HGH #55 - Olympia Predictions. Stoph #1?


00:00.00

christophknoll

The Mr Olympia results may shock you.

00:05.22

Paul

The speculation will cause controversy. It's it. Ah, it's a conspiracy theories is 2020 threeia canceled it.

00:07.94

christophknoll

Just every clickbait title we can fit never before seen. Ah, alien potential at 2023 Mr. Olympia

00:22.71

Paul

What would be. We'll be another one like ah Arnold canceling the olympia for his show. it' like what.

00:31.96

christophknoll

no no no I got ah I got a good one coach Greg yells at all Olympia competitors.

00:39.87

Paul

Um, rich pana back from the dead at the Olympia fraud. Yeah, he's that he had he just rose from the graduates for the olympia the back he's back.

00:43.72

christophknoll

Ah, from the grave my God it says.

00:53.45

Paul

You can hear the music. The hard style is coming already.

00:56.29

christophknoll

Ah, ah, but yeah, hey guys it's ah it's one week out from Olympia so we are ah where we're putting down our predictions we're ah we're putting down our bets or we're getting ready for the big time.

01:10.68

Paul

Oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah, today we'll be going over who we think is going to place where um, it's all just the the thing with the like really only a couple of these are like yeah I basically guaranteed this other go to place but outside of like. Basically first place in each division that I have down is like it could literally be basically anybody at this point like so many of men's open competitors classic ed men's physique which will be going over today so many of them are like whether or not they show up. You know, peaked how their conditioning is actually going to be on stage whether or not you know. Instagram photos or something like that or even like truthful in a sense like they actually showing like your true physique or if it's like you know heavily filtered and all of that. So all of that's going to kind of play a play a role because like none of these guys. We actually see in person so it's like we can't really say what these guys are actually going to look like on stage. And also you got to keep in mind that even even if their photos were not all alternative to any way how they look in the gym is going to be very different to how they look on stage and on top of that stage photos when we see stage photos when the show does come around look very different than. What people look like on stage. So what the judge see versus what we see in photos and videos may be completely 2 completely different things so we're just going to kind of speculate see what we think could be the top 5 in each division and kind of just go over that and why we think that potentially.

02:26.35

christophknoll

And yeah.

02:44.89

christophknoll

And for anyone who doesn't know the olympia is starting this week goes from thursday all the way to Sunday I think pre-judging is what Saturday and then the actual ah action or sorry yeah prejudging Saturday and then.

02:58.30

Paul

I think I want to say usually they do pre-juging Saturdays I think um, we look at the schedule. Um, yeah, the official schedule for the olympia. Let's see so.

03:01.95

christophknoll

Ah, could be wrong. Yeah, that and then Sunday they come out with their. Ah yeah.

03:12.61

christophknoll

Because I know the first couple days are just you know meet and greets and exposes and stuff like that.

03:14.56

Paul

Bunch of tickets.

03:21.27

Paul

So Friday is the prejudging for 2 12 in in men's is just 2 12 um. And then let's see Friday five this is 2 12 so to 12 is done Friday um, Mr. Olympia prejudging is Friday as well at six p m and then from there there.

03:44.26

christophknoll

Y'all go.

03:48.23

christophknoll

Okay, okay.

03:53.93

Paul

Saturday is classic physique and immense physique and then obviously wheelchair Olympia prejudging and then let's see finals are also wheelchair on on Saturday and then so ah Saturday finals men's physique. Mr. olympia and classics so sunday there actually isn't any finals. So um saturday it's so to break it back down friday prejudging Mr. Olympia saturday prejudging and finals classic and men's physique. So all 3 finals are on saturday but um, Mr. Olympia pre-judges friday night. That's ah, that's the only separation there. Um, which fucking sucks for for Mr. olympia competitors in my opinion that sucks.

04:36.99

christophknoll

Yeah.

04:43.28

christophknoll

Yeah I mean that's a that's a long time that you got to be dialed in.

04:50.17

Paul

Yeah I hope that ah want to say finals actually does play a role in your're placing as well. I'm pretty sure like it's not like you could like show up perfect to preach and they show up to like shit to finals and they'd reward that you know so.

05:06.41

christophknoll

Well I I have in my prediction something going down in the finals like that affects the the actual placement. So what we'll get into that when we get to ah for 2 classic.

05:06.79

Paul

We'll see how that goes.

05:18.73

Paul

All right sounds good I think I know what direction they're going in but we'll see um so I guess we could just start with like men's open. Um, it's the big one.

05:27.14

christophknoll

Sure Yeah, that's that's the ah it's of the blowout. There's There's the ah you but but it's it's It's no competition.

05:32.47

Paul

Yeah I mean of course we both got their glos for him first I mean come on come on I mean he was expected to win last year

05:36.11

christophknoll

Yeah, if if if anybody wants to see. Yeah, if if anybody wants to see just take a look at his Instagram stuff right? like as of late because I mean Paul and I send each other stuff almost on the daily about what this dude posts like. He's got muscles on his back that I didn't know existed and I and and I know the human anatomy. Yeah I know I know humannatomy pretty darn well and he's just got muscles I've never seen before.

05:56.59

Paul

Yeah, he defies the laws of physics.

06:09.25

Paul

Seek his ah his well this is the thing is that we don't know if these photos are filtered anything like that but seeing his photos right now in comparison to his olympia prejudging quality. It's like his rom boys are sticking out like an extra inch in comparison to last year's prejudging.

06:13.31

christophknoll

I dow. Yeah.

06:26.39

Paul

So that's really interesting to see um but we'll see how he actually peaks I mean he we a lot of people had him for like top 3 that once you saw him on stage like fuck. This guy could actually win but then Heidi Troopin took it ah which I agree with we we talked about it last year you know. I agree with the placement but like once we saw Derek up there. It's like fuck dude like he's he's totally gonna fucking win and then now that we see where he has now and he looks leaner and bigger than he did last year like it's gonna be crazy. Um.

06:59.29

christophknoll

Yeah.

07:02.90

Paul

But we'll see how that goes but I do have him first sorry there's a bug. Anybody's watching the video just see my swipe the camera. Um, yeah, first yeah I'm just grabbing the air. But ah, we'll see how we sell places I mean.

07:10.49

christophknoll

It's your fist bump. You're like yes.

07:18.50

Paul

I'm excited to see his physique. He looked insane last year. So it's gonna be exciting stuff. You know.

07:21.54

christophknoll

Yeah, for sure I mean he just brings a different package like you know men's open continues to be you know, essentially who can take the most drugs and survive and it's like he's really really getting there.

07:36.88

Paul

Yeah I mean it's He's just bringing a bit more symmetry and aesthetics back. You know which is great very few mentallympia competitors have aesthetic physiques. You know so we'll see how that goes when when we cross that line but I mean as far as like.

