Ryan Lochte was the breakout star of the 2012 Summer Olympics, and now, the celebrated swimmer is reaping his rewards (the ones that didn't come in the form of medals); he's signed with E! for a reality TV show.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lochte inked a deal for six episodes, which will follow him around Gainsville, Florida, where he trains, goes out and works on his sneaker line.


The show will be called "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?", and E! Entertainment president Suzanne Kolb had this to say to the entertainment magazine:

"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.”

It's not Lochte's first appearance on the small screen; last year, he had cameos on "90210" and "30 Rock."
