Twenty beautiful representatives from cities in the Vale dos Sinos region participated on another qualifying round for the big final of Garota Verão (Summer Girl) Rio Grande do Sul 2013, one of the most traditional beauty contests in Brazil. Again, only two advanced to the finals, and they were GV Ivoti, Carolina Linck, 17, and GV Campo Bom, Bruna Gabriela Schuster, 18.
The representative of São Leopoldo, who many though had a fair shot at the big title, did not advance, for the shock of the huge audience attending the event, which happened in the city of Estância Velha.
Judges argued that starting in 2013, Garota Verão looks for the “model type”, and the stunner from São Leopoldo was more the “beauty queen” type.
Garota Verão 2013 will be chosen on March 2, in a live telecast event which will once again take place on the Capão da Canoa beach.
