I think he actually looks pretty good here, face included. Digging the stubble, it suits him.
Slick and pretty and conventionally handsome, no.
Striking and sexy as fuck, yes.
Thank you, R7. He looks excellent in these pics, including his face. The hair style and stubble suit him very well.
Looks great. I can't wait.
He has tard face and a tiny cock.
The elder-gays are so fucking stupid and/or blind. This guy looks slow.
I don't need lube. I'm perfectly intact.
If he wanted, he could have a 2nd or 3rd career as a Lincoln impersonator. As he ages he is going to look more like him.
That dope-smoking li'l tadpole! Bless his heart!
It's amazing hoe beautifully his face photographs. Because in reality...
The bod's a killer.

How many Olympic gold medals do you have, R10?
Or maybe you're better than everyone else in the world at something else?
Please tell us what it is and post your photo so we can pass judgment on your face and how smart or stupid you look.
Personally, I like accomplished men who are interesting to look at and in great physical shape.
Obviously some of you prefer ken dolls, and that's okay, but nobody becomes a world-class athlete without having plenty of brain power, regardless what R10 thinks.
Thank you Mrs. Phelps
It's amazing how Phelps was able to be arrested for drunk driving AND get caught smoking pot and still maintain his all-American wholesome image and his endorsement deals. That never would have been the case for any other athlete.
R19, I wouldn't say that. He should be going to the Olympics as the golden boy, yet he's lost a lot of high-profile gigs (endorsements & magazine covers) to Ryan Lochte. Seriously, if you were a straight guy, would you want to be on the cover of Vogue--flanked by two hot female athletes--or Details (which has an embarrassingly low readership).
I have a better body than that. So do 75% of the guys at my gym.
[quote]How many Olympic gold medals do you have, [[R10]]?
I don't have any. I work for an organization that helps people in distress better there lives.
As opposed to Phelps who's only accomplishment in life is swimming from one side of a pool to another faster than the next guy.
BIG FUCKIN' DEAL
And anyone who thinks that is something truly is a loser.
R21, I doubt it. Define "better" also. Note that "bigger" does not equal "better".
Forget the lube, OP. You'd better grab the Valtrex instead.
R21. I understand the point you're generally trying to make. However, regarding you and the guys at your gym having a "better body," swimmers can't be overly muscular; otherwise, they woulddn't be able to race through the water at such speed. They need to be long and lean.
So you devote your life to doing good works R21? That's interesting. The thing is ... usually people that do that are very kind and giving.
You, however, sound like a little shit. Dad get you the job?
I like the way Phelps looks. He looks like a big ol' jock. What's wrong with that?
I think it's the best he's ever looked.
They should have pulled his pants down just a little bit more so we could see some pubes.
Aw, darn! No pictures of his big, sexy size 14 feets!
[quote]I have a better body than that. So do 75% of the guys at my gym.
Paired with, in your case it would seem, R21, an ugly mind.
[quote]As opposed to Phelps who's only accomplishment in life is swimming from one side of a pool to another faster than the next guy.
R21 posted this almost 6 hours ago and no one's said "Oh, dear" yet??
Really? Hot? Really?
Not everyone likes guys who resemble the Hulk.
I've been on this board for about 10 years and seen many a stupid post, but R21 takes the cake. You, R21, have to be one of the biggest asshole douchebags around.
Do you have any idea of the amount of training and dedication necessary "to swim from one side of the pool to the other" repeatedly, and faster than any other human being on the planet? Do you and your moronic gym bunny friends have any conception of athletic competition?
[quote]They should have pulled his pants down just a little bit more so we could see some pubes.
He shaves like most people his age, and he has to shave because of his career, dumbass.
[quote]How many Olympic gold medals do you have, [[R10]]?
[quote]He shaves like most people his age, and he has to shave because of his career, dumbass.
R36, did you even look at the pictures? He's not shaven. TRIMMED but not shaven. He shaves for matches, of course.
You seem to have anger issues. Are you in therapy?
Phelps does absolutely nothing for me. I admire his drive and athletic ability, but his body for me is bleh. And his face is a definite minus.
For swimmers, I prefer Lochte's looks.
[quote][R36], did you even look at the pictures? He's not shaven.
He's shaved, and if anything, he would have stubble.
