The Mexican girl, Miss Rose Nanez was weighed 54 over 343 kilograms at the age of 23. She lived at Flinders Street, Sydney. Rose was not obese because of overeating but of overworking her pituitary gland. In 1938, the PIX magazine visited Miss Rose Nanez and documented her private life. Miss Rose broke many beds, and she was banned from commuting and staying in the hotels at that time. She wanted to transfer to America.
Rose Nanez has broken many beds, the latest at a Maitland (N.S.W.) hotel. A specially enlarged bed was required on the ship from America. Fattest of all the Fattest Ladies on Earth, Rose is 8 feet “around the equator.” Rose Nanez is keen-witted and by temperament, jolly, doesn’t worry about her size, laughs and grows fatter. Her hobby is amateur photography.
