The 2012 IFBB Bikini Pro show will take place this weekend in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The show is the second-to-last on the 2012 IFBB Pro League schedule. The number of pros competing may not be large in numbers however it will be competitive with no clear cut favorite.
If you can correctly pick the top five in this line-up then you should go purchase lottery tickets immediately.
1. Gigi Amurao - Gigi was third in her pro debut at the Ft. Lauderdale Cup. She’ll look to be in the top five again to add to her Olympia point series total.
2. Jennifer Chapman - Jennifer will look to get back on track after two lackluster finishes. She has two second place pro finishes but coming off a 15th place finish at Houston. Look for her to be back in the hunt here.
3. Lacey DeLuca - Lacey is looking for her first pro win after two second place finishes as a pro. She’s always polished with her posing and presentation. She has to bring a tighter backside to lock in the top spot. If she does that here she could be your winner.
4. Sandi Forsythe - Sandi will be making her pro debut after graduating to the big leagues at the 2012 NPC USA. She’s one of the few blondes in the division and it will help her stand out in this line-up as silly as it sounds. If she brings a similar look and presentation to this show as she did at USAs, she’ll be in the mix.
5. Crystal Green - Crystal Green is wasting no time jumping into the mix. Crystal won her class last week at the NPC Nationals and will test the waters in the pro league. Props to her for going right into this show, she’s in shape so why not. She has killer eyes (a good thing) and if she can captivate the judges with her physique she’ll be the dark horse to shake things up.
6. Michon Leddy - Michon is coming off an 8th place finish at the Ft. Lauderdale Pro and if she can crack the top five in this show it would be a successful outing.
7. Ashley LeBlanc - The crawdaddy hip-poppah is finding her grove on the pro stage. She’s ditched the painful looking twist in her posing and has fun on stage. Look for her to be in the mix for a top spot here.
8. Cristina Liberatore - Cristina will be competing for the first time as Mrs. Liberatore. Congrats on the marriage. We never really know which Cristina will show up. She’s always in shape it more an issue of being too conditioned and ditching the goofy poses, especially the duck lips. She has the potential if she presents herself well.
9. Nicole Moneer - Nicole is riding the wave of being at the Sheru Classic. She was third there and was third at last year’s Iowa Pro. She continues to improve her physique for the Bikini division and if her booty it tight she could be a contender.
10. Brittney Young - Brittney is one of the taller competitors and if she can pose without being over the top she’ll catch the judges’ attention.
