Chapter 1 Synopsis:
At the end of RTB3, we saw Dave Pulcinella and Haley McNeff walk away hand-in-hand, a seemingly happy couple. When the curtain rises on Raising the Bar 4 we see that their relationship has not only ended, but threatens to wreak havoc on their lives.
With female bodybuilding on the verge of dying out, she might be its last hope…but will the 20 year old Hayley be able to handle the pressures of being thrust into such a demanding role at such a tender age, while also dealing with her first real adult heartache?
We explore this and more and also reveal the shocking reason behind Dave and Haley’s demise in the debut episode of Raising The Bar 4.
• Mike Pulcinella’s journey from filmmaker hobbyist to MHP’s man-behind-the-camera
• Behind-the-scenes footage of Victor Martinez—Mike’s very first shoot of a pro bodybuilder—only a few months after Victor’s devastating career setback knee surgery.
