In case you missed it, it was a red, white and blue jewel-encrusted flag.
Paul Wall happens to know just how much Lochte’s grill is worth — because he made it. It turns out it’s not Ryan’s first foray into the grill-themed world. Paul has made three others for the gold medalist.
“Every diamond is set one by one, it’s valued at $25,000.” Wall said. “Of course, we didn’t charge him that. He’s a repeat customer so we hooked him up, and he’s an Olympian so we had to show him love there.”
Wall said it’s an honor to not only see his grill on the Olympics, but to have it worn by a dedicated, hardworking athlete.
“The tremendous dedication that these athletes put into [the Olympics] is so respected,” he said. “We got so moved by this, we decided anyone from Team USA that wins a gold medal, we’ll give them a free gold grill.”
