She won against 49 other contestants.
19-year-old Gao Qian joined and won a contest held at a shopping mall in the provincial capital of Shenyang, Liaoning Province. Apparently, the competition was about who has the most beautiful buttocks in China.
The contest was the Chinese equivalent to Brazil’s very popular “Miss BumBum Competition.” However, Qian 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.’
Qian is a fitness fanatic herself and spends many hours in the gym every week in order to keep her body fit. She says she was very pleased with her performance and would carry on training no matter how hard it might get.
Though her country was more conservative than that of other western countries, Qian 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.’
Despite having the ‘most beautiful bum in China’, Qians says she would only use baggy clothes when going out because of many embarrassing experiences she had in the past.
According to her, people would often look at her and point at her behind. The most embarrassing for her would be when a couple fought in front of her after the boyfriend stared at her bottom.
Gao Qian was awarded 5,000 yuan (£568) in cash.
