Source - This year’s Miss BumBum competition ended in a shambles after contestants resorted to violence on stage following cheating allegations.
The fight was sparked by one contestant accusing the other of having a surgically enhanced derriere.
The eye-popping scenes unfolded on Monday shortly after Ellen Santana was crowned the winner for Miss BumBum 2018.
The 31-year-old model and dancer was representing the northern Brazilian state of Rondônia in the competition. But moments after she was declared the winner, she was physically stripped of her winner’s sash by fellow contestant Aline Uva from Rio Grande Do Sul, in the south of Brazil.
Uva, a 27-year-old massage therapist, was heard shouting that the competition was a farce and claiming that the winner’s butt was surgically enhanced.
She added: “I fulfilled all the rules of the game, my butt is real, but her butt is plastic!”
“Miss Bumbum is a farce. Today I could prove all this.”
Organizers of the annual competition were forced to intervene to calm the frantic scenes and ensure the winner’s sash was handed back to Santana.
My thoughts and prayers go out today to the pride of Rondonia, Ellen Santana. Believe me, where I come from, we know what it’s like to achieve the pinnacle of your chosen profession only to see your character and all your achievements called into question. We. Can. Relate.
Ellen Santana came from nothing. She had no advantages. She puts her thong on one leg hole at a time, same as Uva and all the other contestants. All she had was a nice body and a burning desire to have the best bum in Brazil. So pulled herself up by the stiletto straps, did all the crunches, watched what she ate, sacrificed, outworked the others, and willed herself to the Miss BumBum championship.
And what does she get for it? Resentment from all those lesser entries. The Uva’s of the world who can’t accept that they’re not good enough. That they don’t have Ellen’s waist-to-hip ratio, her glute firmness, her lack of cottage cheese on her thighs. So they accuse her of cheating. Of illegally inflating her butt to gain a competitive advantage. Because it’s what small, petty minds with inferior asses do when they’ve been beaten, fair and square.
Just don’t let the bastards get you down, ES18. Take the high road. Don’t get down in the mud with them. Your sash looks the same as the sash of all the legends of the past, and you’ve earned your place in their mighty company. Just continue to hold your head and your buttcheeks high. And keep representing yourself and your pageant with all the dignity deserving of the one, true Miss BumBum.
