While the Olympic swimmer gets ready to debut his reality show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do? this month, he's been studying the reality queen's show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and even admitted that she's his inspiration.
"I have the most respect for her with her business and what she's done. She started from nothing and now look at her. You can ask anyone and they're going to know who she is. She's handled herself really well throughout the years of doing her own show. She's a star.
I started watching to try to learn what to expect. The whole Kardashian family, they have a bunch of energy. Wow, this was awesome. That's how my family is. We all have a bunch of energy and we are all different."
Could this mean that after Ryan gets done with his show, his family might get a spinoff and then we're gonna have to Keep Up With The Lochtes???
Seeing that the hunky swimmer is very adamant about wanting to be just like Kimmy, we wouldn't be surprised if his loved ones are the next Kardashians.
After all, who wouldn't want to keep up with another family?? LOLz
