- Claudia Alende, 22, from Parana, Brazil, was runner up in the 2014 Miss Bumbum contest, a pageant to find the best derriere in Brazil
- The brunette beauty has been dubbed the Brazilian Megan Fox because she has the same plump lips, ice blue eyes and arched brows as the star
- Claudia has already amassed 1.2 million followers on Instagram and is close to matching 29-year-old Megan’s 1.8 million followers
Unlike many celebrities, actress Megan Fox has something of a scaled back presence on social media, and only posts the odd few photos every few weeks. But fans who are desperately seeking a regular selfie from the star need look no further than the account of her Brazilian doppelganger – who has managed to amass a staggering 1.2 million followers, thanks to her uncanny resemblance to the star.
Just one year after she lost out in the final of the 2014 Miss Bumbum competition, a Brazilian pageant aimed at finding the best derriere in the country, Claudia Alende, 22, from Parana, Brazil, is now finding fame online as a Megan Fox lookalike, captivating followers with her stunning looks, and her frequent social media updates.
The Miss Bumbum runner-up has amassed a dedicated – and ever-expanding – following on Instagram, with thousands of fans touting her as a dead ringer for the 29-year-old Transformers star.
Who’s who? Claudia Alende, 22, from Parana, Brazil, is a dead ringer for actress Megan Fox, 29

Indeed, Claudia’s social media presence is quickly catching up to Megan, who currently has 1.8 million Instagram followers of her own.
And unlike Megan, who last posted on her Instagram account 19 weeks ago, Claudia keeps her fans happy by sharing numerous selfies of herself a day.
Her dark hair, full pout, ice-blue eyes and perfectly arched eyebrows are the same features that catapulted Megan to fame.

Some people even prefer her to the original, with one man commenting on Instagram page: ‘You’re even better than Megan Fox.’
However, unlike Megan, who posts casual pictures of herself with her sons Noah, two and Bohdi, one, as well as snaps from her red carpet appearances, Claudia is often flaunting her ample cleavage and her plump booty – which earned her second place at last year’s Miss Bumbum contest.
Although Megan certainly has the body to rival her imitators. After being named the face of Emporio Armani underwear and Armani jeans in 2010, Megan told W magazine that it is a struggle for her to take on a high-fashion look because of her enviable curves.

‘There are some women you could put in underwear and photograph them, and it looks really classy and it doesn’t necessarily provoke a pinup image,’ she said. ‘But with me it does, immediately, as soon as I’m in underwear.’
While Megan most recently starred in an ad campaign for Korean skincare brand Belport, Claudia is using her rising fame to endorse numerous products on her Instagram page, including Fruiteatox detox tea and White Brite Smiles’ home teeth whitening kit.
Claudia also has an impressive Facebook and Twitter following of 200,894 and 36.6 people, respectfully.

And when it comes to plastic surgery rumors, Megan claims to be au naturel, while her doppelganger admitted before the 2014 Miss BumBum competition that she has had work done.
The rules of the contest allow for participants to have plastic surgery anywhere but on the their derrieres.
‘It was [because] everyone was doing [it] so I did [it],’ Claudia told NPR in October of her past cosmetic procedures.

Because she never specifies what she has had done, it is difficult to say if she intended to look like Megan or it was a happy accident.
Claudia does admit to wearing colored contact lenses in order to imitate the bright blue irises that have become something of a signature feature for her famous doppelganger.
And because they are so real looking, one of her many commenters on Instagram asked if anyone knew what brand of contact lens she is wearing.

Claudia also admitted to NPR that she entered the Miss Bumbum contest because she is hoping it will help her become a TV presenter or an actress.
‘The contest is famous around the world, and I want to be recognized around the world and become famous, too,’ she said.
Claudia made headlines earlier this year when she branded the 2014 Miss Bumbum winner ‘an attention-seeking sl*t’ after she posted a photograph of her naked body painted with an image of the Virgin Mary for Easter.

Indianara Carvalho, 23, shared the provocative image on Good Friday, the day that millions of Catholics solemnly remembered the crucifixion and death of Christ.
Claudia also told Daily Mail online that Indianara, who had hymen surgery last year to ‘restore’ her virginity so she could enjoy her first time again with ‘someone special’, never deserved to win the title last November.
‘I honestly have no idea how she won,’ she said. ‘She is too muscly, it means her body is ugly, she certainly doesn’t represent the Brazilian woman.’
