Yes, even if only 3 people compete, the show will go on.

Last year at the IFBB New Zealand only 3 women competed in IFBB Bikini.

Thanks to Christy for posting Stacy's info..I was just coming on her to do that. Stacy trained with me here in Cincinnati and has worked shows with us for the last 2 years. She just recently moved back to San Diego, s that is where she will be located. She can go mobile, within reason, so contact her if you need tanning. She does great work!! 513-206-3096 She will have some touch up kits available as well:respect:

I actually will not be competing in TJ this weekend. Since I qualified in Phx and Michael and also decided to sit out TJ...we decided to scratch it. Plus we just moved this past weekend and it would be way too much right before the O. Best of luck to the ladies competing!

Aparently Mexico has given Pro cards to the winners in the amateur portion of the show on Friday and allowed them to join the Pro lineup today. I believe there were 2 Pro Cards for Bikini (ADRIANA FALCON & CRISTINA MENDIVIL) and one Pro card for men bb(HECTOR HUITZIL).
I found pictures of the prejudging on Facebook in Atlas Gym profile.

Well, that picture is more clear and now I realize that IS her hair. From the 2nd call out picture it looked like she had a ring of feathers in her hair. Now that I can see it closer I actually like her hair. LOL! Whoops! Amazing how much picture can show something COMPLETELY wrong! :)

Yes it was... and I thank GOD Abbie won! there were a few placings I thought were off. That one wasn't.
The Mexican girls were very stripper-esk on stage. They took WAAAAAY too long to pose and looked like they were in a soft-core video, not on a bikini stage. I was not a fan at all.

What I don't get is why judges don't stop this - especially at the pro level. It is far past time to embarass someone - call her out, disqualify her - betting it will only have to happen once and the skankiness will stop.

The thing is, the 2nd place girl from Mexico, was a brand new Pro.. so ok, maybe she didn't know. But she was beautiful on her own.... and I literally had to click away from the screen while she posed.... I couldn't watch it.
I stayed off the screen for about 30 seconds thinking she'd be done when I clicked back... nope. Still pouting and pushing her hair up around her face a-la-pin-up shoot all while poking her butt out at the audience.
I mean... ok... you're new... I get it. But did you see ONE other Pro on that stage doing that (minus the other new Mexican pro as well)??
Ugh....
just Ugh....

TanyaB
09-11-2011, 02:31 PM
Ok, so it was just the one new Pro? Someone needs to have a private chat with her then. I was catching up on Twitter and I got the impression there was a good bit of inappropriate behavior from Isaac - I never got the video to stream at work.

She may have been new to all this, or maybe it is encouraged in Mexico? I hope she'll read our forum here and change her posing for next week's Olympia, she joined us on Facebook yesterday. I do believe if the division was called "Fitness Model" a lot of the over the top posing would not have happened.

Myriam mentioned she will be the first Mexican to compete at the Olympia! Big congrats! :waving:

It is not the culture or custom in Mexico to blame on how the girls posed. It is the complete lack of KNOWLEDGEABLE professional coaches and trainers. THERE, I said it!

I just returned to the US after living the past year with my ex fiancé in the TJ area ( I do have 5 years experience living in Mexico). She is new to Bikini competition and is dedicated (I think fanatical, but hey it is a passion) and a sponge wanting to learn as much as she can.

We searched Mexico diligently for KNOWLEDGEABLE professional coaches/trainers for Bikini or Fitness that could be utilized to assist a woman in her quest to become a Pro Bikini. Does not exist in Mexico. Hence ...she will be the first Mexican to compete at the Olympia! Big congrats! Cristiana Mendivil is a professional spokes model/actress and now IFBB PRO BIKINI going to the Olympia, IMHO she deserves the shot. She trains at a gym in TJ and did have some professional guidance. Comments here and in other forums regarding the sexuality in her posing should be directed not at her, but her coaching AND how events are judged in Mexico. The women’s events appear to be treated as a after thought and really are NOT YET taken seriously.

I was happy to read on some other boards comments from some of the US Bikini pros that they liked the TJ event, it was professionally managed and how they were treated great. I was skeptical this show would run smoothly. My ex competed in a prejudging event for the amateur show held in TJ Friday and earned a spot to compete. The prejudging event was horribly run (same promoter of the Pro show) and this really discouraged her. Last I knew she had decided to skip Friday but at the last minute decided to compete. Unfortunately the organizers sent her to the wrong category, Fitness. She placed 4th and is not deterred in her quest to become a Bikini Pro only now she is trying to figure out how to find some good US coaching.

IMHO Mexico is a huge untapped market for professional coaches/trainers for women competitors. When I would bring my ex copies of Muscle & Fitness Hers or Oxygen magazines all the women in the gym would jockey in position to peruse, even if they did not understand English, others would interpret. The workout gear and outfits I would bring her from the US were also a big hit in the gym with the women asking how they could purchase similar items.

Can anyone tell me how to help non English speaking Bikini competitors from Mexico how to find good professional coaches/trainers from the US? Trust me there is a demand!

Thank you in advance for your responses.

When I was backstage at North Americans I was getting ready next to Team Mexico. All of the bikini girls posing was over the top. I think it is the way they are trained because it was all similiar. And they took Forrrreeeevvvvveeeerrrrr..... If you recall, Issac has tweets (or whatever you call them, I'm not on Twitter) about the Mexico girls looking like they were about to salsa dance and another about when the judge says thank you it means get the hell off the stage. (one Mexico bikini girl stayed on stage after they had excused her.) I think if they refined their posing they could shake up the NPC/IFBB world!

EVERYBODY has access to YouTube.... They could atleast watch the pros and take notes!
