A boy who became a girl got her wish to compete for title of hottest woman on the planet after Donald Trump said she could compete for Canada’s spot in the Miss Universe pageant.
Trump, who runs the Miss Universe Organization, issued a statement Tuesday wishing Jenna Talackova “the best of luck in her quest for the crown.” The statement came the same day that Talackova and her attorney Gloria Allred urged the organization to clarify its gender requirements.
The organization said it actually made the decision Monday to let the 23-year-old Talackova compete in the 2012 competition to become Canada’s contestant.
The organization said Talackova could enter the pageant “provided she meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, and the standards established by other international competitions.” No further details were provided.
Earlier Tuesday, Talackova and her attorney Gloria Allred urged the organization to clarify its position, and displayed a copy of Talackova’s passport, which lists her as female, as do her birth certificate and driver’s license.
