It has finally been revealed that Walter Page Talackova is Jenna Talackova, the transgender beauty queen who was recently reinstated as Miss Universe Canada. Read her biography and see her photo here.
A ton of controversy has followed this beauty queen after she made international news for being disqualified from the pageant for lying about her natural gender. After much debate and criticism, the Trump organization released a statement saying that pageant rules had ‘been modernized to ensure this type of issue does not occur again,” and Jenna was allowed to participate in the Miss Universe pageant. I think ratings will be up this year as curiosity about this woman is undeniable. Trump is a wise businessman, and this was well played if you ask me.
Jenna Talackova was born as Walter Page Talackova, and the Daily Mail has a picture of Walter in 8th grade. Honestly, she was always very feminine and beautiful. She has been living as a woman for many years, and says she has always identified herself as a woman. Walter became Jenna and had gender reassignment surgery when she was just 19 years old. She has an upcoming interview with Barbara Walters on ABC’s 20/20 tonight in which she told her,
“As soon as I was conscious, I just always knew that I was not what they were saying. It wasn’t right. I thought that I was in the wrong body…It was terribly painful, but seeing something on your body for that long and not being able to look at myself in the mirror because I couldn’t stand seeing the other part, it was actually very rewarding, too.”
She now hopes that her story helps other transgender people and wants to be an advocate for them.
She is absolutely stunning and even after taking a long hard look at her bikini photos and video, I would never suspect that she was born a male. I wish her the best in the competition, I am sure we will be hearing a lot about her in the future.
