Miss USA 2014 Nia Sanchez fueled speculation that she is a beauty pageant carpetbagger when she could not name the capital of her (supposed) home state.
The former Miss Nevada was on the morning radio program The Todd Show Monday when the show’s host asked her to name the capital of the Silver State.
“Oh oh ahhh, ummm, oh my gosh,” she stammered before being rescued by the show’s host, who gave her the admittedly tricky answer, “Carson City.”
“Thank you, I was gonna say that, I was like, that one DJ host on MTV, back in the day, his name, that’s how I always remembered it,” she said.
Carson Daly could not be reached for comment as of press time.
Nia Sanchez, 25, met the residency requirements in order to compete for the Miss Nevada crown, although it's unclear how long she's lived there.
