An epic fail of monumental proportions took place on Sunday night during the 2013 Miss USA pageant, which probably doesn’t come as a shocker to anyone.
During the questions round of the pageant, Miss Utah, Marissa Powell, was asked about women’s inequality in the workplace. Seemingly easy stuff, right? Apparently not for the 21-year-old. What followed next was quite possibly the most WTF-moment in live TV history since Clint Eastwood had a 10-minute conversation with an empty chair.
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?
Miss Utah: 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 umm, seen as the leaders of this and so we need to try and figure out how to create education better so we can solve this problem.
Utah: They may not make ‘em smart, but at least they make ‘em pretty!
