    Default Will the Fans Really Decide the Next Mr Olympia?

    Dave Palumbo interprets the latest announcement by American Media the fans will have input into the judging of this year's 2018 Mr Olympia Contest. But will the fans truly be able to influence the final outcome?

    When in doubt, get bigger.

    Absolutely not.

    But Dave’s right. That ‘People’s Choice’ award may get some social media participation.

    Is there any audience participation in the judging?

    Looking at last years attendance ticket sales could do with a shot in the arm.

    If you have a social media account, you can send in your vote, evidently. It has stirred up some excitement. We'll see how it pans out.

    The fans don't decide.......NOT YET, at any rate, but I'm willing to bet that's in the works. Sad day when the Mr. Olympia is essentially being turned into "America's Got Talent" and the "X Factor." It's the most prestigious bodybuilding show in the world, not a reality-tv show. Leave it alone!!

    I don't see how attending fans judging would be any less arbitrary than what we have with the current schmoes judges. At least judges on America's Got Talent have genuine expertise, a lot of bodybuilding judges have never been bodybuilders and their expertise is formed in seedy hotel posing sessions.

    At face value, both the print column & website post on FLEX state that only folks at The Orleans Arena will cast a vote. And this is akin to the Most Muscular at the Arnold; merely a consolation prize of sorts.
