Video: Fox29 anchors howl after interview with Ryan Lochte

'Good Day' hosts crack up over the swimmer's goofiness

Video: Fox29 anchors howl after interview with Ryan Lochte

Travel Deals

Ryan Lochte may be fast in the pool, but he’s pretty slow on the uptake. Sheinelle Jones and Mike Jerrick, the anchors of Fox29’s Good Day found that out this morning – to their uncontrollable amusement.

The Olympic swimmer came on during the 8 o’clock hour via satellite to promote his new E! series, What Would Ryan Lochte Do? The interview, as you can in the clip below, went south in a big hurry.

Lochte answered questions with questions. That is when he could think of anything to say.

The anchors try hard to keep a straight face, until the satellite feed is killed, but then they crack up big time. “How are they going to put together 13 weeks of programming?” marvels Jerrick, who has to take a stiff shot of oatmeal to stop laughing.

But it’s Jones who really loses it. She’s laughing so hard that she actually starts crying.

If this clip doesn’t make you want to watch Lochte’s show, nothing will.
