In case you did not spend any time watching the Miss Universe pageant in 2015, you missed the uproar that occurred when Miss Jamaica, Kaci Fennell, was announced as the fourth runner up. Personally, to be announced as even a part of the pageant that celebrates beautiful, intelligent, driven women would be an honor, but let’s face it; we all want to win (notice I say we as if I was involved). The same could be true of Kaci Fennell, the beauty from Jamaica that the entire world (universe?) fell in love with from the start. It was expected that she would take home the crown and the title of Miss Universe, but she did not. In fact, it was Miss Colombia that brought home the crown. She handled her loss with the grace and elegance of a beautiful woman with a lot of class, and the hashtag #MissJamaicaShouldHaveWon went viral (and became very popular). But here are just a few things you did not know about the beauty; things you probably do want to know.
She has Short Hair…
…and she doesn’t care. Many people noticed that the beautiful Miss Jamaica has short hair, but she doesn’t care. She pointed it out and made it out to be just what it is; beauty is not defined by the length of one’s hair.
She’s a Big Fan of God
When she lost, she was very gracious about it. She made the statement that putting God first means that this is just the beginning of the big things that will happen to her in life, and she’s excited about all of that. The Jamaican native made it clear she loves her God and she’s not going anywhere.
She Works and Plays Hard
When you grow up the daughter of a baker, you can’t just ignore the good stuff. Kaci Fennell is not afraid to indulge and eat things most women her age and in her line of work would even bother with, but she’s not. She just makes it a point to work out hard when she’s done eating these things.
