Most American men will tell you they are either a boob guy or a butt guy. But in Brazil, it’s apparently all about the butt.

According to Huffington Post, the “Miss Bumbum” competition kicks off today in Sao Paulo with 27 lovely ladies representing Brazil’s 26 states and one federal district hoping to win the country’s annual competition for having the best ass.

Brazilians have until November to vote online and narrow the field down to 15 for the finals, where the winner will take home roughly $22,000 in endorsement deals and “instant celebrity.”

For the first time in the competition’s history, twins will be duking it out for the honor of best caboose, as Rafaella and Graziella Fornazieri have both entered the contest.

Last year’s champion, Dai Macedo, told a French newspaper that to win the title of “Miss Bumbum,” it takes a lot of devotion.

“No nightclubs. No sweets,” Macedo said. “I went to the gym Saturdays and Sundays.”

Macedo won the title of “Miss Bumbum 2013” after sporting a moneymaker that measured in at 42 inches, proving once again that size does matter.

Finally, in the spirit of the competition, here are six of our early favorites to win 2014’s “Miss Bumbum.”
