Move over, Keeping up with the Kardashians. There’s a new show that will be rich with punch lines for The Soup. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte — who has already appeared as himself on 90210 and as a sex-idiot on 30 Rock — will now be starring in his own realty show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do?

In the extended, four-minute trailer published this week by Entertainment Weekly, the 28-year-old swimmer and 11-time Olympic medalist explains how to pronounce his trademarked word, “Jeah!,” and does a victory pose in front of the Lincoln Memorial. He dishes about his “one-night stands“, though he says he’s still looking for his soul mate — while clubbing in LA.  Not only will we get Lochte — shirt on, shirt off, wearing an onion ring necklace — but we’ll get to meet his whole family, including his mom, who also says “Jeah!”  Viewers will get to watch him burp a baby, blows on his mom’s hair, and bang around the golf course with his bro-assistant. Even his beanie-wearing swim coach gets a few words, yelling at Lochte in the pool: “Too Slow!”

But can any reality show sum up Lochte better than this statement he made during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London? “What defines me? Ryan Lochte.”

What Would Lochte Do? premieres on Sunday, Apr. 21 at 10 p.m on E!
