Ryan Lochte Lands Own Reality TV Show

0107_lochte_articleJeah, it's happening!

Swimming superstar and 11-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte has landed his own reality TV show on E!

E! is part of NBC Universal, the same network that airs the Olympic Games.

The title of the show? "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" Perhaps it's a play on the famous "South Park" song featuring another Olympic champ, "What Would Brian Boitano Do?"

According to the press release, “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” follows the 28-year-old as he prepares for the Rio games in 2016 while building his fashion line, making buzz-worthy media appearances, dealing with his unconventional family and loyal friends and, always, searching for "the one."

Sounds like a lot to fit into a six-episode series.

"He is an incredibly endearing personality who is sexy, entertaining and fun," E! Entertainment President Suzanne Kolb said. "Watching this show, I believe people will fall into three categories: they want to be him, sleep with him or mother him."

How about smack him?