07:42.39

christophknoll

Yes.

07:56.63

Paul

The other placements I mean there's a lot of other people I'd rather place hire like I want recon grimes to place really high but he's not gonenna I know he's not um, he just we have reing grimes top 3

08:03.61

christophknoll

So I I actually have him in the three I have him in the 3 I'm that I'm pulling hard for him I I bet I fan boy over Regan and I I'm pulling hard for him this year

08:15.19

Paul

Um.

08:20.90

Paul

Interesting see I have a like probably like maybe top 10 I'm not even writing down a top 10 list but like maybe top 10 I would hope but there's so many other competitors I think that are going to go past them.

08:22.33

christophknoll

And.

08:30.97

christophknoll

Yeah. I Think for him it really just comes to how ah like how low he can get his body fat and all that because he has the size.. It's just how how diced can you get and also you know like you brought up like your aestheticness. How Ah how. Good Can you make yourself look because men's open can it can be tough to make yourself look good in the eyes of you know the judges especially like but anybody who's not in the bodybuilding world looks at men's open and says that's disgusting but we enjoy it. But.

09:02.64

Paul

Um, I mean um.

09:09.96

christophknoll

You know I think for him because looking at some of his past shows and whatnot when he comes in he comes in nice but like I feel like there's always a little bit more that he could have peaked you know.

09:20.74

Paul

I mean he's gotten his conditioning a lot better, especially under honey I'm pretty sure he's on the under Honey Ram Bond or maybe he's me little saive I always get them fucking mixed up. Actually I think it's Milos um, yeah, it's it's it's right, it's. Milosarev so under Milo Starev um I think that he's gonna his condition is gonna be even better. He has done pro shows in order to get qualified for the olympia. So hopefully he comes and conditioned I think his problem is actually the opposite I think it's his size. It's gonna end up being the problem. Um, he doesn't.

09:56.93

christophknoll

Too much size. Oh interesting. Okay.

09:59.27

Paul

Quite have no he doesn't quite have the size that the other competitors do um yeah, he had to take a whole year off from the olympia to put on size. Ah just because he didn't have the size a couple of years ago which he has a lot more size now. No go be wrong. But I think you could use some more size that that he could benefit from that. So.

10:17.40

christophknoll

And the problem is he doesn't he doesn't post with other people. So it's tough to see the comparison shots. You know.

10:19.18

Paul

We'll see how that goes.

10:26.40

Paul

This is true. This is also true. So I mean hopefully top 10 but he hasn't placed well in the past I'd love to see him in the top. You know 3 5 whatever. But um, it's all just up to the judges and they don't typically look on recon favorably. So. We'll see how that goes but um for overall my top 5 which this could be really honestly any of these four could really go in any direction I think it's just like these next this next list I'm going to list off is like theoretically 2 through 5 but it. Could be any combination. You know it doesn't necessarily mean that like I think that you know who's going to get a second It's Goingnna get second I mean he could. But if he place his third I'm not surprised you know so for second I have hadie choopin for third I have Nick Walker Fourth I have hunter lebrada.

11:19.61

christophknoll

Ah.

11:21.15

Paul

And 5 I have Sampson data. Um I think any of those could transfer transfer I think alive is going to come down to whether or not they peak properly. Um, how they look on stage like Hunter Beat nick last Olympia but I I don't know if they're gonna they like. Nick has just got such a fucking freaky physique that they are probably going to reward that at the end of the day and I think how he could place really really? Well, we know that he won last year I think he just comes down to his peakeing because he's on the older side. So. It's hard to say whether or not he's going to show up. Peaked and I hope he does I hope he gets first or second you know he deserves it but um, with knowing where derek's@beingontheyoungersidepeakedlikecrazylastyear he looked amazing. So we'll just see how that goes Nick versus hunter I don't think either 1 really has an aesthetic physique at all. Um, hunter does look fucking wild though he comes in a lot of time very lean prior to his show and then he misses his peak. It's just he's got that that big rommi you know issue there where he looks great like he for four weeks out he posted and he looked fucking dicey the gills. But then. You know sometimes he'll show up to a show and he doesn't quite look the way he he showed himself on Instagram so I hope he gets placed in top 5 or top 3 even for that matter. But we'll see and then Samson Doubta just everybody's a fan of Samson Doubta I'm not the biggest fan of him I don't like his physique at all really, but um.

12:41.73

christophknoll

Yeah.

12:55.98

Paul

There's knowing his potential I think he could potentially place top 5 So we'll see how that goes.

12:59.59

christophknoll

Well on what you brought up with with their physiques Nick Walker's physique actually scares me like he's that like it's but and it's also like his posing faces are not posing his flexing faces.

13:07.63

Paul

It's fucking wild or hot.

13:14.36

christophknoll

Obviously is posing one. He doesn't do it because he's in a routine and everything by his flexing face. It just scares me like I genuinely like don't think like there. There's There's a lot of people I think I could like you know take a hit from I don't think I could take a hit from him.

13:17.81

Paul

Yeah, um.

13:29.79

Paul

He has ah his legs are well not to mention his veins but his legs. The reason his legs look so fucking. Weird is because of ingrown hairs. Ah, people don't realize it but it's ingrown hairs. He shaves his legs or buzzes them like I do. And a lot of times I'll get in your own hairs as a bunch of red dots and shit and it makes your legs look freaky So his hams, especially whatever he does for the underside of his legs like it looks crazy and video it's because of Va grown hairs. Um, and then obviously his ah all of his ah veins and shitter.

13:47.50

christophknoll

Yeah.

14:02.59

Paul

Fucking Wild His veins have gotten really bad again. So it's it's for.

14:04.53

christophknoll

Yep, our top fives are pretty similar outside of my aggressive Regan guess I but I also have yeah, that's that I'm probably going to eat my words on that one. But.

14:11.41

Paul

Yeah I'm root for the pantish for the bowl this year panish for the super bowl they're gonna win. That's like what you're saying right now like that's the equivalent.

14:21.44

christophknoll

Ah Lizn ah, you know what? no Regan's worth I'm getting um out for sure. Absolutely, it's no question. But.

14:29.44

Paul

There is the article recently. That said the panthers are the worst team in Nfl right now. Yeah, but for those that did understand that analogy. That's that's why I said that because I was like it's like saying the panther woman Super Bowl is I dode. You're really fucking aim high there.

14:44.25

christophknoll

They're they're They're not statistically eliminate eliminated yet. So.

14:48.94

Paul

Yeah, there's still. There's still a chance statistically they're going to pull it out their ass but say with Regan there's still statistically a chance he could play it really really? well. He just has to pull it the fuck off everything has to be perfect.

14:55.27

christophknoll

The up.

