Not only do most fans not like Josh, but most of the cast doesn't either. He is the instigator of the bunch always causing trouble and running his mouth, being rude to the his fellow artists. The human canvas jury has voted him in the bottom designs a few times now with his designs, and in many cases he's skating by with doing the minimum possible to meet the requirements of the challenges. In many cases, fans have seen him trying to manipulate his clients into changing their designs to suit what he knows is best or easiest so that he isn't really doing much work at all compared to those that are stepping outside of their comfort zones and really giving it their all. This alone makes him seem less than worthy of the prize and the title. However, there are a few other contestants left that could still give Josh a run for his money.
Many fans won't be too surprised if they see Tatu Baby go home since she asked to leave the competition a few episodes ago. She was voted back by America and she has admitted that her head and her heart aren't in the game. She isn't doing the best work that fans know that she can, but for some reason, she seems to be a favorite of the judges right now. Considering the fact that she's asked to go home, perhaps it's time to let her.
Jason Clay Dunn has had little screen time, however, he was honored with the privilege of getting to tattoo Dave Navarro, the host of "Ink Master." However, Jason's panic disorder, and the fact that he chooses over the top designs that he can't complete in the time limit is really hurting his chance of winning the "Ink Master" title.
Jime Litwalk is likely going to be sent home soon too since he can't seem to get over the fact that the competition calls for other designs than just new school tattoos, his specialty. If Jime can't start showing his skill and expertise in all areas instead of repeating his same mistake, it's unlikely that we'll see him go far at all.
Kyle Dunbar has already lost everything for this show, literally losing his home to foreclosure, so he needs the "Ink Master" title and money the most. Kyle is a strong artist that hasn't placed in the top or the bottom but has seemingly flown under the radar. Now that there are fewer competitors, he may start showing up in the top or bottom more, however, he stands a good chance in winning since he's been a team player and has stepped up to the plate and delivered what the judges have asked for, despite the fact that he claims nearly every tattoo is "impossible."
Joey Hamilton is Josh Hibbard's biggest rival right now. The two are matched fairly evenly in skill, however, Joey seems to have let the fame of things get the better of him, making him a little less focused than he should be. If Joey can put some more focus into his work and start competing as he should be, he also stands a really good chance of winning.
