Beauty pageant history was made Sunday night when Nia Sanchez was crowned Miss USA 2014. It was the first time a woman from Nevada won the title. After she beat 50 beautiful contestants from around the nation, people have been scrambling to find out more information about this year’s winner.
Even though this Miss USA pageant has been around since 1952, no one from the state of Nevada has claimed the crown before. Last year’s winner, Erin Brady, represented from Connecticut, and 2012’s winner Olivia Culpo, who ultimately won Miss Universe, hailed from Rhode Island.
