With his reality show, “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” set to premiere on April 21 on E!, Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss the upcoming series and his future aspirations. And while the Olympics star may have some tread left on his tires as it relates to competitive swimming, out of the pool, he’s reaching for the stars, so long as those stars are reality show stars who are more style than substance, vapid, inane and more flash than talent. So, so, so much less talent. Ryan Lochte says that as far as his goals are concerned, he is aiming high and hopes to pattern his post-swimming career on none other than Kim Kardashian. Yep, he wants to be the next Kim Kardashian. Jeah, indeed. To set one’s standards of success by utilizing the career path set by Kim Kardashian (who should be divorced from Brooklyn Nets center Kris Humprhies within the next decade, not to mention have five kids) may be a questionable tact at best, Lochte insists that is what he envisions as the road he should take to ensure relevancy in this crazy, reality show-obsessed society. Lochte tells The Hollywood Reporter, “When I walk down the street, people recognize me, and that never happened before,” Lochte realizes this is his time to make his mark in the pop culture world, adding, “Now’s my chance.” And what better way to do so than by mimicking Kim Kardashian? He clearly possesses the same level of on-camera naturalness, as evidenced by this video, but he also seems to have some modicum of self-awareness and the ability to laugh at himself, as illustrated when he shot this humorous video for Funny or Die about peeing in pools. A definite departure from the cluelessness routinely exhibited by Kardashian. “Kim started from pretty much nothing, and now everyone everywhere knows who she is,” he says. “That’s what I want to do.” Aim high, young man. But if he really wants to be the next Kim Kardashian, a sex tape featuring him and some rapper — Lil’ Kim, perhaps? (just throwing names out there) — better be “leaked” on the double. Maybe some collagen implants in his butt wouldn’t hurt, either.

  • This guy is such a publicity *****. He should spend more time working on the next Olympics and less time trying to get on any show that will have him. He opens his mouth and drivel falls out. He's as dumb as a box of rocks!

TCU players furious about College Football Playoff snub

You can argue that no college football team had a worse day than TCU. The Horned Frogs were No. 3 in last week’s College Football Playoff rankings and beat Iowa State by 52 points on Saturday, but fell in the most recent rankings to No. 6 and will miss out on the Playoff. As you can imagine, some TCU players cannot believe that their team won’t get the chance to play for a national...

Brian Hoyer unlikely to be with Browns in 2015

Though Cleveland could very well use the franchise (or transition) tag, ESPN’s Adam Scheffer reports that quarterback Brian Hoyer is unlikely to return to the Browns in 2015. “Short of a playoff trip this season that could force the Browns to ramp up efforts to keep him, Hoyer is expected to depart Cleveland after this season when he becomes a free agent,” Schefter said on...
