Ryan Lochte on approaching actress Blake Lively: "I would be like, 'Hi'...I’d be like, 'You want to go to an island with me?'”

Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes one of the breakout stars of the 2012 Summer Olympics – swimmer Ryan Lochte – for a revealing and entertaining face to face conversation.

On the heels of collecting five medals in London – including a pair of gold's – the Florida-product joins Piers Morgan to reflect upon his rapid rise to stardom, and the overwhelming attention – particularly from his female fans – that has followed:

"If I could take you to a desert island it would be perfect for you, because you could swim all day long," begins the host. "A desert island and you could choose one famous woman to spend the rest of your life with, who would you take right now?"

Pausing briefly to ponder his options, Lochte eventually commits to a fellow twenty-something heartthrob:

"Right now, Blake Lively," says the man celebrating his 28th birthday Friday. "Yeah, she is gorgeous."

Having never met the "Gossip Girl" starlet, Lochte reveals his potential pick-up line:

"I would be like, 'Hi.' I’d be like, 'You want to go to an island with me?'”

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening at 9 p.m. as the man who's trained against Michael Phelps for eight years attempts to explain what his mom meant when she said "Ryan only has time for one-night stands at the moment."

    Stealing candy is not how you get to heaven or make bread, Ryan. Matty might have cameras and Meredith has a line on Chics.

    Morgan is such a narcistic pinhead. Bring Larry King back, he had such grace and credability but Morgan is such an insult to the viewing public.

    Morgan says that Ryan Reynolds isn't as good looking and couldn't be the swimming talent that Lochte is. Swimming possibly correct but I would love to ask Morgan could you run a New York Marathon?? Reynolds did but Morgan is that fat ass pin head that couldn't get off his sofa without breaking a hemorrhoid. Morgan can talk the talk but definately can't walk the talk. This guy is a loser and no surprise that CNN is losing in the ratings because you have Britains rejects like Morgan and Morgan is the biggest loser one could possibly be.. Bring back Larry King, someone that is fairly intelligent and knows how to conduct interviews.
