Alicia Machado said she traveled the world after her win, which caused her to gain about 25 pounds, but it was nothing to be ashamed of until Trump and the media of the time made fun of her weight for that she in the interview she gave her retractors a strong message, assuring that she would never justify what she had experienced, whether she had gained a lot or a little, because among the comments she received from the tycoon, were “Miss Piggy or Miss Housekeeping”.
Likewise, the former Miss Venezuela shared how it came about that Trump walked into the gym where she wanted to work out, unaware that it was going to run an entire media campaign focusing on the Venezuelan’s weight.

The day she showed up to start the routine, there were already more than 80 media outlets from around the world as well as former President Donald Trump, a situation that so overwhelmed her that she left the room where where she was, didn’t want to leave, but had to show her face due to media pressure.
