    Mrs. Tennessee was bitten by a rattlesnake Sunday on the way to rehearsals for the Mrs. America pageant — and was treated on the scene by one of her competitors for the crown, registered nurse Mrs. Idaho, according to The Tennessean newspaper.

    Christina Ryan, 28, was leaving a breakfast at the Loews Ventana Canyon Hotel in Tucson, Ariz., when the wily serpent — coiled at the bottom of some concrete steps — struck, biting her on the foot.

    Luckily, Mrs. Idaho — registered nurse Lauralyn Salinas — was with her and was able to extract the snake’s fang from Ryan’s skin, The Tennessean reported.

    “I guess he bit me and let go,” Ryan told the paper. “I ran up the stairs and became totally hysterical … It hurt worse than childbirth.”
    Paramedics were on the scene in less than five minutes, according to The Tennessean.

    Ryan, an event planner with an 18-month-old daughter, spent the night in the intensive care unit at Tuscon Medical Center, where she received about 10 vials of anti-venom medication and was watched closely, the newspaper reported.
