Anybody have any idea who is competing? I'd come to watch (I have family there) but I won't be a last minute travel purchaser.... Internet photos and callout updates will do if I don't know who is there anyway until a couple of days before the event.

I suppose the local folks can tweet about it. Anyone on this thread going as a spectator?

Anyone know who will be photographing?

This shroud of secrecy must be a nightmare for the promoters.

I would have to guess that the projected numbers were low for MP so it was cancelled.

Hello all,

As previously mentioned on twitter, Facebook, sioux, MD ETC.......Our inaugural event has been well relieved by the local amateur athletes. We will have over 100 amateurs athletes competing at this first year event in a new market. As well, the Pro figure ladies list should be out next Tuesday and I would expect about 10 fabulous Pro's that will be competing. Our MC Shawn Ray, guest poser Toney Freeman and MMA Star Jake Ellenbuger will all be in attendance. We and you should expect a good event.................!

At least there isn't an extra fee for tickets purchased at the door....

I suppose it reduces the chances of late IFBB entries... With there being a figure or bikini show every weekend, no sense in tracking this particular show and keeping a watchful eye on the competitor list. Greater Gulf is up next for bikini in New Orleans and then Europa for all of it the following weekend...

I wonder what the overall 'blind poll' feeling is of the combination of all the added shows and withholding the competitor lists? The promoters feeling, competitors feeling, and random unattached fan feeling (not like my boyfriend, who is forced to go because I make him, HA!)

I'm flying out to Omaha to make my return to Fitness! So excited!! I was injured in 2008, so had to compete in Bikini for the last few years. Can't believe I can't find a local Fitness show in California to do that comes before the national-level shows. But I grew up in the Midwest, so shouldn't be too bad to head back out there so I can qualify for Nationals.

My routine isn't quite where I want it to be yet. But I'll do what I can...just need to secure eligibility to compete on the National level. Really, really looking forward to hitting the fitness stage again!

Jack read her first post (http://www.siouxcountry.com/showthread.php?p=500463#post500463) in this thread. She wanted to know who was competing, in order to decide if the show was worth it for her to attend or not. She's waited for a week for the list to be made public. Keeping the list non public until the last few days is not a positive for any fans. I posted the list (http://www.siouxcountry.com/showthread.php?t=20339) within the hour it was uploaded to the IFBB Pro site, which was after her last post in this thread. :)

List would be made public if the Pros got their contracts in on a timely fashion......but they dont!!! They wait to see whos competing.........I never understood that.... Its that simple...............However, simply put I don't need a list of Pros posted for tickets sales etc.....At our events the fans know that PROS will be there!!!!...It doesn't hold me back on Promoting my events.......So If one lonely Pro doesn't come to the show to watch......the other 1000 of folks
will!!! :) No worries!

On a closing note, posting of the list EARLY probably not going change until the Pros start getting their contracts in early or on time................more importantly not worrying about whos competing before they get their contracts in because at some point they will have to compete against everyone if they want to make it to the Olympia.....IMO

Quite frankly, what difference does it make when the list is out? Why does it matter who is competing or not competing...
From a promoters point, I will reiterate on Jacks statement, anyone who has ever attended one of our shows can attest to the quality of entertainment, we always have top notch guest posers not to mention the occasional surprises we throw in (ie the little person in st louis) With that being said, though there are other shows that have been in the circuit longer the same weekend how can any show grow and prosper without the support of other competitors and/or fans. As an IFBB Pro, I would never consider one show "better" than another. Creating a great experience and the opportunity step on stage to a competitor is what is important, not WHO is competing....
From a competitors view... who cares who who will be there, you eventually have to stand on stage with them, why wouldnt you want the challenge to stand next to anyone
Personally it sounds to me like its just something else to bitch and complain about...

I understand competitors often wait tell the last two weeks before entering. If your goal is an Olympia qualification, you choose your shows wisely, so if you see a Nicole Wilkins & Candice Keene on the list, you may choose another show instead. It makes sense to me, considering how expensive competing is.

