After his retirement, the cyclist (above, right) has said, "I'm going to drink my fair share of beer." WATCH HIM MIX WITH: Matt Leinart.

MOST LIKELY TO: Start throwing guests in the pool.
WHY SHE'S INVITED: Blonde bombshell has brought heat to a sport once associated with balding, beer-swilling man-boys.
