Why Is Miss Congeniality Day On April 25? Well, It’s The Perfect Date
It’s not too hot, it’s not too cold, and all you need is a light jacket. Yes, April 25 is the perfect date to sit down on your couch and watch Sandra Bullock in Miss Congeniality.
The movie got its own internet holiday thanks to a hilarious scene featuring Miss Rhode Island. Cheryl, played by Heather Burns, is asked by Mr. William Shatner to describe her perfect date. The beauty pageant contestant doesn’t quite understand the question but still gives an answer that all of us can agree with: April 25th is the perfect date.

The scene was so funny (apparently) that people are still laughing at it 14 years after the movies release.
Miss Congeniality spawned its own holiday, a terrible sequel, and there are rumors floating around that Sandra Bullock is hoping to turn the movie into a TV show.
An insider said: “Sandra loved her Miss Congeniality FBI agent character Gracie Hart…so much that for years she has continued to keep up friendships with FBI agents she met while researching it … Sandra loves that real FBI agents, particularly female ones, continue to respond to and write her letters about both Miss Congeniality and The Heat … Sandra just feels like its time to bring this story to a new generation!”
The rumor hasn’t been confirmed yet but judging by the reaction to “Miss Congeniality Day” on Twitter… well, the show would probably be a hit.
