Will there be a new group made? As the link above takes you to the 2012 100k transformation group, and I know the 'other' group is simply the Dymatize group. ?

Is there going to be a guaranteed female winner this year like in previous years? If not, how is a girl suppose to compete against a guy in a body building competition? I told a few female friends about this competition last fall and we were all excited and now that the rules have changed, no one wants to compete against guys.
