The unofficial title of 'worst-ever pageant answer' is probably not what you want to walk away from a beauty contest with, but Miss Utah has taken the crown.

Describing what the gender pay gap says about society could be difficult for many, but 21-year-old Marissa Powell's response was really bad.

So bad, it "eclipsed all other terrible pageant answers before her," reported The Atlantic.

"I think we can relate this back to education, and how we are continuing... to try to strive ...to [smiles] 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 we need to try to figure out how to... create education better. So that we can solve this problem," she said.

Miss Utah started trending on Twitter, was a hit on the blogosphere, and was even said to have been on par with 2007 Miss South Carolina, who described why many Americans could not find the USA on a map.

Luckily Powell rated in the beauty stakes, taking third runner-up.
