Who is Miss Utah? [VIDEO/PHOTOS]

Miss Utah did not win the Miss USA pageant last night, but she is making headlines. Miss Utah, Marissa Powell, struggled to give a coherent answer to the judges question about equal pay for men and women. Was it nerves or did the pageant hopeful just not understand the question?

First, I thought it would be best to learn more about Miss Utah. Marissa Powell is 21 years old and volunteers at Primary Children’s Hospital and attended college at Westminster College and Brigham Young University. She played volleyball in high school and now acts, models, sings and writes music.

Her favorite holiday is Christmas, prefers calling to texting, would love to live in Greece, is addicted to coke and gets pulled over a lot but has never been given a ticket.

With her background in sports, acting, modeling, and singing, I would assume Marissa is comfortable being in the spotlight, but after last night’s pageant, I would bet she is running from the spotlight. Maybe we will hear her explanation of her answer soon?

While we wait, watch Miss Utah’s rambling answer to the judge’s question, “A recent report shows that in 40% of American families with children, women are the primary earners yet they continue to earn less than men. What does this say about society?”
