Sunday night was a PACKED evening of television. The NBA Finals. Miss USA. Mad Men. True Blood. You've Got Mail. The Vanilla Ice Project marathon on DIY. So. Many. Choices. Thus, you might have missed the fact that Miss Utah USA gave the worst answer since Miss South Carolina had diarrhea of the mouth back in 2007.

Miss Utah USA, Marissa Powell, pulls a number from the bowl to determine which judge will ask her a question. That slip of paper gave Judge No. 3, Nene Leaks, the green light to fire away.

"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?"

How did Miss Utah respond? Basically, the opposite of this.

Take it away, Miss Utah:

"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 … um … seen as the leaders of this and, so, we need to try to figure out how to create educate better so we can solve this problem. Thank you."

Next time, just punt.
