Last night, Miss Connecticut, Erin Brady, was named Miss USA — but thanks to a cringeworthy response, it's Miss Utah, Marissa Powell, who stole the show. During the pageant, judge NeNe Leakes asked Miss Utah about the wage gap between men and women, and the contestant stumbled through an awkward answer, suggesting we "create education better" to solve the problem.
