    Default Miss Cougar USA Crowned in California

    In one of the most anticipated pageants of the year, the nation's finest cougars gathered in Palo Alto, CA, to determine who would be crowned Miss Cougar USA. It was a cat-battle for the ages.

    Well ok, not really. The event was sponsored by The Society of Single Professionals and looks like it turned more into a seminar of "how to have a healthy relationship with a young man" than a mob of older women looking for fresh meat.

    There was of course a Cougar Ball, where over a hundred cubs (younger men) arrived to dance and fall prey to the single women. But according to eyewitness reports, the men outnumbered the women 5 to 1. It makes you wonder who exactly was being hunted.

    One such bystander, who was staying at the hotel the event was taking place at, was surprised by how many cubs there were. "I've never seen so many useless 20-year-olds in my life," he said. "This is a uniquely American phenomenon."

    And the winner of this American phenomenon? Gloria Navarro, 42, a suburban management consultant from Redwood City. "It's a new beginning for me," she said. Navarro recently divorced from her husband of 20 years and is looking to change her life.



    "I went from soccer mom with short hair, flat-heeled shoes and fanny packs to cougar. I believe every woman has a cougar in them - someone who doesn't need a man for anything other than companionship."

    =================

    The first Miss Cougar America did not cry, muss her mascara, carry a bouquet of roses or wear a crown.

    Miss Cougar America, Gloria Navarro, 42, of Redwood City, proudly accepted her title before more than 200 guests, most of them men in their 20s, 30s and 40s, at Dinah's Hotel in Palo Alto on Friday. She said she was proud to represent a new breed of woman: empowered, secure and willing to break boundaries.

    "It's a new beginning for me," said the suburban management consultant, married for 20 years, recently divorced and ready for something - or someone - new. "I went from soccer mom with short hair, flat-heeled shoes and fanny packs to cougar. I believe every woman has a cougar in them - someone who doesn't need a man for anything other than companionship."

    The contest was part of the first-ever National Cougar Convention produced by Rich Gosse and the Society of Professional Singles, billed as the largest singles organization in the world. The 250 available tickets sold out two days before the event.

    The evening, which included a keynote address by Internet radio host and author Francesca Gentille and her boyfriend, Tahil Gesyuk, 14 years younger, drew a racially diverse crowd of men and women who came from as near as Stanford University and as far as London, looking for love, or at least an adventure.

    The party included three hours of dancing, drinks and booths filled with items ranging from "Cougar Kits" to "Cougar kitty" T-shirts for $20 sold by Becky Aguilar of Mountain View, recently divorced and looking for fun, but not necessarily younger men, she said.

    Miss Cougar America was selected by a vote of the men in attendance.

    Watching from a distance was hotel guest Mark Friedman, 45, of Boston, in town for a wedding.

    "I've never seen so many useless 20-year-olds in my life," he said. "This is a uniquely American phenomenon."

    Apparently not. Two female guests, Birgita Cameron and Rita Sangha, flew in from London for the event. Sangha runs a Web site for women who are attracted to young men and Cameron was a runner-up in the Miss Cougar America contest.

    Sandy Miller, 35, a former administrative assistant from San Jose, and Jenny Lane, 41, a dog sitter from Cupertino, had mixed feelings about the party.

    They had gone to a professional singles mixer in San Francisco earlier this year sponsored by the Society of Professional Singles and were on Gosse's mailing list and decided to give the Cougar Convention a try.

    "We're getting walked past by guys going for women in their 60s," Lane said.

    "I guess we should have known," Miller said. "It's a little like prom without a date, or a bad wedding."

    Ricky Rivas, 24, a radio ad salesman from the South Bay, was more prosaic.

    "Older women and younger men? It doesn't matter nowadays - we're past that barrier. It matters what you bring to the table," he said. "Look at Sotomayor, Condoleezza Rice, Hillary Clinton, pushing the boundaries in the working world. The Bay Area is the perfect place for this. The Bay Area has lots of transplants, people looking for the perfect storm of opportunities, if you will. Women are more empowered here."

    Yikes. #1. That's the best of the lot?
    Yikes #2. We're exactly the same age. What does that make me, a mountain goat? In any case, I'm beginning to understand the dirty old man thing.

    She's 42? She looks 52 easily. Seriously, my wife is 41 and looks a million times better than her and can pass for 28 no problem. I've seen lots of women older than her who look so much better...must have been slim pickins at that pageant.

    I don't get it. If you don't need a man for anything other than "companionship", which could mean different things to different people, why do you have to travel somewhere to find it?

    Anytime I hear the word "empowerment", it always comes across as being something closer to "validation". "Hey, look at me, I'm empowered. Hey, did you notice I'm empowered? And confident?"

    But hey, to each his or her own.

    wow...really?

    I imagine all the truly super attractive women in this age group had too much class to hop into this little contest.

    I think we all know some absolutely stunning women in their late 30s through early 50s who have poise, great legs, nice bodies, brains, grace and look sexy as hell in a power suit!

    You know...for all the talk about lingerie and whatnot, there's A LOT to be said for a sexy older lady in a power suit!
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Cougars rock!! My friends bought me a shirt for Xmas that says "Cougar Bait" on the front. Works like a charm (sometimes). Cougars are like the theory of low hanging fruit, just plain easier to get and still fun to eat.
