Viral Video of the Day: Miss Utah Marissa Powell’s Flub
Miss Teen South Carolina has a new challenger! At the Miss USA pageant last night, Miss Utah Marissa Powell responded to a question about gender-based income inequality in America with a rather strange fumbling answer, proclaiming the need to “create education better.” Immediately after her response was broadcast, #MissUtah soared up to the leading trending topic on Twitter, accompanied by jokes mocking the 21-year-old’s incoherence. While amusing, her answer wasn’t nearly as disturbing as Miss Alabama Mary-Margaret McCord’s defense of the recently leaked NSA PRISM surveillance program, asserting that she would rather have her phone messages tracked than feel unsafe.
in a hilarious way she kind of answered the question.
too many girls aspire to be this. because of things like ‘miss world’ etc…
i dont get why there isn’t a ‘mr world’…
it just perpetuates the stereotype of girly girls being inferior. just because you’re girly doesn’t mean you are any less intelligent… but in this case, she simply didn’t have another choice of vocation… did she?
