Paula Oliveira Becomes First Trans Miss Bum Bum Contestant
One of the most interesting pageants that happens in Brazil is the Miss BumBum one.
It started in 2011, and has women from each of Brazil's 27 states vying for the title of having Brazil's best derriere. People from all over the world can vote for their favorite. The finalists then participate in a photoshoot and strutting down a catwalk before the winner is declared.
The contest is so popular that the winner and the runner up becomes an instant celebrity in that nation, and it can also lead to lucrative endorsement deals.
Also in 2014, 2012 Miss Bum Bum runner up and cosmetic surgery advocate Andressa Urach ended up in the hospital suffering from near fatal septic shock after the 500ml of Pmma and hydrogel pumped in her upper thighs to make them look thicker instead started rotting the upper leg muscles to the point she had to undergo emergency surgery to get the fluid drained.
But in the last year of this competition, it makes history. This year, one of the Miss Bum Bum contestants for the first time is a trans woman in the person of 27 year old Paula Oliveira.
A serriere she hopes that will be crowned the best in Brazil.
We'll see if that happens for her.
