I don't think I've ever seen Lee Priest this shredded before. I don't know what he changed in his program to get in this condition but congrats to you Lee!
This is one of Lee's best poses, due in large part to his huge and balanced arms.
Compare that photo with the one below, taken years ago.

Unfortunately for Gustavo Badell, this picture speaks volumes of the importance of stomach control for him. Now that his stomach has become problematic, it will be all the more important that he tries to control his midsection on stage. Luckily for Gustavo, bodybuilding contests are not judged backstage.
On the other hand - this photo below may explain why Gustavo has been doing so well as of late...
I think Dexter looks great in this pose, and aside from just being in condition, he is also looking full. Compare the photo above to THIS PICTURE of Dexter at the 2002 Mr. Olympia. Granted, he is not flexing in the second picture, but even if he had been, I doubt he would have looked anything near as impressive as he did in 2005, which speaks for the improvements he has been making.
Here is another good picture of Dexter, hitting a front double biceps:

Although Chris Cormier looks very imposing in this pose, his size was not able to give him the win.

Victor Martinez looks incredible in this picture. Sometimes, the best shots are taken backstage. :P

Troy Alves looking good. He is one bodybuilder whose face gets very thin when he diets - his face is as shredded and dry as the rest of him.
And here he is after applying some tan:

Although Mark Dugdale is an excellent short bodybuilder, we will have to wait and see how he fares in the pro ranks. Lee Priest and Shawn Ray are two of the best short bodybuilders in the history of bodybuilding and neither of them won a Mr. Olympia Contest - unfortunately, height is judged like anything else. In any case, I think Mark has a bright future. Aside from being a competitive bodybuilder, Mark is also a successful business and family man.
Although Mark has been said to have weak arms, they look surprisingly big in this photo:

Art Atwood has the size but not the aesthetics. In any case, I think he should get an award just for being so damn big and ripped.