15:04.76

christophknoll

But I I have Derek winning obviously but then my second is hotty. But I think what's going to happen is that because of his age had he's going to basically pass the torch down to Derek and then walk off into the sunset I think we're looking at Hadty's last ah

15:06.26

Paul

Movement.

15:22.52

christophknoll

Ah, Olympia and no, no, no. But I think that it's gonna be an emotional. Yeah um I think he's gonna do it on stage there at the olympia. He's going to win second like you know how they do you know they announced that the first pale person's name.

15:22.72

Paul

Oh yeah, okay, you've been like literally he's gonna show up and just leave Um, well I I can see him retiring.

15:32.88

Paul

Truth.

15:41.40

christophknoll

And then obviously whoever's left is second because they want to do that for the dramatic effect. Um, and they're going to call. They're going to call lusford to for the win. Heidi's going to get second I think.

15:44.80

Paul

Yeah.

15:53.15

christophknoll

They're going to He's going to have some translator on stage with him and they're going to do some big thing about retiring and going up to the sunset and how whether or not he positions Derek and the other guys to be like the next generation kind of and same thing like. Big rommi's old too big rammi's got to be I want to say he's 39 or something like that and so um I I think that we've got a couple guys on their way out and obviously big rammi's not competing competing this year but I think if he did he would be.

16:13.61

Paul

I don't know Asia.

16:28.50

christophknoll

Kind of in the same boat because you know there's there's only certain unless you're on like a winning streak. There's no reason to keep doing it late into you know your late 30 s and even into your 40 s like Ronnie's situation was different because Ronnie was on a winning streak. Um, and so like there's only. Very specific reasons to keep doing it because you're really messing yourself up when you're you know, continuing to aggressively push especially on men's open side once you get into those later years. So I think that hadie is gonna you know, walk off into the sunset after this one. Um. Then obviously I have my aggressive Regan push in the in the three hole which is I'm going to eat my words on that one but I really want it to happen. Um, and then I got Nick Walker a hunter lebrada that fills out my top 5.

17:10.44

Paul

Who.

17:15.92

Paul

Okay, yeah I mean so I looked it up hotty is actually 36 he's a lot younger than I expected I thought he was almost forty now but he's 36 and then robb me at 39

17:24.37

christophknoll

No I know but I think I think that yeah I think that if hadie doesn't win. He's gonna call it because if he wins that starts a winning and then you have to keep going. But if he gets second or even worse I think that.

17:34.60

Paul

Yeah I can see that. Yeah.

17:43.48

christophknoll

Ah, think he's going to call it quits.

17:43.97

Paul

I could see that and it would may I wouldn't be surprised if he if he does retire if he doesn't win if he wins I mean obviously he's got to keep going but and he I mean of course he wants to win. He wants to bring that honor back to the Middle East and all that. But yeah, so we'll see how that goes but we can. Ah.

17:49.94

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah.

17:58.43

christophknoll

Can you imagine I was going to say can you imagine you saw how big the I mean he got a statue in everything for winning it once can you imagine if he breaks off like five in a row how wild Iran would be going for him like.

18:03.38

Paul

But.

18:12.68

Paul

Ah, yeah I would be nuts. Yeah, it would be it would be nuts.

18:16.52

christophknoll

It would be insane this you they have they they would make like a um if you ever think of like the old Greek ah like pillar statues. 1 of the giant like twenty foot tall ones. It.

18:28.40

Paul

Yeah, they did they make one for him or was that big Romi or something then they yeah okay yeah, assuming like that giant like.

18:35.67

christophknoll

No, no, they they they have 1 for haughty but it's a ten foot one um it's still massive. Don't get me wrong, but they're going to do like enormous ones for him. Yeah exactly. But it's but it's one of his like ah.

18:47.14

Paul

Jesus Statue in in rio where it's like is arms been spread out is looking over Iran. It's a front double like yeah, that'd be interesting to see but ah yeah I looked at ah I completely forgot sista doubt I what? ah.

18:55.59

christophknoll

Bicep pulls. Ah.

19:05.19

Paul

On classic this year for for men's open completely forgot. He did that um arnold classic to show the arnold classic. Yeah I know he didn't win classic now. He wons open. Yeah no, he he won? No no, no. Um so yeah I forgot he won a ar classic men's open last year and ah.

19:07.85

christophknoll

Classic you said oh I was I was going to say he's these are open. Yeah.

19:25.13

Paul

So I mean we'll see how he places I think youll play really well but we'll see how that goes so moving on. We should probably just move on to the next one really um the big one.

19:35.36

christophknoll

We should do well I was gonna say why don't we do men's physique just because that's gonna be more of a onesided conversation then we can just get into classic um because those who don't know like I I love bodybuilding I'm but I'm very invested in the world. But.

19:41.73

Paul

All right? yeah.

19:52.80

christophknoll

And hurt it like I just can't get invested in men's physique. Um, and it's you know to each their own like it's this is a very judgmental sport and just I can't get into it but that's like Paul's shit right there so gonna gonna let getting let him you know, go off on it.

20:05.26

Paul

here's the here's the good news. Yeah, so the good news is with men's physique now the weight cap for the heights they all they all compete at the same time right? So there's no like when you do men' physique. There's no like height classes. You know. Just an npc there's no height classes in in pro competitors or pro competitions for mins physique they all go out at the same time essentially um so like national in regional shows. You have the height classes. But when you're competing a pro you could be stating. You could be 5 six then an extra six foot 3 guy I mean it just. All just depends on you know who you end up standing next to so in the show in in men's'sique now the weight caps have gone a lot higher. Ah for men's physique in general. It's a lot heavier than a lot of people thought. Ah, which does you know push some people out my coach now has to do classic because he'd be too heavy for his weight cap for his height I mean he'd be over the weight cap. But it also really does give a lot of guys a lot of size I mean I know guys who could put on over £20 of muscle essentially for the show and still be under their weight cap. You know so and they're pros too. So like these guys can put out a lot of size. Also I want to say the Vp. The guy who announces let me look up his name I always forget I think it's the Alex or something. Um.

21:35.98

Paul

Let's see ah I don't even know what to look up but it's like the ibb guy whonounces shit this guy this guy wait ah T Manion yep Tyler Manion so he's the 1 whonounces shit. Ah, for the ifbb I want to say I have to look back in the video. He's talking about men's Physique weight caps I want to say he actually said that the legs aren't necessarily gonna be judged but they're gonna be taken into account for overall proportions. So. They're not going to reward chicken legs. You know, like that's going to hurt you you got to have a proportionate body. You got to be able to stretch out your board shorts. You got to you know the board are getting shorter and shorter shorter basically each year and they start to require that like you can't have baggy shorts anymore. That's a requirement now you have to have tight shorts.

22:12.80

christophknoll

Yeah.

