But, just because he would be dancing instead of swimming, it doesn't mean he still wouldn't be up to battle it out with teammate Michael Phelps.

"I mean since I am so used to competing against Michael Phelps, yeah, I'd have him on the show," he said, according to iVillage.

Though, he told Sports Illustrated, he's not sure whether Phelps would join him on the show, saying he "wouldn't bet on it."

So who would he like his partner to be?

Lochte told SI.com any of the female professional dancers would be just fine, because they all are attractive.
