Telling Us Weekly about his involvement in the project, the swimmer said of his own experience with mental health:

"For me, it was all about being vulnerable. I think it's scary for a lot of people to think about that word. I just wanted to change. I was to the point where I didn't like who I was. I didn't like looking at myself like seeing the reflection that you see in the mirror. I kind of just tackled it head-on."

As you may know, Phelps past struggles included DUIs and a stint in rehab.

Michael Phelps HAS to be part shark.

We mean, the Olympian can't be human, especially after he raced against a number of sharks for Phelps vs Shark: Great Gold vs Great White. Okay, so the gold medalist didn't ACTUALLY race alongside a Jaws type beast, but his swimming skills were tested next to virtual versions of certain sharks.

Now, the Discovery Channel made it perfectly clear that Phelps wouldn't be swimming side-by-side with live sharks during the Shark Week race, yet fans were still baffled by the situation. Many noted on Twitter:

Ryan Lochte Is Off The Hook For Lying About Rio Robbery!

Ryan Lochte can breathe a sigh of relief…

As we reported, during the Rio Olympics last summer, the swimmer lied to authorities when he said he was robbed at gunpoint by men pretending to be cops. In actuality, the "robbers" were gas station security guards who stopped Lochte and teammates Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger, and Jimmy Feigen for vandalizing property.

The gold medalist was charged with falsely reporting a crime.

Fast forward to Friday, the 32-year-old has been cleared of all charges.

According to the judge, Lochte told the fabricated story AFTER cops approached him for questioning. Thus, he never set out to lie.

Since the incident, the athlete got engaged to model Kayla Rae Reid in October 2016, and they had their first child Caiden Zane Lochte in June of this year.

Everyone make sure your man is in the cage and your cage is in the water — because Shark Week is almost upon us!

The annual Discovery programming block is turning 29 this year, but you'd think it was 12 with this latest stunt: Michael Phelps is racing a shark!

The Olympic gold medal swimmer is testing his aquatic speed against the ultimate swimming (and killing) machine in the form of a great white shark in the upcoming special entitled Phelps Vs. Shark: Great Gold Vs. Great White.

We have no idea how the Sunday, July 23 special will pull off the race, though we can probably guarantee Phelps won't be racing for his life. Probably. According to the promo:

"They are one of the fastest and most efficient predators on the planet: Sharks. He is our greatest champion to ever get in the water: Michael Phelps. 39 world records. 23 Olympic golds. But he has one competition left to win. An event so monumental no one has ever attempted it before. The world's most decorated athlete takes on the ocean's most efficient predator: "Phelps V Shark" – the race is on!"

We are so down to see this! Will YOU be tuning in??
