Miss USA Nia Sanchez

Learns Name of Nevada Capital ...

Even Finds It On a Map

7/17/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miss USA Nia Sanchez ... who famously couldn't name the capital city of Nevada -- even though she competed as Miss Nevada -- paid her first official visit Wednesday to, um, that place.

The brunette beauty traveled to Carson City to meet with Mayor Bob Crowell … who diplomatically neglected to mention Nia's faux pas.

Sanchez caught some heat for competing in Miss NV, even though she grew up in Cali -- classic carpetbaggery -- and she only made matters worse when she wasn't able to name Nevada's capital.

Sources close to Nia tell us … she purposely made Carson City her first stop on her Nevada apology homecoming tour … since winning the Miss USA crown last month.

Women that look that good don't need brains. She'll marry a rich guy, pop out a couple kids and be on easy street rest of her life.

I'm okay with having her replace Selena Gomez as the token Mexican. At least she doesn't have a compressed face. Truth.

Great way to show the young girls of America that you don't have to have a single brain cell as long as your pretty. Unbelievable that they would choose this dumbass, who represented a state she didn't know the first thing about, to represent the entire country. Ridiculous in the highest form.
