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.

I learned all state capitals in 5th grade, so apparently she is NOT smarter than a fifth grader

What they should ask her is how many states have Las Vegas in them?... lol. Even one is the wrong answer.

No wonder... She is a product of the California school system. Just like other Californians move to Nevada and try to ruin our state.

Doesn't mean anything. I'm sure that a lot of the shallow pageant bimbos who pray to the makeup Gods here in New York wouldn't have a clue that Albany is the State capital.

I'm ok with adults not remembering all of the capitals. But as a pageant contestant not knowing the capital of the state you are representing is really really bad! To bad that wasn't the question she had to answer on stage. That would have been awesome!
