    Default Something about the Muscelmania show format bugs me?

    When Ron and ESPN were doing Musclemania, it kicked ass.
    In recent years it looks like a glorified beauty contest complete with pro nattys in costumes? WTF.

    I stopped paying attention to that event when I left the company in 1998. So shocked it is still being promoted and doing well 21 years later.

    It still exists but doing "well" is in question.
    I last attended the Muscle Mania Universe back around 15-16 yrs ago . It was held at the Eden Roc hotel on Miami Beach.
    The top guys were ripped and well conditioned. The winner was a some young blonde dude with striated quads and glutes.
    Even back then, the pros used props and mini costumes during their finals routines. I didn't think much of that, but wtf.

    The show really had an international contingent of entrants and the physiques were impressive for a natural event.

    The Fitness Division was won by some fairly normal/regular looking girl with short brown hair.
    She did this awkward looking fitness routine wearing actual full size skis and boots.
    I didn't understand why she won and thought she was in the bottom 10% of contestants.

    The event was held in the main floor ballroom of the Eden Roc, and the stage was kinda small and in open.
    I remember laughing when the night show had a 20 min delay due to a Jewish wedding in the next ballroom.
    I chuckled at the idea of how this bride and her family had her wedding with all these briefly clad competitors running around the hotel.

    Not to mention that he's the natural Asian wonder, just like his white and black brothers in iron Mike O'hearn and Simeon Panda.
