The Wonderful World Of Beauty Pagents

From Norm of the LVRJ:
The Miss Nevada USA organization is under fire again, days after celebrating its first Miss USA title win.
Nia Sanchez, who won Miss Nevada USA in January as Miss South Las Vegas, on June 8 became the first Nevada representive to win the Miss USA pageant in Baton Rouge, La.
Today she’s under scrutiny over whether she fulfilled the six-month residency requirement. Sanchez is dismissing a FoxNews.com report that she might have faked her residency to compete after years on the California pageant circuit.
The Review-Journal searched various public record databases and only found two addresses for Sanchez, both in California.
Sanchez, 24, was quoted last week as saying “(Las Vegas) is my home. I have a house there with a friend.’’
I received a screen grab via email Saturday of a tweet sent Jan. 12, the night Sanchez won the Nevada title. Sent by former Miss Arizona USA Alicia-Monique Blanco, it read: “OMG My roomie just won Miss Nevada USA!!! Miss USA here we come!”
Blanco was living in the Los Angeles area at the time.
There’s no denying the growing evidence that Nevada has become a magnet for pageant hoppers who see an easier path than facing larger talent pools in more populated states.
To some Nevadans, that’s the definition of carpetbaggers, even though it’s legal in many state pageants as long as residency requirements are met.
The day after the 2014 pageant at Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall at UNLV, I received an email from a disgruntled Las Vegas pageant follower. She wrote: “California license plates out-numbered Nevada’s in the parking lot. The ‘hoppers’ have taken over.”
An investigation by the Review-Journal discovered that nearly half of the 33 contestants in the 2014 pageant field came from out-of-state pageants.
And today, the supposed resident of Nevada, could not name the capitol of Nevada.  (Carson City)
Just a bunch of bimbos.
