It's a cheeky competition that's all about... bottoms. Brazilian beauties bearing their booties literally stopped traffic as they posed in tiny green and yellow bikinis on Sao Paulo's bustling main avenue. All for the imaginatively-titled 'Miss BumBum' pageant. For some, taking part in the celebration of curves was a dream come true. SOUNDBITE Miss Bum-Bum contestant, Fernanda Abraao, saying (Portuguese): "There's a time of life when we have to change, so this competition came along to add something to my life, it's a lovely competition. For me it's the best competition that is out there at the moment. It's something different." SOUNDBITE Miss Bum-Bum contestant, Debora Dunhill, saying (Portuguese): "It is an honour to compete in Miss BumBum, I never participated before, I always dreamed of taking part." Over 500 competitiors initally signed up to have a go at being crowned queen of the rear. Of the 27 lucky ladies chosen to be the face - or rather backside - of each Brazilian state, 15 will be put through by public vote to shake their bum-bums in November's final, where being the bottom puts you on top.
