There’s Big Trouble In The Miss BumBum Election In Brazil
So you thought that our U.S. presidential election was full of controversy and crazy? In Brazil, there are accusations of vote fixing and (gasp!) butt enhancement in the annual Miss BumBum competition.
The Miss BumBum Pageant, now in its sixth year, is Brazil's annual Ode to the Female Hinder in which 27 contestants (representing each of the nation's 27 states) compete for votes on who has the best butt. The winner gets 50,000 reais ($23,000) in endorsement deals and modeling contracts. Instant butt fame!
Miss BumBum is a big deal there, and that's why it's imperative that the competition not be tainted by scandal of any kind.
But this year it's swimming in it. Two contestants are accusing each other of the most heinous of crimes. Danny Morais (right) has accused rival Karyn Alvys (left) of rigging the election. Mail Online:
"I was keeping an eye on the live voting and she was right down at the bottom, right up until the last day of voting," Morais said. "Then she suddenly got millions more votes in the space of a few hours.
"To get so many votes out of nothing is impossible without cheating. While all of us were working hard trying to convince people to vote for us, MC Sexy did nothing. But she always seemed more than confident that she would make it to the final. I always suspected she was up to something."
In return, Alvys -- also known as MC Sexy -- said:
"I believe [Morais] could have had silicone implants in her bottom. Besides, to have a bottom as big as hers requires a lot of work, dieting and weight-lifting, which is proof enough that it's not really hers. She goes to the same gym as me and she can't even lift 10kg, she probably goes once a week and sometimes not even that.
"She even begged me to take her on as one of my dancers, but my management didn't like her because her body isn't curvy and she looks like a man. After that she began to act very strange with me."
The original 27 contestants are now down to 15 finalists, who gathered a total of 17 million votes. The winner will be announced tonight.
Meanwhile, one of the other finalists, Cleo Cadillac, 33, has dropped a bombshell -- saying that someone contacted her to reveal that the voting could be changed for her to win, for a price. Cadillac:
"Someone contacted me by phone and said he could hack the voting system and put me in the top two. He wanted me to pay him R$8,000 [$4,000]. I refused, I didn't think I needed to cheat to make it to the final. Other girls have said the same thing happened to them."
