Model and dancer Gilliane Bonheur, 23, is desperate to take part in the 7th edition of the popular Miss Bumbum contest but was falling foul of one of its few rules... no butt implants.
So she had Dr Eric Fredrik remove the silicone implants, and filmed the surgery to prove it to the contest organizers. Although all sorts of surgeries are allowed, butts must be natural. Gillian used the opportunity to also have some work on her left ear and nose. The half French and half Italian model had the two 250ml implants placed in 2012 to have a more curvy behind, to help her in the competitive Brazilian modeling market. because she wanted a more curvaceous behind. She said she wanted to look more "typically Brazilian".
Miss Bum Bum 2017 will for the first time have a foreign contestant, American Jenny Summers, 29, a former Playboy bunny. This year's competition also features a polygamous contestant, Rangel Carlos, 23, who is in a relationship with a man and a woman, with whom she raises a son.
