Lake Las Vegas Royalty: Resident Ashley Tesoro Preps for Mrs. Universe International Competition

From actress to now beauty queen, long-time Lake Las Vegas resident Ashley Tesoro will compete for the crown at Mrs. Universe International next summer.

Ashley walked the stage and took her first title in 2020 when she was named Mrs. Nevada-America in at the state’s competition for Nevada’s married women. Shortly after her win, she took to the stage again and was crowned Mrs. Nevada International 2022.

After her 2022 title, Ashley was approached by the Mrs. Universe International competition and was asked to compete at the prestigious global pageant. She was selected to represent Nevada on the world stage as Mrs. Nevada Universe 2023 at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.

In addition to her titles, Ashley also competed in the Mrs. America finale in 2020 and placed in the final group of competitors. Most recently, she represented Nevada and made the finals in the Mrs. International pageant last July with 50 other women from around the world.

The former Saved by the Bell and The Bold and Beautiful actress entered the pageant world when she was just six years old. Her first major win was at nine years old when she took the title of Little Miss California.

“Competing in pageants has opened so many doors for me. I have been blessed with opportunities and now have a platform to spread awareness about important issues and help those most vulnerable in our community,” she said.

Ashley first moved from Los Angeles to Lake Las Vegas 17 years ago. She, her husband Anthony and their three children now reside in the SouthShore community at Lake Las Vegas.

“Lake Las Vegas holds a special place in my heart. I have been able to watch my family grow over the years while living in a community that has been so supportive in everything I do,” Ashley said. “I love being able to connect with so many people, especially those who have supported me in my journey through all of my competitions.”