[quote]I don't have any. I work for an organization that helps people in distress better there lives.
Where lives? There lives!
I like to look at pictures of shirtless hot guys more than most people yet Phelps does absolutely nothing for me. I'll be glad when he ages into oblivion and we never have to look at the mug ever again.
It's sad but I never realized it till the person post pointed it out.
Phelps didn't do anything with his life. Geez even a person at McDonalds at least brings food to hungry people.
He can't do anything useful but swim from one side of a pool to another. He probably wouldn't make a good life guard.
Gotta love DataLounge. The only place in the world where winning Olympic gold medals is "doing nothing with your life" and equated to working at McDonalds.
And R43, please post your surely impressive curriculum vitae.
My Father was a professional athlete and it always baffled me the adulation he received and continues to receive for playing a game. He hasn't played in 30 years but still gets fan mail, requests for autographs, and offers to buy his memorabilia. I find it very odd. Swimming the fastest from side to side in the pool, racing your bicycle faster than others, shooting a basketball though a metal hoop or hitting a ball with a bat more consistently than others doesn't really strike me as making a huge contribution to the betterment of our world. Actually, I'm more proud of my Dad for his accomplishments after his pro career.
Phelps does nothing for me...nada...zilch...
Soccer player Mario Götze getting overexcited on holiday
Well said, r7. Lochte is hotter, but I still like Phelps. I've been a sucker for swimmers' builds since high school, when my cross country team shared a locker room with the state championship swim team. I love 'em long & lean.
Most guys at the average gym aren't 6'4". There are no machines to improve height.
"Do you have any idea of the amount of training and dedication necessary "to swim from one side of the pool to the other" repeatedly, and faster than any other human being on the planet? Do you and your moronic gym bunny friends have any conception of athletic competition?"
American jock worship is pathetic. Yeah, it takes a lot of dedication to be an athlete. But a lot of jobs take dedication. Why work hard at something that serves no purpose? Swimming isn't helping anyone. People like you are the reason jocks get away with so much in our culture. Look at all the date-raping jocks on college campuses. Or OJ. Or Rae Carruth. We need to stop enabling these guys just because they can play a sport well.
He's ugly so no lube needed
I prefer the closeted gay with all the tattoos. But I know that's anathema to the DL.
The Voice of the Night
I wish Phelps would have shown a little bit of pubes. Did you notice that Phelps never pulls up his swim trunks when they fall down during his swimming meets?
Btw, when is Details Magazine going to be available for the iPad? I want that Phelps cover on my iPad!
Who's the closeted gay with all the tattoos?
The Voice of the Night
I get a bi vibe from him, could be wrong.
Yeah, uh, okay.. that's what I thought..
He reminds of the main character's boyfriend on Girls - BDF, kinda fug, but the body of death!
So Sue Me
The bitterness of being picked last for gym class teams never really goes away, does it R10/R21, R43 and R51?
R58 has a hard-on for pointless elitism
OMG, in what universe is this man considered ugly? He's got a very masculine face and very strong profile. How is that ugly? Unlike the plastic looking Ken dolls so many of you seem to go for, Phelps looks like he a ton of testosterone coarsing through his veins. I love the bod AND face and think he's hotter than hell.
You know who has tard face real bad? Jamie Oliver.
What, in all that's human, happened to Jamie Oliver!!?
He has Scones-Face.

[quote]OMG, in what universe is this man considered ugly?
Honey, are you new here? Regardless of how attractive a man might be, at least a few posters on here will conclude that he is "hideous" or "totally fugly."
Thanks, VoN.. I knew you'd set the record straight..
r65, just because he's not some dead-eyed pretty boy mannequin, that doesn't mean he's unattractive. I think a lot of gay guys spend too much time in the gym, myself included, and have a warped sense of what attractiveness is. There's more to being good looking than having a juiced up body and perfectly facially symmetrical features.
To me, no matter what his body looks like, and even if he had a pretty face, his attractiveness suffers because he's clearly as dumb as a stump.
The Voice of the Night
If he weren't a world class athlete, I would expect him to be the type who wears sweat pants, touches himself inappropriately, is mesmerized by shiny things, drools, stares vacantly out windows, or kills bunnies because they're soft to pet.
One can only imagine what r70 looks like.