22:28.98

Paul

Ah, which makes sense so men's suze is going to get a lot more respect most likely going forward. Everybody's going to get bigger and bigger legs. A lot of men's Suze guys are goingnna get bigger in size as well and we'll see if the poseing goes in any direction. But I mean. Men'sysi really is becoming like true bodybuilders. It's it's only a little bit so a little bit smaller than classic Zeke literally at the end of the day so we did talk about that. You know my weight cap would be 11 men's seek to 19 in classics I mean the difference in weight you know, right? There is really It's a lot but it's also not as much as people think you know so it's people would expect like another fifteen twenty pounds at least. But it's only 10 so granted, you could be the same weight from 1 show to the next and have a completely different physique. You know the weight doesn't really matter too too much but you could put on that weight and be okay. With that being said, men's Phsique top 5 ah is gonna be difficult because a lot of these guys who competed in the last year's Olympia let me look up to you results? Um, last year's Olympia um, and for those that competed. Ah. This year throughout the year to get qualified for the olympia they competed separately a lot of the time. So. It's hard to say like who's gonna place where um, so like for instance, last year it was Aaron banks.

23:59.33

Paul

Then it was Brandon Hendrickson then as Dieago Montenegro where they place this year is hard to say just because you know like ah Cory Morris improved a lot between last year's Olympia and this year's olympia you know so hard to say. Where he's going to place and when they do completee these pro shows. It's it's like how do we compare them because there are 2 different shows. So really the only ones we could really compare like directly as of recent was Aaron Banks and Karen Holden because Kyron Holden who got ah six last year at the olympia with Aaron Winning Karen B Aaron at a recent pro show. So Aaron got second and Kayen got first which is fucking awesome I'm so happy to see that. Ah you know Aaron has a crazy physique but at the same time I just really don't think you should be rewarded. Just off his personality alone. The dude's just not a good guy at all I know that should not be taken to account in shows but it makes you root against them. You know it's it's.

25:07.20

christophknoll

Yeah, but I mean you can't avoid it because the the whole point of bodybuilding is judgment like that like we we judge the physical aspects and if you're predisposed to someone in a negative way. You naturally can't view their physique in ah in a good light.

25:11.37

Paul

Of course, of course.

25:18.99

Paul

Fun.

25:23.65

christophknoll

And whether it's it's kind of like trying to find an unbiased jury for a murder trial regardless of whether or not people are invested in it if someone if like if the person on and again this is an obscure example. But if someone is on trial for like murdering a kid. You are never going to find a jury. That will look favorably upon that person even if they're not invested in it and again super obscures. Ah example, but the point being is that with you know, such a negative you know, mindset and personality and we've talked about him in the Past. Um, but.

25:46.74

Paul

Um, yeah.

26:00.50

christophknoll

When you have that it's impossible to truly look at him in ah in a you know positive light physically regardless of if he brings the best package or not.

26:09.58

Paul

Yeah, he has a phenomenal physique. Don't get me wrong like I think his physique looks insane. His back is like it looked like it was three d printed it even looked real like it was so symmetrical smooth in the in his recent pro show that he got second it doesn't look fucking real. Um, but I root against him just because of who he is as a person. You know, just he's not a nice guy. So I just wrote against him if he wins I understand I completely understand why you know physically he's he's a fucking specimen but you know just as a person I don't I don't like you know him I guess it's just from what I've seen and what I've heard him say and stuff like that. So. Excuse me guys I'm just um, getting over cold here with that being said I do actually have Aaron as first for the olympia. Ah I'll talking to someone recently and he made a good point. He said ah Aaron didn't even look like he was 100 % kron looked 100 % at the show. Aaron didn't look a hundred percent he still had some. He had some room to to work with you know he had some. He had some potential additional fat to come off. Um mainly in his obliques. Really I mean once I saw his obliques I'm like all right Aaron his obliques and his lower back was really where he struggled the most. Which I mean when we're talking about these guys. We're talking like you'll never see someone in person as lean as you guys. These guys are on stage like even like 10 place is leaner than you'll ever see walking on the street but with that being said, just when you're comparing all these guys together Aaron could have lost a little bit of fat in his lower back.

27:25.69

christophknoll

Oh yeah.

27:38.52

Paul

His obliques could have had a little bit more work I think really just came down to water most likely. But again at the same time like he still has some work to work room to work with for that reason I point my first because he has the time and the ability to do that I do have Kyron Holden that second I think he's. Gotten crazy since last year ah he has put on some size. He's actually supposed to compete in classic for a lot of the shows this year but he decided to move back to men's physique so he's got the size. We know that he's got the conditioning dude look fucking insane at his recent pro show I think he's got a phenomenal physique I absolutely love his physique. I think it looked great. Ah, for third I have Bret and Hendrickson he play second last year for the olympia I believe he won a pro show this year as well. So it's very possible. He could place top 3 I would not be surprised if you play second again, he looks great every time he competes. So we'll see how that goes I have fourth Ryan Terry he won seventh last year at the Olympia Ryan Terry is kind of like Regan a little bit like for Youof I'm kind of just like root for him because he's like the only fucking white dude up there. So I'm rooting for the white guy because men's whoik. Is dominated by black physiques and that's just a reality when it comes to aesthetics ah and something like men's physique oftentimes. Ah you know african american descent. You know african descent african lineage has much more.

29:14.87

Paul

Ability to to have that physique you know so men's physique is great for guys who have african ancestors with that being said, there are a few very very aesthetic and very successful white guys Ryan Terry's one of them. He looks great. He's done a lot for the division. He's done a lot for the competition in general. He's got a lot of followers. You know he's got He's got a big fan base four and a half million followers on Instagram that's the most that they got of any men's physi competitor so he he's got a lot of people backing him. He's done a lot He's a nice guy for what I've seen.

29:45.79

christophknoll

Ah.

29:50.43

Paul

You know he's always got a smile on his face. So I root for him heavily could he place top 5 absolutely I could totally see him place in top 5 will he plays top 3 that's another conversation I mean it's it's gonna be hard for in place top 3 but I would be really happy to see him place top 3 obviously I want him to place the best he can. Um, there are a lot of guys this year that I think given more time could potentially win the olympia going forward? Um, and manual hunter is one of them I don't have him in top 5 but I could totally see him getting top 5 not too long from now same with um I just had his name. Oh Ben Quil pierre um I could see him placing really really well soon he doesn't have the size I don't think yet but conditioning ab fucking lutely. The dude is dice of the gills. Ah so with that being said I want to say I have fifth Andre Ferguson Andre has improved a lot since last year's olympia he took some time off I believe before last last year's Olympia anyways. So he you know put on some size put on a little bit of fat I believe so with this year's Olympia coming around having done more competitions having focused more on the olympia. Ah, think you could place really well and people forget for a while they're like 20142015 something like that and for quite a few years Andre and Brandon Hedrickson so Audre Ferguson brand and hendrickxson were're going at it 1 in 2.

