Well, it’s about time Ryan Lochte made his post-Olympics late night debut! On Thursday, the hunky Olympian finally stopped by The Tonight Show With Jay Leno dressed in a sharp navy suit, gray shirt, and copper tie. Quite the turnaround from his previous red carpet ensembles.
Lochte, along with Hit & Run star Kristen Bell, chatted about swimming in the Olympics, his bromance with Michael Phelps, and how he nearly lost his gold medal because of his grill.
“But aren’t I representing my country? And the grills are American flag, so I thought, why not?”
As much as we like Bell and her plum Cushnie et Ochs dress, she was so annoying! Listen, we just want to watch Lochte struggle with his speech in peace, okay, Kristen?
Leno also asks if Lochte was a virgin at the Olympics, to which he vehemently denies. Uh, no shi*t, Sherlock. And then the host whips out a hot pink Speedo with stars that Lochte designed. Perhaps it’s a piece from his upcoming fashion line? Sadly, the swimmer didn’t model it for the audience:
And here’s a bonus video of Lochte proudly showing off a new swimsuit. Happy Friday!
