6276  Getbig Womens Area / Figure, Bikini and Fitness Discussions / Meriza Goncalves Profile and Pics on: August 21, 2006, 09:24:44 PM

Met Meriza earlier in the year here at Lonnie Teper's NPC Jr. California where she was helping a friend get in shape for the show, and also helping out at the Instone booth. We didnt realize how good she was herself.

At the 2006 Los Angeles Champions, she won the A class, and at the 2006 NPC USA's, she placed 2nd in the A class! Congrats!

Here is a profile and pics or Meriza on Hardbody.com

Well - pretty good interview with Paul Dillett - have known Paul for a long time, and Paul always can come with with some good stories, including some that are way too graphic for a family oriented internet radio show.  Paul has had some wild times in his life, in Vegas, with Lee priest, with Chris Cormier, and more...



Here is Paul Dillett with Chris Cormier at where I work sometime in 1995 or so. I wish Paul the best in the Montreal Pro Show, and although Paul has put some pretty big words there, it will be nice to see him in the top three there.

But will Paul pose correctly....

Tatoos? Any symbolic meanings on them? How many?

Three of them. I got my tattoos when I was 18. A friend of mine did them for me. There are no symbolic meanings for me about them. I was young and dumb. One of them are Japanese symbols which translate into 'Live a long life of blood and guts'. Which to me means live hard and train hard. If you work hard, and train hard, it will lead to a long prosperous life.

i cant believe that's the same person who won his 1st two pro shows. he looks nothing like he did. most pros look fatter, but at least bigger, and you can see how they'd look if dieted down. phil looks like a guy competing at a local show. he still has nice shape, but fuckking A.

Well - hence the world of a bodybuilder on contest day and on offseason.  For offseason, Phil looks great. The guy just won two pro shows, went to Hawaii and proposed to his girl, and is enjoying with new Met-Rx contract and everything that goes with it. It would be crazy for Phil to stay in contest ready shape in the offseason - for what reason? It only matters on that Saturday on the day of the contest. He is not going to compete at the Olympia, but is instead concentrating on winning the 2007 Arnold Classic, going head to head with Dexter.

Quote
dude looks like shit for a professional bodybuilder. i have no idea why all the hype over this kid.


It called conditioning, symmetry, and character. Obviously, he is not a mass monster freak, nor chooses to be. But if he can only get better when he is in contest shape, he will be a force to be reckoned with.

Quote
Phil Heath is the "second coming" of Flex Wheeler! The Savior of symmetry and "bodybuilding" has come!!! Why do you think I called him a wannabe Wheeler? Bottom line is, he can't even compare to Flex, especially at Flex's signature pose

Flex Wheeler was just on Muscle Radio, and like Phil Heath, as a rookie, did some incredible things. Comparing Phil Heath to Flex is a great honor.

Quote
I have to agree he is going to get crushed at a big show

2007 Arnold - he should be one of the youngest on the stage, and will be in the top 5.

Quote
I will say that conditioning is the main reason he looked like he did and drugs obviously, but I give him credit for the conditioning.

Correct - even Darrem Charles was stunned by the quality of Phil Heath.




6280  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Interview: George Farah on King / Europa Show on: August 19, 2006, 03:27:58 PM
Just a few questions of George Farah - perhaps a top three finalist at the Europa show, who might kick out King Kamali for a top three coveted placings here. King vs. Farah... let the battle begin...



What did you think of the NY Pro show?

It was a really nice show, and many people know that I wasnít really preparing for that show. My plan was to peak and do some damage at the Toronto Pro show. But I hurt my back at the end of winter. I slipped, that took me 4 weeks out of the gym, because I promised Shawn Ray that I was going to do his show, but I ended up that I couldnít do it.  To top it off,  I was training very heavy doing legs and stuff, because the judges always tell me that I gotta bring my hamstrings up. So I am going like crazy, doing some crazy weights, and I popped something in my hamstrings, and it turned out to be black and blue in a couple of hours, so I had to go and get an MRI, because that got me worried. It was only a tear in the fiber, so it wasnít a tendon or something like that. But that kind of put me out of the gym, but I figured it was ok, because it was 5 weeks away from the Toronto Pro Show. Next thing I know, they cancelled the Toronto Pro show.

