For the second round, everyone returned to the risers.  Now the work of fine-tuning the rankings began.  After individuals were called out, the head judge asked for specific mandatory poses (from the same set used in round one).  Again there were far fewer callouts than last year, when 18 were used:

1) Groulx, Stafford, Stewart, Hawk, Turmon
2) Marquez, Bistocchi, Menig, Audi, Palumbo
3) Dwyer, Marshall, Giurgi, Baccianini, Apperson
4) Grosso, Samimy, Mihailescu, Rac, Leonard
5) Pedone, Cironte, Delczeg, Frydrych, Jones, Diaz
6) Delczeg, Frydrych, Brown

Stewart gets in a last wave at end of prejudging 



As the prejudging ended, it was clear this would be a Groulx-ing show for most of the men onstage.
