Fourth-Place Medal

Ryan Lochte ‘acts’ on ’90210,’ has medals stolen by Kristen Bell (VIDEOS)

Ten seconds into his television acting debut, Ryan Lochte was already shirtless and had uttered his catch phrase, "Jeah!"

The five-time London medalist will play himself in an upcoming episode of "90210." We'd go into plot details, but you don't care. You either want to see him shirtless or to see how well-versed he is in acting's Donaghy Method.

Verdict: Lochte is to Donaghy like Brando is to Stanislavski.

It's been a week full of firsts for Lochte. On Thursday, he appeared on "The Tonight Show." Lochte is so laid back he makes Phelps seem like Missy Franklin.

While on the show, actress Kristen Bell stole Lochte's medals.

Lochte seems confounded by the words Bell spoke. Can't say I blame him; I'd also turn into a puddle of nerves if Veronica Mars ever chatted me up.

Also, if Lochte isn't the next "Bachelor," then we've failed, America. We've failed.
