      I have Justin in third here.. They are compareable uptop but his quads are being dwarfed by Akim's. Justin's shoulder also look SUS, pointy from site enhancement. Akim has better quads but Max has a slightly thicker back and lower insertions. I have Akim, Max, Justin.

    Nick gain so much water during off-season that when getting ready for the show, he has to come soft; otherwise, he will be average. As you see on this show, he has no definition especially upper body.

    Who thinks it's smart to make a background brighter than the foreground? There's a time and a place for everything; they were supposed to dim those screens in the back, stop the moving graphics, and illuminate the competitors from above so they'd pop out while doing the routines. Irrationally, they prioritized the screen as subjects, instead of the competitors. What illogical person was in charge of that? They could've learned those lighting basics from a NLcameras tutorial. Instead, that horrible lighting was probably an "artistic choice". As proven in that show, when art defeats aesthetics, it's called UGLY!

    "Again, Akim's condition just doesn't look great to me, but he is kinda that established guy, I can see why" - this is what is difficult (wrong, even??) with bodybuilding, it's so subjective that rank and "establishment" factor plays out in the politics of it. That should not be the case. It also happens in other sports, but in BBuilding it's just too much. These are the things that make it an incredibly difficult path to recognition as a "proper sport" by the majority of people, it's not a great look. Along with the ridiculous background, which makes it difficult to analyse the physiques, along with the less than fantastic lighting... One can see why it'll be an uphill battle.

    I hate how akim is a top pro but has no abs. Even average gym bros have shredded defined abs. Do bodybuilders not care about abs anymore? It really throws off the physique having shredded glutes quads and arms and then this watery abless even flabby lookin midsection.

    I don't understand why you think Akim's conditioning is not that good, it's insane! look a the details in his legs from the side, it's literally carved in. I really believe Akim's skin tone hurts him, he's really dark and I think that hides some of his crazy condition. I had Akim winning all along but I didn't' watch it live, I was busy, I saw pictures and the finals comparisons. the judges seemed to have had Justin 1st in the morning.

    After Europe I have an incredible result. One wonders how the judges are selected. If an asymmetrical athlete arrives first (no calves, poor lats, high and tarnished) and others are left out complete and in better condition, there is more than a few suspicions about their impartiality ...

    Nothing against Nick or big Ramy for that matter, but like I always said about big Ramy and now big Nick, size isn't everything. Conditioning, Symmetry, Shape, and flowing lines are more important to me which is why I preferred physiques like Flex Wheelers and now Rafael Brandao, Keonne, Regan Grimes, Chris Bumstead,and current Mr. Olympia Brandon Currey. Even Phil Heath and Ronnie Coleman when they won their early Olympia titles, as big as they are, had good lines and flow to their physiques.

They knew that nick would beat them pose by pose. Akim is always having thickker skin so not like him he works hard it never seen on stage. Nicks condition was crazy as was So great going nick u are my champ u clearly beat everyone out there bro.

    Every guy on the right where Nick Walker was standing on the callout looked like they had a spotlight shining down on them. The other guys looked shadowed. I don't know, for the life of me why that would place him lower. Besides maybe because the other guys either had a matte finish or they weren't all crazy lit up like he was.

    Great job Nick on your latest videos. In regards to this show, the lighting wasn't bad, but the huge screen behind the competitors, doesn't help. Nick was the most mascular man on the stage and his legs were incredible! He was holding a little water on the midsection but from what i see on this video, top spot should be justified. I think you are right though, they are probably judging him for his structure. If he has passion and doesn't kick the bucket early... he has a bright future!

    The RDB and RLS used to win shows, but when the competitors started overdoing the gear protocols and ruining their midsection too early without the years that it takes to put on mass properly...the culture of bodybuilding in the younger crowd seems to neglect patience of which dexter Jackson is the perfect example has switched to shows being won from the front now, Akim looked fantastic, Brandon will win the Olympia if Phil doesn’t fix his gut issue, bodybuilding is about mass and freak-factor but it must also be pleasing to the eye
