Ryan Lochte wants the world to know one thing about him: He’s single. Despite rumors that he’s been dating Playboy Playmate Kayla Rae Reid, Lochte assured fans that he is very much available in a Today show segment. And you probably have a chance with him because he’s “dating actively” — and on Tinder.
It’s “verified,” he says from Rio of his Tinder account. “I bet there’s a [potential mate] right out there. No girlfriend.”
He has been hanging out with Reid in the Olympic Village, so if you do travel to Rio to match with Lochte, be warned — you’re not the only Tinder babe in his life. People reported “The Olympian set fans abuzz over the weekend when he shared a photo on Snapchat of himself with [Reid] sitting in his lap while visiting the Beats House in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with his parents.” Even more damningly, there are photos of Lochte going back months on Reid’s Instagram account. But the two are either keeping an incredibly low profile, or Lochte just isn’t ready to be publicly in a relationship. After all, there are only so many people in the world who can say, “Want to go back to my place and see my gold medals?” and we can bet most of them aren’t on Tinder.
