    A man needs his burger. I wish him well, although not my type. Hope he comes to Rio to help us win some gold! Congrats.

    I need pictures of Phelps, Jared. He will be missed.

    I know everyone will disagree, but I don’t think he’s stupid or AS stupid as everyone is making out. I think he probably has a lot of depth, but why does he need to show it to random strangers? Being unable to articulate himself well in front of a camera does not make you stupid; many people cannot do that. Besides, he’s not running for president so whether or not he’s stupid doesn’t matter. He hasn’t said anything outrageous either. He seems like a nice enough guy and I wish him every success.

  • dooliloo

    I now imagine talking to his burger : “Is it meat or crayfish in my burger? #Jeah!”

  • notyourfriend

    Sexy gets what sexy wants! Congrats on making a name for yaself muah!

  • L

    make him go away…. he was unbearably arrogant going into the games and I’m sick of him.

  • Love

    He really is very sweet guy. He is always great with his fans and kids. He’s also very easy on the eyes. Go Ryan!!!!

  • GreenGabby

    He’s beautiful! Looking forward to seeing him on Leno tomorrow.

  • seeaaaa

    God I can’t believe he’s 28…he acts like he’s 18, i don’t care how damn good looking and how sexy his body is…who wants to date a boy?

  • Heidi

    @seeaaaa: preach it sista!

  • Yummie

    I need a good American swimmer…
    So cute!
    I wish him all the best.

  • Nicoletta

    Excited to see him on my TV tomorrow.

  • Andamentothat

    Jeah!! Go Ryan! He deserves the attention after making USA proud at the Olympics 2012!

  • Pamela

    @BEAN: I agree, I don’t think he’s as dumb as people seem to think. The main points of what he is trying to say usually aren’t stupid, he just has a hard time articulating himself. He seems no different than Leo DiCaprio and a younger Brad Pitt. Kind of normal, all American, frat boy types. Lochte seems sweet, that’s why I can’t hate on him. That said, I do agree he needs to start acting little more adult and less like a teen. I like his candor in interviews, but he has to lose the grill and wigger persona.

  • Legit Question…

    to those who are familiar with professional swimming. Are swimmers drug tested regularly? I know some Olympian got tossed for testing positive for weed in London. I also know about Phelps and the bong. I am curious about their policies, because in all honesty Lochte does seem stoned 9x out of 10. He kind of reminds me of Jeff Spicolli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

  • Nicoletta

    I get the Spicolli vibe from him too, which I find endearing. I think Ryan’s great. He’s awesome with the fans.

  • James St James

    Let’s be honest, it’s annoying seeing him everywhere. There are so many amazing athletes who aren’t getting any attention. He’s average and people are falling at his feet. So weird.

  • MariaLinda

    as Jesus responded I am taken by surprise that someone able to get paid $6307 in 4 weeks on the internet. have you seen this web page (Click on menu Home more information)

  • Cambria

    @ #16 – it’s called charm. That’s why even those who dont like him still click n read about him. And those who like him will even admit to some negatives. Like a previous poster said, same goes w dicaprio n he has the boyish charm that Pitt has.

  • F

    I love Ryan but could he looks more of douche bag? Nobody wears a big huge necklace like that except in the 80′s. Got he’s needs help bad.I mean if he would just hire himself a stylist and publicist he would be good.

  • Ryan Lochte loves McDonald’s! — I remember back in 2008 when Ryan was competing Beijing Olympics, he ate McDonald’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I even saw his face on the McDonald’s bag here in the US.

  • Ellgy


    Geez, McD’s burgers are the worst. They taste like cardboard. So much for his tastebuds.

  • response

    I think he gave up McDonald s a few years back in lieu of a healthier diet. McDonald’s burgers look vomit inducing to me.

  • reezyfan

    I wanna give him a beej

  • jess


  • rada

    his hair looks better this way, no product!

  • Daisy

    I love that JJ is featuring not just celebrities in the entrainment industry but athletes now to, they work harder and have more talent then most of those Kim Kardashians out there.

  • Piper

    i find him cute like i find a puppy peeing on the carpet cute. cute, dumb and infuriating.

  • Kora

    Right on Daisy!

  • guzin

    god he is really really hot but he isnt a star why is he in that website. and phelps is better anyway. lochte is superhot, grevers is hot

  • ale


  • Toni

    @response: He did he said after his knee surgery he changed his diet.
    While looking at his interviews more I also don’t think he’s as dumb as people are making him out to be. I think it’s his tone of voice which is monotone and then you add that hes a bit inarticulate in front of the camera. He reminds me a bit like Derrick Rose.
    I will say Ryan please stay away from being a fame w.h.o.r.e and just do endorsements and focus on swimming. I really want him to win in Rio.

    @Pamela: the wagger persona? don’t you think that was just a tad bit racist?
