Ryan Lochte, Cosmopolitan

Go ahead and look at the picture of Ryan Lochte. We'll wait.

That GDoA (Glorious Display of Abs) is from Lochte's shoot with Cosmopolitan, which included a look into the new E! star's life. So if you have been wondering why Lochte wanted to do a reality show, he has an answer for you.

"My biggest passion is swimming but it's a sport that doesn't really get talked about until the Olympics," Lochte explains. "That's one of the reasons I wanted to do this show. I want people to enjoy the sport as much as I do."

If you're thinking that Lochte picked up a girlfriend from the show (or maybe just from pictures like this one), not so fast: "I am a single guy right now," says Lochte, "but you'll see me going on dates [in the show]."

What's a girl to do to catch Lochte's attention? "If a girl is really independent, that's a turn-on for me. And she doesn't have to play a sport for me to be interested in her!" Lochte says. But watch the bad habits: "If a girl smokes, that's a big turn-off," he adds.

For more Lochte (and more shirtlessness), be sure to tune in to the series premiere of What Would Ryan Lochte Do? on Sunday, April 21 at 10/9c!
