Miss USA Nia Sanchez made a surprise visit to Chateau Nightclub & Rooftop at Paris Las Vegas on Wednesday night to help judge the nightclub’s very first Miss Chateau pageant.

Arriving shortly after 11 p.m., the beauty queen donned a chic black romper and mingled with the excited contestants. Sanchez, Nevada’s first Miss USA, has been busy preparing for the Miss Universe competition that will be held on Jan. 25, 2015, in Doral, Fla.

Contestants strutted on the catwalk on the club’s rooftop, which offers panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip. Contestants were judged on their confidence, poise and beauty during the runway walk contest. In the end, 25-year-old Brittany McGowan was crowned as the very first Miss Chateau. McGowan sported a fashionable black cocktail dress complete with sky-high heels and captured the judges’ attention with her winning smile.

By winning the title of Miss Chateau, the newly crowned queen will represent the nightclub in the Miss Nevada USA pageant, taking place on Sunday, Nov. 23. In addition, the club will sponsor her entry fee into the competition, a $1,000 value.
