Video: Finally a beauty pageant we can get behind!
We here at JOE take our duties to inform, educate and entertain very seriously. We realise that it's Monday it’s the beginning of October and we’re probably facing into a pretty bleak winter. Fear not, loyal reader, Brazil is launching its 'Miss Bum Bum' competition for 2012. YEAH!!!
By Brian Moss
Yes the finest behinds in all of Brazil will be vying for the votes to take the much coveted crown (don’t fret Fat Ronaldo is not entering ... he's on a diet).
More than 500 competitors enter the contest each year, and finalists are narrowed to 27 — one from each of Brazil's Federative Units - very democratic
Online voting will determine 15 finalists, who will travel to Sao Paolo in November to compete for the title - so presumably the internet will be broken in Brazil around polling time.
The competition is taken very seriously and none of the girls want to finish bottom of the pile. You're welcome.
As if that’s not enough good news one of JOE’s favourites, Pamela Anderson, will be guest Judge at the competition. Pam knows a thing or to about the perfect bottom (we all saw that Tommy Lee video).
Its not all bum fun and games though. The pageant has had its share of scandal. Brazilian new site Globo reported that Cibelle Ribeiro, this year's favorite to win, was almost disqualified when judges suspected she might have bum implants - but she refused to take an X-ray. Ribeiro has, however, since submitted to the X-ray proving that she has got no cosmetic assistance and is now back in the running for the crown-thank the lord.
Here'swhy she's favourite.
