Congratulations to Erika Canella, the winner of Miss Bum Bum 2016. The butt model from Bahia, Brazil was the big winner in this year’s annual contest, officially giving her the title of the “Best Butt in Brazil,” and therefore the world. As the winner, Erika receives $22K modeling contract and the opportunity to make much more in endorsement deals.
She takes over the throne from Suzy Cortez, who actually made it into more than a couple of tabloids throughout her reign as Miss BumBum queen.
Believe it or not, the Miss BumBum contest is highly anticipated throughout the year by Brazilians and the media–partly because of the ridiculous name but also because people like to look at Brazilian butts. This year, over 17 million votes were made for the finalists. But it was not without its own share of cat fights. From The Sun:
Divas Danny Morais and Karyn Alvyshave – also known as MC Sexy – have been accusing each other of cheating after voting closed last night.
Both accused each other of bribery as they bid for the coveted title.
Model Danny Morais, from Rio, also claimed arch rival MC Sexy had bottom implants that give her a bumpy 46 inch booty.
This is strictly against pageant rules.
Erika managed to stay out of all the baloney, though, and won herself a title that she should be very happy about. Check out her hottest photos in the gallery below and tell us if you think she’s a winner.
