    His arm looks weird, like it was photoshopped on. And his other hand looks deformed. Bad picture. Amanda Beard seems incredibly b*tchy.

  2. MonicaBee says:

    I don’t find him to be very attractive at all. He’s got an underbite and his top teeth seem to be weird as well. I mean, his body is niiiiiiice, but still.

    I’m a teeth girl. I can’t help it. Those teefs are a deal breaker for me. Sorry, Michael.

  3. Syko says:

    I don’t think he’s good looking, but he’s a nice kid and doesn’t deserve her very public dissing. She’s a jerk.

  4. Snowblood says:

    I I ever met Amanda Beard, I’d – oh, what would I do? *thinks* I’d WANT to slap the meanbitch valley-girl out of her, I’d WANT to hurt her feelings and humiliate HER as much as she did to this young guy, who did NOT deserve such public ugliness.

    I mean, “Ew?” Over and over again? What is she, in Sherman Oaks Middle School’s seventh grade remedial program? ๐Ÿ™„

  5. Atticus says:

    I don’t find him unattractive at all. Perhaps not conventionally handsome but seems like such a good person that he seems physically more attractive. I actually think he looks hot on the cereal cover. Looking at the thumbnail of that SI cover, I thought he was wearing some goofy halter top of some sort. Amanda Beard sounds like a total bitch. It’s one thing to joke but that was just mean.

  6. notprfect says:

    Michael isn’t my type either, but mostly because he looks SOOOO young. I’d feel like a cradle robber even though he’s only 5 years younger than me.

    What’s-her-face is U.G.L.Y. HE’S not HER type? Well, maybe, b*tch, you’re not HIS type. Maybe HE doesn’t date ugly chicks with bad attitudes. Ever think of that, what’s-your-face? ๐Ÿ˜•

    Seriously, though, I saw a pic of her & Michael hugging and I thought “Who’s that ugly girl with him?” and THEN I came to this article and found that she has an ugly personality to match her ugly face. Interesting.

  7. RaeJillian says:

    funny they are all mad about this dude and sugar but the mc donald ads that are running constantly during the olympics are okay! hah!

  8. KPC says:

    Okay, Why was Amanda so rude in her interview?

  9. Ron says:

    Who? Yeah who is she exactly? who? Sister, EVERYONE knows who Mike is. He seems like a pretty grounded decent guy too. But, as we all know, so many women say ewwww to nice grounded guys. But…Mike has about 30-50 million in endorsement deals on the way. So many women say yes to that.

  10. huh says:

    I think her comments were incredibly rude. Even if she is joking she should know, having been in the public eye for more than one Olympics, how they’ll be taken.

    I think Michael has very nice eyes but I think if he had a good orthodontist he’d be VERY good looking. His jaw is very narrow and an orthodontist would fix that and straighten his teeth, I think he’d look great.

  11. jaundicemachine says:

    RJ – You took the words out of my snaggletoothed mouth!

  12. llana says:

    gosh, leave the kid alone…he is a world class swimmer, he seems like a nice kid, and I think I’m going to run out and buy a box of Frosted Flakes. As Tony the Tiger says, “They’re Great” and so is Michael Phelps.

  13. Nan says:

    lani-poo, come on now!

  14. Kristen says:

    I’m finding it hilarious that people are upset about the Frosted Flakes thing — I mean, the guy is eating 12,000 calories a DAY to train the way he does, and much of it isn’t all that healthful. But obviously, it works for him. He’s a perfect role model in a million ways, and I love him, but he’s not exactly a role model for healthy eating.

    Oh, and I would love to give Amanda Beard a piece of my mind. Man, what an attitude.

  15. Bodhi says:

    His arm looks wierd because its double-jointed. Both of them are & thats part of the reson he is a swimming mutant. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I don’t think she was being that bitchy. They’ve been teammates for years. She prolly sees him as an obnoxious little cousin or something.

  16. gg says:

    I betcha little miss sunshine is hearing the flak from her crass blabbermouth right about now.

  17. Carol says:

    Kelloggs is based in Battle Creek, Michigan not that far from where he trains in Ann Arbor at U of M and maybe he wanted to be on a Kelloggs box instead of General Mills, which is in Minnesota.

