There has been a lot of Michael Phelps ogling here at Ladies… recently.
I am not one of those oglers.
This is not because I’m not a fan of his athletic accomplishments, or because I can’t acknowledge that Phelps is a good looking young man (apologies for channeling my grandmother there). Since the Athens Olympics, however, I have become obsessed with the striking resemblance the most decorated Olympian of all time bears to my youngest brother. It’s very difficult to find someone hot when every time you look at them, you are reminded of a blood relative.
Anyway, Phelps isn’t the only Olympic medalist who reminds me of someone else. More athletes and their (actually famous and not related to me in any way) dopplegangers after the jump.
Russian diver Dimitri Sautin and Rob Corddry
One has one seven Olympic medals, one has made Jon Stewart crack up a lot. It’s a wash, really.
Natalie Coughlin and Denise Richards:
Denise, forget the reality show and get your agent to start pitching a Natalie Coughlin biopic. Trust me, it’s a better career move.
Ryan Lochte and Andy Samberg:
Ryan Lochte and Jason Segal:
Andy and Jason are both vying for the starring role in a new romantic comedy about an Olympic swimmer backstroke champion who gets into all kinds of romantic hijinks on his first trip to the barbershop in eight months. It’s called Finding Ryan Lochte.
