Kellogg's must have shelled out BIG bucks!

According to Michael Phelps' agent there will be “no Wheaties box this time around; it’s going to be Kellogg’s” for the winner of 8 Olympic gold medals.

Access Hollywood reports that Kellogg’s confirmed to them that Phelps will appear on both Kellogg’s Corn Flakes and Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes.

Boxes will arrive on store shelves in mid-September.

With his goals at the Games achieved, Phelps’ next moves will reportedly include getting his fans to join him in the pool.

Phelps' agent goes on to tell Access Hollywood, “We’re going to head out on a global media tour and then we’re going to go back to the States and try to make it around 10 or 15 different cities and try to promote the sport of swimming. Michael will see some of the fans that he’s reached over the past week and have some fun."

The Golden Boy's bank account will be shining as brightly as his medals! He deserves it!!

    …screwed? Hope it didn't hurt too much. I Believe You" when you say it didn't. I always considered Frosted Flakes to be the gay Wheaties. Yummy.

    This athlete will take his money to promote health in America to try to curb the growing and alarming obesity that has reached hypedemic proportions both in adult and children. Just watch this guy go !!!

    Well, Kelloggs must have been the highest bidder…because corn and frosted flakes are in no way more nutritional than wheaties (although, Total is even better). Unfortunately, there will always be those who will buy the soggy cereal, simply because Phelps is on the box….and, therefore believe that Phelps got his physique from eating it.



  20. 20

    I would love to wake up and see him on my cereal box.
    Michael Phelpss, always making americaa proud.



  21. 21

    So now maybe some of the people who have up until now bought into the NBC-led media/public relations blitz that is painting Phelpsie-poo as an "aw-shucks boy scout" will see his rue colors. As great an athlete as he may be, this complete disregard of tradition shows Fug-Face for what he is - nothing more than a money-grubbing professional mercenary. You could not be farther from the Olympic ideal of sport for its own sake, without regard for money, if you tried.

    The Wheaies box was a cherished tradition that spans generations of Olympic champions - many common Americans colleccted the boxes and passed them on to their kids. And now, for the sake of a few exra dollars, Plelps and his agent Peter Carlisle at Octagon have pissed all over that piece of Americana.

    Well done, Donkey-Face! I hope you spend the extra money on some prescriptions for Valtrex, Famvir or Zovirax, or all three, so that at least the next stupid bitches that you bang will not catch your herpes…..



  22. 22

    Do you have any more photos of him shot a little further south???



  23. 23

    he also said the one person he wanted to meet was lindsay lohan and she sent him a personal message. but mario forgot to include that!



  24. 24

    Terrific body but a face that could stop time.



  25. 25

    there is something about michael phelps that's so innocent and all american. i didn't even know who he was until the olympics. he just looks like someone who does what he loves and isn't looking to gain any celebrity from it.



  26. 26

    I know it's just 'business' but shouldn't the greatest athlete in recent history be on a Wheaties box? Isn't that just an American thing to do? I think his manager sold him out.



  27. 27

    Frosted Flakes are THE BOMB even without Phelps' face on the box!

    Re: Lula Mae Lou why don't you just shut up. People who have to bring others down is just lame. It's clear you're a miserable person and clearly jealous of what he has accomplished. Instead of putting so much energy hating why don't you become productive and use that energy in a positive way and go volunteer or better yet better you're miserable life… xo



  29. 29

    Re: Lula Mae Lou – I have to agree with you, Lula Mae. I always considered it a 'given' that our best, and brightest, athletes would grace the cover of Wheaties…as it has been done for as long as I can remember. I can understand if Phelps didn't want to endorse a product that he doesn't eat, or believe in…I find that commendable. But, for a high profile athlete to endorse a product, which insinuates that he uses it to aid in his training, stamina and strength (when, in reality, those cereals hold no significant nutritional value)…well, one can bet it was all for the money.
    BTW…I was the one who previously commented as 'anonymous'. I forgot to login, before I left that comment. I just don't want anyone to think that I was stealing or paraphrasing someone else's words, as my own. lol



  30. 30

    To all the assholes who picked on him as a kid……who's got the last laugh now? I hope they all choke on the frosted flakes.



  31. 31

    good for him. now he can move mom out of her trailer.



  32. 32

    Ooh I wish daddy could be here right now…….you can never lose your talent he used to tell me…..you can lose everything else, but you can't lose your talent!



  33. 33

    Re: robbierob – With all due respect…aren't you doing the exact same thing that you are accusing Lula Mae of doing?
    Perhaps Perez can administer an 'ignore poster/commenter' option. That way we can ignore those who disagree with our personal opinions and beliefs, and only read the comments from 'nice, sweet, passive people…who couldn't form an opinion, to save their life'. Oh, and let's not forget all of those who claim to be 'first'….you can read all of those 'comments', since they don't seem to lead 'miserable' lives, do they?
    Sounds kinda boring to me, but….



  34. 34

    I have to say that his body is so smoking hot!! He does not always look bad in the face either. Actually he looks like my ex sometimes. Not totally, just aspects of him.



  35. 35

    I know how he feels, well, except for the money part. I have a rockin' stud face but can't shake these last 15-20 pounds. Nobody is perfect. Shit!



  36. 36

    Zexy….. seriously…



  37. 37

    im so buying kellogs!!



  38. 38

    take it from someone who personally knows him…
    pretty much a huge douche bag.
    yeah he's a great swimmer, but the guy seriously needs an attitude adjustment…
    thinks he's entitled to everything.



  39. 39

    I never bought a box of cereal because of some sport figure on the box. Seriously…



  40. 40

    Frosted Flakes? that's just great- one of the foods full of sugar and simple carbs so that all those little swimmers in training can burn those calories right up! What's that you say- those kids who eat that crap are just going to sit at a desk all day and NOT swim 40 laps for swim team? Uh oh. Time to make them fat little rug rats so they can keep the drug companies coming up with more diabetes drugs! kids are supposed to have PROTEIN for breakfast.



  41. 41

    HELP PEREZ!!!

    How do you know when all this is gonna happen?

    Let mee knoww PLEASE(:

    Re: flyflyfly – He was an absolute arrogant a$$hole on GMA this morning. I'm not so amazed by him. WTF his medals weren't even all his own as some of them were for team races, so why the fuck should he get all the glory? Fuck!!



  43. 43

    Re: HOT4COOK – Excellent point. I never even bothered to research if ALL of Spitz's medals were awarded for individual swims…or, if they also included team relays.
    If all of Spitzs' gold medals were for individual competitions…Phelps' did not break his record, in my opinion.



  44. 44

    Re: Cherry Bomb – LMAO You said it better, than I ever could.



  45. 45
