We’ve got these new shots of Jenna Talackova, the transgendered Miss Universe hopeful, as she strutted her stuff in the Miss Universe Canada pageant in Toronto Thursday.
Born Walter Talackova, the Miss Universe hopeful was re-admitted into the pageant by owner Donald Trump after a brief disqualification in March.

She previously told Barbara Walters about her gender reassignment surgery four years ago: “As soon as I was conscious, I just always knew that I was not what they were saying.
“It wasn’t right,” the 23-year-old said about her time as a male, adding “I thought that I was in the wrong body.”

Jenna told Walters the surgery was terribly painful, but being comfortable with her gender identity helped soothe any physical misery resulting from the procedure.
“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,” Jenna told Walters.
