Many would think after all the hard work put into winning a pageant that the aftermath would be all glitz and glam, but that isn't the case for newly crowned Miss USA Nia Sanchez. She is currently being accused of cheating to win the crown.
This is the picture on Instagram she posted after winning:

Emirates 24/7 reported that Sanchez faked her Nevada residency in order to avoid stiffer competition in her home state of California.
With as heavy competition that there always is in California for the Miss USA pageant, it's understandable that someone would want to stay away from that state. However, Sanchez considers Nevada to be her home state. She told FOX News in a recent interview, "[Las Vegas] is my home. I have a house there with a friend."
No other news on this has surfaced, but there is bound to be more to come from this scandal and hopefully our Miss USA will remain around for the entire year.
