Who needs Discovery Channel’s annual Shark Week when you can watch Nat Geo Wild’s SharkFest? Well, that's Ryan Lochte's thinking, anyway.
The Olympic swimmer -- who is not Michael Phelps and is not going to be racing a great white shark on Discovery -- is dutifully promoting that other channel’s week-long shark-themed programming. In fact, that’s all the silver-haired athlete-turned-Dancing With the Stars competitor-turned-dad competitor is doing…
In an exclusive look at Nat Geo Wild’s new promo, Lochte begrudgingly embraces the “second best” stature that the channel has accepted for its own shark week, which it says is filled “with first-rate premieres.”
“Besides, No. 1 is a state of mind. Right, Ryan?” the narrator asks in the clip.
While Lochte is, sadly, not going to be facing off against any underwater predators in the imagined Lochte vs. Shark, SharkFest does promise to be a week full of thrills thanks
