A woman with a curvy body has emerged as the champion of the ‘most beautiful buttocks’ contest in China. The pretty women identified as Gao Qian, 19, who stunned the judges with her shapely rear, confessed that she couldn’t wear tights on the street because ‘people would surround me and point at my backside’.
Hailing from Shenyang, the provincial capital of Liaoning Province in north-east China, Ms Gao is the winner of the ‘most beautiful buttocks’ contest on June 24. The sought-after contest, held in a shopping mall in Shenyang, was China’s answer to the hugely popular Miss BumBum competition in Brazil.
During the event, some 50 women proudly writhed, wiggled and shook their curvy bottoms to get the attention of seven judges.
In daily life, Ms Gao is a part-time personal trainer and a popular vlogger who makes a living by broadcasting her daily activities online.
The timid woman, who is 5ft 7in and weighs 60kg (132lbs), recently realised that she ‘has the kind of body for the competition’ after her friends pointed it out to her.
She then put herself under gruelling training to prepare for the contest. A fitness fanatic herself, Ms Gao spent averagely six hours a day doing thousands of squats and lunges to keep her body in shape.
‘I’m very pleased with the results,’ Mr Gao told MailOnline. ‘I will carry on training no matter how hard it might get.’
‘This is the career I love,’ she added.
Mr Gao said her buttocks are natural and she has never had implants. To her, a beautiful rear means it’s ‘curvy’ and ‘plump’.
The newly crowned beauty queen said that Kim Kardashian has the perfect proportion because ‘her buttocks are curvy and her waist is tiny’.
However, she also feels that Asian women have a disadvantage compared to Caucasian or Latino women when it comes to their curves.
‘It might be a genetic thing or the bone structure,’ she said. ‘In addition, they have more systematic training.’
‘I follow Brazilian media and read about the Miss BumBum. It’s be my dream to attend the competition one day.’
In a country whose culture is still relatively conservative, Mr Gao said her family support what she does, and she feels lucky about it.
‘My father gave me much encouragement after I signed up for the competition. My family also think it’s a very positive thing to do.’
China’s ‘most beautiful buttocks’ contest is organised by Saipu, a Beijing-based fitness club.
