Kate Schneider was crowned Mrs. World 2020 following the resignation of the original winner Caroline Jurie after a bizarre on-stage bust-up at a beauty pageant in Sri Lanka.
An Irish woman has been crowned the new Mrs. World after the reigning titleholder resigned following a bizarre on-stage fracas that saw her attempt to pull the crown off the head of the winner of the Mrs. Sri Lanka beauty pageant. Kate Schneider, who initially finished as the first runner-up in the beauty pageant for married women, was crowned the winner after organizers confirmed that original winner Caroline Jurie had resigned.
Schneider, who is a practising registered dietician, said that she is a lifelong advocate for health, wellness, and nutrition, and said that children’s health is her area of expertise.
She plans to combine her Mrs. World crown with her background in nutrition to “make the most positive impact for children’s health worldwide”.
Schneider is also a huge animal lover and regularly donates to animal shelters along with her husband Jimmy.
The 29-year-old was Mrs. New York America 2019 and Mrs. Ireland World 2019/2020.
