Olympian Ryan Lochte has officially landed his own reality show.
The gold medalist landed a show on E! called What Would Ryan Lochte Do?, the network announced at the Television Press Tour in Pasadena, California on Monday.
According to Celebuzz, Lochte’s show will premiere in April and it will air weekly, lasting six episodes. The show will follow Lochte as he goes after his dream of becoming a fashion designer.
In a statement, E! Entertainment President Suzanne Kolb said “Ryan Lochte captured everyone’s attention at the Summer Olympics with his athletic prowess and his utterly unique and unaffected approach to life.”
She added “He is an incredibly endearing personality who is sexy, entertaining and fun. Watching this show, I believe people will fall into three categories: they want to be him, sleep with him or mother him.”
On Monday, Lochte took to Twitter to write “Excited for you all to see! RT @ENews: Ryan Lochte Reality Series Coming to E!: So What Would Ryan Lochte Do?.”
Since the summer Olympics, Lochte hasn’t shied away from the cameras. He made cameos on 90210 and 30 Rock and also became an E! News correspondent during Fashion Week.
