Michael Phelps still has his epic #PhelpsFace in him! The Olympic gold medalist remade his angry mug on ‘The Tonight Show’ on Sept. 1. He said he knew from the moment he made the scowl during the Rio Olympics that it would break the internet. Click to WATCH!
“As I’m making a face, I’m like, ‘Yep, that’s on camera.’ Someone will pick that up tomorrow,” Michael, 31, told Jimmy Fallon, 41, on The Tonight Show. After Jimmy gifted Michael with a life-size cut-out of his #PhelpsFace, Michael remade the face that was seen around the world. It wasn’t as good as the original, but he gets a gold medal for the effort.
Jimmy joked about Michael’s Olympics face, “Not only is he going to beat me at swimming, he’s going to murder me.” LOL!
Michael was totally in the zone when he made his nasty #PhelpsFace before his semifinals heat for the 200m butterfly at the Rio Olympics. Many believed Michael was making that face to rival Chad Le Clos, 24, but he was just getting his mind ready for the big race!
Michael also talked about his son, Boomer, who stole the show at the Rio Olympics. Michael revealed that he’s the one that runs Boomer’s adorable Instagram account. His fiancee, Nicole Johnson, 31, takes the photos, but Michael is the one who does all the posting. He’s one proud daddy!
“He’s definitely going to be the cool kid,” Michael told Jimmy. Boomer now has over 670,000 followers on Instagram. “He’s got to be the most followed baby in the world!” Michael proudly said. Later, Jimmy and Michael also played a fun game of Egg Russian Roulette. Unlike the Olympics, Michael LOST! That’s something we don’t see very often!