I can see why the list is kept private by the promoter, but does it really help? Only 10 women are on the list, would it have been less if it was made public three weeks ago? Maybe it would have been more. We will never know. I think it is better overall for the list to be made public a month out. If the list is small that may encourage women to enter the show, women who might not even have had the show on their original agenda. If the list is made public early, fans & competitors are happy.

To have more women enter a show, the IFBB should go back to the Olympia qualifications rules they had last year.

I DISAGREE FOR ALL THE REASONS i PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED......Once again it doesnt effect the fan base..............true fans will always be therefor the love of the sport....BUT YOU CAN CONTINUE TO SPECULATE OR LISTEN TO MY FACTS.......To my point, Ive never used Pro women to promote my events by SPECIFIC NAMES etc.......only that Pro figure, bikini etc...will be there..............Ive had average Pro turnout and good turnout but have always had good attendance...why? For the reasons Ive stated.......The love to see the event and sport!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In closing, I wouldnt be opposed to the old Olympia qualifications either...........however, It wouldnt change my direction!

anntitone
06-06-2012, 02:03 AM
If your goal is an O qual, why wouldnt you want to stand next to Nicole or Candice, isnt competing about improving yourself? Not competing because of who you are afraid of losing to is a crock of shit. You cant hide your face and expect to be noticed. Be the best you can be, bring the best possible physique you are capable of bringing, if you doubt who you can stand next to, stay home, you have no business competing in the first place...
I can say that because Ive lost to A LOT of other girls and walked away feeling like Ive failed more than a couple times, not to mention the many things I have given up to step on the stage as many times as I have, its all about how bad you want it. Where there is a will, there is a way, I know that first hand.
With that being said, this is turning into a pissing contest and thats not the direction I intended so Im out, Good night...

Sorry, gotta add to this, at Erin Stern, Nicole Wilkins or Candice Keenes first show, who was out in the crowd saying "OH WOW ______ is gonna be there, this is gonna be a great show..." Probably not many but now that same person can say " I saw __________ in there first show, now shes top 3 in the world"
Why wouldnt you want ton support your possible future Olympians?

I have no doubt you two put on a great show for the audience, and people love to attend no matter when the list is made public. If the list has no effect on the audience, I think the list should be posted early to please competitors and fans. Just stating my opinion, and I appreciate yours. :)

It's not that anyone is afraid, people only have so much money. Better to spend your money on a show that you have a chance to win. Better to compete against Nicole at the big show, the O! :awesome: :)

Well, since you mention money and your opinion.............Jason, no harm no foul but yes your entitled to your opinion but it really doesnt matter because the Promoters are righting the checks.....so that the Pros can compete....not you!! Its there money that is used months ahead of time for the event, Pro purse , sanction etc......So, in all honesty you opinion is just that! Its dollars and cents......

Soon...... maybe we do reduce the Pro shows and then what.....who will be effected the Promoters ? No! The reduced Pro divisions / Pros would be effected with less resources and opportunity's....Lets remember, that the amateurs is what brings in the ticket sales.....on average 5-10 people per amateur athlete.......so, If Im wanting to have a pro division to help them out and I spend 5k on a purse and then a sanction fee.....with the pros taking their time to jump in why would I post the list to scare off potential Pros ( because a top girl has entered)who have stated they will wait before entering???? I think not!! Oh, I get it Ill pay 5k and up for only 5 girls to compete...That makes good business sense?????.. Lets not forget, the profit margin is reduced while carrying a Pro class....Why, once again the local attendance in most cases is brought in by local friends and family watching the amateurs. Come on man...............at the end of the day its the promoters money and he is offering the opportunity's!!!! This doesnt happen with the men!!!!!Why??? Maybe a different mind set?? I dont know! I love and support the women as I have proven this over the years but come on....fitness, etc.......incentives, etc......! Ok Im rambling.......any way.......

This is almost like sayin , Im going to go to work for someone who is writing my check but I tell him what and when I will work....maybe thats a bad example but hopefully you get my point.

Just sayin????????

