Well the first-ever transgender contestant to compete in the Miss Universe Canada pageant has sadly lost her bid to win the title. Thats right, this miss universe contestant was born a male.

Jenna ( or is it Jack) Talackova, 23, competed with 61 contestants Saturday night. She was among the final 12 contestants.

Talackova, who was born a male, underwent a sex change four years ago. The Vancouver, British Columbia, native was initially denied entry to Canada's pageant because she was not a natural-born female. Donald Trump, who runs the Miss Universe Organization, subsequently overruled that decision.

The 6-foot-1 (1.8-meter-1 centimeter) blond beauty strutted the runway and competed in the bikini and formal wear contests.

The winner advances to the international Miss Universe competition in December.

  1. BORNAWOMAN says:

    Good. It's called MISS for a reason; DNA speaks louder than surgery. If it didn't matter what gender you were then it would be the General Gender Universe competition. Frankly I'm pissed that HE made it that far.
