    Wolf cannot or just doesn't care to control his gut AT ALL.


    Lionell absolutely has the most potential of any of those guys to be a reigning champ. his structure, shape and overall mass is just sick. And I'm a fan of Evan like everyone else, just sayin..
    Neither did Ronnie Coleman, and he became 8X Mr.Olympia...

(though I personally don't think his placing was a failure because he has such a good structure) I know it's normal to want people to like you, but to think that EVERYONE will like you is a bit unrealistic.
      Ced did win the last show he was in...or am I misremembering something here?

        3. Either Dexter is losing muscle, his waist is getting bigger and wider, everyone else is getting bigger, or a combo of any of the 3 (not at all impressed considering his near perfect little big man genetics)
        4. Lionel has the best overall genetics of anyone in the show and can go far in the "sport"
        5. Evan keeps getting better every show. By September he will be top 6 Olympia (if judged fairly)
        6. Places of Branch, Dexter, Ben, and Lionel could be swapped in any which way without any complaint from me
        finally SOMEONE WHO KNOWS BODYBUILDING!!

              Is there a link to this breakdown that Cedric had? It sounds epic.

                Dennis Wolf - Sorry

                I am very sorry for Dennis Wolf and I think he is robbed. He is in the best shape on the stage. But great guy and I dont know how he controlled his emotions that he put a lot of hardwork over the weeks. Good luck Dennis for Mr.O.

                  It was a cool moment that I was up there giving Evan his check although I didn't want to give 3rd place to him as I thought he should have won.

                    Branch is a great guy, unbelievably strong and determined. What he accomplished after his injury is admirable - and pretty crazy. But his bulky physique doesn't deserve a major title, imo. Bodybuilding is not just about size, but also about form, symmetry and overall aesthetics, if I remember correctly. Other guys had more of that on the Arnold stage that night. Oh, and the "Entertainment Award" is a joke, right?

                      I almost agree. Dennis looked fantastic. But as much as I had liked to see him winning the show (since I am German too), someone with calves like his should never get a title. He just lacks the OVERALL physique.

                          Wolf was pissssssed , probably rightfully so and Pakman looked like he was eight months pregnant on his way to collect his awards.

                          I just hope that Wolf gets angry enough to come back stronger and not sulk away from the stage !

                            Bodybuilding isn't a body part contest. It is judged on the physique as a whole. Until Ronnie Coleman all former Mr.Olympias (besides Sergio Oliva) had underdeveloped legs compared to their upper bodies (Frank Zane was small overall, and Chris Dickerson's calves were almost as big as his quads lol

                              I rewinded the top 2 award when dennis wolf got 2nd. He was ready to knock someone out. Beyond pissed off. I would be too if i lost out on 60 thousand dollars. Count em 60,000 to Branch Warren. No offense to the champ, he's a bawse..but Dennis Wolf man..can't help but feel bad for ya.

                                Cedric was working full-time, taking care of his family that were
                                severely injured in a car wreck and getting ready for a show.
                                I think that could put anyone on the verge of a mental breakdown.
                                (Not saying he had a mental breakdown, but just the family situation alone
                                was tough on him. I think he spent almost all his free time at the hospital.
