Adair Reese wins Mrs. Congeniality at Mrs. America pageant in Las Vegas
Mrs. Nebraska Adair Reese of Grant, Nebraska, returned home from the Mrs. America pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada, with the Mrs. Congeniality award.
The award was determined by a vote among Reese’s fellow 51 contestants, as to who they felt was the most congenial, or friendliest.
Reese said as much as she thinks it would be an honor to be Mrs. America, she feels it’s just as much of an honor to be named Mrs. Congeniality.
“There are five judges voting for Mrs. America, but 51 girls voting for Mrs. Congeniality,” she said.
The award was presented at the Mrs. America finals held at Westgate Resort and Casino on Saturday, Aug. 24, after a week of activities and competition.
Reese flew to Las Vegas on Friday, Aug. 16, with three suitcases and a carry-on totaling nearly 100 pounds. She shipped 37 pounds of clothing before her departure. The week-long event consisted of a full schedule requiring several gowns and cocktail dresses.
