Miss Utah latest beauty queen to botch answer
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Miss Utah Marissa Powell is the latest beauty queen to trip on national television, not over her gown, but during the interview segment.
Asked about income inequality at the Miss USA pageant in Las Vegas Sunday night, the 21 year-old gave a rambling, awkwardly-worded answer that included several long pauses and the phrase "create education better."
The cringe-inducing response was getting lots of buzz Monday. Pageant co-owner Donald Trump scolded the haters on Twitter, saying anyone can lose their train of thought.
But Miss Utah is not the only beauty to mangle an answer, and her answer was certainly not the worst recorded in a pageant.
Miss South Carolina took that crown with her 2007 "such as"-filled response to a question about geographical literacy.
