If this year's Olympics Games have taught us anything, it's that sometimes hot Olympic swimmers are at their most appealing when they're not talking or expressing themselves.

Bonus points for working in his endorsement deal with Speedo, and extra bonus points for not working in his endorsement deal with Subway.