So now, I have a hamstring injury, I couldnít really do any legs, I have a tear in my hamstrings, and all that stuff came together, and I was like, oh my god, I only have a few weeks to get ready for the NY Pro.  I figured I had been dieting, and I didnít want to waste all the time of dieting and not do a show. So I said, you know what, Let me jump on the wagon. I know I can do it. I am always in shape. Like you saw me off season.  I donít get fat like some other people.

So I decided to do the NY Pro,  up my cardio, did what I gotta do, and between me and you, I thought that I had very good conditioning, and I was surprised I wasnít in the top 5. For the first time, I felt, like I got a little bit overlooked, but I could have been higher.  This is coming from a few judges, who said to me that we did have you in 5th place, but we canít really explain to you what happened. 

After prejudging, I asked Jim Manion, as I value his opinion, and he said to me, George, you were there, you were in shape, but you were not your usual self. You werenít sharp like you were at the North Carolina show. You know what, no big deal. But then I was talking to 2 or 3 other judges who said I was in 5th place after the prejudging,  so I felt better, I was on the run, I am on the money. Then the night show comes, and King Kamali and Bill Wilmore placed ahead of me.  I donít mind Wilmore placing ahead of me because the guy is such a gentleman. I canít help it but love the guy and be happy for him. 

But somebody like King Kamali to place ahead of me, and on top of it, claiming that I said some disrespectful things. And that I shoved him first.  What, is he fricken crazy, this guy. I mean, I donít know what happened between me and King,  until today, I have no idea why the guy doesnít like me. I hear nothing except negative stuff from him.  Every time somebody comes and tells me, and I am talking for the past 4 or 5 years, ever since I turned pro.  In the beginning, I was like that I am the tough guy, and he was always talking nice about me.  All of a sudden I am no good, and he is making fun of me all of the time.



But King Kamali beat you at the New York Pro! Shouldnít he have?


What do you think? This is what hurt me. King should have not have beaten me at the NY Show. I am sorry. King should have been 9th at the best, and he is talking about that he was shredded. Shredded where? Pictures do not lie? Look at some of the pictures that were taken. I was beating him in every pose. Just like he was saying he beat Horvath in every pose?  He was fighting for a top ten, and I was fighting for a top five, and somehow, miraculously, he ended up ahead of me at the night show. I donít get it. Like I said, I have been nothing but a great ambassador to the sport, and nobody has heard me say anything bad to anyone. I love my fans. I am an educated man.
I am a nutritional consultant.  I work 24 hours, bettering myself, and I want people to know that every seminar I do, every guest posing I do, I always bring bodybuilding and the IFBB and put them in the highest regard possible. I want people to know that we are good people, that we are not ignorant like the stereotypes say. Some of us do have families, and we work like everyone else.




So is King Kamali uneducated?

I donít know what King is. I just think that King has a problem. And I donít have a problem with the guy.  Like I said, I never wanted to go down to anyoneís level.  I donít think I am an average bodybuilider. I didnít study all of my life so I can around and act like ďIím the shitĒ when I am not. I never in my life said that I am going into the show, and show you this and that. I am not like this. I respect everybody, and I would do anything to better our sport.  And then you got King pushing and showing and doing stuff. As a matter of fact, I asked him ďDude, you hurt me out thereĒ. That is the only time I really talked to him backstage, and there were numerous bodybuilders back there that will tell you.  ďWhat was that all about?Ē  Oh, you know, itís no big deal. Itís just when I am pumped and stuff.  And I said ďPumped what?Ē  And then I walked away. I donít even know why I bothered with that?


Where you surprised when King did that?

