Small Bite: An olympian in a TV show? #TakeALook

Full Platter:


He swam into the hearts of ladies all over the world during the 2012 Summer Olympics, and now he'll be swimming into a television near you.

Swimmer Ryan Lochte might have gotten a lot of face time over the summer in London, but it looks like that wasn't enough for the 28-year-old from Florida. E! has announced that a show entitled, "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?," will debut as a six-episode series in April of 2013.

"Ryan Lochte captured everyone's attention at the Summer Olympics with his athletic prowess and his utterly unique and unaffected approach to life," E! Entertainment President Suzanne Kolb said in a statement. "He is an incredibly endearing personality who is sexy, entertaining and fun. Watching this show, I believe people will fall into three categories: they want to be him, sleep with him or mother him."

The premise of the show is to show Lochte in his element, preparing for the 2016 Rio Olympics, but also in the club scene of Gainesville, Florida, all over the country dealing with media appearances and establishing his fashion line, but also just dealing with the day to day of dealing with family and friends.

Rumor has it that a lot of the show will center around his search for a girlfriend, so ladies, you head to Gainesville before they stop filming!
