Lovers of the bottom gathered in France yesterday for the Le Monde Derrier finals.
This annual contest has grown in size in recent years after contestants from the USA signed up. Last year's winner, Melanie Amine, from Brazil has gone on to model underwear, jeans and sofas across the world in a lucrative modelling contract, despite having a face like a crumpled paper bag. Mel Amine is now a multi-millionaire. The winner of the best male arse contest went to Peter Mandelson of the UK, who the judges felt was just a complete arse, and nobody else could compete.
There was a shock entry from France this year that stole the show and walked away with the top prize in all four categories: Best Female Bottom, Best Male Bottom, Best Overall Bottom and Most Strokable Bottom.
Renault Mégane II, a car, has been determined to have the best bottom. As the judges could not decide if the car was male or female, they have awarded it as a winner in both categories. With it's smooth gloss red paint covering it's rear end, it was also the one the judges could not stop stroking giving it a clean sweep across the board.
Phillipe Tête-Pénis, the Mégan's designer had this to say: "Shake-a that rear!"
