Ryan Lochte may not have won himself a ton of fans during the premiere of What Would Ryan Lochte Do, but he has managed to get friendly with some of his fellow E! stars. The Olympic swimmer was spotted chumming it up with Kim Kardashian and Ryan Seacrest during the E! Upfront red carpet even in New York City.
He may be new to the reality television seen, but Ryan Lochte certainly is learning (yes, he is, in fact, capable of learning) one thing fast: it’s impossible to attract everyone’s admiration, especially when you’re a reality star. The swimmer explained this concept in detail while on the red carpet at E! Upfront. ”The more known you get in the public eye, the more haters you’re gonna have and that’s a given. But, you know what? All the haters, all the name calling goes through one ear (and) out the other and I don’t mind it.”
Ryan added that, if he manages to snag a ton of haters, well, that means he’s been doing something right. Based on that assessment, the swimmer is perfectly on track to reality stardom, for he certainly has earned himself plenty of haters. His show has largely been panned by critics and the Twitterverse alike, although some fans of the athlete are busy littering the social network with #jeah every chance they get.
No matter what the critics think, Ryan has built himself a tight little circle of friends on E! The Olympian had the priviledge of hanging out with the likes of Ryan Seacrest and Kim Kardashian during his red carpet appearance. Check out the photo he posted to Twitter and then tell us what you think!
