The exceedingly popular Olympic swimmer got an exceedingly unusual gift from sponsor Gillette
What do you give Ryan Lochte, the man who seemingly has everything — or, at least, has five Olympic gold medals under his belt? You give him a gold and diamond-encrusted razor, of course.
Shaving company Gillette recently signed on Olympic gold medalist Lochte as a spokesperson — a terrific "get" considering the swimmer's near universal popularity. And to celebrate its endorser's success, the company wanted to send him a present: the golden, diamond-heavy pair of razors above. We're not sure we'd be able to do something so utilitarian as shaving with something that costs more than our house, but we suppose being the best in the world has its privileges.
No word on whether or not the Olympian has used his new gift, but we'd imagine it's only a matter of time if he hasn't. After all, if Lochte is going to make a splash on Dancing With the Stars as he says he'd like to do, he's going to need a handsome well-shaven face for that extra voting edge, right?
