Bringing up the rear: Can you identify the 10 bottoms in our cheeky quiz?

Idris Elba and Rachel Riley have wrapped up this year's "Rear Of The Year" contest, but can you spot the owner of these buttocks?


The actor Idris Elba, best known for his portrayal of Nelson Mandela, in the film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, and Countdown star Rachel Riley have been named as winners of the 2017 Rear Of The Year award.

To celebrate their achievement in this prestigious contest, here at Paddy Power we’ve decided to pay tribute to bottoms throughout the world by creating our very own arse-based quiz.  Can you successfully identify the ten characters below from just a brief flash of their bottoms?

Play our quiz now!

Kim Kardashian

Yes, a nice easy one to kick things off, it’s Kim Kardashian owner of the most famous bottom in the world. It was widely reported that the reality star recently had insured her bum for $21 million! Smashing stuff!

Donald Trump

Yes, Donald Trump here taking time out of his busy golf schedule to spend a couple of hours playing tennis. Trump was recently described by White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci as a “phenomenal athlete”. Presumably, by the word “phenomenal” he actually meant “massive” and by the word “athlete” he actually meant “dickhead”.

Eden Hazard

Not only has Eden Hazard got a great arse, but he’s the only footballer in the world whose bum has, not one, but two dedicated twitter accounts!

Stupid sexy Flanders

Yes. It looks like he’s wearing nothin’ at all! It’s Ned Flanders from the Simpsons…

A tomato

Yeah, that’s just a arse-shaped tomato, isn’t it.
Does that even count?


That is of course the thoroughbred superstar, Frankel! Frankel was unbeaten in his fourteen-race career and was the highest-rated racehorse in the world from May 2011. He won the 2000 Guineas in 2011, the Queen Anne Stakes in 2012, and he won “Horse & Hound” magazine’s coveted “Hind of the Year” award on three separate occasions.
(that last one may be a lie)

Rafael Nadal

That’s Rafael Nadal, who famously scratches at his buttocks before every point. He’s previously described the trait in interviews as “a nervous habit”, but when I went to see a doctor about the same thing in 2015, he just prescribed me a tube of Anusol.

A mushroom

F**k’s sake. That’s just another specimen from my extensive collection of “Vegetables that look like genitals”. I’ve got this mushroom and the tomato from earlier, a deformed carrot which looks like a cock and balls and a turnip that looks like Robbie Savage.

Michelangelo’s David

If you got this one correct, give yourself a pat on the bottom. It’s Michelangelo’s David, a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture. For years, many hundreds of people have spent hours queuing up, hoping to catch a glimpse of David’s sensational balls – much like Beckham’s Paris Saint Germain career in that respect.

Piers Morgan

Well spotted.

Latest odds

The traders at Paddy Power have already priced up next year’s competition, and we go EVENS on Idris Elba repeating his 2017 triumph again next year.  R&B signer and kestrel-fancier, Craig David is second in the betting at 2/1, and the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is an outside chance at 100/1.


EVS – Idris Elba (defending champion)
2/1 – Craig David
3/1 – Anthony Joshua
10/1 – Paddy Power
100/1 – Jeremy Corbyn

In the women’s event, Kelly Brook is the early favourite at 8/11, with Amber from Love Island and Suzanne Reid second in the market at 3/1.  Riley is 5s to repeat her 2017 victory, but we like the chances of the new Dr Who, actress Jodie Whittaker who is priced at an extremely cheeky 50/1 to pick up the prize.


8/11 – Kelly Brook
3/1 – Amber from Love Island
3/1 – Suzanne Reid
5/1 – Rachel Riley (defending champion)

12/1 – Katie Price
