Hump Day Hottie: Ryan Lochte

You might already know this, but I’m sort of obsessed with the Olympics. The sports, the pageantry, the athletes who are not, for the most part, in it for the money – I love it all. Since Sunday, I have been ensconced in the swimming Olympic Trials. One look at Ryan Lochte – who will be swimming the 400 IM and maybe more – I knew I had to share him with you.

He’s looking in the stands for me. I’m right here, Ryan!

  1. That’s a wonderful way to start a second Monday. Had day off yesterday so it feels like Monday all over agian.

  2. Chitown Chick: I think these are some of the exact photos I used in my audition entry. I LOVE RYAN LOCHTE!

  3. Yes, please. I like swimmers. A lot. And Chitown, while I’m probably not obsessed, I do love the olympics too.

    That one with his back arched over the pool (#7 I think), makes my girly parts tingly!

    (also, I think he looks like one of the Carlson twins in that 1st pic)

  4. I’m glad I’m not the only one obsessing over the Olympics already. We share a love for Ryan. Thank you for that spectacular post. Now, excuse me, I need to stare at some pictures.

  5. I’ve already told you how I feel but I will reiterate: HE NEEDS TO CALL ME IMMEDIATELY.

    And he carries off the curly long-ish hair in pic #6 quite nicely.

    [I think we should keep a running tally of how many Olympians have the Olympic rings tattoo. I feel like I've seen a lot of them.]

  6. Dame, that would be a worthwhile endeavor. I know lots of wrestlers who have done it, and in this picture:

    you may notice a little bit of a tat peeking out from Michael Phelps’ f*** me muscle.

  7. You know, I’m glad that water is an nth degree above freezing because I think those suits require some, um, “shrinkage.”

  8. OH MY LORD…I…uh…*ahem*…nomnom…

    (*ahem* Yeah, I’ll reply again if/when I find my words.)

  9. mmm swimmers.

    My favorite picture is the one at the top.

    And what’s going on in his bathing suit when he’s arching to start the backstroke?

  10. OK. Saw him last night competing in the 400 IM of the Olympics. I am hooked. had to link this page to at least 20 of my 40 yr old stay at home mommies – we need a little yummy in our lives. Does anyone think he looks like a young and built Patrick Dempsey?

  11. They aren’t braces it’s his Grill lol and he’s a great kid from a wonderful loving, giving and humble family. GOOOOOOOOOO RYAN!!!!!! I about lost my voice when he was leading on the 2nd transition of the 400m

  12. Oh, One look at Ryan’s muscles i new that he is HOT! major HOT!
    i see Alot of girls are into Ryan…
    One day I Will Be There Competing Women’s 100m Butterfly!
    I’m obsessed with Swimming, not only i love swimming but i love teaching kinds to swim too!

  13. Ryan Lochte is the FINEST MAN ALIVE. Love his hair, his innocent face, omg he is just perfection. Whenever he’s on I run into the room just to watch his hotness in HD.

    He is my dream man, I just know it! :) He’s just sooooooo goooorgeeeooouuuus omg Ryan I need his autograph! :)

  14. Ohhhhhh my! We don’t have anything like this in England! Nothing else for it, I’m going to have to become an honorary American on this one so I can drool to my hearts content. Aw man, that smile!

  15. I agree completely.

    Just to let you know, those aren’t braces. That’s a grill… meaning Mr. Lochte is going to be a rapper after his professional swimming career.

  16. Well I must admit this young man is very attractive and I totally see the attraction. I love the pic of him in the white trunks. However, I was shocked to see how much he looked like my oldest son, ruining the whole girly parts tingling, bummer. Sorry girls, my boy is taken.

  17. woo hoo I like the one in the white shorts too, reminds me of my husband, so I don’t need pictures when I got the real thing

  18. Lochte is hot but I just can’t get over the muscle definition on Michael Phelps’ lower abdomen…yum. Must go watch more olympics…..

