Olympic athletes automatically become role models or a special, super-talented type of celebrity in the eyes of us commoners. They have SO much dedication, so much perseverance, so much spirit. They give their lives away to the sport of their choice and while doing so, give UP so much as well. It’s easy to see why we place them on pedestals and Olympic podiums.
But some Olympic athletes have more than just an incredible drive. They have incredible looks. Ryan Lochte, oh swoon. He is just gorgeous. Unfortunately, though, according to his mother, he only has time for “one-night stands”. What a serious shame. But luckily, after doing a little bit of research, I have discovered 10 tips that are sure to win you more than just one glorious night with him, 10 tips that will win you his heart. Read more…
“He goes out on one-night stands. He’s not able to give fully to a relationship because he’s always on the go.”
– I love the way that Ryan Lochte’s mom Ike manages to make one-night stands sound like formal events. Like Ryan calls random girls up and, in his vaguely brain dead way, asks, “Wanna have a one-night stand?” And the girl in question is all, “Jeah!” Also, Ike is a mighty supportive mom, huh?

Ladies love Ryan Lochte. And Ryan Lochte loves what on a woman? The (possibly?) most-watched Olympian recently sat down with Women’s Health for a quick interview, where he revealed what he thinks — and probably only he thinks — is the sexiest thing on a woman.
Seriously, it’s really weird, dude.
When posed with the open-ended question: “Women look hottest in _____”, Lochte answered with … Read more …
I’ve always found the phrase “Shut up and look pretty” awfully offensive, but then I started listening to swim god Ryan Lochte speak in interviews and had a change of heart. Ryan Lochte is Jeff Spicoli and should definitely just shut up and swim. [Buzzfeed]
Gold medal Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte is kind of the Brody Jenner of the sport. Which is to say, he’s a total bro, right down to his hella ugly American flag grill, and ubiquitous use of the made up word, “Jeah.” In this helpful video, Lochte explains all the many uses of “Jeah,” and cements his status as a major broseph.

Ryan Lochte is an Olympic gold medalist. He’s also an inveterate Twitter user/abuser. And man, does he ramble some strange shit. His Twitter paints him as the Olympics’ very own Brody Jenner. A bro of extreme magnitude whose love of Mountain Dew and the word “Jeah” (which signifies everything from “my taxes are astronomical” to “kind sir, would you please remove your boot off my neck”) is well-documented.
He’s also, perhaps, maybe, a terrible speller.
But all of that make his Twitter ramblings highly entertaining and definitely worth a look. That’s why we’ve selected out 11 of our favorite Lochte-isms, for your enjoyment.

Speaking of Ryan Lochte … the dude is such hot shit at the 2012 Olympics that he’s the inspiration for the latest “Call Me Maybe” spoof. In “Call Me Lochte,” the comedic geniuses at NOC remixed Carly Rae Jepsen’s inescapable tune into an ode to Lochte stealing Michael Phelps’ thunder as the United States’ favorite swimmer. Sample lyrics: “More gold than Mark Spitz / Strange pecs, taking bong hits / Stay smooth, shave your armpits / Where you think you’re swimming, Mikey? / Hey, I’m not Michael, don’t eat at Subway / But this is my year, so call me Lochte / It’s hard to swim right, by Phelps baby / But this is my year, so call me Lochte.” Indeed it is — but let’s not forget that, as of now, Phelps still holds the all-time record for most gold Olympic medals. Ryan Lochte just happens to make my teeth sweat a little harder. [Popdust]

On Saturday in London, U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte — a gorgeous man of very, very few words — swam his way to his first Olympic Gold medal in the 400m Individual Medley (teammate Michael Phelps, who reigned supreme in 2008, came in a disappointing 4th). I wonder how the notorious ladies’ man celebrated? Click through to see the swimmer in action…
U.S. Olympics swimmer Ryan Lochte — who won our Olympic Hottie Face Off over Michael Phelps — flashed his bling after winning the men’s 200 meter individual medley final at the 2009 ConocoPhillips Nationals Championships & World Championship Trials. It wasn’t the first time he broke out the grill to celebrate either — he also rocked the look in 2007 to match his medals. So what do you think? Hot or not? [Indiana, 7/12/09] Keep reading »
In tonight’s 200-meter individual medley Olympic final, Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte will have another swim-off — while Phelps won this race in the 2004 Olympics (and has been cleaning up the gold medals in 2008), Lochte won silver and will be his fiercest competitor in this rematch. But there’s a far more important stand-off to decide between these two teammates and friends: Who Would You Rather…Michael Phelps or Ryan Lochte? Keep reading »
