Looks like a great list of competitors already.

As for the poll, can and should he win another Mr O? Only if he deserves it, I hope the judges just do not hand it to him this time.
But I put no because he has not really nailed his conditioning in a while and is a dying breed in a changing sport.

Can Jay win? I think he can. He is not my pick to win but I certainly think he is capable of winning but I hope it only happens if he nails his conditioning.

I think with Dex competing so much, Heath has a much better chance at beating him. Also, if Vic can somehow manage to pull it together after this ordeal Dex will not beat him.

With a healthy quad Vic will beat Dex.... without one...

i don't know why the judges feel jay's blocky and asymetrical (quads, arms) physique deserves to be crowned the best physique in the world. dennis wolf to me should be the ideal for a pro physique: huge, proportioned, spot on conditioning, and aesthically pleasing. jay just looks like a fridge. i really really hope politics are brushed aside and they give it to the deserving man this year :ughfingers:

This is so hard to predict but I'll hit something...

1. Jay. He will win no matter what. It's fucked up but what can you do... But I hope that Jay will come in RIPPED.
2. Victor. If he can train 100% after the surgery.
3. Wolf. I really think that Wolf can make his way all the way up to the top 3.
4. Dexter. Could be 3rd...
5. Kai. It would be great to see Kai in the top 6.
6. Heath/Gustavo. Phil could make his way to top 6, but I think it will go to Gustavo if he is ripped.

i've already told it many times: wolf is the one real alternative to jay cutler.
anyway i saw pics of him (in an old thread) where he looked really bad.
about that pics everybody claimed he had not been training since the olympia.
basing my judge on that photos i really start to question about his chances of improvement?
what do you all think about? is he so gifted to be allowed to rest a lot after the olympia?

how can you place kai before phil?
he'll be lucky if he enters the top 10.
dex will disappoint everyone has supported him in these recent competitions because he will be outmassed as always.

And you still haven't told us why.
d.capodiferro said:

Why? He placed immediately behind him at the AC this past year and has made as incredible of off-season improvements as anyone (including Phil).
d.capodiferro said:

He will disappoint everyone that supported him? Way to be overly dramatic and obscenely harsh for this scenario. Dexter clearly improved in the short time between the 2007 Olympia and the 2008 AC so there's no point in saying he's incapable of making further strides in his physique. Of course, that's not to say he will be changing anything drastic in the coming months but I'm not sure how you can so assuredly rule out one of the best three bodybuilders in the world from at least achieving something new.

Wolf has an incredible frame, but his conditioning was not spot on at all. He still needs big time improvements in his back, and especially his hamstrings. Once he does, he will be very tough to beat.

This I will completely agree with. It's still Jay's show to lose though.

^^As IS said, an improved Wolf will be very hard to beat. Judging by the improvements Wolf made from 06' to 07' I am really hoping he can bring up those weak points enough to be a firm contender for the title this year. He is very young and I see no reason, especially after a year off, why he cant come in and win this show.
