Olympic champion and the star What Would Ryan Lochte Do, Ryan Lochte, shares his thoughts on the ideal woman along with his love of swimming in this month’s Cosmo Guy. He also posed shirtless for the magazine, which should be a requirement for all of his interviews.
Here are some highlights from the interview.
Cosmo: What are we going to see you doing on your new show?
My biggest passion is swimming but it’s a sport that doesn’t really get talked about until the Olympics, unlike baseball, football, and basketball, which are on TV all the time. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to do this show. I want people to enjoy the sport as much as I do. My whole family swims! You can pretty much say chlorine runs in our veins.
Are you currently seeing anyone? Will we see you dating?
I am a single guy right now, but you’ll see me going on dates. I need someone who is able to hold her own – if a girl is really independent, that’s a turn-on for me. And she doesn’t have to play a sport for me to be interested in her! But if a girl smokes, that’s a big turn-off.
Who do you talk to about your dating life?
I know my family would never steer me wrong, so I go to them for advice. And if I go on more than a couple of dates with one girl, it could get to that point where she would meet the Lochtes.
Geez. Meeting the family after a few dates. That’s gonna scare some ladies off.
