OK!: What's the craziest thing you've filmed thus far that you're afraid to show on camera?

Ryan Lochte: I’m not scared to show anything. I went into this series wanting to be totally uncensored. On the flip side, I had a camera in my face pretty much 24/7. And of all those hours of filming, you get 30 minutes a week, so you never know what will end up making air.

OK!: Does filming the show ever get in the way of your swim training?

RL: I’m trying to balance both worlds the best I can, but swimming will always take top priority.

OK!: What's your favorite show other than your own?

RL: To be honest, I don’t have a ton of time for TV right now, or movies (which I love). I am training for WORLDS right now. But when I get the time, I’m more of a boxed-set TV watcher. I still love Entourage… and I love Suits.
