Congratulations to Tony Doherty for putting on another tremendous expo in Australia.  Quite a few supplement companies made their way down there to put up booths, plus a few other big athletes.  It is tough to get athletes to take the 14 hour flight plus to Australia, but Tony has managed to make the event one of the biggest in Melbourne now.

I am always amazed that people keep comparing the prize money to other sports.  Jeez.   Branch has probably earned more than $250,000 so far in the first three months of the year, just had a newborn with his wife in February, and is riding high in life.   

Lets keep it real. Most people in the USA are lucky enough to break $100,000 in a year.  Simple as that.  If you reach that, you are in the 1-2% of the population.  And everyone has expenses in life.

Branch looked great - he is the freaky ass mass monster bodybuilder that a lot of people stare at and wonder wtf.  But no question about it, Branch is a most muscular competitor right now, and a lot of the times, the judges say that muscularity beats symmetry.  Not all agree, but that is the opinions.

Congratulation also to Erin Stern, who was second at the Arnold Classic, and now beat her rival here in Australia, setting up a showdown for the Olympia.  Erin vs. Nicole.  The battle keeps going...

ron, i agree with almost everything you say...
BUT!
branch is everything that is wrong with bodybuilding today.....
people stare at him, because he is a midget and looks ridiculous, people stare at a guy like Dennis Wolf.... toney Freeman... tall huge symmetrical bodybuilders...and think wow.... when they stare at Branch they think wtf???? and not in a good way lol!
he has torn muscles... no symmetry, no lines, wide waist, no back...some bodyparts very obviously oiled up......great legs though....
sure he may be a nice guy... i do not know him... but it's physiques like this that are killing bodybuilding....
no male wants to look like him... and no female wants to fuck him ... lol!!
so what are we left with???? yes the muscle worshipping gay population....
in the late 80's you had dudes like de Mey.... Paris (yeah i know he is gay, but he was a normal healthy gay individual, lol!) men wanted to look like these guys... and woman wanted them...
bodybuilding = dead.....

Be Happy,
Optimus

Branch is basically winning all these shows lately because he has outlasted many of the guys from the early 2000's......

The ladies looked very impressive. Finally Kefalianos getting a placing he deserves (of course nowadays Branch "wins" almost every contest).

St. Louis and Australian "Pro" Shows

Seriously? Is this what bodybuilding is about these days?

One contest with no men's division at all and the other where the top 2 battling it out should have been auditioning for roles in the hobbit.

How the heck are the promoter's making any money at all at these "contests"?

His muscle density is greater than the other guys. You can tell a good portion of his musculature is due to heavy lifting.
He looks good except for arms. Overall, better than the other guys.

Don't you play the bass? Isn't that for guys who can't handle all six strings?

I can play like 30 songs really well on lead guitar, but my 'winging it' on other songs is just the same 4-5 lead runs over and over. 

bass players suck :(

You guys can hate on Branch the bodybuilder all you want but as a promoter I can tell you he is a man of his word and as straight up as you get. No tantrums, no unreasonable demands and no headaches. A few up and comers could learn a lot about business from Branch.

We had a great show, fans come from every state and all left happy. We had Phil Heath, Kevin English, Rich Gaspari and Shawn Ray at the show and I had a blast interviewing them on stage.

I just think Branch is a throwback to the bodybuilders of the early 2000's who actually worked out....the guys today look really soft and have no muscle density...very few guys today have muscle maturity like Dexter, Branch, and Jay,,Branch still keeps going and thus is able to beat many of today's bodybuilders who are really soft and would not even be in a show if this were 2002 or so

Concur.

The only thing he's missing is arms. Most of the physiques today are 'all drugs'.
