Michael Phelps has become one of the biggest stories of the summer Olympics -- again -- and now the attractive "mystery blonde" who has been seen out and about with the most decorated Olympian ever is grabbing a bit of his spotlight.
The website Hollyscoop says Phelps' gal pal is a 25-year-old, Los Angeles based aspiring model named Megan Rossee.
"She and Phelps began dating in January (2012) and things started to heat up just prior to the Olympics," a source told the site. "At the time when they began dating, baseball and television star Doug Reinhardt was crushing on her too, but she chose to be with Michael instead."
"I am super easy going and pretty much down for any type of project (that doesn't involve nudity)"

Rossee tooka photo of she and Phelps arm in arm in London, along with all of his new Olympic hardware, with the simple caption: “Yay Michael.”
She also hit the red carpet with him Monday night in London at a Speedo event. (Only swimmers and their significant others go to Speedo events.)
Rossee has a page up on the modeling industry site Model Mayhem that provides a few more personal details.
First, she is tall: 5' 9 1/2."
Second, she is an "All-American girl."
Third: “I am super easy going and pretty much down for any type of project (that doesn't involve nudity). I love what I do and hope to further my career as a model as well as a performer, so if you are interested in working with me, send me a message!”
Hollyscoop says Rossee currently bartends at Blok nightclub in Los Angeles, but Phelps wants her to quit her job so she can travel the world with him post-London.
Hmmm ... keep bartending, or travel the world with an American sports hero?
