Miss Teen South Carolina 2007 is still the reigning queen of WTF answers, but Miss Utah, Marissa Powell, tried to come for her crown at last night’s Miss USA pageant in Las Vegas. During the Q&A part of the finals, judge NeNe Leakes asked Miss Utah this question:
“A recent report shows that in 40 percent of American families with children, women are the primary earners, yet they continue to earn less than men. What does this say about society?”
If I was on stage in front of thousands of people, knew that millions more eyeballs were watching me on TV and had thirty layers of paint on my face and six layers of clay on my eyebrows, I wouldn’t be able to spit out any words since it would be impossible with barf coming out of my mouth and the nervous shits coming out of my ass. So Miss Utah gave a better answer than I would’ve given, but then again, ho trained years for this shit . I’ve gotten spam emails from Russian beauties that were more coherent than Miss Utah’s answer. Miss Utah said (via Deadspin):
“I think we can relate this back to education, and how we are … continuing to try to strive to [pause] figure out how to create jobs right now. That is the biggest problem. And I think, especially the men are … um … seen as the leaders of this, and so we need to try to figure out how to create education better so we can solve this problem. Thank you.”
NAILED IT! You can practically see her brain break in two during that pause. If you stare at her eyes, you can see the error 500 error in her pupils. I bet Ryan Lochte’s her coach.
But whatever, even though Miss Utah gave the dumbest answer of the night, she still won because her eyebrow situation was like no other and she can easily work as an Alyssa Edwards impersonator. I hope Miss Utah uses her eyebrow situation knowledge to create brow education better.
Here’s a few pictures from last night’s pageant including pictures of Miss Connecticut who won.