Yes, I was very surprised. I am like ďWhat the f**k is wrong with this guy. Why is he acting like this?Ē  Because he is basically losing, and didnít live up to his expectations and promising people that he is coming back with a vengeance. Well guess what. Coming back with a vengeance and discovering reality Ė he got beat.


Are you competing in the Europa Super Show? Are you going to beat Kamali?

Yes, I am competing there to show people that I do belong on the Olympia stage.  As for beating Kamali, I am not the one who talks. I just walk the walk. When that day comes, I donít think Kamali is going to be called up next to me because I am going to be way ahead of him. If he thinks that he is going to come conditioned, wait until he sees me, because I am going bring new meaning to the word conditioned when the show comes. Now I have the time, I am not going to get injured, and I am going to train smarter. I have plenty of time. I am in shape, and I am planning on coming around the 210 mark, a few pounds heavier than in New York, and 20% sharper than at the New York Pro?


I hear Dorian Yates said some interesting remarks about King to you?


How did you hear about that? Dorian Yates was really mad, and he complimented me for being a gentleman on stage, and everybody saw what happened, so I donít want to repeat myself. King actually took an extra effort and step to push me. I wasnít near him. I donít know what was the deal on that.

Stan will be competing at the 2006 NPC Nationals with a goal to take first and win his pro card. I beleive he got second in his weight class on the last try, so this time, he is gunning for it all.  Here he is pictured with his girl Amanda, a Maxim model, at the 2006 NPC USAs.

6285  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Why is DARREM CHARLES competing this fall? on: August 15, 2006, 12:11:20 AM

Darrem Charles is going to compete in the Mr. Olympia.  It will be a nice paycheck for him wherever he places.

Darrem has a contract with Muscletech, and when you get a Muscletech contract, if you place first at any pro show, Muscletech gives you a nice earned bonus, which could be $10K or more (not sure exactly).

For Darrem to compete in the Europa Show and Montreal Show, both which he is favorites in, the payday can be quite nice, considering everything! And why not! Darrem is in shape, looked great at the Colorado and New York Pro, and if he wants to continue it, by all means go for it.

Sorry boys...we only have PRO bodybuilders and people that are experts in the bodybuilding industry as guests.

Whew - am I lucky I passed this one...


Seriously though, when will you understand that Chick is for the IFBB, and is an IFBB Athletes rep. Is it so hard to understand this simple fact? He is not a bodybuilders rep, he is not a help PDI rep, he is not a Nabba rep - he is the IFBB athletes rep.

And admit he was wrong? Come on guys - he has his opinions, as does everyone else. He is an excellent debater.  Jeez - once again, equate the IFBB to a fraternity. You cannt go into another one, and if you are SAM's athletes rep, you certainly are not going to help one of your members go to PZA's athletic events and have him comepte there.  Simple common sense.

Choose one or the either -

Without Joe and Ben Weider, bodybuilding wouldn't even be in the mix. 


Now this statement is true - without these two, and the IFBB, we wouldnt have professional bodybuilding, for what it is, the way it is now. No matter what, these guys built it up, and the people below them helped grow the sport. And many of us make our money, from contract, from supplements, from the supplement industry, because of them. For good and bad.  But that is a debate for another thread.

6294  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Kelly Ryan - Exclusive Interview From Jail! on: August 08, 2006, 09:02:09 PM

There is a huge amount of interest in the Craig Titus and Kelly Ryan case and everything related to it. As Bob and Dan did mention, this was one of the top bodybuilding stories, if not the biggest, in 2005. There are 2 or 3 sites just devoted to it. And people still come up to me, and email daily, asking questions on what is going on, what have you heard, when is the trial coming, when are you going to put up more relavant news, etc - so the story is relevant. I am not so sure about how it was done - but hey - how can I complain when as resarchers - we strive to learn whatever we can about the facts of the case - without saying he or she is guilty.

