We could get past the grill and the one-night stands and even the spitting, but peeing in the pool may be a deal breaker, Ryan Lochte.

The Olympic swimmer revealed to Ryan Seacrest that he does relieve himself in the water while he swims. “Of course. I think there’s just something about getting into chlorine water that you just automatically go. [I didn’t] during the races, but I sure did in warm-up.”

Since you swim faster in cold water, maybe that’s why he lost to Michael Phelps in their final head-to-head matchup?
