A Failed Reality Show
Remember when E! execs thought a reality show following the biggest douchebag in America would be a draw with viewers? It lasted one terrible season.
Gold Medal for Lying
In August of 2016, Lochte claimed he was held up at gunpoint by robbers in Rio. This didn't actually happen. What DID happen? Lochte got wasted, vandalized a gas station and was told by gun-wielding security guards to pay for the damage he caused.
And a Gold Medal for Awful Interviewing
So Lochte proceeded to give multiple interviews and release multiple quotes as an attempt to cover up his lie. It didn't help that he never admitted to telling a total and complete lie.
Even Justin Bieber Thought This was a Dumb Idea
In 2012, Ryan planned to have all of his family members' birth dates tattooed on his torso. We guess he actually realized at one point that this was a dumb idea.
TMI Much, Mom?!?
"He goes out on one-night stands,” Lochte's own mother told Today.com in 2012. "He’s not able to give fully to a relationship because he’s always on the go." Hey, the dude is allowed to bang whomever he wants. But why does his mom know this information?!?!?!?
This Exchange Happened Once:
Interviewer: “[What’s] 7x4?”
