Watch: Ryan Lochte's Miss USA Crush

Aw, look at Ryan Lochte getting all lovey-dovey!

During an exclusive interview with E! News today at the EleVen by Venus Williams show at New York's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, the rumor of Lochte getting up close and personal with Miss USA Olivia Culpo came up.

So what'd he have to say about that?

"She is beautiful. I love hanging out with her. She has a great sense of humor, she makes me laugh, she's just a good girl to hang out with."

How sweet is that?! 

And the Olympic swimmer couldn't stop boasting about Culpo, telling us, "She was telling me yesterday that she had never done a pageant until like a year ago, and now she's Miss USA. She's got something."

Does this mean they're really an item?!
