Bettie Page was an American model and actress who gained fame in the 1950s for her pin-up photographs, which were often risqué and provocative. Born in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1923, Page was the second of six children. Her childhood was marked by poverty and hardship; she later described her father as abusive.
Despite these difficulties, Page was a talented student and showed an early interest in acting and modeling. After high school, she moved to New York City and began working as a secretary, but quickly transitioned into modeling. Her striking looks and voluptuous figure quickly caught the attention of photographers, and she soon became a popular model for men's magazines and pin-up calendars.
Page's career peaked in the mid-1950s when she became the most photographed model in the country. Her images, which often featured her in revealing lingerie and swimwear, were controversial at the time but also incredibly popular. Page was also known for her trademark bangs and dark hair, which became a popular hairstyle among women during the era.
Despite her success as a model, Page's personal life was tumultuous. She married three times and struggled with mental illness and substance abuse. She retired from modeling in 1957 and moved to Florida, where she briefly worked as a Christian missionary. She later moved back to California and became involved in the 1960s counterculture, performing in underground films and working as a waitress.
Page's popularity experienced a resurgence in the 1980s when a new generation rediscovered her photographs. She was the subject of several books and documentaries, and her image was featured on t-shirts, posters, and other merchandise. However, Page was notoriously reclusive during this time and rarely granted interviews or public appearances.
Page experienced several personal setbacks in her later years, including financial struggles and legal battles over the rights to her image. She also experienced health problems, including a heart attack and pneumonia. She passed away in 2008 at the age of 85.
Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.
