Candice for the win.....
They all look amazing but she's got it all together for sure.

Ava 2nd
Nicole and Erin can go either way for 3rd/4th

Of course it all depends on what they are looking for and how they actually presented themselves on stage.

Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Becca says:
Candice is KILLIN IT BUUUUUUT - but too big for the figure criteria from the back. Her back is SOOO Meaty, striated shoulders....she looks bigger than ever, maybe WPD size!!
If I were judging I would have Ava from the front, Erin from the back.

Dani says:
1. Nicole
2. Candice
3. Erin


Amanda says:
1. Nicole
2. Erin
3. Ava
4. Candice (only because too big)

DixieReynolds

Becca you could be right... her back is very meaty, but dang... Id pick her still! She got it together!

Her back does look meaty, I wonder if it is her posing? She also appears to have shoulders kind of like Jillian Reville's (who was told her shoulders are to big for physique believe it or not). I still like Candice best in this line up, least impressed with Erin, she's been better.

WOW! @ Candace.....but i highly agree she might be too "meaty"

johnstoa
03-02-2012, 09:28 PM
I agree with Becca. Candice def looks insanely good, but she is a bit too conditioned and bigger that what they have been rewarding. Then again, Candice always looks great, but WOW does she look incredible today. :respect::awesome:

I may be biased....but CK look phenom and deserves 1st. Her whole presentation and overall look is best than other 3 girls. I'd have
1-Candice
2-Erin
3-Ava
4-Nicole
I know for a fact CK is down to almost 5% bf which prob just makes the lines a bit more drastic. And I'm not sure how much she carbed up for this show. Hands down she sticks out and shines next to the other girls.

TFenske
03-02-2012, 09:42 PM
1 Nicole 2 Candice (wow!!!) 3 Erin 4 Ava

But keep in mind the Arnold typically rewards a leaner figure look! So Candice just may have it :) Either way LOVE her here.

03-02-2012, 09:46 PM
I think:
Erin
Nicole
Ava
Candice


BUT it will most likely be 1st:Nicole, 2nd Erin, 3rd Ava and 4th Candice....

I'm lovin Candice in this line up, but with the way everything is going... She's not going to get first.

But I think -

Nicole
Erin
Ava
Candice

I'd would love it if it were
Candice
Nicole
Erin
Ava

And I"m usually a huge Erin fan, but I'm not really excited about her look this year, but hey you've gotta play the game to win.

From the pics, I actually like Erin least of the four.

Yeah I'm so kind of surprised cause her look is always so on point. But I guess she had to try some new things to be able to fit in with the current look.

On another note...

Jillian's shoulders TOO BIG for WPD? :tongue: That's just CRAY!

I agree with Becca, 100%. I'm usually a big Erin fan but not loving her here...maybe it's these pictures?! If I were judging, I'd go CK, AC, and then ES/NW...but I'm not a judge. I love Candice's look but that's not what they've been rewarding. :(

I doubt she's down to 5% BF. If that were the case, she'd be leaner than the FBB. She does look phenomenal though.

Katelynn Sue
03-02-2012, 09:55 PM
I Know for a fact her trainer took her bf a week out and she was at 6.25....figured shed be around 5.5 or 5.75 depending on how last week of dePletion. And yes she can be that lean....she just isn't as muscular as fbb

http://www.musculardevelopment.com/contests/12-arnold/12-arnold-womens/4046-figure-pre-judging-first-and-final-callout.html

Nicole will win, but I'm not a 100% sure Erin will place 2nd. Maybe Candice will be runner up. :popcorn:

03-02-2012, 09:57 PM
Trust me on this one... If it was taken properly, she isn't that low. But hey, I'm not one to argue.

Katelynn Sue
03-02-2012, 10:01 PM
Only way to completely and accurately test bf is not how most figure competitors are measured....so by what she norm competes at around 6.5 to 7% using calipers....she is leaner than what she norm is. Who cares anyways???? It's about overall physique....I was just stating WHY she may have more lines and looks bigger. Other girls are more soft and not as lean

Right leg shorter?

vancouverchick
03-02-2012, 10:12 PM
Erin.... then Nicole... then Ava... then Candice.

Candice is too big... call it meaty if you want... but I am thinking now that they have a Women's Physique category, figure is going smaller, tighter.

I think Erin brought her body down a little - if that makes sense, Nicole too. Tighter and Tinier.... maybe a direction figure is taking perhaps?

foxieroxie007
03-02-2012, 10:12 PM
Right leg shorter?

She used to pose with one shoulder higher than the other, but it wasn't so noticeable today. In the video though she looks great. I hope she is recognized for that. I think she's made such amazing progress since she turned pro! :awesome:

KP DIVA

IMO, Not so much that Erin is off....it's just that Erin looks the same whereas the remaining ppl n the call out r showing noticeable improvements since last season......also, I think Erin's bottoms aren't doing her any justice. I think pulling her sides above her hip bone would make her waist look smaller......i know Erin isn't that straight up/down - wide waisted, but n the pics thats how she looks.......those bottoms are killing her in the front pose.

I would go:
Candace
Ava
Erin
Nicole


But I think the judges will go:
Nicole
Erin
Ava
Cancade.

I don't have a lot of faith in the judges for either the Arnold OR the Olympia as it seems it's always the same girls in the same order in every single show.

I wish I were there-too hard to say from photos. I pick a winner, sorry to say except Erin, in each different pose.
My guess is:

Nicole
Ava
Erin
Candace (only b/c of her size-I love it personally!)

Laurie Schnelle
03-02-2012, 11:50 PM
I'd love to see Keene win, damn she has some size but i think too much for figure. :(
nicole looks very soft. Erin looks too small.?. Ava looks good.
HARD call!!

viridian
03-03-2012, 04:13 AM
Stern, Cowan, Wilkins, Keene

Where are Nicoles hammies in this show?! So soft. And I agree, for the usual for figure, Candices back is a bit on the thick side. And I think if Ava wouldve gone a touch leaner, she'd have deserved #1.. but she looks a bit too soft.

And poor Jelena, just cant seem to win. Her abs always look ripped, even at higher bodyfat. She always looks great, but it doesnt seem to be what they want in the divisions she's tried.

And then Alicia - she's usually a total fav of mine, but she came in really soft for this show. :(

In this line-up I feel like Erin looks almost too thin. From the side it's like she disappears.
I would honestly have put Ava in first here, then Nicole, then Erin, then Candice. I love Candice's look, but I do feel she's just a bit to big and hard here. And I edged Ava out over Nicole just because I feel like Nicole is a tad too soft. Nicole has a great shape, but I like her a little leaner in it.

Fleur

Nicole was sooooo soft. To me fr audience my call would have been:
1.Theresa
2. Ava
3. Erin
4. Candace

I totally agree, especially about Erin, way too thin. Candice's back is sick, OMG, but definitely too big for figure. Gorgeous line up. Lotta hard work put in on that stage.
