Who I'd like to win:
How I think it will be:
Has already been done here:
But looking at Heath and Dex standing right next to him and they looked to have him. I can see Jay winning, can't see him lower than 4th, but I see Dex and Phil as the Top 2.
1.) Phil Heath
2.) Dexter Jackson
3.) Kai Greene
4.) Jay Cutler
5.) Victor Martinez
Phil Heath is the modern day Flex Wheeler. Not only is he a genetic wonder, he is the chosen one. He has the look and that wow factor that everybody seems to love. The major difference today is there will be no Ronnie Coleman coming out of no where to take the title. As much as I love Kai Greene for everything he is. He is no Ronnie Coleman.
That being said Dexter being the reigning Mr. Olympia will only fall as low as second, which now opens up 3rd place which will probably end up being more controversial than the winner of the show. No matter what Jay Cutler ends up looking like, he will never be able to match Kai Greene on conditioning. With Kai's added size he is also every bit as big as the former champ. So I really do not see him being able to take out Kai. This leaves Jay in 4th, still able to hold off a not yet 100% Victor Martinez who will end up being 5th.
Obviously this is just my opinion. I do try to base my statements on the most rational or logical form of thinking. I try my best to take my own bias out of the equation. Sure I would love to say my boy Kai Greene is going to come in and smash everybody. This would not be realistic though. I think we should all try to take our own feelings of who we like and dislike out of this to attempt to formulate a more accurate reading of what may happen that day.
At the end of the day though, trying to make sense of a subjective sport like this is rather complex.
Dex won't go any lower than 2nd, and i think Phil will beat him. If Jay nails his condition he's still a beast so 3rd. 4th and 5th are Kai's and Wolf's if Victor doesn't have legs.
