Arnold Classic Europe: Bodybuilders Strut Their Fake-Tanned Stuff (PHOTOS)

This bodybuilder's fake-tanning job blew up in his face.

The Associated Press snapped the above half-baked photo of an unidentified competitor in the Arnold Classic Europe competition over the weekend.

While fake-tans are ubiquitous in bodybuilding competitions because of their tone-enhancing qualities, it's still important to follow through, according to Twirlit.

"If you’re going to apply what appears to be Varathane to your body, at least take the time to slather it on your whole body, you know?" Twirlit's Charlotte Hannah writes.

The Arnold Classic Europe is a spinoff of the US-based Arnold Classic, which was birthed by Arnold Schwarzenegger and co-promoter Jim Lorimer in 1988, according to The Daily Mail.

Shawn Rhoden took home first place in the bodybuilding competition "solidifying his place in the top tier of professional bodybuilding," Flex Online reports.
