medal after gold medal. On the latest episode of "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" they got an opportunity to go inside his mind and see how his brain works as well. He was in the middle of telling a story when he just froze and went blank. "I just blanked out again," he said after a moment.
Lochte explains, "All of a sudden, I have, like, a jumping banana in my head. Like, I don’t know what’s going on up there.”
No one seems to know, and not many appear all that interested in figuring it out either. Less than a million viewers tuned in for the premiere of Lochte's new reality show. The Washington Post pointed out that twice as many people tuned in to the rerun of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” that was going up against his show.
Many people are wondering how much longer Ryan Lochte will get to do this. For now, "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" airs on Sundays at 10 p.m. on E!.
