If someone gets an opportunity to ask a question to the five-time Mr. Olympia Chris Bumstead, what would they ask? Probably about his workout regime and dietary routines. One fan, however, asked him a question that no one would have expected. In a video uploaded on Instagram, one could see how the fan asked Bumstead, “How do I get a girlfriend?” Bumstead, as always had an answer.

That being said, one might think, Why ask Bumstead? The fact of the matter is, CBum has had a long-lasting relationship with his fiancée, Courtney King, and maybe, that makes him the right person to answer the fan’s question. In response, the five-time Mr. Olympia corrected his fan and said, “That’s a great question. It’s not how do you get a girlfriend; how do you get the girlfriend?”
