Melbourne, Feb 19 (ANI): Kylie Grigg, a 37-year-old woman whose last relationship was with a man nine years her junior, has been crowned Miss Cougar Brisbane.
The State Government employee, who was the crowd favourite at the Brisbane Cougar Convention, said she wasn't expecting the award.
"I wasn't expecting this at all," the Courier Mail quoted her as saying.
She added: "I was just going out for a night with the girls. I was the designated driver so I wasn't even drinking."
Grigg mentioned that she had no plans to tell her colleagues working in road safety, but they have come to know.
She said: "I wasn't going to say anything at work but I told one person and now it's going to be in the next newsletter.
"I used to get offended by the term 'cougar' because I thought it was a little bit degrading to women but now I'm more relaxed about it."
Speaking of younger men, she said: "It's just that they make it known that you're desirable to them, whereas the older men seem to be going for the younger woman."
Grigg has won free accommodation during the Cougar Resort Weekend at Marcoola on the Sunshine Coast in June.
She will now compete against title holders from Sydney and Melbourne for Miss Cougar Australia. (ANI)
