Alicia Machado’s career path can be traced back to the early nineteen eighties, when she participated in the Miss Venezuela beauty pageant, which was hosted and organized by former President of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez. During the competition, Machado impressed the judges with her sparkling and attractive looks, and her convincing speeches. She went on to win the competition, and was named the winner. Later, she entered into show biz, where she appeared in several shows, both for entertainment purposes and as a beauty queen. She even appeared on the television program called Chopped, which was hosted by chef Gary Giampaino.
While some claim that she rose to stardom through her participation in the Miss Venezuela and Chopped shows, it is more likely that her early life story was to become a beauty pageant contestant. The information on the internet about her early life reveals that she was a student at the University of San Carlos in Bolivia, specializing in chemistry. It is possible that she might have studied chemistry at the University of Havana, which is also in Cuba, but that is not confirmed. All the evidence points to her having been a student at the University of San Carlos, which is where she would have gained her Spanish degree.
If Alicia Machado did attend the University of San Carlos, one of the highlights of her academic career would have been her involvement in Hugo Chavez’s presidential campaign. The two worked together, and during the campaign, Chavez gave her the presidential award for best contestant. However, there are reports that the timing of the award was not right, since runoff elections were about to take place. Therefore, it is highly doubtful that she would have been able to seize the opportunity to become a celebrity by winning the popular vote.
The fact remains that she is an athlete, which is evident from her appearance on the Miss Venezuela cover. This means that her athletic ability is as good as her beauty, and this should give her confidence. She has proven that she has the physical ability to compete in the Miss Universe and the Miss World titles. She has also won two boxing tournaments, so her fighting skills are also at the very top of the list. Her time in the Miss World competition was tarnished by the controversy that arose over her having posed nude for the Spanish magazine, Le Figaro. However, she has been named to the cover of the magazine’s next issue, due to her winning performance in the Miss World competition.
