Well, if you thought Miss BumBum competitions couldn’t get more entertaining, you were sorely mistaken.
Brazil’s annual Miss BumBum competition came to an unusual end after contestants broke out into a violent exchange onstage following repeated accusations that the other contestant had cheated. The fight had apparently started because one of the contestants claimed the other had a surgically enhanced rear end.
The newsworthy scenes took place on Monday just after Ellen Santana was named 2018’s official Miss BumBum. Sananta is a 31-year old dancer and model who was representing her home state of Rondônia, located in the north of Brazil.
Uva, who is a 27-year-old massage therapist from Rio Grande Do Sul in southern Brazil, could be heard yelling that the entire competition was rigged and Santana’s had plastic surgery done on her butt before the competition. Uva ripped the winner’s sash off Santana’s body and started hitting her.
“I fulfilled all the rules of the game, my butt is real, but her butt is plastic!”
“Miss BumBum is a farce. Today I could prove all this.”
The competition’s organizers were compelled to step in to calm the contestants and make sure the victor’s sash was returned to Santana.
Since 2011, the Miss BumBum competition has been held every single year in Brazil. It was originally founded by Caucau Oliver, a local journalist and entrepreneur who seeks to recognize the best butts in Brazil.
After the spat between the contestants, Oliver assured everyone that the fierce drama was “part of the contest”.
The competition was broadcast on live television and had 27 contestants from each of the country’s different states, with the top 15 butts making it to the final.
The winner of the competition receives 50,000 Reals (USD 13,000) in endorsement deals and becomes an instant national superstar.
This year’s competition was more ‘woke’ than others, with the inclusion of two trans women for the first time. However, this decision wasn’t widely accepted. Many said they didn’t get how the competition could be open to “bottoms which are men’s bottoms … whichever way you look at it.”
Paula Oliveria, one of the transgender participants, claimed her competitors were just too scared too lose to someone who was born male.
“I’m not offended by what they said, because it’s clear they want me out because I’ve got a much sexier a–.”
“They are feeling threatened because they are seeing a trans who is more beautiful than them.”
As for the altercation at the end of the competition, I suppose its up to you to decide whether Uva’s claims were true or not.
