    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 is so ugly. I am sure his ears help him to swim fast, they must be like the fish’s fins.

    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.

    Samantha Says:

    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.

    #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.

    Samantha Says:

    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.

    misstee2U Says:

    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….
