“They asked if if I would [do 'The Bachelor'] or ‘Dancing With The Stars.’ And I was like, ‘why don’t I just have my own reality TV show, and just put it all in there myself?’ Do it my own way.”
The athlete’s show, “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?,” premiered on E! last weekend, and managed to get its own hashtag (#wwrld) trending on Twitter.
“I didn’t know what was going to be on the show,” Lochte said. “So after seeing it and seeing my family all laughing, I was really pleased with everything, and how it went with everything. Seven more episodes left!”
Lochte also said viewers of the show will see him on a quest for true love, as he goes on dates with several women.
“What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” airs Sundays on E!.