Im like swimmer's bodies, but they just arent as hot as the gymnasts or track athletes. That's where you can find the glorious asses in abundance.
[quote]Im like swimmer's bodies, but they just arent as hot as the gymnasts or track athletes.
I don't recall there being any world-class male gymnasts taller than 5'6" or so. Sorry, but I don't do midgets, even if they have a nice ass.
r73, I was speaking for my tastes. I dont care if a guy is short as long as he has a nice ass.
[quote]Do you have any idea of the amount of training and dedication necessary "to swim from one side of the pool to the other" repeatedly, and faster than any other human being on the planet?
Yes and that is what makes him stupid and you a total douche bag for admiring him.
He is spending all that time to train to do NOTHING. He just swims from one side of a pool to another. That is it. That is NOTHING. That skill is meaningless. It helps no one, it doesn't even have entertainment value, except once every four years.
Yet you admire him? For what? Training 24 years to perfect a skill that is TOTALLY USELESS and MEANIGLESS?
And yet you admire this. He gets paid to do this? At least the bankers that wrote bad mortgages helped a few people in their lives. This guy get's millions for nothing, swimming from one side of a pool to another is NOTHING.
And the only someone that admires this is a total loser.
Hmm...human growth factor makes the chin and the forehead grow freakishly and often causes teeth to buckle: an adult wearing dental braces is a giveaway.
I'd like to see photo's of Phelps from 5 years ago and compare his facial physiognomy.
It's extremely crude and unkind to use the word "tard." Furthermore, his face isn't, just so you know.
No, Phelps looks just like his dad and was also, as a poster upthread asked, was tested for Marfan's. He's got an unconventional face, not one warped by drugs.
I don't care what his body looks like. He has an incredibly homely face and judging from his irresponsible behavior he's an asshole. I'm not going to whack off while looking at pictures of this goon.
R80, you sound like a real Nancy Drew.
He's got quite an ugly face though doesn't he?
Not attractive at all.
no thank you
Michael Phelps needs a good, hard spanking, "tard" face or not. And I think for anyone who fucks his ass, you should leave your dick in there after you cum and shove hard and leave it there until it gets soft, then pull out--wait, maybe before you do, take a piss up his ass as well...a piss enema done naturally without tools! Yes, the spanking he gets should have him bucking and crying uncontrollably. The wholesome boy who drives drunk and smok smok smok!!! BONG! No, he's probably ok but he does have a kind of vacuous aura. I've always said, show me a humble "athlete" and I'll show you a Protestant Pope although r45 did make a good point. And for those of you who thought gym class was loads of useful fun and jocks and athletes should be enabled---FUCK YOU!!!! I mean really hard so that your ass is still a flattened mass of quivering timidity (is that a word, uh, I'm trying to wax dramatically poetic here) a week later!!!
Yeah whoever said he'll be good at Abraham Lincoln look-alike contests someday kinda hit it on the noggin. Got some chuckles out of it.
Is he GAY?
Lube in hand and ready for all those hard and hung swimmers
Poor guy unless things turn around this year may not be his
r88 we hope so
Hes a butter face
WHo cares about his face? I'd have mine buried in his hot, tight ass and would stuff my cock in his face at the same time.
i need his cock in my mouth
Say what you want bitches, I've give anything for him to wrap me in big long arms
19 medals wow
20 is this guy going for more
That picture of Jamie Oliver made me laugh out loud.
[quote] He is spending all that time to train to do NOTHING. He just swims from one side of a pool to another. That is it. That is NOTHING. That skill is meaningless. It helps no one, it doesn't even have entertainment value, except once every four years.
It may be nothing in your opinion, but he founded the Michael Phelps Foundation with the $1 million bonus he received from Speedo after winning his 8th Gold Medal in Beijing. He actively supports the Bid 2 Beat AIDS and the Boys & Girls Clubs, among many others. It might not be anything to swim but he is doing some good things with his money.
He Just won another
R101, so what? He's wealthy from swimming around in a pool. He does some philanthropy. Good for him. But that doesn't change the fact that his life has been devoted to fame and fortune, and that this entailed swimming, swimming, swimming. Not exactly a life full of wonder.
is he back in the usa
to think he almost lost all his medals because of the lious viutton ad
