Ryan Lochte Can Add 'Hot Dog' To His List Of Accomplishments

ryan lochte olympic gold medal hotdog named pinks food weird

Ryan Lochte is an enigma.

He's done one of the most prestigious things that a human being can do — he has won an Olympic gold medal. No joke, there are people that dream of representing our country in such a fab way!

But then literally everything else he's ever done is like the opposite of winning Olympic gold. He has a reality show on the way, collects "grills," and misses the point of iconic album covers. Now, we can add to that list: a hotdog is being named after him!

LOLz!

Pink's Hot Dogs is a famous staple around L.A. — it's arguably one of the most famous of food joints around. They're the ones that named a hotdog after him, including the combo. Here's what it includes, according to the source:

The "Ryan Lochte" hot dog combo features two of the restaurant's stretch hot dogs, topped with mustard, chili, French Fries and nacho cheese, served with a side of "Olympian Champion" onion rings.

We'll be honest, that sounds DELICIOUS. The only problem is, we feel like he could be doing much more inspiring things with his time as an Olympic athlete!

Here's what he said about he food, though:

"I've got to hand it to Pink's, they're dead on with this combo. I eat constantly, so the fact that it's not just one hot dog is awesome (seriously, I could eat five). And I guess the onion rings are supposed to represent the Olympic rings, which is cool. All that for eight bucks, COME ON!"

At least he's pretty, you guys!

LOLz! Plus, we're pretty sure he's a nice person — if not just a liiiiiiittle misguided!

    Geez, that sounds pretty good, just do not think I could eat 2 of those dogs. Never been to Pink's in Hollywood, but they used to have Pink's at one of the local theaters, cannot remember if it was AMC or what. Personally I am all about popcorn with salt and butter at the movies, but if you like hot dogs they do have them. I am thinking it might have been the Pacific Theaters in Manhattan Beach on Rosecrans, which they have renamed an Arclight so they can charge a bundle. They also no longer have popcorn or pretzels with cheese sauce and charge about $12 (for a matinee!).
