Miss Utah Offers Painful Answer at Last Night's 'Miss USA Pageant': VIDEO

Utah

Marissa Powell, Miss Utah, was asked about the income disparity between men and women at the Miss USA pageant last night and instead of answering the question properly she created a viral video the likes of which hasn't been seen since Miss Teen South Carolina Caitlin Upton in 2007. Congratulations.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Does anyone remember the winner the year Ms. Teen SC spoke up? Or who was the gold medal winner when Ms. Not Impressed acted snitty during the Olympics?

    Notoriety is the name of the game.

  2. As for Ms. Utah, I guess all the other wives had better things to do this weekend besides compete.

  7. I think she was just nervous. Nobody can beat Miss Teen SC for sheer lack of brain cells.

  10. Should have asked her what how far she'd go in an hour if driving at 80MPH. That seems to stump Utah women as well. (And that video even comes up as recommended at the end.)

  11. Yes, if there is anyone who wonders why men get paid more, please send them the link to this video.

  12. The Miss America pageant provides scholarships, while the Miss USA pageant provides modeling contracts. Just sayin'.

  13. Corollary to she's the answer, how may capable chicks get passed over for appearances by unreconstructed males or, FSM forbid, us?

  14. oh to create education better!

  15. "The current wage disparity between the sexes is a result of a complex series of socio-economic forces. Beginning with the patriarchal system that historically gave preferential treatment to men, this inequality has continued to reflect a male-dominated work environment. That wage inequality has not been a priority of the unions also reflects the historic male dominance in the leadership of that organization. Even in the 2011 Supreme Court case of WalMart versus Betty Dukes, in a narrow 5 - 4 decision that reflects the make-up of the Court itself - we see that the struggle for equal wage parity is still an issue that has no easy resolutions. One can only hope that as as more women rise to occupy more corporate executive positions, this inequality may finally be ameliorated."

    How hard was that to answer, Miss Utah?

  17. Female employees in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male colleagues, records show.

    According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).

  18. Thank you, Rik, for proving the uselessness of some statistics.

    I'm certain that the positions that men occupy are probably of greater seniority. After all, white men have been running the country for years, but that will change over time...

  19. The fault here lies with Nene Leakes.

    How dare she ask the contestant to think that hard with all those statistics?

    A better question would have been something along the lines of "Miss Utah, blink once for 'Yes', two for 'No' - do you think women who work outside the home should be paid as much as men?".

    Wait, still too complicated...

    "Miss Utah, can you smile and squeeze your boobies together at the same time?"

    "Yay!" (followed by excited hand clapping).

  20. Reminds me of a funny TV commercial many years ago where the beauty pageant contestant was asked "What would you do to help save the future of the planet" and the dingbat answered "Which planet?" LOL

  21. and frankly, who cares what Miss Spaceshot thinks? This is a beauty contest not a job interview.

  22. I believe every American deserves a tree, a bush, or a shrub.

  23. Based on the headline, I was expecting someone hurtful like Carrie Prejean. What we got was more like Sarah Palin, but even less articulate.

  24. The poor thing. She had no idea what hit her. But notice she kept her poise all throughout. Props for not plutzing.

  25. I COULD NOT CONCENTRATE ON WHAT Miss Utah SAID BECAUSE OF THE DISTRACTION OF QUESTIONER, Nene Leakes. I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY DARK-SKINNED Afrocentric blacks THINK WEARING BLOND HAIR IS ATTRACTIVE. NEGRO FEMALES NEED TO STOP COMPARING THEIR PHYSICAL FEATURES TO CAUCASIAN FEMALES. Ms. Leakes IS F--KED-UP!, BEYOND REPAIR.
