Ryan Lochte, Chelsea Handler Interview: Swimmer Talks Settling Down And Being A 'Man In The Morning'

Not sure if you've heard, but Ryan Lochte wants to be the next Kim Kardashian. It's not clear that his dream has come true -- yet -- but with the premiere of his reality TV show "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" in April, he's certainly working on it.

In another step towards the realization of said dream, Lochte dropped by fellow E! star Chelsea Handler's show Thursday night, and the result was pretty incredible. While it's always hard to choose our favorite lines from a Lochte interview -- there are so many memorable utterances to choose from -- we've done our best below. Read through, then watch the full clip above.

LOOK: Five amazing things Ryan Lochte said in less than five minutes

1. On work-life balance
"My philosophy is: if you're a man at night, you gotta be a man in the morning."

2. On that embarrassing thing his mom said
"My mom's old-fashioned... When she said one-night stands, they mean going on a date."

3. On dating burnout
"You know I've done the whole dating game, I've experienced the whole college thing and, you know, I'm over it."

4. Most "Bachelor"-worthy line
"I want to find that one that I could spend the rest of my life with and give my heart to someone."

5. On the limitations of "The Bachelor"
"See on the Bachelor, I feel like you have to choose and I don't want to choose. I want it to come natural."
