Miss USA Nia Sanchez

Clueless On Home State Capital

Fuels 'Carpetbagging' Buzz

breaking news

Miss USA Nia Sanchez Nevada CapitalNia Sanchez is only going to anger pageant fanatics more with this video ... because during a simple radio interview this morning, she couldn't even name the capital of her supposed "home state."

First, some background -- Sanchez won Miss USA after being Miss Nevada, but really she lived most of her life in California and even competed in Miss California three times ... losing each time. 

So this morning on "The Todd Show" on 95.5 WPLJ in NYC ... Sanchez completely whiffed when asked about the capital of Nevada ... and possibly also insulted Carson Daly.

Neither is cool.

Typical "beauty" queen: Thinks her looks will carry her so she can charm and b.s. her way through life and no one will notice, and dumb as rocks.

Aren't they supposed to be intelligent? I mean she's pretty and all... Just sayin.. Oh but let me guess she's going to have a leaked porn video soon and she'll get even more famous. You know because that's how you become rich

People seem to be forgetting this is Miss USA, not Miss America. Huge difference. Miss America pageant is about intelligent young ladies and scholarships...Miss USA, not so much.
