Transgender Beauty Queen

After all the hoopla to compete, transgender beauty queen Jenna Talackova LOST the title of Miss Universe Canada ... but DID manage to win something else -- Miss Congeniality.

Talackova took the stage Saturday night in Toronto -- along with 61 other Canadian women -- as the first transgender to compete in the Miss Universe beauty competition ... but was axed after the top 12.

If you recall ... the 23-year-old fought tooth and nail just to be allowed in the competition after it was discovered she was not a "natural born female" and underwent a sex-change operation 4 years ago.

Although she didn't make it past the semi-finals, Talackova took home a different prize ... she was one of four women to be named Miss Congeniality.

The real crown went to 26-year old Sahar Biniaz.

There's always next year.

If she was born a girl. She would be considered very pretty. I can't believe that was once a guy. Her face and body are fantastic looking. His, whatever.

Sympathy prize......they just didn't want it to seem she/he was being left out completely. Personally, Im glad a "real" woman won.

LOL Jay, I actually LOVE your banjo dueling scene! I'd ask for an autograph, but you'd probably just look away angrily!

Yes, your response to my apology sounds like that of a very educated person. I shouldn't have called you a redneck because I was stereotyping and that was stupid of me, for that I apologize. But you're still an ignorant bastard who has wasted enough of my time. I don't even know why I'm dignifying your last response with an answer because it doesn't even deserve one. Done this this disagreement, have a nice life you close minded fool.

Of course he won something. That was decided the moment they succumbed to their sponsors being bullied.
