We started off the night with the women's bodybuilding posing routines. Here are some thoughts on the top six women: Dayana Cadeau she looked a tad bit tighter tonight. She has great symmetry and overall muscularity but could have been leaner in my opinion. Her physique got her a sixth place win tonight.

Lisa Aukland she was on She is lean and very muscular. She has brought up her back but still needs to bring her lats up a tad bit more and she earned a 4th place tonight.

The figure awards were given tonight to some very deserving and hard working women. They are all beautiful and graceful and I have to say I sometimes wonder how do they choose who wins? They all look incredible! The top ladies tonight were Larissa Reis who was poised, elegant and with a great V taper and earned a 6th place tonight.

Felicia Romero had great presentation and great lines, I have to say that her suit was very distracting, in my opinion. I love Felicia but I was not a fan of her suit. She earned 5th place tonight. Mindi Smith had great stage presence; she is on the rise in this sport. She won her pro card at the NPC Nationals and she won the first pro show of this year. She has a bright future in this sport. Tonight she earned a 4th place win.

That left the fitness gals for the end. The fitness routines tonight were very entertaining and we learned a little bit about the competitor's personalities as well. As each and every single one reflected a little bit of their persona. There were some incredible routines and the top six ladies all were amazing.

Camala Rodriguez who started out with a Michael Jackson tribute silver glove and everything! She had a good routine and earned a 6th place win. Oksana Grishina who one can tell this girl has a professional gymnastic background, she had a very powerful and explosive routine. She got a great reaction from the crowd as she delivered another great routine! She earned a 5th place tonight.
