Who else remembers; Going on group dates in Jeff Curtis's Astro Saying "Let's Astro" instead of "Let's jet" Going to the grocery store and seeing who can buy the most expensive grape Going to KROQ stake dances Going out to IHOP or Denny's afterwards and trying to empty an entire bottle of ketchup just so we could roll up the waitress's tip and stick it in the empty bottle Dressing up in formal wear and having a picnic on the island in the middle of a busy street That awesome EFY on Catalina Island with Jon Byetheway, Brad Wilcox, and Miss Utah
Miss Utah follows in the steps of Miss South Carolina 2007'. Next stop, a Weezer video with Sweet Brown & Antoine Dodson
It's hot out there today! How hot? I was sweating like Miss Utah on Jeopardy!
*** Harmon: BYU's Kyle Van Noy sticks up for Miss Utah after her fumbled pageant answer (Deseret News)
MONTI -LICIOUS JUNE 23, 2013 This week there was so much happening around our Las Vegas landscape – at Planet Hollywood you had Miss Usa and though Miss Utah made a faux pas (I’m not sure it cost her the contest) , Miss Connecticut was crowned Miss Usa. The Jonas Brothers, what is that? Juliette from the E! what is that? It brought a lot of moolah to our economy so whoever all these people are is a good thing. My friends Jim and Rose Perine’s son Kelly made a pilot with the Jonas Brothers band, which was cut but went to video. One of the Jonas boys appears in the PBS Special of the 25th Anniversary of Les Miserables appearing as Marius. I might try out for Jeopardy because my memory hasn’t left me yet! This week, also at Planet Hollywood, Marshall Sylver, hypnotist, illusionist and marketing genius has reportedly closed his show – or is it only a temporary thing as the release says? Marshall will end up somewhere else – you can bet on that. He reportedlyclaims this show at Planet *** ...
Miss Utah is at my work.. Holy Moses..
The Miss Usa pageant doesn't ask contestants to perform a talent or support a charity. But it does ask some challenging questions of its contestants. What did the celebrity judges ask the final six contestants – and how did the women answer? 1. Miss Utah Judge Nene Leakes (of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta") asked: "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?” Miss Utah, Marissa Powell replied: “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 seen as the leaders of this, so we need to try to figure out how to create education better so we can solve this problem.” 2. Miss Alabama Question from Wendie Malick, a comedic actress ("Hot in Cleveland" and "Just Shoot Me") asks: “Government tracking of phone record ...
Overheard from one of the oldest teens answering a Miss Utah interview question: "What is your favorite man-made invention?" "Electricity." "Good answer!" Catty: "Was she being sarcastic?"

Miss Utah and Miss South Carolina join forces to give the perfect pageant answer.
The Miss Usa 2013 pageant stirred up chatter this week because of Miss Utah's infamously flubbed answer in the Q+A portion. But others took notice of another troubling happening on the pageant stage: the contestants' shrinking bodies.

Congresswoman Gwen Moore of Wisconsin said the bill was “born of ignorance” and contends that “Miss Utah is on to something.”
Miss Utah maybe had made 'an error'during live telecast question n answer session.but she also a human being and just 21.Mistakes do happen even in highly precised computer programmes and machines.why not her? The society which sets very high standards in everything just makes things worse! Live, Learn and Play!
Life is like a beauty pageant. Some days you feel like Miss Illinois. Some days you feel like Miss Utah.
John Oliver, from last night's Daily Show on Marco Rubio's Immigration bill. Rubio wants to make all immigrants have to learn English before citizenship. Oliver: "It's now official. It'll be harder to become a citizen, than it is to win Miss Utah."
Everyone was sitting at the edge of their seat waiting for someone to say something silly and Youtube worthy at that pageant. We love finding flaws in people who are too attractive to get turned down from a job where they literally just stand next to a product and make more than the rest of us who actually do work. Donald Trump has padded his pockets as his businesses file for bankruptcy like any good businessman would, and says his name is a trillion dollar brand. He is the smartest business man in the world when it comes to making himself rich. There's a 0 percent change that Miss Utah was legitimately answering the question. Either the producers told her what the question would be ahead of time then changed it without telling her, or she went up there to purposefully create a Youtube moment that could be talked about for months after the event was over, to keep the momentum going into his next pageant. 9 million hits and counting. This is the new propaganda.
So while I'm packing for all 3 of my back to back trips (yes, I said 3 back to back trips!!!) I've got Jimmy Kimmel on TV & who is on his show...Miss Utah! I stopped to watch her interview with him & I just have to say she ROCKS!! She had the best attitude about her answer, the winner & everything! Jimmy even tried to get her to say bad things about the winner & the pageant system & never did she go that route, she said "you can't take yourself too seriously...sometimes you have to laugh at yourself...everything happens for a reason." Her explanation for what happened on stage was so real & yes, understandable! Congrats again CT & way to redeem yourself UT!! :)
Miss Utah is hot and I do not care if she answered the question incorrectly. I did not even watch the pageant. I just know she is hot!!!
Republican Congressman Darrell Issa's answers about Obama and the IRS make Miss Utah seem like Einstein!
Here's the funny part: Miss Utah is going to do just fine in life. She'll do great.

