Lochte Has Gone Off the Deep End

Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte went through the ringer after causing an international incident in Rio at the Olympics this year. He faced a lot of criticism and protest, most notably when two men rushed the stage for him on Dancing with the Stars. he has has a rough go of it lately, and he desperately wants things to go back to how they were before the gas station incident last summer.

But, it looks like this series of events has gotten the best of Lochte. He made more than a few questionable decisions since he came back to the states, and it is safe to say he may have reached the point of no return. Lochte recently bought an engagement ring for Playboy model Kayla Rae Reid, and said that he could propose to her today after knowing her since only January. Bold move to propose to anyone after knowing them for only a few months, very bold move to propose to a Playboy model in general. He also seems to have found himself a new life-coach of sorts on Dancing with the Stars, Vanilla Ice. Lochte said that he is a huge fan and was very excited to get to interact with him on the show. Vanilla Ice said he has been giving Lochte life advice throughout their time spent together: "I kind of told him, "Put it together, man. Yesterday’s history and tomorrow’s a mystery." Lochte has praised Vanilla Ice for being very kind to him on set, and said he even delivered a pep talking following the incident with the two anti-Lochte protesters on the show.

Listen Lochte, you screwed up, monumentally. There are ways to come back from this, but I'm just going to go ahead and say that marrying a Playboy model who you met in January and getting your life advice from Vanilla Ice, isn't the best way to try to build your life back to where it was. Lochte just needs to lay low for a little bit and only put himself in the spotlight while he is swimming. I'm afraid with these moves Lochte went off the deep end, if he wasn't already.
