    Who exactly are the judges? For any high profile contest the number of judges, their names, experience/bios should be posted for all to see online. Anyone else agree?

    It was like looking at strobe lighting, shockingly shite.

    You wouldn't want to have epilepsy.

Okay, being there in person, twenty feet from the stage- you still can’t see shit in-person because the stage is nothing but glowing neon lights- onky way to see the physiques is to literally watch the screens on the side of the stage- so I officially call bullshit on this crap rationale for crap judging.

    The shows look like nightclubs, Howard says that when he competed he did it in school theaters, but it seems that he was better than now.

    I honestly think all this stuff about the bad lighting and the confusing background is intentional, as well as some stupid and nonsensical placements.

    This should be the only industry where promoters make an effort that their product cannot be seen in optimal conditions.

    The stage was terrible for competitors and for people watching. It also made judging harder. You want to SEE the competitors. I worked at the UK Arnold and I was impressed by the stage set. I large part of it was black and another part of of it was unobtrusive. See video and pic.

    Steve Weinberger's sat to the left of the chair pictured.. I spoke to him a couple of times and he was really thankful and impressed by the UK set up.
    This is the famous Samson routine on the same stage.

    One more point. I'm surprised by the total lack of coverage this show got from MD.

    To not feature a well conditioned younger star like Nick Walker was outrageous. Bodybuilders ate just an afterthoughts at the so called Superbowl of Bodybuilding.
