    Default Cedric's Antics: Did it cross the line?

    I've seen discussion elsewhere, wanted to bring it here. Cedric did several things that could be taken different ways: rubbing Arnold's hair, humping Arnold, taking the Mic away. Was it entertainment or was a line crossed?

    That's just Cedric. If you know him it's fine, but it will rub a lot of people the wrong way. Which other BB would interrupt their routine to be funny?
    My only concern is if he pissed off the oak.

    No. He may well have done enough to cross into something special after BB by virtue of showing charisma

    No.

    I thought it was entertaining and certainly not the norm. Hope to see more candidness like Cedric brings.

    It was tense and exciting. I loved it.

    Bodybuilding is an art. Art, by definition, comes in various forms. As a artist, the person who uses the greatest extent of the senses, the greater the potential impact and the greater the potential to "cross the line".

    It was absolutely fantastic, Evan. The only line he crossed was into AWESOMENESS.

    I couldn't believe when he ruffled Arnold's hair!



    But, beyond the antics and fun, Cedric had a strong message for the fans, the judges, the organization and industry as a whole... focus on the positive.

    Or that's part of what I took from it.

    The discussion on YouTube was quite divided so I figured I would give it a shot on here and was hoping for a 10 pager, but the consensus seems to be positive. I think Cedric brought something back to the arena that hasn't been seen in years: charisma. It will be exciting to follow his prep for the olympia!

    Cedric is almost 40 years old. He took a while to get to the top. I don't know how many more years left he has to compete for the O and Arnold.

    He is also a little too loose with foul language I noticed. Some guys rarely curse and only do so at certain times.

    He also talked about the bikini girls negatively several times including the Seminar on Sunday. If girls feel bad because a hot bikini girl is working her glutes to get that curve lol! Workout harder so you too can get that bikini body.

    I couldn't believe it when he started humping Arnold. I broke my ass laughing........nobody does that to Arnold not even Trump.

    Arnold is notorious for controlling what questions interviewers can ask and has a tight grip on his media machine. Cedric just blew up the computer!


    Don't forget Arnold had no problem being cheeky with Joe Weider......either did Franco.....have a look from 8.35 on this video:

    I noticed his language, too, but it was refreshing and true.

    Cedric may never win another show, but he'll be the one who brought star power back to the stage. No one has a bigger personality. And if that's not true then certainly no one has a greater ability to display their personality.

    Fwiw, The Oak continued taking selfies with Cedric even after the speech. A good sign, imo, that though he ruffled Arnold's hair and, apparently, a few feathers, Cedric McMillan did the right thing last night.

    Awesome!

    I saw nothing wrong with his behaviour, in fact I never thought about it being wrong or pissing off Arnold. I thought his speech was great and his antics with Arnold were refreshing and fun to watch.
