Michael Phelps Gave It His All While Racing A Great White Shark — But Was It Enough?

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.

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. Related: Tom Brady Couldn't Love His Girls More 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: Phelps vs the shark is the biggest let down ever — Morgan (@Boats_andMOs) July 24, 2017 When Michael Phelps said he was gonna race a shark this is how I pictured it happening #SharkWeek pic.twitter.com/GiEfJssNhL — Ryan Homler (@RHomler) July 24, 2017 I know it's stupid to think michael phelps was actually going to be racing against a real shark but I'm stupid and upset — Nicole (@nicoleee_adams) July 24, 2017 Me pretending to be ok with Michael Phelps not racing a real shark pic.twitter.com/QnCF98NfBB — Gabi Palamone (@Yo_Gabi_Gabi__) July 24, 2017 Nonetheless, the American athlete put on quite the display as he rocked a monofin and a specially designed wetsuit to take on certain sharks' swim times. While the celebrated sportsman beat a reef shark with a time of 18.7 during a 50-meter race, he came second to a hammerhead who had a time of 15.1. Bummer! So, obviously, when it came to his race with the great white shark, Michael didn't walk away victorious. Although, the 32-year-old only lost by two seconds!! Be sure to ch-ch-check out the footage for yourself (below)!

In the special that aired during Shark Week on the Discovery Channel on Sunday (July 23), the 32-year-old Olympic gold-medalist tested his racing ability against a number of different shark breeds. However, all of the sharks were virtual version and Michael did not actually swim side-by-side with any sharks, but raced CGI version of sharks based on their swim rates in separate races. In the first 50-meter race against the reef shark, Michael won with a time 18.7 seconds. When his time was compared to the hammerhead shark, Michael was defeated as the shark finished the race in 15.1 seconds. For the main event against the Great White Shark, Michael was defeated once again by only two seconds......»»

Jason Statham Kind Of Apologizes For Allegedly Using A Homophobic Slur On Movie Set

Jason Statham is trying to get control of this scandal. On Wednesday, the Spy actor took to Facebook to release a statement regarding an alleged accusation of homophobia against him. Per The Blast, Statham and producing partner Steve Casman got into a heated argument on the set of the '15 flick Wild Card, a confrontation that [...] Jason Statham is trying to get control of this scandal. On Wednesday, the Spy actor took to Facebook to release a statement regarding an alleged accusation of homophobia against him. Per The Blast, Statham and producing partner Steve Casman got into a heated argument on the set of the '15 flick Wild Card, a confrontation that resulted in the former repeatedly using the term "fucking f*gs." Photos: Celebrities Who've Been Accused Of Homophobia! It's said that a man who worked as a consultant on the film, named R.J. Cipriani, notified Jason that he had an audio recording of this fight. Thus, the social media statement regarding the issue. Like we said, in an attempt to downplay this supposed bad behavior, the 50-year-old actor shared: "Someone approached me claiming to have a tape of me using terms offensive to the LGBTQ community during a conversation I had with my producing partner, on a movie set five years ago. I have never heard the recording and my multiple requests to hear the recording have been refused. I have no recollection of making any of these offensive comments. However, let me be clear, the terms referenced are highly offensive. If I said these words, it was wrong and I deeply apologize. Anyone who knows me knows it doesn't reflect how I feel about the LGBTQ community. While I cannot fix what was said in the past, I can learn from it and do better in the future." Sources close to the action movie star have supported his sentiments, claiming he truly does not remember saying "fucking f*gs." However, if he DID utter the homophobic slur, it wasn't meant as a public stance on the LGBTQ community. We like how everyone is rushing to apologize for something he supposedly didn't even say... Anyhoo, Statham's legal team has since rallied around the industry vet, defending that the maybe private conversation should NEVER have been taped without Jason or Steve's consent. As Wild Card was filmed in New Orleans, the recording of a private conversation could be illegal thanks to the Electronic Surveillance Act. The state's law bars any recording or interception of oral or telephonic communication without the prior consent of at least one member of the conversation. Fair, but also, we thought this situation didn't happen in the first place?? Doth protest too much? [Image via WENN.].....»»
