This Saturday night the Greatest Athlete of Our Time, Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps will host Saturday Night Live. He joins the ranks of many other athletes who have hosted the show before him, but will he be a fish out of water on the stage? (Sorry.) Since he's America's favorite son now, he'll be adored no matter what, and castmember Kristen Wiig is so excited for him to host that she told People: "He's gonna be naked in all the sketches I write, for sure." Maybe he won't be naked, but you know there will be some gratuitous ab shots in there.
