The day has finally come! Ryan Lochte‘s 30 Rock cameo aired last night, and it was everything we could have hoped for.
As previously reported, the Olympian played himself in the episode, albeit a “sex idiot” version on a date with Jack Donaghy‘s kind-of-girlfriend Zarina. The role essentially amounts to him walking down the street, saying a few quick lines about giving his shirt away to some funny old guy, and then making out with Jack’s own sex idiot Mindy. We think he pulled it off with aplomb.
Lochte, it seems, agrees. Last night the swimmer tweeted:
Haha that was funny! What do u guys think about the 30 Rock episode tonight?
Well Ryan, I think it’s safe to say we enjoyed it. Watch the whole episode, called “Stride of Pride,” below, or skip ahead to the 6:25 mark if you’re just here to see Lochte shirtless (it’s ok, we don’t judge):
