Miss Chateau USA Brittany McGowan and Miss Clark County Teen USA Geovanna Hilton were crowned Miss Nevada USA 2015 and Miss Nevada Teen USA 2015.
The two new beauty queens were crowned by the previous titleholders, Miss Nevada USA 2014 Nia Sanchez, who was crowned Miss USA 2014, and Miss Nevada Teen USA 2014, Alexa Taylor. The pageant featured more than 40 contestants who competed in swimsuit, evening gown and interview. In the end, McGowan and Hilton were the judges’ picks.
The Miss Nevada USA and Miss Nevada Teen USA pageants serve as official preliminary competitions to the country’s renowned pageant system, the Miss Universe Organization, owned by Donald Trump. With an annual pageant held in January, two new titleholders are chosen to represent the great state of Nevada. Executive state director, Shanna Moakler, brings her experience as a TV star and former Miss USA to Nevada. Since Moakler joined the Miss Nevada USA organization in 2012, the pageant has received a complete makeover, giving Nevada notoriety with a Top 5 placement and Top 10 placement at Miss USA. Most recently, Miss Nevada USA 2014, Nia Sanchez, was crowned Nevada’s first ever Miss USA.
