Ryan Lochte has a reality TV series and the trailer is sure to compete with excessive alcohol consumption and huffing paint on the list of things that will immediately kill brain cells. 

If you weren't aware, soon the TV schedule will have a lot more Lochte than it had previously, as E! will air the premiere episode of What Would Ryan Lochte Do? on Sunday, April 21. 

If you simply have to sate that Olympic swimmer fix now, here is a brief teaser the network released recently. 

Aside from a sudden hankering for one of the best hot dogs in Los Angeles, Pink's, things are about as you would expect. 

Lochte shouts "Jeah" and some fans do the same and there is a little piece of me that dies in the process. 

However, there is a much longer exclusive trailer that you can view at Entertainment Weekly right now. There, the hope you once had for the future will be destroyed. But, you know, enjoy and stuff. 

First, we get a few seconds of explanation on the word "Jeah," which feels like a few hours of instruction. At the 20-second mark, Lochte want to make sure you put the "emphadince" on the "J" of the word.

We then get a look at some swag as the name "Lochte" gets stated seven times in 10 seconds, which may lead to nose bleeds. 

Then there is a close look at Lochte the player, which should have most of the females in the audience swoon. If not, whatever, because the women just come to him. Oh, and then there is a beautiful bromance to consider. 

After four minutes of trailer, we get the guarantee the show will feature everything we have come to expect from the Olympic swimmer. There will be slurred words, confusion and awkward pick-up lines, and all while Lochte is completely sober. 

Seeing as how you all eat up the Kardashians and Honey Boo Boo, I will go ahead and assume this will be the biggest hit of 2013. 

And that makes me very sad.
