Who would you pick to be the "face" of female bodybuilding?

Jul 07, 2021 - permalink

Talking about being an icon like Arnold, Ronnie Coleman, someone who represents the sport.

Right now no doubt Andrea Shaw.

I'm reading into your question that you mean who do I think would be the most acceptable to the general public and help make FBBing more mainstream. If that is the case I would definitely disagree with Iris Kyle and even Natalya Kovalyova and Aleesha Young although I am a huge fan of all of them.

The first 4 are a little bigger than what I think would fly with a lot of people but I think all these women have great physiques and feminine voices and to me they just look good on camera.

Andrea Shaw

Margie Martin

Katie Lee

Brooke Walker

Dana Linn Bailey

Brooke Ence (not a bodybuilder but a ton of muscle.)

Right now? Andrea Shaw for the big gurls. Brooke Walker for the physique girls. But if it had to be one or the other it'd be Andrea.

Whether or not this is what the OP is looking for, I think it simply won't happen. Female bodybuilding gives us the most extreme examples of muscular women, and the general public has no interest in it.

Now if the OP is looking for the face of female bodybuilding for the muscle/bodybuilding community, that's a different story, and I would agree with Andrea Shaw or even Kristina Mendoza (who surprisingly hasn't been mentioned yet).

Agree cgsweat. All rolled into one it is Hard to find a more beautiful, muscular and exotic-looking woman than Kristina.

The most extreme examples probably not but I have more hope that things are changing. Being as old as I am I can remember the days when you hardly saw muscle on a woman anywhere. Look back at those early FBBing shows. Its not unheard of to know a regular girl with that kind of muscle now. Now it's not that weird. Almost everyone has abs now. And I think Crossfit (love it or hate it as a lifestyle) as far as putting muscles on women is a Godsend. The number of just regular women that go to the gym and lift heavy weights is exponentially higher than it was years ago. I don't think Iris Kyle will every be the regular standard of beauty for women but I do think the needle has been and will continue to be moved significantly.

Ok sorry to highjack the thread. More hot women with muscle pics please.

Would have been Dani Reardon in her prime had she stuck around longer. Apparently she's also a lovable geek being into comic books and video games. Plus with those girl next door looks and charm, she would have been super marketable.

The face of bodybuilding back in the day was definitely Arnold Schwarzenegger and his popular grew because of his bodybuilding career, and to me the female equivalent to him was Cory Everson. Cory had the body, looks, personality because she could definitely turn heads, and her popularity also grew because of her career in bodybuilding.

Ronnie Coleman himself is the most modern day popular bodybuilder in the male category of course but didn't get the success of what Arnold Schwarzenegger did after bodybuilding. To me the one female bodybuilder who represents bodybuilding if she went down the hardcore bodybuilding route is Kristifigure. No joke Kristi is extremely popular on this website compared to any other bodybuilder here. She has the most views, and comments. Her pics are way better than the vast female bodybuilders who do their own selfies, and have family, friends, and photographers take their picture as well. Kristi has a ton of personality, she's fun, extremely sexy, has a great body, friendly, and more in one package. If she went down the hardcore bodybuilding route she would be noticed way more than what she is now. ://://://

At the moment I think it's Andrea Shaw but let's face it, it's going to be her:

I'm more interested in seeing who will knock Brooke Walker off the physique throne. To me, she and Katie Lee were the faces of that division.

Yeah, thats the case

If we take a combination of facial beauty and body, I'd say Anastasia Leonova, she has a beautiful feminine face while having an extremely shredded, veiny and striated body.

She's literally the embodiment of what female muscle drawings / fantaisies are about

Margie V Martin would be a good ambassador too, she's gorgeous, has an elite level heavyweight pro bodybuilder body, and she's also very charismatic

If we're talking pure mass and the "freak factor", then Natalya Trukhina by far, she's the biggest female bodybuilder ever, she even dwarfs most male pro bodybuilders (there's a picture of her literally drawing freaking JAY CUTLER, that's right she dwarfs a former mister Olympia)

Lauren Martin Stow, Rachel Anastasia Cucchia, Jozeffa Alajahji would be good too.

It looks like from her Insta posts that she might be coming back to a more public presence soon. Not sure if she's coming back to the sport though
