Sports figure(s) involved: Arnold Schwarzenegger
Year: 2011

The character arch of Arnold Schwarzenegger is wayyy more dramatic in real life than in any of the Terminator movies. The guy is a body builder turned Hollywood icon who eventually became Governor of California. And guess what? None of that shit is half as crazy as when we found out he'd knocked up his 55-year-old Guatemalan housekeeper (who was pretty busted looking) and had a 14-year-old son with her. When news broke, his 25-year marriage to Maria Shriver went up in flames like T800 at the end of Terminator 2.