6295  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Kelly Ryan - Exclusive Interview From Jail! on: August 08, 2006, 07:12:10 PM

Both Kelly and Craig cannot talk about the case - it is that simple. I went to visit Craig last weekend, we talked about a number of various subjects and issues. He was in good spirits, and looking forward to having things come out, but under lawyer's rules, must wait until the trial.  He is very aware of this board, and what people say (he does get mail, and so does Kelly), but the whole story could of been said in a few sentences.

Still - it is the facts of the case, the places that were mentioned in the transcripts, and what really happened is what is interesting. We have only heard one side of the story, the prosecutors and some of the witnesses. In January, we will hear the defense side, and perhaps then, perception of the case may change greatly.

I won't discuss what Craig & I talked about - as it is between Craig & I. But he does wish everybody well, even King Kamali...
6296  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Move to get the IFBB rules followed! on: August 08, 2006, 12:13:40 AM

First of all - some issues here...

Nudes of figure and fitness competitors - don't even bring that here. These are awesome, but they are certainly not breaking the rules. I don't want to hear that. In this day and age, where actresses, and many other people are less conservative about their bodys and proud of them, posing for pics, aka topless, completely nude, or provactive is cool. Jeez - have you never been in Europe before guys?

As for all of the rules or none of the rules - get real. We have gone through this before.

There is a simple rule - you cant be with two federations at the same time. When you agree to get your IFBB Pro card, that is the rules. It is the biggest rule.

Everyone breaks or violates rules whereever they are. Take driving - you generally do a rollover stop on a Stop Sign, or break the speed limit. Cops don't generally rush and give you a ticket. But we all know what will generate a ticket. Running a red light in cross traffic. Hell - we all know what it will take to get that ticket.

Lee - you are entertaining, trying to change things, but you can't be in two federations at the same time. Just like in college, we couldnt be in the fraternities.  You and others wish you can compete in many places, but it isnt happening. Not this year, not this time.

In the future - perhaps. But not know. Enjoy the PDI - Wayne is a good guy, and his show should be interesting. But you will be suspended.

As for Chick- get off his back guys. Debate him, or myself - but when you can't handle it anymore, you resort to malicious stuff.

At least Lee debates and stands up.  Respect for all guys.

6297  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: ANY ONE GOING TO THE EUROPA SHOW ? on: August 07, 2006, 11:50:17 PM


This show will be an interesting show - King Kamali, Quincy Taylor, Darrem Charles, Idrise Ward-El, Art Atwood, George Farah, Johnnie Jackson should all be competed, excuse me if I cant name others at the moment.

Now, if Lee Priest wants to enter, why not? Should be interesting? Even if he comes to the expo should make it interesting.  In fact, after Lee's comments out here,  should be interesting to see who will call out Lee at the expo.

You can bet I will - and Lee knows it. Ask him lots of questions, etc.

Dan Solomon and Bob Cicherillo will be at the show, so will Lift Studios (Isaac), and of course, Lonnie Teper, who will be emceeing the show. In fact, you guys should all come and say hello and visit.

Lets get ready to have some fun and rumble...  will be staying at the host hotel.
6298  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Jay Cutler - Unreal and bald! on: August 07, 2006, 11:43:08 PM
Now those are interesting pictures - although I don't think that is how Jay is looking at the moment, but perhaps Jay might shave his head after the 2006 Mr. Olympia. Will let Jay and Flex Magazine comment on WHY and who may shave Jay's head very soon, or perhaps it won't happen...

6299  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: King Kamali - lawsuits and public humilation? on: August 07, 2006, 11:40:25 PM

No - Kamali has been quiet, training for the Europa Super show, where he will place in the top three, and 240 has been smarter, concentrating of maintaining and building web sites for various competitors, and learning some respect while continuing a good sense of debate.

And if you were at the NPC USA's, the you should of come up and said hello.

I think they averaged about 40-42 shows in the first year, which isnt bad.

I am told that next Monday there will be another show, so hold on to your hats, check out the archives and have some fun listening to some past shows...

Or go for Muscleradio's past shows...
