I was just thinking the other day that Phelps will no doubt host SNL. Based on interviews, I don’t think he’ll be that good at hosting. The athletes never are. Oh well, I’m excited for the new season of SNL anyway.

He has certainly become a star, he is very talented I like that he shows you don’t have to be gorgeous to be a gorgeous man :)

I take it you use SNL as a method of inducing sleep if you are looking foward to it that much, Caroline. Give me a break.

What’s with the photoshopping of the medals on the cover?

I’m sure he’s doping, just like every other athlete at the Olympics. Not impressed. Plus, he looks like a foot.

why is everybody hating on michael? He’s talented and gracious and I personally think that a lot of girls like him because he comes across as a nice, genuine guy. He never claimed to be God’s gift and when he was informed of his increased hotness status, he looked embarrassed and said that he wasn’t used to it.

oh, and

I HEART PHELPS!

Geesh, people that post on JustJared are so damn rude. The guy just won 8 Olympic gold medals. What else does he have to do to impress some people? And don’t even say, be a Hollywood actor or anyone like the sort. I’m glad he’s hosting SNL. I’m eager to see it. :)

He is going to suck at SNL. But I do want to see Penelope one-up him.

I commend him for his achievements but this is a horrible cover

HE IS SO NOT UGLY!! HE IS THE HOTTEST GUY I HAVE EVER SEEN!! THE ONLY REASON YOU THINK HE IS UGLY IS BEACUSE HE IS EITHER CUTER THAN YOU OR YOUR BOYFRIEND!!! SO SHUT YOUR YAP!!! CAUSE HE IS ON FIRE!!!!

#9 (and #10) – the hell you talking about?! “looking foward to it that much”? Yeah, I’m looking forward to a new season of a show I watch. It doesn’t go any further than that.

Wow, you really read way too much into things.

I agree, it is a horrible cover, but why does he have to look like some gorgeous creature to get accolades? I don’t even think he’s as ugly as people are making him out to be, but we do live in a “I only care about my vanity and how beautiful/handsome I look” society. I wish I lived in the old days when other things were more important than how someone looked.

lmao I know he’s won the most medals ever but seriously no way he won that many xD jk

wow. you can dress the monkey in silk. but it still remains a monkey.
dude. use all the endorsement cash for a little nip and tuck.
(start with the ears)

Oh pls! give me break! I dont want to see that picture ever again.. I am sick of his ego!

misstee2U @ 08/27/2008 at 9:41 pm

damn, mike here come the haters. i wonder if he was the one who suggested li’l wayne…since that’s his favorite rapper apparently….i’m sure he’ll be giving him his props since phelps said he was listening to wayne every time you saw him with the iPod on…hey apple where’s his endorsement! i guess it doesn’t do much for them that he won eight golds….

It’ll be interesting to see Michael Phelps host SNL. I’m definately watching it!

I can’t believe you guys are so mean. I’m speechless with these childish comments. You all need to get a life!!! Grow up!