  18. Carena says:

    This skank poses for Playboy and thinks she’s all that? Let me tell you something, that old chick Paula Jones posed in Playboy. It doesn’t mean you are hot, it just means you have plastic bits and don’t mind taking your clothes off for a camera. Michael Phelps might not be the hottest guy around, but at least his hot body is all his and not some crap the surgeon bolted on.

  19. SeVen says:

    I think hes cute… would I date him if he were a regular joe on the street working a 9-5? Hell yes.

    That amanda chick… someone drown her.

  20. dizzybenny says:

    “keeps is private life private”= flaming gaylord!!! ๐Ÿ˜›

  21. Carrie says:

    I so agree, Monicabee.If the teeth are wrong, all bets are off.

  22. Senorita says:

    Well all I can say to Michael is “You are a beautiful man inside out” why? because you love your mother and respect her so lady’s this man has class like no other….YOU ARE A CHAMP IN MY HEART….You will have a good life. God Bless you and thanks for making the U.S.A PROUD! =)

  23. Senorita says:

    Amanda, yes so they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder but who’s your daddy! The comments you made were not nice I hope you apologize to Michael let’s hope you do have some class and b a lady for once?

  24. Marie says:

    I admit I didn’t know who she was so I googled her image and found her Playboy cover and hte first thought to enter my mind was, “Wow, it’s Alexis Arquette from The Wedding Singer!”

  25. Megan says:

    Yeah, nice body but not-so-nice face. I don’t like really long faces in men.

  26. dizzybenny says:

    loved by his mom+keeps life private(oooooh, like Clay Aiken and Ricky Martin back in the day),likes to wear tight rubber or latex clothing,not one hair on the body and looooves Frosted….Flakes.not just any flake,but the “frosted” one.
    yep gaylord ๐Ÿ˜†

  27. poky says:

    oh good lord, she was joking. they’re friends. catch a sense of humour

  28. CC says:

    He was friends with one of my friends at Michigan and apparently he slept around with LOTS of women. He jumped from sorority house to sorority house.

  29. tp Vero says:

    You know fame has it’s downside. Just because you are good at say, swimming, the whole world has the right to pry into your private life. I don’t see the correlation, but I suppose it would put a lot of people out of business if it were not the case. The guy is a champ, he has some class about his private life and there are morons who call him gay because of it. And then I would have to say “so what” or perhaps… “Hey moron… can you even swim?” Let the guy have his moment. He trained hard for it and overcame many social obstacles in the process. Hi is not a beauty contestant either.

  30. Kaiser says:

    I think it’s great that Phelps would endorse a product he *gasp* actually eats.

    And as for Beard – yeah, I want to punch her in the face.

  31. Abby says:

    Lol, Kaiser – she definitely needs to get punched in the face!

  32. pissoff says:

    Who the hell cares? He cashed in, either way.

    Nobody actually believes that athletes are trying to promote proper nutrition when they sign endorsement deals with Wheaties.

    The guy east McDonald’s every day for the calories.

  33. spoonman says:

    USA! USA! USA!

    Michael Phelps is a true american hero. Anything he does outside of swimming is to pay the bills. He gets paid nothing to swim for the USA and we should care he endorses more than one product??? It wouldn’t be a far stretch to think he eats all 3 cereals every day. He does have a 12,000 calorie diet…

    So what if he wants to make money and capitalize on his fame the only way an olympic athlete can without ruining their eligibility!

    Anything Michael Phelps does to make a buck I’ll support.

    USA! USA! USA!

  34. browning says:

    Has anyone ever seen Amanda Beard though?? Sexpot?! In my opinion is quite a stretch for her. I was thinking more along the lines of horse. Maybe its just me.

  35. Thumbelina says:

    Aw, I like him, toofs and all. I used to swim competively in high school and am in awe of how skilled he is.

  36. Sprite7777 says:

    Some of y’all must be related to the kids who teased Michael while he was growing up.

    Which is what he is still doing, growing up. He’s a young man, not finished. Maybe not your cup of tea, but golly, admire him for being a wonderful young man, an Olympian. Could you do that? We’re all so perfect. He is closer to perfection than any of us, double joints and all.

  37. Jeanne says:

    Leave him alone. Who cares about who he’s bonking anyway? It all pales in comparison to his winning 8 gold medals.
    Amanda Beard looks more mature with a litte mileage. She looks too old for Michael. If anyone, I’d see him more with Natalie Coughlin. They both have that all-American look.
