Beauty pageants can be pretty tough. Not only do these women have to be beautiful and wear sparkly clothes, but they also have to have coherent opinions about the world on top of it all! It's no wonder so many fumble, especially on the "voicing your opinions" part.

Miss USA Miss Utah Melissa Powell

This year's winner for "worst pageant answer" goes to Miss USA contestant Marissa Powell a.k.a Miss Utah, who was asked this question by celebrity judge Nene Leakes:

"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?"

This was Miss Utah's response, word for word:

"I think we can relate this back to education, and how we are … continuing to try to strive to [long 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."

...What? Did any of that make sense? I've been sitting here trying to figure out where she was going with this. Something about if education were better, there'd be more jobs? Furthermore, men are the leaders of...education? Is that really what she said? That still doesn't really get to the root of the problem. In her defense however, it is true that we must figure out how to "create education better." In fact, she is a perfect example of this.

    Her response didn't make any sense, and I can only guess what she was TRYING to convey, in answer to the question,... "What does this say about society'?
    I "believe" she was TRYING to say,... " It says we, as a society , lack education. If there was better education and we were all better educated, there would not be the gender prejudice there is against women: and therefore, women would have more jobs if there were any and they would earn the same as men."
    Some people are horse whisperers....Maybe I found my calling. I am a Miss Utah Whisperer! ;-) lol

    But women typically don't make any sense to me. That has nothing to do with why I'm crazy about them.

    All I can say is WOW...Daddy must be proud!
  • Tina 2013/06/28 23:22:27
    You'd think she'd trying to saying something empowering for women and say "no this is wrong!" but no, she talks about education?
  • george 2013/06/27 17:41:53
    Just another pretty face?? Axe her another question.
  • Ramón 2013/06/26 18:46:07
    She had a brain fart, or her dress was sewed on too tight.

    What a disgrace to Utah....
  • jelpmac 2013/06/24 14:55:35
    It lays waste to the constant rant against dumb blondes. You can be ditzy with any color hair.
  • Mo 2013/06/24 10:38:28
    I think she was trying not to say what she really thought.

    If she had any clue about this issue, she would have simply answered "income inequality".
  • Jesse 2013/06/23 18:00:14
    She sounded like Obama without his teleprompter.

    Of course it didn't make any sense. But people are way too cruel. I felt bad for her. Being scrutinized by all those people waiting for you to say something stupid-- I would screw up too.
  • kiara143 2013/06/23 02:48:20
    those 128+ people saying this made sense...lied

    But who cares? no one listens or cares about their answers. What I will remember forever is the look on Guliana's face. priceless.

    She was bad but so was Miss Alabama and she came in second! Yeah, look up our butts as long as you keep us safe! Of course, that's what she had to say, remember when someone had the balls to say they didn't believe in gay marriage? Sure, that went well!
  • Dandydon 2013/06/23 01:16:29

    Just like the real world. All looks, no brains.
  • MyDaydream90 2013/06/22 07:06:59
    She didn't manage to string together a coherent thought, let alone answer the question. She didn't even make up for it in looks either, since the girl holding the microphone looks a lot cuter than she does.

    Eesh...that must have been awkward to listen to. And aren't pageant winners supposed to be pretty? That Miss Utah is kind of weird-looking in the face...She looks better without a big toothy grin. miss utah 2013
  • yogiOK 2013/06/22 05:30:06
    Do you think that she really spent any time really listening to the question? I guess we should only give them questions with answers like 5, blue, or corn dogs? Or maybe Jeopardy style is better for them.

    At least she got a pistachio commercial out of it :o) 18 secs.
  • ☆Sheila☆ Bunny 2013/06/24 12:11:22
    LOL, true. Sadly if she had been coherent she may have gotten many more commercials. Bless her heart. My favorite one so far is Psi's commercial.

    The "Heeeeyyyy crack your nuts now..crackin gangnam style" just cracks me up!
