She makes the model guest!
Who knew growing up in front of reality TV cameras would make you so natural on set??
On Wednesday night's episode of the reality competition show, Phelps stopped by and the audience instantly jumped to their feet to cheer and chant "U.S.A."!
Hey, the show does have America in the title, we mean, come on!
While he had him on the stage, Nick Cannon had to ask the most decorated Olympian of all time what it felt like winning his final gold medal, to which Michael responded:
Dancing with the Scoundrels???
Ryan Lochte may have won gold at the 2016 Summer Olympics, but that impressive feat was completely overshadowed by the fact that he was caught lying about a robbery that never actually took place while he was in Rio de Janeiro.
Luckily for the swimmer, America is a pretty forgiving nation… as long as you have a platform like Dancing with the Stars to help fix your image, of course!
That's right — according to multiple sources close to the reality TV show, Ryan is in final talks to be competing for the Mirrorball Trophy this September in an effort to make amends for his international embarrassment!
However, the 32-year-old athlete may be the only gold medalist dancing this year… Simone Biles has already been rumored to be part of the DWTS cast, though her work schedule likely won't permit the grueling rehearsal process.
Do u think Ryan can clean up his act when DWTS premieres Monday, September 12 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC??

Ryan Lochte is making another lap of apologies.
The Olympic swimmer feels like he "let down a lot of people" after claiming he and four teammates were robbed at gunpoint at a gas station in Rio, then leaving his teammates behind in Brazil to be questioned while he skedaddled back to the states.
In a new interview with People, the athlete says that his actions have been on his mind lately because he has such "a big heart," explaining:
And now that the competition is over, his punishment for stretching the truth is right around the corner!
Ryan is already having a particularly bad week as he's lost his MAJOR sponsors and reportedly feels like his life is "crumbling", but next the 32-year-old is going to be punished by the United States Olympic Committee!
It was only a few days ago that USOC CEO Scott Blackmun told the press Lochte and his fellow swimmers would face discipline for their actions, but now TMZ reports some sources are worried the punishment won't be fair!
While the studly swimmer's lawyer, Jeff Ostrow, is pretty convinced that the USOC will hand down a fair punishment to his client, those close to the four swimmers believe
The Olympics swimmer recently sat down with Matt Lauer to apologize not even a week after he lied straight to the NBC anchor's face — admitting he acted like a "drunk frat boy" who had "too much to drink" and "exaggerated" the events of the night.
Thankfully, the creative folks behind the YouTube channel Schmoyoho — the people who famously "songified" Antonie Dondson's Hide Yo Kids news clip — gave Lochte's weepy interview the same musical treatment!
Not only did The Gregory Brothers remix the gold medalist's apology into autotuned harmonies, but they also added comments from Today anchors Billy Bush and Al Roker — who viciously chastised Lochte for leaving his teammates in Brazil while he "skedaddled" back to the U.S.
Ch-ch-check Lochte's musical debut in Drunk Frat Boy (below) to hear the ridiculously catchy tune!
Now that the Olympics are finally over, we're having a bit of withdrawal, but thanks to Jimmy Fallon we're getting to see the the gold medal winning women's gymnastics team compete one last time — in Hungry Hungry Humans!
The Final Five ladies may have worked together as a team in Rio, but on The Tonight Show Tuesday night, they had to pair up and face off against each other for a human version of the popular game Hungry Hungry Hippos!
Aly Raisman paired off with Laurie Hernandez, Gabby Douglas coupled up with Madison Kocian, and Simone Biles teamed up with Jimmy to try and collect the most balls. Oh, and let's not forget The Roots' Tariq Trotter did his best playing with guest Donald Glover!
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing game (below) as the Final Five compete against each other!
