Win or lose – Brandon Curry is growing to be the most powerful fan favorite in bodybuilding.
There are a lot of odds in Brandon Curry’s favor this year at the Mr. Olympia due to many circumstances that have unfolded between Big Ramy’s injury, Phil Heath possibly taking a year off, and the Shawn Rhoden allegations. But honestly that doesn’t matter too much – because even if every single top bodybuilder was planned to show up at the Mr. Olympia 2019, fans would still be clamoring over Brandon Curry. It appears that he has become the new People’s Champ.
It’s at this point that we’d like to note that the video in this article was recorded just before the allegations against Shawn Rhoden. But the main point of the video remains the same. Brandon Curry has captured some sort of energy in the bodybuilding world and become one of the most exciting competitors in the sport. His fandom is passionate and very vocal on how he should be a long reigning Olympia champion. That may perhaps come to pass – but much like Kai Greene, it doesn’t matter ultimately if he does or not because he’s already become such a fan favorite.
