2008 Sloggi Final - Best Bums Are From Brazil And France

Aussie Pete blog has gone crazy with traffic today as a result of the thousands of Google searches from all over the world for information on today's Show Me Your Sloggi - "World's Best Bum" final. I presume this is due to the current shortage of pictures of the event and the winners - I'm sure the web will be flooded with them soon.

In the meantime, I've managed to source some high-resolution images from the Sloggi official press kit for my loyal readers (I've reduced the size a little, for use on this blog).

Following on from my previous articles - Australia's Best Bum and Singapore's Best Bum, the official press release from the Paris Newswire follows below the pictures. In short, Melanie Nunes Fronckowiak, 20, Brazil has the "Most Beautiful Female Bottom in the World" and Saiba Bombote, 27, France, has the "Most Beautiful Male Bottom in the World".
