If you’re watching the episodes each week you’ve undoubtedly heard a lot about Alayah in episode 3 (aired 1/20/2020). According to her bio on the show’s website Alayah is a orthodontist assistant from San Antonio, Texas. Her last name is Benavidez, which means “son/servant of God.”
Alayah means “exalted, sublime; to ascend; joyful”. Alayah is an alternate spelling of Alaia (Arabic, Hebrew, Basque).
As a Benavidez, Alayah can expect to live well into her 60s before she’s smells her last rose. Ancestry.com says those with the last name of Benavidez in the USA have a lifespan of upper 60s. Alayah has anywhere from 40 to 45 years left on this earth.
Her full name is Alayah Nicole Benavidez.
She attended UT-San Antonio.
She opened an online boutique called Three Bees Boutique.
She was crowned Miss Texas 2019 back in January of that year. Here’ the winning moment…
She then competed in Miss USA pageant, where she did not make the top 15. Fellow Bachelor contestant Victoria Paul did make the top 15, but not the top 10.
(Victoria P. had open heart surgery as a baby, and is the first in her family to graduate college. She either has or wants to have a Master’s Degree in nursing.)
According to her bio on the Miss USA website, Alayah wants to become a published author.
Alayah has overcome dyslexia as a student.
She’s a dog lover, and has a 110-pound doberman pinscher named Titan, who she likes to run with, as shown here in her Instagram post.
