As we all know beauty pageants aren’t only about beauty. The contestants usually have to show some kind of talent as well as good manners, and sometimes, just sometimes, brains. However, that apparently isn’t the case with Miss USA.
The 24 year old Nia Sanchez was born in California, and shortly after moving to Nevada, US, she won the Miss Nevada pageant and later became Miss USA 2014. She has practiced ballet, studied jazz and got a black belt in taekwondo. She also served on several missions in Mexico and visited Kenya. But none of the above mentioned can compare to the fact that she doesn’t know the capital city of Nevada. During a recent quiz on The Todd Show she was asked about the name of the capital and after stuttering and muttering inarticulately she answered “Oh, my Gosh!” Shortly after her response the radio host politely reminded her that the right answer was actually Carson City.
Let’s hope she doesn’t have to answer any capital-related questions in the Miss Universe 2014 contest.
