While Nevada did well in the early years of the Miss USA pageant, they only placed once from 1987 to 2000. This streak was broken by Gina Giacinto's finalist placing in Miss USA 2001.
In 2014 Nia Sanchez of Las Vegas became the first Miss USA ever from the state of Nevada, she represented the USA in the Miss Universe 2014 competition on January 25, 2015 and placed 1st runner-up.