  19. OK .. lol
    I personally do think he’s HOT… why dont they just make a movie star outta him and be done with it?
    They could start with underwear commercials … GRIN
    Then move him into something more substantial… like the big screen…
    Can this guy act? Does anyone know? Does anyone CARE? LOL

  20. To whoever started this site, Thankyou! From day one that I saw Ryan I have not stopped staring. My family wonders why I cheer so loud for him and not Phelps. Hello! Look at him lol!

  21. Wow. Not only is he gorgeous, but judging from the pictures, he seems very down-to-earth and funny. Too bad NBC doesn’t spend more time interviewing him. It’s always the same old interviews with Michael Phelps, who always looks like he’d rather be anywhere else than talking to us nobodies at home. :)

  22. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for those fabulous, I’m sorry, DELICIOUS photos of Lochte and for the entire website. Finally a way for women to check out gorgeous men!!!! The male swimming is one of my favorite Olympic sports – can you guess why?!! (Male gymnasts have the bods, too!!)

  23. Oh my god. As a swimmer it’s so nice when a all around nice guy comes in to play. he has a great body, not scrawny like phelps, but the typical “V” swimmer body. tiny waist, big, probably great for cuddling, shoulders/arms… yummy… I’m as a loss for words to describe this guy…. a picture says a thousand words. :)

  24. WOW! After seing these photos I’ll be taking an extra loooong bubble bath tonight……girls, youknow what I mean……………….

  25. oh my god….the minute women discover a truly deliciously hot guy, every other jealous mail automatically labels him “gay”. Get over it!

  26. Who cares if he’s GAY or STRAIGHT! He’s a GOLD medalist in the Olympics! I like him for that. And maybe the men on here should take note, you’re just saying he’s gay because you can’t stand it that he’s the center of attention and you’re not! Go to a gym and loose that beer belly, maybe then you’ll get some attention!

  27. hey those arent braces…its a grill, i have to say just a bit cooler than braces hahaha. ryan’s the best backstroker ever yay…and hes not gay :)

  28. My heart pumps more than a hundred beats/minute everytime I see Lochte’s packs & bumps!!! Can I take that white trunk (pic #3) as a souvenir? PLEEEEEAAAAAAASSSSSSEEEEEE!!!!!
    I’ll see to it that my husband & 2 boys can’t take it away from me!
    OHHHHH…..RYANNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!

  29. Does he remind anyone else of one of those Roman statues representing young male perfection?

    He’s a gator, huh? I’d like to chomp on ‘at!

  30. Number three tells you everything you need to know about that georgous man. Let’s here it for tiny white briefs!!!!!!! THINK WE CAN GET AN ACTION FIGURE OF THAT BODY…uh man?

  31. he is too cute he is always smiling with that gorgeous smile what girl can’t fall in love with him by the appearence i just got a few of words to say HOT! HOT! HOT!!!!!!!!

  32. That smile makes me melt everytime! When he won his gold, I felt so happy for him like he was my husband winning the gold for me… ;)

  33. Mmmmmmmmm… not bad. I miss Matt Biondi though. Rosolino is not bad either. Michael Phelps hot? Get some glasses girl! Not bad Ryan, not bad.

  35. mmmm he’s got it all, scrumsious!!!!

    and he actuslly is a decent guy…

    he actually might be one of those perfect guys girls!!!!

    hes going to go off the market quickly

  36. Come on Ryan, market that junk! We need to see much more of you than Phelpsy. Koodos to him and he is fantastic but a girl needs what you got. The yum factor. Note to NBC, CBS, ETC, more Ryan please.

  37. Ooh la la. He is yummy. All of the US male swimmers had amazing bodies this year but Lochte stands out from the rest. It’s the playful quality that he has about him that makes him so appealing.

    But he should keep the short hair, the better to show off that gorgeous face. Like in the top photo, god how hot is he?
