Ronnie Coleman Classic 2011 Recap

Things I Will Never Forget

  • Standing naked while a complete stranger spray tans you
  • Spray tan is extremely cold
  • Awkwardly waving at exiting girls as they passed by my tent where I was drying my tan
  • Getting my butt glued by a complete stranger
  • The first time I put my bikini bottoms on
  • Eating cold flank steak
  • Having my name called to walk on stage
  • The judges faces when they looked at me (I mean when they REALLY looked at me)
  • The awesome support I was flooded with on Twitter
  • Seeing my husband and my sister’s faces when I was announced as 3rd place

Funny Bikini Bite Stories from Backstage

Note: Bikini bite (the glue that keeps your suit firmly in place) comes in spray and a roller ball.

Pre-judging: Don’t let a novice spray your buns. The lady who sprayed my booty with bikini bite had just learned how and I was her very first victim. This resulted in her getting it everywhere…oh well I thought.  After it dried I put my sweat pants on and walked over to my friends, ate, chatted. Then they called my class to start getting oiled up. I tried to take off my sweat pants and they were FIRMLY cemented to my left cheek. I slowly and painfully pried it off leaving a patch of untanned skin – 20 minutes before stage time, ha!

Night Show: Do you…need to shave? I kept having to go to the restroom from all the excitement, so I kept having to go get re-bitten. I think the lady was thinking I was moving a lot and knocking my suit off so she went to town with the roller AND the spray version of Bikini Bite.  Keeping warm in my huge baggy black sweat pants turned out to be a bad idea again. 30 minutes before stage time I take off my pants to go get oiled. While standing in line, my friend turns to me and says, “um…you need to pull your suit up in the front.” I look down and black fuzz from my sweat pants was in patchy splotches just above the top of my suit! I tried to dust/rub it off, but to no avail! That actually made it worse! Now I had a sheet of black fuzz!  So I used my razor blade to try to shave off the sweater clumps – it worked! but now my tan looks like it was mowed over. I had to laugh! SOMETHING had to happen – if you don’t have a fiasco, you’re not fully enjoying the backstage life, right? ;P

A Picture From My 1st Show

A plethora of funny stories to come, but here are one of the pics from the stage. I took home a trophy that night – I was floored!  I felt so honored to walk the stage with all those incredibly fit and beautiful ladies who all worked SO hard. It was surreal being there.  I LOVED…I mean LOVED the stage. I had the time of my LIFE walking on that stage. It was SO. MUCH. FUN!!!!!!!!

I made top 5 first call out and actually thought I was being dismissed haha…thankfully my trainer, Susan Groshek, came back stage immediately. I asked her what that meant and she said “you made top 5!” – I started jumping up and down in my 5″ heals and squealing like a little girl. Of course, it’s not final till the night show.

At the night show they called my name…I wasn’t sure if I heard right. I looked around and said “did he say Faith Keith? did he say Faith Keith?” Nobody answered me so I thought well….I guess I’ll just walk up there and if its not me then they can shew me off – at least I will be remembered. So I walked on and the stage director was motioning to me to come on, so AH it WAS me.  THEN THEY PLACED US!! And I got third!!!!!!!!!!!! WOWEEEEE!!!!!!! I was ecstatic!  I wanted to drop my jaw open and say “ahh oh my gooooosh!!!!”
