A BEAUTY COMPETITION IN A PRISON OF WOMEN OF RIO DE JANEIRO

Río de Janeiro /Prisoner of prison in Rio de Janeiro have been competing for twelve years in a beauty contest for the title of Miss Talavera Bruce and an award this year has been an electric fan that has won a prisoner, 26 years, sentenced at 45.

Located in the Bangu neighborhood on Rio de Janeiro‘s west side, the penitentiary holds the event 12 years ago with the aim of rebuilding the prisoners’ self-esteem, Talavera Bruce director Janaina Fernandes told EFE.

Five months of preparations precede the big day, starting with the selection of pre-candidates.

“We first pass around a list to see who’s really interested in participating. Then we look to see if their behavior is good and make a selection” to narrow the candidates down to 10 finalists, Fernandes said.

Around 150 of the prison’s 450 inmates opted to participate in this year’s contest; a non-governmental organization and a Protestant church help organize the event, providing clothing, make-up artists and hair stylists for the last day.

On Thursday, the 10 finalists passed by several cells and heard numerous catcalls on their way to the patio, where one-by-one they paraded before a team of outside judges.

Mayana Rosa, 26, was announced as the winner of the first prize in this year’s contest: an electric fan, and the next two finalists took an iron and a hair dryer, respectively

“I saw my family. I won the champion’s sash,” and the fan is useful inside the prison “because it’s very hot and there are a lot of mosquitoes.”, affirmed happy to arrive at the top Miss Talavera Bruce, who turns 45 years of prison to be part of a gang of women who robbed cargo trucks.

Mayana not rules out participating in the contest again: “This time I gained five kilos (11 pounds) and I hope to lose that weight in time for next year,” she said. “Or to be blessed and not be here.”
