Miss Utah Steals Miss USA's Thunder - Miss Utah’s ridiculous answer to her Q&A portion of the Miss USA competition has taken the shine away from Miss Connecticut- the winner of the pageant. Celebrity judge Nene Leakes asked 21 year old Merissa Powell to respond to the fact that women are becoming the main bread winners in their families but still earn considerably less than their male counterparts. Powell was clearly confused and flustered and responded: “I think we can relate this back to education and how we are continuing to try to strive to figure out how to create jobs right now. That is the biggest problem, and I think especially the men are seen as the leaders of this, and so we need to try to figure out how to create education better so that we can solve this problem. Thank you.” The answer was riddled with awkward pauses and smiles. It goes without saying that of the 5 contestants who were left, she came in 5th place.
