RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 8 (UPI) -- The Brazilian soccer team may have disappointed during the World Cup last month, but that doesn't mean the country is done with competitions.
The contestants for the 2014 Miss Bumbum Competition, also referred to as "Miss Butt Brazil," have been announced.
Twenty-seven women will compete for the coveted title this year and the winner will take home a $22,000 prize.
The field will be trimmed down to 15 after an online vote and a jury will pick a winner during a ceremony in November.
Japan has a similar contest and there is also a U.S. version held in Miami.
It's worth noting that winning the contest isn't everything. Andressa Urach, a Miss Bumbum runner-up, was able turn her near victory into a gig as a World Cup reporter.
