Long before he was hanging loose with Prince Harry, Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte was living a life of debauchery and unkempt tresses, all documented on his Facebook page. It’s not pretty.
Following a tag from his sister Megan Jean Lochte Torrini’s Facebook account, The Observer found itself down the rabbit hole of Mr. Lochte’s year before the 2012 Olympics. Pimp cups! Blinged-out grills! Drake! More grills! Really, really terrible hair! If one wanted, one could follow the transformational timeline from this guy to this guy in exactly one year. But since it’s Friday and we know you want to go home, we’ve compiled the best photos for your perusal. Enjoy!
