  1. Eww at the pornstache. 2-Day stubble is much better if he wants to look a little more grown-up, though he looks just fine clean-shaven. Isn't that supposed to help in swimming anyway?

  3. I think he looks fine either way. I remember the last big Olympics he was in (the one where he was supposed to win everything then didn't) and all the commercials were showing him shirtless shot from below. Yum.

  6. Stop being prissy and criticizing him for not looking like an A&F model, James. He's hot BECAUSE he makes his own rules.

  7. Totally in the 'stache park. Hair needs to be back and the shaved blonde boy look should be banished. Thanks for the large tony tip off although I don't quite understand what's happening there.

    Just do a search on Mark Spitz the former sex god of swimming to see what we have lost.

  10. Did he just have a shaving accident? So ugly with the half-beard-half-moustache thing.

  11. Way sexier with the mustache. Guess that makes him an otter?

  12. mustache or not, he is sexy because he is the greatest athlete walking the earth.

  13. Just because you can grow facial hair, doesn't mean you should. His isn't thick enough, and it looks really silly because it's shaped wrong.

  14. he is absolutely adorable, stache and all!

  15. I really love his body. So lithe and naturally toned. I've always thought he was sexy in a dorky way, but i'm not in love with the stache. Not that I would throw him out of bed with or without it though.

  16. Who's looking at the 'stache? Ok, a little hard to miss in the first two photos, but I mean really, Michael Phelps is all about the perfect swimmer's body. Hope that stays as revealed as possible throughout the Olympic season.

  17. The boy could smear chocolate pudding snacks on his face and he'd still look good. (I feel the same way about Large Tony, too!)

  18. Swimmers grow hair out months before they race, girls don't shave their legs, guys their facial hair, this is probably leading up to Olympic trials or to the Olympics themselves...it's probably normally even worse then that be happy he trimmed it.

  19. Ewww! He has fingers and toes?!? OMFG, that is so not hawt.

  20. He is just TOO hot for words! Oh, to see him and Large Tony, together, naked, in bed!
