For example, a person like you can take something Phil says and think it is the greatest thing ever bc u you like Phil. If kai had said the exact same thing on the other hand you could hate him for it and call him every thing but his name.
Kai is hands down the most intelligent professional bodybuilder i have ever heard talk. He understands philosophy and logic he is a college graduate in something related to bodybuilding and posing which is art, and is well spoken and proves the exact point he is trying to make when he is trying to speak. On the other hand most other pros talk like they are jocks or like they have a high school diploma and they don't really care what you think, and they dont think about what they say before they actually say it. SO you don't like kai because he is an intelligent thinker is what it boils down to really.
And for the record what the hell have you done/accomplished that says you deserve to even comment on who deserves an O title? Stop hating on something you think you understand.
The people who want bodybuilding to be mainstream are usually pussies because they wouldnt mind wattering down or adding lipstick and mascara the sport so that the rest of society pays slightly more attention to it. Bodybuilding is badass and hardcore. A reason why i would like bodybuilding to be more mainstream is so people wont judge me based on my attraction to the sport but i would rather be an outcast than to comform to society's views of a ideal physique.
... Next thing you know, Mr.Olympia will end up looking like David Beckham's skinny ass . Screw the embassador BS, ronnie speaks miles better than he did when he was actually competing... and he still isnt a great speaker, but i still love hearing him speak because he is a living legend in the sport.
I have a picture of myself standing next to Phil Heath and these are a few comments people left on my myspace.
"BUT I DONT WANA GET THAT BIG"
"LMAO!! See dude this is totally not right!! This is why I don't find these guys attractive ....LMAO OMG..can't stop laughing"
"EW that should be illegal"
OK... now that picture was taking over a year and a half ago, when he won the Ironman. These are comments people left on 1 photo on my myspace, i dont have that many friends on there. That was a smaller phil than now....
I meant that, if Phil wins, it's gonna be better for the future of bodybuilding in terms of aesthetics, lines, shape..etc.
And if you still mentioned about people's thoughts when they are looking at a bodybuilder, let's say they're looking at a Mr.O okay, then what they will think after they find out that he did G4P in his past, aside the roids stuff, hmm? imo the "roids stuff" is more acceptable if i can say so, okay they're called cheaters - okay, so what? everyone is using them in lots different sports, BUT with a G4P past, how they will call them? fags? that's worse than the "steroids" problem lol.
As far as Phil winning.... Its not a better future for bodybuilding, its the same thing. People have always preffered good aesthetics, lines, and shape.. Phil is moving up because he has these features, he is not changing the sport as he goes along. We will always have bodybuilders with those types of genetics and we will always have bodybuilders with freakier genetics and the best bodybuilders will still win regardless if they do or dont have impressive lines in their genetic structure.
I can see if you meant that it will be better coz we will have a more aesthetic man at the top... But where will people like jay or kai fit? do u think phil winning is going to make Jay or Kai lose to more aesthetic, better lined, better shaped athletes with far less muscularity and conditionning? Bodybuilding will always be about conditioning and muscularity, and the guys who can acheive this while having good lines will be at the top. Its not like bodybuilders are going to change their genetics and its not like we are not gonna reward guys like Jay, Kai, or Ronnie for that matter. A guy like ronnie can come along and CRUSH aesthetics, and he will prove that bodybuilding didnt change for the "better" after Phil won.
@ tkd: you really dont like gays, do you? everytime there is a discussion about kai, you bring this G4P thing up and talk about it like its the worst crime... seriously, he didnt hurt anybody, he posed nude and fucked a grape fruit... whats the big deal?
lets just get over it, and appreciate what kai brings to this sport!!!
LOL, what i've been trying to say is that it's disrespectful if a guy with Kai's past, wins the biggest show in bb, what credibility will have then the "sport" of bodybuilding.
I agree that the best guy should win though, but how many times did that happen? Kai's past aside and all, simply i just see him, like Tim said once, an average bb'er on the list for the contenders for the O.
Guys I think the whole "ambassador thing" ain't real at all.I mean it's good thing the reigning Mr. Olympia is a man who can put a phrase with sense together and relate to normal people or people into the sport, but ain't gonna make BB acceptable, for the majority of the earth population it's just big men pumped up by roids with mental issues.We don't need to get mainstream.We need to stick with what the sport is and bring it on despite what the others might think.Sure Kai may not be very "clear" when he speaks, but if you check his interview after the AC victory and see his whole history, you will see that with his background I found acceptable things he has done, and I support his whole being "off the world" sometimes, this guy earned everything he got and started with really nothing, no family, no friends, no money.He would be a great Olympia has Phil cause of what he achieved, against the odds, which in this sports are very, very hard.
