Ryan Lochte reveals relationship secrets on TV show

Published On May 6, 2013 | By Kimberly Petalas

On his reality show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do?, swimmer Ryan Lochte revealed some pretty big secrets, but the biggest so far came out Sunday night.

Apparently, the Olympic heartthrob has had a girlfriend for four years!

The show only referred to Lochte’s long-time love as Jaimee, and Lochte admitted that he usually only gets to see her when he is in London. The distance made for an on-again/off-again relationship, but perhaps the relationship is on-again as she traveled to his home in Florida for a visit.

On the show, Lochte attempted to cook a romantic meal for Jaimee, but the couple ended up sharing pizza and salad, as Lochte revealed that he couldn’t actually cook and had attempted it only twice before.

Jamiee also accompanied Lochte and his family to a swim meet in Orlando during his visit.

Before opening up to the world about Jaimee, Lochte was regarded internationally as the stereotypical bachelor ready to party and meet plenty of women. During the London Olympics, Lochte told Sports Illustrated he was going to do the Olympics right by being a single-and-ready-to-mingle man.

His mother raised some eyebrows when she said he only has one-night stands and not relationships. She later told the media that she meant he only takes a girl on a date or two and doesn’t want to get involved in a relationship because he doesn’t have time and doesn’t want to string girls along.

I’m sure plenty more secrets will be revealed on the next episode, which is on Sunday, May 12 at 10:30 p.m. on E!
