I thought Ava looked fantastic and should have been compared to the top 3. :)

Not sure if it's just that she's opened up her back more this year or what, but Ava looks a lot wider up top than she did in her national win last year. She's put some mass on her back/shoulders and I think she's a little more 'filled out' for this show compared to last. Beautiful package!

Sioux I liked Myriam's routine the best….there were many good ones…yet she is the one who pulled me in completely and I didn't want to take my eyes off of her. Sometimes the women that have tumbling runs and alot of gymnastics in their routines lose the connection with the "entertainment" part of performing, and Myriam "sold" it from start to finish no matter how difficult her moves were, she was engaging.

My 2 little cents… ;):D

I really like Bianca Binno...just gorgeous. She's got a different bikini look than a lot of her fellow competitors because she's very long-limbed, but I think she looks spectacular onstage.

The other three women are qualified for the Olympia, so Bianca will get her qualification if she places 4th. :)

It'd be a well-deserved one, in my opinion. She's a lot more mainstream looking than some of the other competitors, but I could totally see it translating into a slew of fitness modeling opportunities.

chicky9914
08-14-2010, 09:15 PM
um... wow....

As far as Mindi - I'm sure she wasn't vying for a top spot or to "peak." She prob was just wanting a little warmup getting ready for the O, and perhaps wanted to try a softer look. I like the low-lights in her hair a LOT more. Looks more natural. Gorgeous suit.

Hey guys, just got back in and I must thank you all for your constructive remarks from my last show, and as you can tell, I've made some adjustments which seem to have earned me some respect. I couldn't have done it without your help and support, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart... my friends... my fans.

Special mention to: Siouxcountry (Jason), AnneP, reurope, chicky9914, Shelly, Crystol88, fitfox17, foxieroxie007 and the whole SC family, Luv wanna!

:waving:

Rosalind,

I am so glad you decided to do this show and hopefully you will continue competing. I love what you did with your presentation and the fact that you kept your curls and just changed it up. I feel like you can see them more now from far away because they are bigger. Such a cute style on you!!! But regardless of whatever you do presentation-wise, or wherever you place in any show, I hope you know just how many people look up to you and admire you for what you do. You are AMAZING!!!

P.S....I believe a 2nd banner pic is in order for this week :)

chicky9914
08-14-2010, 09:26 PM

I concur with both of you guys about Amanda...her bootie is OUT OF THIS WORLD too!

I love the fact that she stands in a stance that would not flatter 99% of the female population (it encourages a crease and even if you have the tiniest bit of fat there, you will be able to see it. Not in her case!)

Alicia & Teresa should but Terri has been in the middle so probably not. Terri in my opinion could stand to put on some more mass.

Different judges, different competitors, new day....so many variables. You really can't come up w/ a specific reason. I will say most comp. from Jax came in a tad tighter this week.

So um I just showed my mom photos of the show. She's obviously not a competitor, although she's been to a few of my shows. She understands the look they're going for. So I pulled up the MD Site. Showed her a few of the competitors pics in the 2nd through final callouts. Then showed her a pic of Mindi from this show. Did not make her aware of Mindi's previous show placing.

Mom (never cusses): "That's BULLSH*T!"

Bottom line - Your previous performances should not have an bearing on callouts in the present show. Everyone should be given a clean slate.

No offense to Mindi...she is still gorgeous onstage, I like her as a competitor, but it's obvious she was not at her best, which I am sure we will see at the O.

I am so proud of Elisha. I think she brought a tighter even better package to this show. It's only been a week and her waistline looks smaller and her legs are definitely tighter. I love the straight hair too!

She has been wanting to come back for quite some time and SHE'S BACK! I wish her well. GO ELISHA!

I agree, Mindi was not at her best. If she places top 8, it would be a gift.

She's got 6 weeks to bring her A game to the Olympia, plenty of time. :)

This is my first post here i am usually just a reader. It is a little difficult for me to come out and say this as i am VERY new to figure. In fact i have only done 2 shows to date both of which i did not place. All of that aside, i was very disheartened at the results of this show.
I have no connection to any of these ladies so my opinion is totally unbiased.
I got into this sport because i always looked up to female bodybuilders. I saw figure as a sport where you are able to change your physique to be lean and MUSCULAR without excessive muscle.
It seems to me that the first place winner of this and many other pro show lack the ingredient i thought they looked for here..MUSCLE.
Figure now looks to me like bikini plus 5 pounds and some heavy diuretics soon the sports will merge and the option for muscular women to compete will be bodybuilding alone.
There are 15 girls on that stage who looked more esthetically pleasing and more muscular and i just don't get why they get over-looked.
Again, all this is my very unqualified opinion but an opinion none-the-less

Hi there!! Welcome to SC.com!! Honey, join the club...It is what it is. Many feel the same way you feel. The arguement of figure and bikini looking similar has been discussed atleast a MILLION times!!!

WELCOME TO FIGURE!!! You have picked the most subjective sport/hobby in the world! I don't think there's a member on this forum who competes in figure who hasn't shared your same sentiments in one way or the other!!

Are calves still considered an optional muscle group in physique competition?

I know! Lot's of girls are missing calves :confused:

Glad to see Theresa so high in the placings! I LOVE her shape, and her placings are so erratic. :confused:
I wish I had been around to see the fitness routines... thanks for the brief info though. And it's great to see Bethany with a win. She has an incredible physique! :bowdown:
Does anyone else think the 4th place bikini girl looks like she's wearing her underwear?? A nice matching set, but still looks like frillies.

Believe it's a Betsey Johnson suit...the style of that suit collection was lingerie-themed

It seems to be popular this year - I saw a bunch of that style when out shopping for a vacation suit last night. I wouldn't wear it but it seems she placed just fine with her choice.

Pretty good show with some questionable placements in the men's open and Bianca's choice of outfit was outside the box. Something different once in a while is a welcome change when it comes to anything.

Even if McMillan was soft, no way Alvisi can beat him! Happy to see these rookies impress - welcome to IFBB, Essa Ibrahim!

I simly loooooooooooove Bethany Wagner's physique. That symmetry and structure is SICK. Love it.

I think Terri Turner is waaaaaay too tiny (muscle development is nearly nill) and have some structural issues (rear), no v-taper, quite narrow .... to take these shows. I am in shock.

Rosalind's 15th place is A FUCKING BIG JOKE.

Alicia Harris was really good at this show, best her ever? Glad to see her bringing it tighter. She is good.

Ava Cowan, didnt she look better at this show than at her pro debut? I would have had her in TOP 5 easily.

Mindi Smith was extreme disappointing. I have nothing against Mindi. At her best, she has a good bod. But I just would love to see fair judging - u get what u deserve, u place well when u are good and when u look shit, u get thrown out from top call outs. Thats how it should be. This time, Mindi belonged out of TOP 10.

I am really impressed with Karly Woodle's structure n symmetry, X-frame is superior. Beautiful tiny waist, wide upper body, good v-taper, beautiful round quads... The day this girl has a bit better muscle development (oh well, I assume muscles are not needed here) and a bit better conditioning plus some more tuning, she ll do some real damage. At least I hope so. Thats IMO what should be required always in TOP ... tiiiiiny waist, WIDE upper body, real x...

Thanks for the coverage! Was an interesting show with many surprises. Many freaking good physiques. And I am so thankful, this show gave some hope. Even if you have fucked structure, u can still do very well on IFBB PRO stage! Thanks judges.
