Miss Bumbum Brazil just recently concluded its 6th edition where Erika Canela was announced the winner of this year’s contest.
The 20 year old model was announced last month, she is also the first black woman to win the contest that comes with a £18,000 winner’s prize.
A whooping 17 million people voted in the contest, it was comically billed as ‘the election that really matters’. The competition was created to celebrate the curviest bum in all of brazil, when 17 million people vote in a contest, you’re sure it’s very important.
The number is more than the number of people who voted during Brexit. She told MailOnline: ‘I can’t believe it. I never imagined it would be me. I’d decided to give up modelling and go and study medicine. But now this has changed everything. I’m ecstatic.’
‘But I’m not taking this role lightly. I promise I’ll represent Brazilian beauty to the best of my ability, with all the hard work and dedication that the title deserves. This is the first of many conquests.’
For the last 12 months, 16 women have battled it out for a chance to be officially named the owner of the sexiest bottom in Brazil.
The event’s presenter Ana Paula Minerato, 34, explained why winning means so much. ‘Bumbums are a national passion,’ she said.
‘Brazilian guys don’t care much about boobs, for them it’s all about the bottoms. Brazilian women are blessed with shapely bottoms.
Well, congratulations to Erika Canela, enjoy your reign!
