Ryan Lochte confesses he wants to be the next Kim Kardashian (VIDEO)

In case you've been going through Ryan Lochte withdrawal since the Olympics, I've got some good news for you: The gold medalist's reality show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do?, is premiering in just a couple of weeks and if Lochte has his way, it will be as big as that of his fellow E! star, Kim Kardashian.

"Kim started from pretty much nothing, and now everyone everywhere knows who she is," he recently told The Hollywood Reporter of his big hopes for his new show. "That's what I want to do. ... I've seen what E! has done in the past with reality shows like hers. Today, she's huge."

Oh, Ryan Lochte. What can I even say about him? I totally get the appeal--he's good-looking, a top athlete, and wears flashy things typically only seen on the likes of Snoop Dogg. Still, seeing this latest comment of his, I can't help but sigh and think that pretty much the last thing this world needs is another Kardashian.

¿La hermana de Ryan Lochte es una racista? (VIDEO)

Qué vergüenza debe estar sintiendo el nadador estadounidense con raíces cubanas, Ryan Lochte, después de que se volviera viral un video en el que su hermana, Megan Lochte, se expresa con frases sumamente racistas sobre las personas de origen chino en una entrevista que concedió al comediante Mickey Cucchiella, para el programa Closing Time, tras su regreso de Beijing --lugar al que viajó para acompañar a su hermano a las Olimpiadas de 2008--. Y es que, durante toda la entrevista, Lochte no hace otra cosa más que hablar despectivamente de todo lo que respecta a la cultura china, llamándolos descaradamente, "chinacos" o "amarillos".

PHOTOS

I already knew that Ryan Lochte wanted to join Dancing with the Stars and maybe other reality TV shows, but he surprised everyone by landing a cameo in 90210! Be still, my heart.

Although I'm a big fan of the half-Cuban Olympic gold medalist swimmer (and, really, who isn't at this point?), I'm not really that into reality TV. I do love dancing and cooking competitions, but Ryan's recent Funny or Die videos and this new unfortunately not-shirtless role on the Los Angeles-based show have made me think about all of the OTHER great shows that Ryan absolutely must star in. Here are the 5 other shows that need to give Ryan Lochte a call ASAP.

Watch Ryan Lochte spoof himself in new 'Funny or Die' skits! (VIDEOS)

Olympian medalist and future reality TV star, Ryan Lochte, is debuting his acting skills (maybe as practice for his upcoming projects?) in two new Funny or Die skits that the swimmer filmed this week in London.

Both videos bank off of some of Lochte's most infamous moments, like flashing his American-flag diamond encrusted grill and admitting that he pees in the Olympic pool (seriously…kinda gross, but call me anyway!).
