    I'm hooked on those shows. Yes it happens every year and it's an elimination process....qualifing, semi's, final's .and so on. These guys train their whole lives for it.

    I saw one live at the Arnold Classic. I think Mark Henry is by far the worlds strongest man.

    I remember when they had one from the 70s with people from all sorts of different backgrounds, bodybuilding, powerlifting, and athletics. They had Franco Columbo on there, he did pretty poorly though. They also had this football player that did fairly well, but the WSM obviously out beat them.
