  • becca

    Wow. I don’t usually think Phelps is hot, but with a beard… MAJOR UPGRADE!!!

    Nice.

  • heather

    Hot as always!

  • sick of him

    Talking about chances! a dui walked away from, smoking pot, nothing and now drinking and driving again with out an valid license! Which in most states is 72 hrs to 6 months jail time! Spears had a valid license from another state her home state and the media crucified her! Phelps nothing! Also, once again got behind the wheel of a car drinking! Let’s hope this guy doesn’t hurt or kill some one before he wakes up.

  • what is it with him

    Ok, first the guys gets a dui and then caught smoking weed and then drinking and driving again on an invalid licenses or NO license! What gives? Sick of people like him getting away with more than the average person!

  • omg

    @becca: I have to agree.

    i have yet to watch 1 episode of his show, it sounds kinda crappy
    most of the challenges are pointless

  • Janie

    Keep the facial hair, Michael. You look so good with it.

  • grx

    I never find him hot before, i think he’s ok, but now he looks good with the facial hair!

  • http://n/a lovely

    Haters gone hate! Michael P. looking pretty Hot! He’s only human people and he has every right to ~live~ and learn from his mistakes. I’m hating the whole ~reality~ gig but I’ll probably watch some of the show to see what it’s all about or good enough to continue watching. Honestly, I just want reality television to die altogether!

    @sick of him:

    I am from Baltimore… Phelps was not drinking and driving when he got in the accident. First off the the woman involved ran a red light and hit him, secondly he had 1 beer earlier in the night at the game. Trust me if he was intoxicated Baltimore Police would have arrected him

  • kb

    Sorry meant to say Arrested him

    Sorry meant to say Arrested him
