Okay, yes, he’s EXTREMELY talented. And yes, he’s (GASP) faster than Phelps. BUT – there are a couple more reasons LOCHTENATION is taking over and none of them have to do with his performance in the pool.
1. HE MODELS IN HIS SPARE TIME
*Note: The picture on the left comes straight from Lochte’s blog, filed under “Model Photos”
2. HE’S A FASHIONISTO
Covering Vogue, posing with Karlie, taking fashion risks – NBD!
3. HE SAYS “JEAH” INSTEAD OF “YEAH”
4. HE ROCKS GRILLZ ON THE PODIUM
Just call him Weezy. Speaking of which…
5. … HE REFERS TO HIMSELF AS REEZY
6. HE ‘FATBOOTHED’ HIMSELF
7. HE LIKES SHOES … A LOT
8. HE PHOTOSHOPS ANIMALS
Or rather “Team Lochte” photoshopped Lochte glasses onto various different animals and then posted it to his blog. Click here to see all the amazingness.
9. HE PULLED A “FREAKY FRIDAY” WITH JAY-Z
10. NO MUGSHOT, NO MOUSTACHE
In all my Internet creeping I could find no trace of a mugshot or a moustache. The same cannot be said for Mr. Phelps.