Indeed it is your money, and it is your right not to make the list public before the deadline. I just don't believe it helps, we agree to disagree. I'm not saying it is easy on your end, I know it is frustrating that so few pro competitors are entering shows.

I have to be honest, I find it a little off-putting that promoters will get into an internet argument about their show. This disturbs me a little...especially since you essentially attacked Jennifer when she was just asking a question and then right on Sioux the minute he posted something. I find that you easily take offense to the littlest thing and get defensive the second you believe someone is attacking you...which from what I read, there were no attacks, just questions. Get over yourselves. Whether you put on a good show or not isn't even in question.

I see Ann's point, but I also agree that some people (rightfully so or not) are going to wait to see who is competing. Let's be honest, you should want to go up against the best, but some people are just going to wait for a show they feel they have a shot at.

Candice does have a really excellent shape, but am I the only person who thinks Andrea Cantone should win this? I mean she won't, but she SHOULD. Her shape is just as good as Lewis', and her conditioning is a million times better. Don't get me wrong, I know shape is a huge deal in figure, but I don't see how anyone as soft as lewis is could win a show. WILL she win? Probably. But come on, people...

See I get what you're saying... but at the same time...
She's bringing the same package to each show. She's consistently showing up looking good. The judges are rewarding her for that. If they had told her to tighten up, I'm sure she would have. But they're obviously not telling her to do that and she's coming out on top because of it. Sometimes it's better to be consistent then it is to just transform every single show into an unrecognizable competitor.
I just think she's a show stopper.

She's kind of like Nicole Wilkins 2.0. Remember when everyone used to scoff at Nicole being so incredibly soft. Well this is the sista version.

I like Candace's shape, obviously she's not being told to change so she shows up how she is. I think if she was actually tigther she'd be unbeatable. If she wins tonight it will be interesting to see what she brings to the Olympia stage.

For some reason when I look at her past pics and her current contest pics she's like a totally different complexion. Like she went from a milk chocolate sista to a golden goddess. This headache is really getting the best of my eye sight. :rofl:

I know it sounds like I'm hating on her, and maybe I am, but it's not because of her hair. I have no issues with fake hair, or fake anything else for that matter. But just like I wouldn't step on stage with my weave tracks exposed, I would also not step on stage with my wig pulled halfway down my forehead.
Also, real talk, I only called that nonsense out because I knew there were more than a handful of brown ladies on the board thinking the same thing. If I was the lone black wolf in this pack, I wouldn't have bothered.

Well maybe she has a really low hairline and is trying to put it forward enough as to not catch her own hair and damage it, or maybe she's hiding her forehead because it's much like Tyra Bank's forehead.

All and all, luckily it doesn't look like this....

Congrats to her though. Not gonna lie, it's nice to at least see another sista get some stage love. I would like to see her tighter, but hey, the judges don't mind.

...I love Candice's shape/frame, but I think she will have to come in tighter to move up at the Olympia. Apparently not by much since she is being rewarded tonight but I don't see her getting first call out at the O with this conditioning.

Here's the funny version of what a Lace Front is...
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Lace%20Front

Here's the PC non offensive definition.

LACE FRONT: A wig made with a mesh insert in the front into which individual hairs are hand-tied creating a realistic hairline. Attached with special adhesive the lace front creates an illusion that it is the wearer's own growing hair.

Candice Lewis is a beautiful competitor with amazing shape, but I tend to agree with what some of the others have suggested - she doesn't carry much muscle. My first thought when I saw her was that she reminds me of a mix between Nicole Wilkins and Ziville Raudoniene. I prefer Alea's look for figure.

Ann and I wanted to say thank you to all the athletes, sponsors, my staff and all the people of Omaha for their support this past weekend. We had a great turnout of competitor with number reaching over 140 with crossovers. and sold out the Finals of this inaugural event. The 10 Figure Pros all looked great especially the top 5 who made it difficult for the judges!

This was a new market for the IFBB / NPC and we def...made a huge splash. Ill steal a line from a great movie " Fields of Dreams" If you build it they will come............ Well thats what we did and they supported the event! Thank you everyone!!! Expect more events coming to Nebraska!!!
