Ryan Lochte has plenty of experience in pressure-packed situations under the bright lights, but that didn't help calm the nerves for the star swimmer on the set of "90210."
"It was my first acting gig and I was a little nervous going on set," Lochte told Us Weekly. "I kind of messed up my lines the first couple of takes, but after talking with the cast and them helping me out, I started nailing it towards the end and it felt normal."
The 11-time Olympic medalist wasn't afraid to poke fun at himself. During the Olympics, Lochte's mother said her son was too busy to commit to a relationship and had to settle for one night stands.
Lochte responds to those allegations in character:
A passerby: "Doesn't your mom say you didn't have time for a girlfriend?"
Lochte: "I don't, but does she look unhappy?"
With lines like that, there's no way Lochte won't succeed.
Lochte may not have acting in his future, so he should probably think twice before signing up for "The Bachelor."
