THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — [UPDATE The Miss Universe Canada pageant is over. She made it to the top 12. Congrats to Jenna. More below.]
While Jenna Talackova’s story is familiar to everyone, rivals now are complaining the spotlight is on Jenna, not them. These comments came up during an intermission on Thursday during the pageant.
On the upside, pageant organizers report the event has drawn twice as much media attention as last year. Judges say they’re remaining impartial, and one states he doesn’t know the identity of the transgender contestant.
UPDATE – May 19, 2012:
TORONTO (AP) — The first-ever transgender contestant to compete in the Miss Universe Canada pageant strutted the runway Saturday night, making it to the penultimate round before losing her bid to win the title. Jenna Talackova, 23, competed with 61 contestants and was among the final 12 contestants before failing to make the final five in the glitzy pageant. Sahar Biniaz, 26, claimed the crown and advances to the international Miss Universe competition in December.
Lets give a round of applause to Jenna Talackova!
