According to TMZ in their report, the 20-year-old model Canela became the first black woman to win the Brazilian pageant during its six-year span. The contest to crown the best “bum” in the South American country featured more than 17 million people voting to determine the winner. The competition began with 27 contestants and was eventually narrowed down to 15 finalists via an online public vote. After that, a jury chooses the grand prize winner. As the Miss BumBum winner, Canela receives $22,000 in endorsement deals. According to Daily Mail, Canela was full of excitement and pride over her achievement. “I can’t believe it. I never imagined it would be me. I’d decided to give up modeling and go and study medicine. But now this has changed everything. I’m ecstatic. “But I’m not taking this role lightly. I promise I’ll represent Brazilian beauty to the best of my ability, with all the hard work and dedication that the title deserves. This is the first of many conquests.” h/t Inquisitr
At the moment there seems to be some confusion as to Canela’s exact age. While TMZ reported she is 20, other media sources including Huffington Post and Daily Mail have indicated an age of 24 for the model.
The cheeky Miss BumBum contest was first created by journalist and entrepreneur Cacau Oliver.
