Not because he came in off, I realize that happens sometimes.
It's the fact that he appeared to "give up" at the finals. It looked as if he only did half of his posing routine, he spent more time walking around slowly than posing in the final posedown, his presentation was awful, and it looked as if he "let himself go" (holding far more water for the finals).
Many people probably don't realize this, but after prejudging Kai was only 8 points away from Jay Cutler, 3 points away from Dexter Jackson, and 3 points AHEAD of 2nd place finisher Branch Warren. (that would make him third place after prejudging) Not only that, but Kai almost let himself drop to 5th place...beating Phil Heath by only one point!
Kai is still my favorite bodybuilder, but he looked like a quitter Saturday night.
