While on the Late Show with David Letterman, the host tried his best to get 'dumb' answers out of the Olympic swimmer, and even though he did stumble over some replies, he actually made it out of the interview scot-free.
However, since Ryan answered questions correctly, Letterman awarded the 28-year-old hunk with a round of applause for every time he did something right. LOLz
Guess when you have a bad rep, then all anyone can do is give positive feedback for any good that's done! Ha!
Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious clip (above)!!
