So, it’s been a while since my last post and I wanted to get back into it by publishing a post about a Brazilian up and coming socialite and star. Considering my wife is:
- Her fan, and …
- My wife is Brazilian herself as well.
I love learning and talking about different cultures because I believe it’s important to respect other people and to not limit your perception of the world by only what goes on in the US. You know, the world has a population of 7 billion and only 300 million (4.3%) of that population resides in the United States. I think you’re pretty short minded if you believe the world is pretty much an extension of the U.S.
Anyways, with that aside, I’ll be highlighting Barbara Evans, international model and TV star. Barbara Evans, is relatively unknown in the US, but she’s quickly gaining popularity and fame down south in Brazil. Barbara is most known for her recent appearance on the super popular Brazilian reality TV show, known as “A Fazenda” (The Farm). For all of you out there that are into this type of TV, and all the drama that comes with it then you already have something in common with a lot of Brazilians. Brazilians are known for their famous “soap operas” and are generally very interactive, social, and outgoing. Me personally, I’m not a fan of this type of TV, haha, but since my wife likes it so much I give her some company. After all, she does put up with my ESPN, and sports games, so I think it’s only fair.
Just to put it in more familiar terms for most of you, picture shows like “Big Brother”, “Keeping up with the Kardashians” and you get the equivalent of “A Fazenda” to Brazilians. I watched a couple of episodes with my wife while her eyes were glued on the TV screen. The participants in “A Fazenda” (The Farm) are voted out one by one, until the last person standing is declared the winner and also claims a nice reward money. Barbara Evans won out by getting 54.87% of the votes, and claimed her roughly $1 million USD prize money (R$2 million Brazilian Reais). So, since my wife likes her so much I’m linking to one of my wife’s favorite sites all about Barbara Evans.
For all of you Brazilians out there, a BIG shout out to all of you, and you should definitely check out this website. It’s got a wide array of topics covering Barbara Evans, from her participation in “A Fazenda”, her love life and relationships with her boyfriends, about the topic of Barbara Evans being “gorda” (fat), etc. Bookmark it, share it with your friends and tune in for the latest news on your favorite celeb, Barbara Evans.
