Man, Victor Chong is in the competition; that guy is crazy. I saw him flip out once in the middle of a figure drawing competition because someone walked in front of him while he was working. He took the guy by the lower jaw and slammed him to ground and kneed him in the face and until the guy cried Uncle. Rumor has it he even bit off part of the guys ear.

I love that Darren Kingsley is in the competition to defend his title. That sort of pressure is beneficial to everyone in the competition!
