I abruptly left, and never competed again, and never will.
    Time to start a thread about this in The Pit?!!

    Was he from Ohio?
    No east coast, but used to fly out for the Ohio contests, like the Powerhouse and Arnold.

    I had been hit on by plenty of gays, from working in gym's since I was 15, but that was the weirdest shit that ever happened to me.

    When i was 16 I did the Kentucky Derby show in Lousiville and after i got off stage I had a dude ask to take a few pics of me. Ok, sure. So he leads me to this small room and busts out his Polaroid (this was before digital) and has me hit various poses for like 10 min. I was exhausted. He tells me he will mail me the pics but never took my address. My first and only G4-NON-P

    BWAAAAHAAHHA!!! Something similar like this happed to me by a guy named D.C. Leroux in NY years ago.
    Dude caught me after a show and took some pics, then wanted me to come back to shoot a video. Thats when the gay started, and when I got the hell outta dodge!

    I would not like to hire the gay guru. His drooling might ruin my spray tan.

    If by hilarious you mean disgusting, yes I fully agree

    The philosophy behind this sport/lifestyle deserves so much respect yet it's being dragged down to the mud.
    No, the philosophy of health and fitness deserves much respect. BB is all about ego, arrogance, self worship, male worship and mental disorders.

    Then these bb.com nerds with their "mirrin" and "jelly" I mean, I can't imagine they possibly talk like the in real life.
    truth. If you don't attend a BB show and don't hate everybody there you are probably the problem.

The constant worry about looking small, making sure you have your "shit" for your show, the over eating to gain size then the extreme diet to get lean. Putting God knows what in my shoulder every 3 days! CRAZY

    We are not so different you and I.

    Every subculture has its weirdos & borderline types. Besides bodybuilding, I am pretty familiar with science fiction fandom, & there are loonies coming out of the woodwork there. However, there are also a lot of great people, like in the bodybuilding world.

    BTW, if I spent a year preparing for a competition, I wouldn't end my competitive career just because I roomed with a rude idiot I didn't know well. I'd just get another hotel room.

    Irv Gelb is a notorious homo. I think he has been assaulted a few times for ripping people off from what I've heard as well.

    When I was a naive 19 year old a very demanding "Jimmy Z' gave me a creepy vibe at my first competition saying he wanted to do a 'photoshoot'. Unbeknownst at the time to the seedy world of underground bodybuilding I thought I had made it big! Later that night I googled his name and found his repugnant male gay for pay exploitation site.
