The quest to find Brazil’s best bottom has crowned its first black winner. Samba queen and model Erika Canela was selected at the winner of the annual Miss BumBum competition during the final at a Sao Paulo nightclub.
Erika said she was very happy to “show the Brazilian beauty. I was very surprised. I am very happy and grateful to my mother, who voted for several mornings”.
Ten million people cast votes online for the 15 finalists. Plastic surgery is allowed but not on the bottom area – with some candidates providing x-rays to prove their buxom buttocks are real.
The Miss Granny Bumbum winner was Dona Geralda, 64, a former Brazilian Big Brother contestant.
