Our first couple of Lea Pearl hopefuls are two of the UK's biggest girls.
Christal "The Spartan" Cornick
IBFA British Champion
A British female bodybuilder with a bona fide national Female Bodybuilding title (not too many of those going around these days!), Portsmouth's most massive has the looks and the muscle to carry off the role of "female bodybuilding star Lea Pearl" because... well, because she really IS one. Not (yet) a pro though, which may count against her.
If the P.E.A.R.L. producers really want to give the title character some shock and awe factor, then the titanic Tamazine may be in the frame (or at least most of her may be in the frame, unless they're shooting it widescreen). Unlikely to have been cast as she seems not to be a woman who seeks the limelight (ie. not too active social media wise), when Tamazine does come out of her cave, it's always a real treat (see below).
What we female muscle heads call a "proper" female bodybuilder.
The Hunt for Lea Pearl continues tomorrow.