31:21.29

Paul

And it it fought back and forth between like you know Olympia or on classic pro show or stuff like that. So. It looks like a feud is like a they even they even ah talked about on generation iron I believe it was either 2 or 3 generation. Um, where they like. Interviewed both and talked to both and talk to them how they're doing and whatnot. You know how they're doing. You know their competitions and everything and like it really was like you know a battle is the way they kind ofrayed it. So I'm hoping Andre places top 5 breon just came in better a lot better last year I mean Andre got tenth where Brandon got second. So. Based off that alone I put Brandon higher than Andre but I am hoping that Andre places not 5 so that's physique for you. Sos Aaron Banks Kyron Holden Bri and Hendrickson Ryan Terry and then Andre Ferguson that's my top 5 but again.

32:02.61

christophknoll

Yeah.

32:13.80

Paul

I think 2 through 5 could be really anything probably 3 through 5 could really be anything or anyone but I think top two I still em very very heavy towards Aon Banks winning and then I think Kyron could definitely get second in my opinion but we'll see we'll see how it goes there's a lot other guys that could play in.

32:27.82

christophknoll

Yeah, and I was going to say to a lot of and we the reason why we keep saying is we will see is because it's truly a day-to-day sport. So like you know one day someone will come in better than the other person and regardless of how they've been posting or how. Their first session went like everything is day-to-day so anything could change and that's why ah so much of it is up in the air.

32:49.50

Paul

Um, yeah, it's like judging it's like saying who you think so imagine imagine for anybody listening who doesn't fully grasp it imagine football right? Imagine all you've seen is the results.

33:09.10

Paul

Of like last year's games. All you see is they're practicing and then you have to predict who's going to win this super bowl. It's it's kind of what it is because like a lot of these guys aren't competing throughout the year a couple of them are um, you know to get qualified stuff like that. Ah.

33:16.30

christophknoll

Yeah.

33:28.13

Paul

And all you see is like photos and training and stuff like that. So. It's like you gotta kind of use the materials you're given to kind of make a guesstimate of who who's gonna place where but then at the end of the day. It's not a team sport. It's not like you could probably better predict who's gonna win the super bowl than you can predict like. Out of a hat. Basically if you didn't know any of these names you couldn't pick who's gonna be the olympia like you have a better chance of predicting the super bowl just because it's a team sport. You know it's not up to one person. You could have 1 guy not playing the best and still win where in bodybuilding if you don't show up your best you're gonna you're gonna get destroyed. So.

33:57.51

christophknoll

Yeah.

34:05.23

Paul

It's all individual. So it's all just depends on you know how they peak and all of that's why I kept mentioning that peaking is basically where you're full but also low in fat. You don't get waterlogged at all. You don't take on anything prior to the show. Um, there's a lot that goes into there's so many variables you know your your insulin sensitivity your glycogen storage. Um your water intake whether or not you shed it. You know your digestion your bowel movements. Ah your urination, everything takes into account your salt intake. Everything goes into a show I mean even just like when the show is can play a role. You know your lecture lights plays a role it's all that plays a role so like these guys every bodybuilder competitor. Even if you're an expert. You still have a coach to guide you and help you through the process. And these coaches are paid because they know how peaks work and they know how these things work. So Aaron Banks works with this guy named his Instagram name is cuts I forget his name actual name butd he's cuts. That's his name. Um, he got a nickname because he got stabbed like 10 times or something like that like ten years ago so I forget when it was but.

35:11.39

christophknoll

Our ship.

35:13.51

Paul

That's why you got these nickname cuts. Yeah, he got stabbed a bunch of times so he survived. He's okay thank God but ah, he is known for men's phsi competitors. So he's really good at working with men'sphysic competitors. He has some classic competitors but like he's like the men's physique coach right now.

35:30.20

christophknoll

Kind of like how how how Rambod is like the men's open and classic. What guy.

35:31.52

Paul

You know he's the guy you want to go to? Yeah, he's Han Rainbod and then Milo Sakev Second I would say are like the top 2 like judges right? are not judges coaches right now cuts is like the the coach right now for men physique. Um, so.

35:46.80

christophknoll

Yeah.

35:51.40

Paul

That's you know they pay this guy probably a lot of money and he fucking gets them dialed in. You know he'll work with 1 client for 1 show and he'll look better than he ever has so that's what these guys get paid for so just however, they show up to the show is is going to entirely depend on whether or not they peek properly and then from there. Just.

35:58.57

christophknoll

A third.

36:10.37

Paul

In comparison to everybody else. You know? So I think again I think Aaron's gonna take it again this year but we'll see I want Kyron I want Ryan to take it but I don't think that's gonna happen not this year at least.

36:15.32

christophknoll

Tell you.

36:21.90

christophknoll

And then we also have a a surprise competitor in the wheelchair division I truly think that this is Christoph Noel's year to take wheelchair division. He's ah bringing in a package unlike anyone else.

36:30.70

Paul

Dumb as Chris Off No what the fuck he's walking out on stage you like.

36:40.97

christophknoll

Yeah, ah does like it does it like a double take oh shit falls over a spra tend done where wearing a speedo for for classic and has a spray done done to the bottom half it goes oh shit.

36:47.10

Paul

Yeah, you like what you like I forgot.

36:58.48

Paul

My bad. My bad if forgot to wear sweat pants. But yeah, that would be that would be bad that would cause cause a lot of problems. Um, but with that being said, the big one classic.

37:05.40

christophknoll

Of jail. Yeah I got I got some crazy stuff right? So I'm gonna go up I'm gonna go from 5 up to one because I I've got some drama at the top. So I think Terrence Ruffen brings in the 5.

37:14.40

Paul

What you thinking? so.

37:20.16

Paul

Okay, all right, Let's see let's see. Okay.

37:29.62

christophknoll

I think I mean I'm I've been coming around on Roughen I wasn't huge on him to start. But I've been coming around on him and I mean obviously it's tough to tell because so much of his stuff is filtered like his Instagram is like just pure filter. Um.

37:34.94

Paul

Okay.

37:45.31

christophknoll

So it's tough to really get a good grasp on him but he does look pretty darn good then in the four I've got I've got visitors I've got ah um, ah shit what's his first name. Um Wes Wesley Wesley visitors um I've I don't know i've.

37:56.44

Paul

Um, interesting. Yeah.

