If you’re a fan of the bodybuilding world, you’ll know who Doug Brignole is. Back in 1982, Doug was Mr. California, and in 1991, he was crowned Mr. America. Well, the acclaimed Bodybuilder and fitness author has sadly passed away. The bodybuilding icon died on October 13 at the age of 62. The official cause of his death has not been revealed yet, although some unverified sources have claimed that he died of a heart attack.
Doug was a big advocate for the vaccine. He even got a photo of himself getting the shot at one of those drive-up locations.
Here’s what he posted on Facebook:
But it’s what he said about the COVID vaccine that has so many people feeling very eerie today.
Here were his famous and haunting words regarding the COVID vaccine: “Those of you who think the vaccine kills people can use me as a test. If I die, you were right. If I don’t die, and have no ill effects, you were wrong, and should admit it. Better yet, you should admit that you were misled, and tell the world who misled you, so other people can benefit by avoiding those fear mongers.”
Wow. Well, I guess by his own standards, the people who believe the vaccine is dangerous were right, and sadly, Doug was very wrong.
The Teal Mango reported that Brignole was famous for being a part of the Amateur Athletic Union and the National Amateur Bodybuilding Association.

May he rest in peace. Doug Brignole – 62 years old.” The news comes at a time when the bodybuilder was preparing and training to appear as a guest at the AAU Mr. Universe competition, which is set to take place in Las Vegas on October 22.
Brignole’s friend and physique athlete, Benny Rollins, also shared the news on social media, tweeting, “Incredibly sad to report that my friend and mentor Doug Brignole passed away today. Doug taught me how to train PROPERLY, and I never would have developed anywhere near the physique I did if it wasn’t for him. His body was amazing, but his mind even more so. RIP buddy.”
As soon as the news came out, many of Doug’s friends and mentees started paying tribute to the bodybuilder. “Doug Brignole passed away last night. Doug was a great mentor to me, he made me a better teacher and thinker. I never imagined he’d be gone so soon. This hurts. Rest In Peace Doug. You were a great mind and a great man,” wrote a trainee.
Bodybuilder Brian Gates Tweeted, “Rest in peace to this Legend, Doug Brignole. Thank you for inspiring me and teaching me to think better regarding fitness and health. The impact you have made on me and others will never be forgotten.”
Brignole started competing in bodybuilding contests when he was just 16 years old. Over the next four decades, he won a number of titles, including AAU Mr. America in the medium tall division and AAU Mr. Universe in the light heavyweight division in 1982.
More recently, he won the Muscle Beach International in 2014 and AAU Mr. Universe in the open division in 2019. Doug also organized seminars in various cities in the US, and across other countries, including Chile, Brazil, Mexico, Norway, and Japan. He was also a public speaker and an author.
Very sad to hear such a physically strong, dedicated man has lost his life from what many are saying was a heart attack.
We know that right now, MANY very healthy people are dropping dead from random and unexpected heart attacks, and it makes you wonder what the hell is going on, and if Doug’s “famous words” might have something to do with all of this.
Let’s hope somebody out there with resources and medical knowledge and no political agenda investigates finally what’s going on and give the country and these families and victims the answers they deserve.
RIP Mr. Brignole.
