Ryan Lochte made quite the splash on Day 1 of the 2012 London Olympic Games, but Michael Phelps has regained the spotlight making history for most medals, along with showing the world that he can master the art of the interview. Lochte still has quite the distance as the video below shows.
Ryan Lochte is quickly learning from the 2012 London Olympics Games that there’s more to a quick rise to fame then just a good time. A reader has created an interesting ‘best of’ clips from Lochte interviews over the past few years, and seeing him talking at the Olympics this year, not much as changed as he discusses his deep insights into insights into life, Lochte and … rocks. Michael Phelps has taken back the spotlight after making Olympic history and today he claimed his 16 Gold Medal! Lochte could learn a lot from the swimming phenom when it comes to interviews. There’s a short Q&A one below from Women’s Health along with the really funny video below. When you’re mother is telling the press that her son only has time for one night stands, the video makes more sense.
Ryan Lochte On Women, Sex and Sleeping Naked
1. When you see a woman you want to meet, you . . .
Make eye contact. Some guys keep staring, but I’ll give a wink and come back later, because it keeps her thinking.
2. What confuses you about the opposite sex?
It’s impossible to know what they’re thinking. If I could have one superpower, I’d be like Mel Gibson in What Women Want, where he reads women’s minds.
3. You’re very stylish. How important is it for a guy to have fashion sense?
Really important–it’s how your personality comes out. I don’t have a set style, but I try not to dress like everyone else.
4. What do women look hottest in?
One of my long-sleeve button-down shirts and that’s all. The second sexiest thing: white jeans.
5. You’re surrounded by dudes constantly. Be honest: Do guys swap sex stories?
RAPID FIRE QUESTIONS:
Sexy women always… keep a fit body.
Celeb crush? Carmen Electra.
What do you sleep in? I’m mostly naked.
Lights on or off? On.
Ryan Locthe Interviews Showing Not the Brightest Bulb – Best Movies Ever
2012 London Olympics: Ryan Lochte Hasn’t Mastered Interviews Yet – Best Movies Ever News
Hey haters, when you can demonstrate the level of dedication, determination, and drive that this young man, and stand atop the proverbial podiums, knowing that you are the best in the world; then you are qualified to judge.
Not sure what kind of Olympic coverage you are watching, I just thought I would share what our commentators in Canada passed on about Ryan Lochte. Basically, he is an extremely engaging, approachable person.
When Canadian swimmer Andrew Ford called him up and asked if he could come down and train with him in Florida. Not only did Ryan say yes, he offered him his brother's room.
Personally, attributes such as these win over giving articulate interviews any day.
I do not think he is really that dumb. Partly, he is an athlete - they are not known to be particularly bright anyway. But also during most of these interviews he looks exhausted. Do you think you are all at your best self when you are about to colapse on the bed? These guys train so hard that they can barely stand after their races.
And also, I've done interviews myself - it does not come naturally to everybody. I did one with a friend of mine who had gotten a scholarship for Master of Finance in Columbia and he was absolutely terified. I was recording him with my iPhone and I told him that I will only use the record in my notes for the article that I was writing about him. So nobody besides me will ever hear the recording of the interview. Still, he was so scared. I've never seen him so tense and we were very close friends and classmates in college. It is not a matter of being dumb or smart, some people just feel better in front of a camera than others. Look at Ian Thorpe for example, the guy is a natural talent, BBC should not let him go after the Olympics.
speaking for gay men only, he is handsome, sexy, and ... not dumb.
most ordinary people can't answer questions, articulately, on camera. believe me, as a former reporter, I know this. so he's just a regular guy with a great smile and amazing physique.
What a dolt. In a few years, his looks will have faded, people will have forgotten about him, and he'll still be dumb. What a travesty. Ultimately, more people oughta give their brains a workout instead of their bodies, since in the wise words of Judge Judy: "Beauty fades, dumb is forever!"