38:04.42

christophknoll

Been pulling for him for a bit. He didn't really have the size before but he looks with the with the increased size caps. He's looking big and you know he's got the the arnold mentoring. So I think that he's going to bring you know a really good, really good package. So I think for there. Um I hate that he I don't think he's going to pull through but I think Dino is in the three I I you know I was really hoping last year he would have taken it and you know dethrone bum but I think he drops I think he's in the 3 um and then this is where it gets really spicy.

38:30.21

Paul

Screw.

38:42.65

christophknoll

Um, I think that do you remember Boy ah, the only one I can think of is there is a There's an oh,, There's an olympia where arnold and this other dude were tied and like after prejudging and everything and they made the 2 dudes come out and just do a bunch of poses again. Did you ever hear about that. It was in.. The only reason I know about is because it was in his book. Um, but it might have been Yeah, but.

39:06.57

Paul

I have to look out I forget who it was was it Frank Zane boy no frank

39:16.20

christophknoll

Regardless, they after they did the judges couldn't come to a decision so they had the 2 guys come back out that's but the moral story regardless of who was against and because okay there we go? Um, but I think that.

39:25.60

Paul

Fraco. It's Franco Colombo yeah

39:32.50

christophknoll

Because of the increased size and I don't know if you've seen some of Urs's pictures he is fucking huge now and I think when and he already last year so he brought in the third best package last year and he had just gotten over a sickness so he wasn't even at 100%

39:37.70

Paul

River.

39:49.45

christophknoll

So I think him at 100% with the increased size is the the judges are not going to be able to pick originally between the him or sebum. Um, so I think they're going to come back out have a drama filled pose off in front of everybody and I do think but I do think cbum still takes it. But I think that there's going to be a lot of drama between those 2 and it's going to be like a wake up call for cbum because cbum has run this division now for 4 years and especially last year in the year before it wasn't even close. Um, but I think this year is going to be like an oh shit uz is coming into play. And then potentially setting up a next year dethroning um but I think that there's going to be a lot of drama up at the top and I think that they're going to do that kind of you know all right gentlemen come back out. We can't figure it out. Do another pose off and. I think Urs is going to give him a real darn good run for his money this year

40:48.39

Paul

Okay, interesting. So that's the that's what you're hinting at earlier. Okay, okay, interesting see so I got.

40:52.56

christophknoll

Yeah, so see Bum Ers Dino visers and roughin. That's my 1 through 5

41:05.30

Paul

See bum for first because of course um I have I think it's goingnna be not as much of a blowout as last year. But I think it's going to be clear winner. You know I think it's we're going to SeeCBum gonna be like okay for sure, he's got first. There's no, there's no question about it.

41:06.79

christophknoll

Do you think it's going to be close or do you think that it's going to be a blowout again.

41:16.30

christophknoll

Ok.

41:21.71

christophknoll

Yeah, like last year and the year before

41:23.25

Paul

But I don't think it's be like last year where it's like dude this isn't even fair like last year was like dude see was in his own division. Yeah, he was in his own division like the past you know, recent olympias like it just wasn't even it wasn't even fair to the other competitors. So um.

41:35.90

christophknoll

Well, there's there's so many like cutouts of that walkout of him doing and people don't understand like people outside of the bodybuilding world. Don't understand that when he walked out from there. The crowd was like holy fucking shit. What is this like.

41:49.42

Paul

Um, yeah, like it's it doesn't even like it doesn't make any sense like his physique is just so fucking. Absurd it just doesn't make sense.

41:55.60

christophknoll

Like everyone on the outside were looking in was like oh cool here's this cool bodybuilder walking out with some smoke entrance and everything and us sitting there like in our seats going dad. Yeah.

42:07.17

Paul

God is that god god is embodied in the bomb. He's the second coming but no I think I really think that he's gonna take first and it's gonna be clear winner again last year's sweep was pretty obvious obviously but like I think this year it's a lot of competitors are getting closer and closer to him.

42:19.59

christophknoll

I'll go.

42:26.82

Paul

Like Urs for instance I think errs is like right on top of him. Um, he's not like you know, give him like maybe another year maybe 2 at the most and like errs would be like withbo at that point I think ah, but again, we're gonna have to see how he is on stage that's gonna play a role. So ah.

42:36.62

christophknoll

Yeah.

42:45.92

Paul

From there. It's 3 through 5 is tough for me because it's like I think Brion Ainsley could even play second potentially because brion brion had that problem where the weight cap was right at the point where I was like okay do I either sacrifice some size and compete in classic.

42:53.91

christophknoll

Yeah.

43:05.10

Paul

Or do I commit and do men's open but now that they increase the weight cap for his height. He can now comfortably compete in classic and be basically the size he wants to be so like that worked out perfectly for him. It was like almost like the wakeup is design for him so brion. With a size he could put on I think he could definitely place top 3 even so like I have him like I put him as like number 6 on my list but it's a question Mark it could he could really place anywhere in the top 5 it just depends on how he shows up because he might have put on too much size and not. Focus on conditioning as much you know obviously he'd want to focus on conditioning but you know my you might have sacrificed a limited to conditioning for some size so I have him probably like realistically like third or Fourth. But then I also have like ah.

43:52.61

christophknoll

Well so I I was going to say I know you have the question Mark on him. Do you think with the added size There's any potential for him to take one I mean I know we talk about cbum really laying and like you know, being so much different than everyone else, but. For a couple years. It was it was cbum versus Brian so like I'm I'm wondering if with the added size. He might be able to bring in enough to to squeeze out ah like a sneak one or something like that.

44:13.50

Paul

Yeah.

44:22.65

Paul

Personally I think with the look of classic physique I don't think so like the classic of eysique look is almost like how close can we get to cbom is basically where we're at now like classic especially when Cbum and Briam are kind of going at it.

44:27.89

christophknoll

Yeah.

44:35.56

christophknoll

That's yeah I get that.

44:40.37

Paul

Classic was very much up in the air. It's like where do we put the classic look like what are we looking for and it's like the the focus for classic obviously was like size symmetry conditioning. It was all of it like it was like what can we do to make the best most appealing physique possible right.

44:53.41

christophknoll

That was. It was original bodybuilding.

44:59.89

Paul

But yeah, the yeah the o g sixty s and seventy s bodybuilding was what classic is today. But now that we have cbu's like okay this is what we're looking for like why does fuck lats like huge shoulders see who im can use some bigger biceps. But I mean come on.

45:09.80

christophknoll

Oh.

45:18.59

Paul

See bum. You know you know big arms tinyass fucking waist good legs. You know, crazy glute striations like that's what we're looking for. Um you put c bum next to men's open guy and he looks small Seebo open looks small next to a men's open guy.

45:20.10

christophknoll

Serve.

