I think the guy has talent and is a great poser,but is a little too over the top for me. I always thought Dorian was an underrated poser, ignoring the obvious choices such as Corney, Arnold, Melvin etc..

some it comes off over the top, most of it comes off as pure 100% fucking genius!

check out the first video. as he comes out..VERY stylish and smooth. genius. then he does that little "look back" <- over the top.  BUT, then he truns back around and does that skip with the hand shake ...oh my god dude..that little move, so subtle, but it adds so much style and smootheness to his intro. FUCKING GENIUS ! i could watch that again and again and again..its like a tupac song bro. it doesnt get old.

I don't know, he moves good and looks good while doing it.  But there is something ridiculous about the way he moves.   I guess I'd call it.... kinda gay (in danger here of sounding too 'getbig').

I vastly prefer Ed Corney.  Moves in a 'powerful' way, if that makes any sense?

Kai Green is a very interesting poser for sure - I'm not sure if I like it and it's certainly not my favourite but you can't deny it's an original and unique style of posing. Very clever to watch.

I always preferred guys that move gracefully to music and let their bodies flow with it - like Shawn Ray and sometimes Flex Wheeler. Vince Taylor was also great too in his own way. There aren't many others that come to mind.

the only thing about corney is he really doesnt have much sense of the "4th wall" (as kai calls it)...  what that means is that he doesnt really realize what the audience is viewing.... he hits these amazing poses, but in order for them to be realized, you have to view them from different vantage points than where the camera (and audience) is...  its like... he doesnt realize that to his right and left and behind him; no one can see hgim...

Kai's routines are pretty entertaining, but I like the more classical posing like corney's.  I understand what you are saying though

I definitely like Corney better, Kai posing isnt really posing it just looks like dancing, Kai does hardly any poses. Corney transitions from one pose to the next and is continually posing

I have to agree........saw him at the Emerald Cup a few years back and he was amazing. Classic style routine without all this dancing we see now.

Vince Taylor   he's the one THEY ALL coppied..(91 Mr.O)..you know the first pose slowley to slow music   then hit shots form side  to side of the stage to rap or fast music.   Now its like a mandatory thing for most guys.

Yes.

ANYONE who dances, pops or locks during a routine should autimatically be dismissed from consideration

corney is definitely the best poser of his era and maybe of all time.especially when talking about classic posing.a lot of the modern competitors that are known as good posers are more entertaining and incorporate a lot of dance moves.dorian was real good,as was Arnold at displaying a very professional routine without being to fancy.some of the great posers were,dickerson,vince taylor,melvin Anthony,kai greene,and boyer coe.

This was bodybuilding and posing : 1982, London, Mr Olympia

Best poser : Mohamed Makkawy (just my opinion)
