The contest will take place on September 30th in Mexico City, and will see females from across the world, including the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Spain, France, Germany, Portugal, Mexico and Brazil, flaunt their pert posteriors and battle it out to win the title of the world’s best bottom.
One of the favourites tipped to claim the crown for her country is Sheyla Mell, who will represent Mexico.

However, the Miss BumBum event was previously held in Brazil when it was a national competition, but it is now going global.
The competition was set up by entrepreneur Cacau Oliver, 40 from Brazil, who was inspired by a similar French competition.
The website explains: ‘The idea of the contest was inspired by “Show Me Your Sloggi”, which happens in France.’
‘There were 8 successful editions in Brazil, 216 participants, many of them became national and international celebrities after their participation.’

But there is one vital rule the contestants must adhere to, and it is they must not have had any surgery on their bottoms – although cosmetic procedures carried out on other areas of the body are allowed.
The competition states: ‘Participants may have performed cosmetic surgeries on any part of the body, except for the buttocks.’
