Joseph Lee finished as the runner-up. The judges placed Andres Ramos in third. The head judge for this show was Tamer El Guindy, and the top 10 finishers of this contest are below:

Winner — Carlos DeOliveira
The third time was the charm for DeOliveira. In his third contest of 2023, he won with a perfect score. He earned his qualification to compete in his second Men’s Physique Olympia, scheduled for Nov. 2-5 in Orlando, FL. The Brazilian bodybuilder can either wait to compete at the Olympia or continue to compete to earn more victories. If he does, each victory will block another potential opponent from stepping on stage in Orlando.
Second Place — Joseph Lee
Lee scored his second top-three finish in his comeback season after a one-year absence from the stage — he was third at the 2023 Wasatch Warrior Pro show on April 15, 2023. After placing 10th at the 2021 Men’s Physique Olympia to winner Brandon Hendrickson, Lee took the entire 2022 season off. If he is to return to the Olympia stage, he needs to compete until he steps atop the podium, as only pro show winners advance to the 2023 Olympia.
Third Place — Andres Ramos
This was Ramos’ pro debut. He turned pro at the 2021 NPC Worldwide Latin American Championships but didn’t compete in 2022. He showed potential and beat several veterans in this lineup. If he competes again, he could be a contender for his first pro win and the accompanying Olympia qualification.
This was one of two Men’s Physique competitions on this day. The other was at the 2023 Charlotte Pro. The winner of that contest was Corey Morris. The next Men’s Physique contest on the 2023 schedule will be the St. Louis MP Pro, which will take place on May 6, 2023 in St. Louis, MO.
