(Scroll down for video) Many white people tan themselves to look black. This has been a trend for a long time. Some men and women choose to go to the tanning booth on a regular basis, while others just do it as needed by spraying tan color onto their body.
Over the weekend, male and female contestants competed at the European Bodybuilding event in Madrid, Spain, hosted by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
One bodybuilder known as 49, tanned his body but forgot to do his face, making his impressive physique looks like it belonged to someone else. This fair skinned bodybuilder clearly needed to apply some more fake tan on his face.
The muscleman tanned his body for the Arnold Classic Europe Bodybuilding, a three-day European fitness competition, where 49 stood with his hands proudly on his waist as he flexed his muscles, showing off his body and fake tan, which was applied unevenly. He had a much darker tan from the neck down than on his face.
This competition is the second annual Arnold Classic Europe competition. It is the result of a partnership with Actor, ex-governor and former bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger, co-promoter Jim Lorimer, and Dr. Rafael Santonja of the International Federation of Bodybuilding.
Schwarzenegger met with participants at the Arnold Classic Europe bodybuilding competition in Madrid on Saturday. Shawn Rhoden, of Jamaica, won the professional bodybuilding competition.
The Arnold Sports Festival, which began in 1989, has grown to more than 18,000 athletes competing in over 45 sports events each year. In addition to bodybuilding, there were body fitness, gymnastics and Paralympics among the competitions held at this weekend's event.