45:35.44

Paul

So it's not about the size. It's the overall symmetry and aesthetics of cbum that's become the classic look and that's why I could see Wesley vsers doing well in the future I could see ers doing well because they have that classic look. You know they got that crazy v taper. Crazy small wa good latinsertions for like the crazy like hourglass kind of thing they got going on so I don't like it's like brion and roughins kind of have that problem where they're on the shorter side. So it's harder for them to have that tall classic bodybuilder look.

46:09.73

christophknoll

Yeah, he's 6 one? yeah.

46:11.61

Paul

That's the problem like Cbo I think is like six foot six foot 1 something like that I think okay, yeah, so he's he's got that taller physique which is kind of what classics becoming. It's almost like classic is becoming like like a tall competitors division. You know, which sucks. Because it kind of takes away from the smaller guys but like that's why like 2 12 exists is because men's opens like all right? Let's just be honest, the guys we're looking at are all like five nine at least you know so let's create 2 12 for the guys who are smaller heightwise who are shorter height wise. But. Can still have that same structure. They just can't put on the same size you know so I think like classic is kind of like that where it's like all right the look we're going for in classic is gonna require a taller physique but like ruffins and brion kind of fit into It's just not quite You know it's tough. It's. That's why they increased the weight gap but we'll see how it goes I think Brian could play really really? Well so I have him maybe third or fourth then I have ramon um and then from there I have ruffins and then after that it really just. Up to the judges I mean I'd like Franklin to play really? Well if he's competing I can't find anything whether or not he's competing because I know he got second against ruffins. But I can't find if he's even competing this year it doesn't say he's qualified on generation generation ireds website but.

47:28.73

christophknoll

1

47:40.50

Paul

Could change I'm not sure if he's like hitting another show or something in the meantime I haven't looked up into it before today's episode but if he was competing I would love hit for him to place top 5 I love franklin's physique but I don't think that's realistic right now. With with the competition that's going on like there's a lot of competition. Good competition classic so we'll see how that goes.

47:59.65

christophknoll

Yeah.

48:05.10

Paul

The good news is I don't have to root for an ethnicity because it's pretty mixed in classic. You know it's you got you got your spanish guys you got your your you know middle easternian guys you got your european guys you got your african guys you got every the continent covered basically in classic I mean there is no like dominant ah ethnicity there which is interesting. Usually you kind of see it going in one direction but ah in this in classic right now. It's you know sea bums white. But. That could definitely change very soon. You know Ramon from Brazil you know it's it's interesting to see that granted men's opens results the same way kind of too which is cool I like I like seeing the the difference the the mix you know? Ah, the only guys who are kind of suffering as the ah as our asian counterparts they ah.

49:00.50

Paul

Typically it's hard for them to compete in really any physique like they have the most fucking like aesthetic physiques ever. But like they can never put on. It's weird because it's like you see a lot of these asian competitors like in asian shows and they're like wow these guys look fucking crazy. But then it's like either they don't have the size compared to. The other competitors who compete like in America um, or they just don't fit into the look. It's like they're just so something just suffers. Whatever it is which sucks because there's so many great asian competitors hiti tommyat hiti tata is a great one. As an example, there's also a guy men's physique. That's a great example of that which is um yuon sung lee he's from South Korea great great physique um I do know someone I think that has him in top 5 actually so I wouldn't be surprised if places really? Well There's also Maine Chase I who's from Taiwan. So I mean it's it's interesting to see that. But right now us Whitey's got ah maybe men's open with Derek and for sure classic recebum.

50:05.63

christophknoll

I think it's funny with with sebum is that you know he's canadian but with his tan when he steps on stage. You cannot tell he's Canadian.

50:12.63

Paul

Yeah, no I mean he lives in Florida now I mean he's not. He's not that canadian anymore. So.

50:17.90

christophknoll

No I know I know but it's still your complexion will be more like Canadians are whitey whites. You know? Yeah, he's whitey white.

50:24.37

Paul

Ri is canadian to forget that Ian right air. So many competitors are canadian people. Forget it so fucking many and somebody from Egypt too like people people associate big rami with the Middle East it's like no, he's Egyptian he's actually from Egypt. He lives in Kuwait he I mean he's not you know he's not in Egypt right now but like you know he's from Egypt. You know it's just everybody associates if you're you're Tan. You're probably from Middle East if you're white you're from America or Europe. Um, and if you're spanish you're from Brazil. Which you're not even spanish you're brazilian.

51:01.45

christophknoll

Oh well? Well big rommi got all those muscles from ah carrying water from the Nile to his family That's ah got got to carry buckets of water.

51:08.50

Paul

Yeah, yeah, you got giant buckets that's funny. Yeah, it's interesting to see the differences a lot of italy a lot of italy competitors as well. But yeah Usa just really dominates.

51:20.00

christophknoll

What what just funny because I think italian competitors are funny because you know we have our diets which are locked in like you know it's like hey you would just eat chicken rice all day and it's like the italian competors. What do you eat Mama cooked the spaghetti today.

51:25.13

Paul

But best. Well.

51:38.60

Paul

Momma made a special sauce. Ah now I if I lived in Italy I'd be fucking fat in I would love to go to Italy I Just felt think it'd be good for my health I'd get Ah I've had a car I go into Cardiac arrest by the time I leave.

51:42.73

Ah, on expect d for the seventh day in a row.

51:48.33

christophknoll

Yeah, well, there's a reason a lot of like you know prominent Italian people have fairly large bellies and whatnot you know because you're packing on so many just dense carbs when you eat.

51:53.81

Paul

Um.

52:05.24

Paul

Carbs. Yeah, how it is how it is I Ah ah I want to experience it so bad. But I want I want to go to Italy and go eat cheeses from where they originate like eat mozzella in mozzarella.

52:06.68

christophknoll

Yeah.

52:19.97

Paul

You know Eat Parmesan in Parmesan All that you know like have the O Ge's O G cheese in the actual town that they're created in because like you can't technically have real montzzarella and this is actually from Monzzarella the way it's made. Is the only way to actually have real montzzerella all the other Mozzarellas out. There aren't even real montzzarella.

52:38.30

christophknoll

And that's why I England in England I Just eat English people.

52:44.45

Paul

Oh there's just beans and toast. There's this video I saw today this guy was like this this lady was like ah all these americans you know we want to be rock stars and millionaires and the president and all that. And then she's like europeans aren't like that and he's like whoa they can't be the president because they're European but also all of us americans are millionaires and rock stars and then one of the comments goes 1 of the comments goes. Yeah I wouldn't have much ambition either. If I lived off of beans and toast I'm like damn there's so many jokes about like how. England like fought so many wars and like killed so many people for spices just to never use it in their food I'm like damn that's so good this so far. Yeah, yeah, and then just.

53:23.86

christophknoll

Yeah, yeah, the the the silk trade just to be dressed in knickers.

