Ever wondered “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?”? E!’s about to share it with the world by granting superstar swimmer Ryan Lochte his own reality show.

The new six-episode docu-series, announced Monday by E! President Suzanne Kolb, will follow the Olympic athlete, who, according to the press release, “would do just about anything for love, for family, for his friends and for the embodiment of his personal philosophy, which is summarized in his signature phrase, “Jeah!” ”

The show is set to premiere April 2013 on E!.

“Ryan Lochte captured everyone’s attention at the Summer Olympics with his athletic prowess and his utterly unique and unaffected approach to life,” said Kolb. “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.”

Lochte, 28, won two Gold medals at the 2012 London Games, and soon after was professing his desires to go Hollywood. Looks like he got his wish. He got a taste of it earlier this year when he made a cameo on the NBC sitcom “30 Rock” … playing a “sex idiot.” Watch His Interview Below.
