Lochte appears on first glance to be a beautiful catastrophe, the likes of which has not seen since Jessica Simpson made befuddled musings over chicken and tuna on MTVâ€™s â€œNewlyweds.â€
Lochte is mesmerizing, and not just because heâ€™s got a way with pickup lines and tightly fitting T-shirts and says his life â€œis like a Seinfeld.â€
He makes up words like â€œenfidenceâ€ â€” which is similar to â€œemphasisâ€ but with added moxy â€” and â€œrecipitate,â€ which is indescribable.
Heâ€™s managed to take a career in swimming â€” a sport people generally care about for about eight days in a four year period â€” and make himself a brand. A whole brand built around the perception that he has nary a brain cell to spare.
As it turns out, heâ€™s a charming fellow with an especially good relationship with his mom, and a desire to help out charitable causes.
