Brazila's Miss BumBum contest in chaos, contestants were accused of cheating

BRAZIL’S Miss BumBum contest was plunged into chaos today after six contestants were accused of cheating by using ROBOTS to cast votes.

The eagerly awaited final of the world famous “best bottom” competition is due to take place next month, when 15 well endowed beauties will battle it out for the coveted title.

The original 27 contestants found out last month who had received the most public votes to make it through to the final.

But the popular beauty pageant launched a probe after a website claimed some of the women had used computer software to amass thousands of online votes in a just a few hours.

Now organisers confirmed six finalists have been docked 40,000 votes each “for the use of or attempted use of robots to interfere with the public vote.”

They include favourite for the title Rosie Oliveira, representing the jungle state of Amazonas, who came first in the public ballot with 149,404 votes.

Second placed Pietra Maya, who got 148,547 votes, and third-placed Hellen Cristyan, who gained 144,736, have also been accused of cheating.

The scandal, which could see the women eliminated from the competition, has thrown the pageant into disarray just weeks before the live final at a ceremony in Sao Paulo on November 6.

The allegations surfaced when Brazilian website iG Gente claimed they had evidence some of the Miss BumBum hopefuls had cheated by paying computer experts to use software which cast thousands of votes for them online.

Many of the voting surges happened in the early hours of the morning, it claimed.

One one day, the voting page for Pietra Maya, representing the state of Parana, showed her votes climbing by 28,188 during just 91 minutes from 4.07am.

Two contestants, who didn’t want to be named, told the website that “everybody” knew a number of the women who could afford to pay for the software had falsely inflated their share of the public vote.
