One of my favorite memories is of being at the Arnold Classic and watching the winner Yaxeni Oriquen cause Arnold Schwarzenegger to end up onstage stuttering and obviously uncomfortable.
The Arnold Classic has a huge prize disparity between male and female bodybuilders, with the males also receiving a brand new Hummer vehicle. After winning, Arnold went to ask her all the normal questions and Yaxeni quickly gripped the microphone from him and promptly said “Now I want to know where my hummer is?”
Arnold really had no good reply to the question and was left just fuddling through, to much of the crowd’s bemusement.
