The "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" star makes "Good Day Philadelphia" anchors break into hysterical laughter (for all the wrong reasons)
Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte made an adoring "Good Day Philadelphia" anchor laugh so hard on Thursday, she was on the verge of tears, but sadly he wasn't telling any jokes.
On the contrary, Lochte was simply answering questions (or not) from local Fox television personalities Mike Jerrick and Sheinelle Jones about his E! reality show "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?"

"What is the premise," Jones asked, after openly fawning over the athlete's good looks. "Not that we shouldn't care what you do, but why should we care?"
"I'm a lot different than any other kind of Olympian. There's so much more to me than swimming," Lochte said. "I like to go out and have fun, like to go dancing, hang out with my friends. I like doing fun stuff like playing basketball, skateboarding, um, hanging out with my family, which is, like, the biggest part of my life. And you'll see all that on the show."
It was after the swimmer described his experience being filmed brushing his teeth in the bathroom mirror that both anchors started showing signs of breaking.
Before Lochte's satelitte connection was even cut, Jones and Jerrick were fighting off giggles and then fell into full hysterics once Lochte was off the air.
"Seriously," Jerrick choked out. "How are they going to put together 13 weeks of programming?"
Based on Lochte's own words, one would assume lots of dancing, hanging out with friends, basketball and skateboarding.
"What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" premieres on Sunday. Here's what to expect:
