  •  Depending on the number of competitors in the class, each competitor may be directed to:
  •  exit the stage until the entire class has performed the front and back turns at which time the entire class is called back onstage; or
  • line up along diagonal lines on the sides of the stage.
Comparisons
  • The Head Judge will call the competitors, in small groups and in numerical order, to center stage to perform the front and back turns.
  •  In the call-outs, the Head Judge will direct specific competitors to perform the front and back turns. Judges will have the opportunity to compare competitors against each other in the front and back turns.

5. SCORING

The Presentation and Comparisons are scored 100%.
Muscularity and Body Condition
Judges will be looking for fit competitors who display proper shape and symmetry combined with muscularity and overall condition. This is not a bodybuilding contest so extreme muscularity should be marked down.
Stage Presence and Personality
Judges are looking for the competitor with the best stage presence and poise who can successfully convey his personality to the audience.
*If necessary, the judging panel, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to re-judge at the Finals using a Confirmation round.
