Mallory is a realist and she answered the criticism in a positive and direct manner. She explained that people who are not preparing for a beauty competition tend to let down on the high pressure for physical perfection. She went further to say that she is “human” and is just living her life normal. So what if she wasn’t watching every single calorie.
She’s a native of Alabama
Mallory has held multiple beauty titles in the state of New York, but this isn’t where she was born and raised. She is from Opelika, Alabama, but he was actually born in Tennessee. She was raised in Alabama and received her education there. She relocated to Brooklyn in 2008 to pursue her career as a beauty queen, where she was highly successful.
