Olympic hero, Michael Phelps, 23, is as famous for rocking a Speedo as he is for winning 8 straight gold medals at the Beijing Olympics.

But on Sept. 5, Phelps got himself one other thing: a fake tan! The swimmer paid a visit to Palms Place's Sunset Tan in Las Vegas, where he got himself spray-tanned.

And afterward? A record-breaking dinner of chicken, shrimp, crab legs and lobster tails at N9ne Steakhouse.

Next up for Phelps? A well-deserved homecoming to be held on Oct. 4 in Baltimore, Md. The Olympic champ and fellow swimmer Katie Hoff will be thrown in their honor, including an afternoon parade that will head south toward the neighborhood Phelps grew up in and where his mother, Debbie, still lives.
