Miss Utah’s “Today” Show Redemption

Posted Tuesday June 18, 2013 1:55 PM GMT

She’s become an internet sensation for her less-than-stellar answer during the Miss USA Pageant over the weekend, but Miss Utah Marissa Powell isn’t going out like that.

The 21-year-old stunner appeared on the “Today” show this morning (June 18) to have another go at answering NeNe Leakes’ question regarding the inequality of pay between men and women in today’s workplace.

Powell began, "This is not OK. It needs to be equal pay for equal work. It's hard enough already to earn a living, and it shouldn't be harder just because you're a woman."

Meanwhile, Miss USA Erin Brady added, "You're nervous for her because you know that in a matter of seconds, that can be you. You're going to have a similar question. You are in front of millions of people."
