Gisele Bündchen will award the winner of the World Cup

Well this is an unexpected turn of events for the World Cup (if you are following this football madness). Yesterday the Boston Globe reported that, due to Brazil’s president’s unpopularity at the moment, the country has opted for a replacement in awarding the World Cup Trophy to the winning team in July. The President will be replaced by none other than supermodel Gisele Bundchen. “Why,” you ask? Well, you aren’t the only one asking. People took to twitter to express their confusion over the choice. 

If you’re involved at all in the fashion world, you’ll know that Gisele Bundchen is perhaps the most famous fashion face ever to step foot out of Brazil. Sure, she has dozens of fellow Brazilians taking over the model kingdom around the globe, but she’s still the reigning champ. But does that make her a right fit for the honour of awarding the World Cup trophy? We’re not quite sure. We can say one thing, however. Whichever team does win the World Cup this year, we think they’ll be mighty pleased at the opportunity presented to mingle with one of the most beautiful women in the world.
