Ryan Lochte Facts
Things you didn't know about the Olympian.
Ryan Lochte’s biggest celebrity crush is becoming a reality.

The Olympic swimmer was spotted getting hot and heavy with Carmen Electra at Hollywood hotspot Bootsy Bellows on Tuesday night, according to an onlooker.

“His arm was around her,” the eyewitness told Celebuzz. “They were full-on making out in front of everyone. They definitely made it seem like they were together.”

Just last year, Lochte, 28, told Celebuzz about his longtime adoration of the actress/model.

“Growing up, I’ve always looked at Carmen Electra,” he said during an interview on The Daily Buzz.

And the former Baywatch babe, who ended her four-year engagement with musician Robert Patterson early last year before being linked to American Idol judge Simon Cowell, was quick to return the compliment.

“I’m flattered that Ryan Lochte has a crush on me,” she told us. “He’s so cute.”

She even foreshadowed their eventual fling, adding, “I am sure our paths will cross soon.”

So how did the two finally hook up?

According to another source, they’d met earlier in the day on the set of the Olympian’s upcoming reality show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do?

“Carmen shot with Ryan for his new show, and they hit it off right away,” said the source. “They had tons of chemistry.”

After meeting Lochte, Electra tweeted him, “So nice to meet u. JEAH!!!”

What Would Ryan Lochte Do? is set to debut on E! on April 21. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it will showcase his “day-to-day activities in and out of the pool, with a focus on his love life, his family and his friendships.”
