This Valentino idiot will put a serious dent in bodybuilding. That documentary of him shooting puss out of his fake arm is utterly ridiculous. I don't even classify him as a bodybuilder. The goof even had the nerve throw shots at some of the best bodybuilders out there such as Lee Priest. Priest would laugh him off the stage!
Here is my take on the show and GV. I agree , he is not much of a bodybuilder but rather a body-distorter.
I think that he definitly has some sort of body dysmorphic disorder after seeing him in the video.
The obvious reason I believe this ,is the crazy, distorted arms that don't match his physique.
Plus, when "posing" he kept covered his legs and chest, torso and took great care NOT to show anything but his amrs and delts, etc. Since he was posing and would NOT take off his short, ya gotta figure he is pretty insecure about his body overall. He is self absorbed cult figure with a small but dedicated following that admires this kind of oddball, get swoled kind of thing.The sad reality is that the guy had a decent , regional level physique at one time.
He would have blended in like many of us however and we would never even know who he is, had he not done such odd things.