53:35.86

Paul

Fight everybody kill everybody just to ban guns and get stabbed all the time fucking wild country. Um, but yeah, so those are our predictions. So ah as a recap 2 through 5 on any of these could have really go any any way. So I have Derek Lusford

53:54.80

Paul

Heidi Shuin Nick Walker Huntel Librada and then samsson downa 2 through 5 There could be really any combination of those 4 classic I have seabum for first for sure. So like first for each of these I'm like yeah these guys are gonna win first like Aaron C Bum and Derek I could see winning first for sure.

54:12.77

christophknoll

Um, yeah.

54:13.90

Paul

And all their ambitions 2 through 5 I think is Goingnna be Urs Ramon roughffins and brionne how they place I don't know I think realistically I think it's gonna be u's brion ramon roughffins is what I think then men's' zeque I got Aaron Chiron Holden

54:32.58

Paul

Brean Hendrickson Ryan Terry then Andrey Ferguson I think Aaron and Aaron's going to win I think kyen's gonna be a top 3 Brean Ryan and and Andre is going to be completely up in the air Corey Morris could totally come in and fucking tickt top 5 even top 3 maybe. I could I wouldn't be surprised by that at all. Um, youd suddenly Lee could place really? well. We also got um ah what's his name myronal blank. We got fucking. Ah dieago is it yeah dgo montenegro he could play really well this year as well. He could place top 3 you know it's. Men'sique I think to me is the one that's like really up in the air for like top 5 but I still have Aaron is first and karon top 3 for sure. But that's basically my list right? there? um to 12 I still have Sean Carta winning he's just been dominating in that division. There's really no competition. There.

55:22.85

christophknoll

Hell yeah.

55:30.27

Paul

I'd like to see hadi tay immo gehi play top 3 but you know he's on the other side as well. I don't think he's gonna play super amazing. But we'll see how that goes. Um I would not be surprised if he doesn't play top 3 there's also John Jeett and Chris Jones those guys are great. Keon Pearson I could see top 3 and mins 2 12 um I could totally see now that I think about it I could totally see Keon Pearson top 3 for sure like second and third I not be surprised if Keon Pierson plays top 3 um Keyon is. If you guys wouldn't imagine his physique. He's basically shaped like a dorito like a 3 d dorito you knows like durito pops. That's how he's built. He's fucking crazy looking his shoulders are like 3 times the size of his waist dudes wild. But then with that being said, um Derek for first for sure. Hotty probably top 3 Nick Hunter and Sampson can go any direction so we'll see but that's my list get a week next time we talk to you guys. We know the move. We should know more results.

56:37.96

christophknoll

Yeah I've got ah Kevin Laron running every all of my divisions.

56:41.44

Paul

Yeah, he need he deserves it. We got to give him at least 3 medals just to make up for it.

56:54.43

Paul

Ah, you just lagged a bit there. But anyways, um, you're good. You want to go through your nice real quick. We'll call it a day.

56:54.99

christophknoll

There We go sorry yeah.

57:04.58

christophknoll

Yeah, if my own internet holds up. But ah I'll just rush through it open I got lundsford hardy Regan Walker and then Lebrada um Regan Grimes come on baby. Don't don't make me my words and then classic I just got.

57:16.71

Paul

57:22.10

christophknoll

Then I got classic sebum Ers Dino visers and roughffin.

57:29.35

Paul

Okay, all right. We'll see how this goes I'm excited for this year's Elopia I think it's the competitions getting fiercer I think especially men's suzek men's sui can getting so fucking crazy. Um, so I'd be interesting to see so I'm excited for this here's Olympia. Well.

57:37.67

christophknoll

Yeah, for sure.

57:47.71

Paul

Next time we'll talk. Maybe maybe we could try to see if we could record on Sunday maybe to go over the results were quick ah because Sunday next weekend. Everything will be done Saturday and Friday Friday Saturday is when everything happens so we'll ah maybe touch base Sunday next week and tell you guys what we think of the results. Um. Obviously like I mean I'm not going to pay the pay for the pay view I'm not going to sit there watch I usually just watch the highlights you know I just watch the finals and then I look at pre-judging photos really at the end of the day I don't really pay for most like videos. Ah, the only ones I paid for is like people that I know who are competing um it to me. It's. Like I'd rather just see the actual competition itself. There's a lot of stuff that goes on between like shows are so fucking long people don't realize that shows are very long. So ah, it's hard for me to sit down and watch shows like that. So I'll probably won't pay for pay for the paper view I'll probably just look at the highlights afterwards. And then ah, we'll talk about the results.

58:48.90

christophknoll

Hell yeah I'll find an illegal stream of it and just watch the whole thing.

58:51.12

Paul

I think I looked at hub I think I looked it up last year I think they're they're out there. They're sure sure for sure out there I wonder who's gonna be the announcer this year I don't know if it's gonna be drain Johnson again I think he did it last year I think.

58:55.40

christophknoll

Oh for sure. Absolutely.

59:04.49

christophknoll

I would love it if ah I would love it if Bruce what's his name Bruce but biff. Ah I forget his name that the mma guy. Um, that would be all that would be electric if.

59:14.35

Paul

Oh yeah, the are you ready to rumble guy.

59:21.82

christophknoll

If Bruce did it. He he takes his job so seriously.

59:23.38

Paul

I Want to say I want to say he actually did it at one point I could be wrong. Let me look this up just to be um.

59:31.29

christophknoll

I'm blanking on his last name but his first name's Bruce.

59:37.88

Paul

Me see.

59:46.97

Paul

I yeah, there's no like list of like of like ah guys who've announced the olympia and stuff like that. The big one is Bob Cchirilo such citarillo I don't know do know Dwayne Johnson did it 1 year as well. But um, yeah, we'll see. We'll see who is who's doing it this year I know a lot of the like commentators on the judging side of things like um Ray Lewis I think has done it a lot. Um. And then usually it's like it's usually like previous competitors. It's like if you ever watch racing the guys who comment on the races have almost guaranteed competed in the actual race. So like f 1 the 3 guys who like 3 or 4 guys who actually like commentate on this on the races have raced f one say with indie racers all that.

01:00:37.40

christophknoll

Yeah.

01:00:40.17

Paul

Raced in the car so they'll say like what it's actually like doing it and what those guys are going through so like a lot of the time the the guys commentating on the posing and all of that actually competed in the olympia so they have more insight as to the process and all of that which makes sense you know.

01:00:55.87

christophknoll

Well for for a while there was a triple h from WW was always was doing ah the olympia stuff there. Yeah.

01:01:03.86

Paul

That's pretty sick I mean it's a huge. It's a huge competition people don't realize how big it is. It's fucking huge like Dwayne Johnson like that's crazy. He's he's like the biggest actor in the world right now. Anybody everybody knows who Wayne Johnson is

01:01:16.61

christophknoll
