15 MINUTES OF FAME

Sports is the ultimate "unscripted TV." No wonder so many athletes, such as Jose Canseco), have appeared on reality shows.

Michael Phelps' flirtation with making a return to the pool for the 2016 Olympics has certainly generated plenty of buzz. And while he has not committed to a return to competitive swimming, it's hard to imagine anybody being against the most successful Olympian of all time returning to the pool, except his opponents.

And a 63-year-old retired track & field legend (who also happens to be the father of America's most dysfunctional reality TV family).
