The Olympics may be over, but we’re holding on to memories of cheering on our favorite athletes for dear life. There’s something truly beautiful about the Olympic Games and how it unites a country (and gives us something to talk about in an awkward elevator encounter). We do not want to say goodbye! That’s why we spent today looking for ways to indulge in the games for just a little while longer. Something tells us some of the Games’ breakout stars will never be too far from our radar! For now, here are 10 of our favorite ways to not let go of the 2012 Summer Olympics:
1. Ryan Lochte will be appearing on an upcoming episode of the CW’s 90210. He will cross paths with recently reunited couple Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) and Max (Josh Zuckerman) at a resort, where they are attempting to strengthen their relationship. For his sake, we hope he acts better than he interviews!
2. Have you seenMichael Phelps in the new Louis Vuitton ad? If your answer is “Hmmm I don’t remember…” then no, you haven’t seen it because it is definitely unforgettable! Michael Phelps has proven to be more than just a trendy athlete to love. He overcame a bad reputation and is now only regarded of as the most decorated Olympian of all time.
3. We can’t get enough of the McKayla Maroney Is Not Impressed meme, and we know it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Her unimpressed face photobombs the most perfectly chosen images throughout the day. McKayla got in on the fun when Aly Raismantweeted this photo of Maroney, Kyla Ross and herself standing outside a closed swimming pool.
It’s already big week for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. After showing serious skin alongside boyfriend Jason Statham at the 2011 Met Gala, the model-turned-Transformers 3-star scored the top spot on Maxim‘s Hot 100. She’s been hopping around NYC since, sometimes looking ready for a fashion shoot, other times just strolling out in a t-shirt and jeans like above. Enjoy the attention, Rosie—if you pull off replacing Megan Fox in Dark Of The Moon this could just be the beginning of a skyrocketing career. And if you flop, it could all be downhill from here.

The FABLife is playing March Celebrity Madness this month, putting 64 of our favorite stars into brackets and having you vote to decide our ultimate FAB icon. First we’ll be pitting four similar celebs against each other in the divisionals, with the winners pairing (and squaring) off in our Sweet 16 until only one is left standing. It’s just like the NCAA, except…ok, it’s nothing like the NCAA.
Who doesn’t love a studly, soulful man comfortable with snapping necks in a heartbeat (at least on screen)? Representing the classy, elite side of the action genre are George Clooney and Matt Damon, regular partners in charitable efforts and grand, cinematic heists. Standing in for the brutal, trashy side of video violence is the brutal Jason Statham and the trashy Mickey Rourke (don’t punch us for saying that, Mickey). All of them are men who get results—Ocean’s Expendables, anyone?—but which one is your favorite?
What a bizarre black and white print Holly Madison has on…oh wait, that’s not random ink splotches—that’s Marilyn Monroe. The reality star paid tribute to the legendary lady by stretching her face across her body at the premiere of The Mechanic last night in Vegas. Can’t say this is a flattering look for either woman, to be honest. Maybe next time just rock a Marilyn t-shirt and jeans?
