Gearing up to release his unscripted series, just hinted that he might not fit for a live TV show. The eleven-time Olympic medalist gave silly answers when interviewed by Mike Jerrick and Sheinelle Jones on Fox 29 news' "Good Day Philadelphia", causing the two anchors to collapse into fits of laughter.

The interview ran as normal as it could be until Jerrick asked Lochte a pickup line that would get his attention from women. There was a few seconds of silence before the competitive swimmer responded with, "Good question," and a puzzling statement, "My philosophy is if you're a man at night, you gotta be a man in the morning."

When asked how it felt to be followed by camera for his reality series, the 28-year-old hunk shared, "You know, I'm getting used to it. The first couple days it was a little weird. I mean, I was brushing my teeth and the camera was there."

Confused Jones said, "I thought the bathroom was off-limits," to which Lochte explained without much success, "Well, I guess there's like, uh, there's like, uh, there's like a mirror, with a sink and then you've got the bathroom, so you've got to separate..."

After ending the interview, the two Philly anchors couldn't help but burst into laughter. "Seriously, how are they going to put together ... 13 weeks of programming?" Jerrick asked while Jones, still laughing uncontrollably, said, "My lash is gonna come off." She added, "He is good looking... We're going to get in trouble for this!"

Lochte's reality show "" will premiere Sunday, April 21 at 10 P.M. EST on E!. It will follow the athlete as "he prepares for the Rio games in 2016 while building his fashion line, making buzz-worthy media appearances, dealing with his unconventional family and loyal friends and, always, searching for 'the one'."
