OUR TAKE ON IT
MuscleMania has had a spotty reputation as far as drug-free bodybuilding is concerned. Their emphasis as an organization is about image, not substance. They want to put put on a exciting show, not necessarily a meaningful one. As such, there are often those of questionable drug-use status among the winners.
The MuscleMania has also placed a far greater emphasis on the modeling and glam aspects, thus favoring the women's figure and men's physique classes over bodybuilding. It can cause a discouraging effect of prolonged delays and low-quality presentation timeframes. The overall effect is impersonal and often feels less about the competitors and more about the show's reputation.