Miss Utah of 2013 gets trolled by Jim Downey on Billy Madison
Anybody else bothered by the Miss Utah fiasco on national television Sunday night? If so, what are your thoughts? As a radical feminist, I didn’t watch it, of course. But I saw clips on the news, along with numerous inbox emails and media comments justifying why women should be compensated less than men on the job. It drove me nuts, so I’m ready to vent to all my friends. I apologize in advance if you disagree. The Miss Usa event is but one of many such sexist phenomena in America. They drive me crazy because they are so insulting to females, whether they are of the bathing suit type that Donald Trump enjoys, or the little princess pageants that seem to be growing. I know that many of us have had a glitch or two in public. None of my national or local media interviews have ever been perfect. But she sought the limelight in this case. It wasn’t that she didn’t have handlers and had to prepare alone. One needs to be somewhat ready for these types of inquiries, or at least know current issues and hav ...

I wouldn't assume Miss Utah is stupid I think she just got nervous answering such a hard question off hand in front of millions of people

Miss Utah is still very sexy no matter what kind of answer she gives

Great articulation of something that has been bugging me since seeing the Miss Utah video.
I don't agree that Miss Utah is "dumb." I'm sure she was just extremely nervous and startled by the question.
even Fallon feels bad for Mets fans...
Miss Utah fumbled a question about equal pay for women at the Miss Usa pageant. Apparently she got confused and started talking about how a woman should be given the same allowance her husband gives to his seven other wives.
Thank you Matt Lauer and the Today Show for giving Miss Utah a chance to explain and answer the question she was given at Miss Usa. She did remarkably well, and now the topic of women's pay scale vs men's pay scale for same work is in the news. Thank you.
Miss Utah was asked about women in the workforce & she fumbled. But the real disgrace is the pageants, themselves -->
Just incase you missed it. shes really Hot but. There's something missing! Miss Utah

Who cares about her? Miss Utah stole the show with her intellectual response.

I am loving my new journey here in the south. Sometimes it is scary and lonely but mostly it's amazing and fun. I love that nobody knows me here and I can truly be myself. I love that everybody here is polite and sweet and acts like Utah is a different planet. I love the trees and all the rain (I've seen more rain here in a month than a year in Utah). I love that my husband loves seeing me see things for the first time, like little traffic lights and fireflies. I feel like I am seeing myself clearly for the first time and it is a breath of fresh air. I know that we will not end up in Louisville, Kentucky, but I'm glad we came, and so excited that we decided to go on this adventure together.

Do you have a webcam on your computer? If you do, you should know that hackers, including the Eye of Pres. Lucifer — the National Security Agency (NSA) — can access your webcam and watch you in your own home. Greg Kumparak writes for TechCrunch that on June 13, 2013, security consultant Egor Homakov gave a demonstration on how a hacker can snap pics off your webcam, right through the browser, with no consent required. Homakov showed how a hacker can use a few old tricks to work around Flash’s requirement that a user explicitly grants a website permission before it can access their camera or microphone. The basic technique, Clickjacking, is nothing new and is very well known in the hacking world. TechCrunch even tested the technique on the latest build of Chrome for Mac, and it pulled from their webcam without issue or any visible prompt. When it works, the only evidence that the camera was ever accessed is a near instant and oh-so-easy-to-miss blink of the LED indicator. You can test the proof of c ...
Happy Phi Day everyone. If you know what I'm talking about consider yourself smarter than Miss Utah..., *** even if you have no idea what I'm talking about you're smarter than Miss Utah. Phi is the Golden ratio (phi is the Greek letter that represents the golden number 1.618034. Round down the reciprocal number and you have 0.618. I promise I'm not making this up). Phi governs patterns of growth and decay in naturally occurring structures. Example: it identifies where your navel appears on your body, approximately 0.618 the distance from your feet to the top of your head. So now that you know what Phi Day is go out and pick someone's navel. Go on, I dare you.
Well just trying to get back into the swing of things here on the home front ,after our very very fast & furious trip to Utah it was very nice to visit with my family see friends but is always is bitter sweet when we have to leave I deffently miss every one so much and no matter how long of a trip it is , it always seems like their is never enough time to go around and visit with everyone and still try to do things we want to make it into a little vacation and not just a trip but some how can't seem to do that and can't ever please everyone but all in all had a good time. Well until next time PEACE OUT .&... LOVE

I've seen a lot of bashing of Miss Utah. My thoughts are that we are just beginning to see the devastation caused by no child left behind. I remember watching pageants with my mom when I was younger, and the ladies were able to speak intelligently on any subject put before them. Quite sad.
I still find it odd that nowhere out here has fry sauce besides the grocery store! Ugh get with it people!! Ketchup and mayo please... :)
Not a big fan of pageants, but I have to admit that I talk like this about 20 times a day. Feel bad for her.

Thanks Mary Friona-wgrz for bringing up the subject about Miss Utah. Yeah, she flubbed her question answer, but it was so painful to watch. I felt so bad for her. She was nervous. The media nowadays likes to see people cumble and don't care about their feelings. Leave Miss Utah alone already.
Miss Utah USA takes 2nd stab at pageant question - Las Vegas (AP) — Miss Utah USA is taking another stab at the pageant question that brought her Internet infamy.
i feel sorry for Miss Utah for bumbling her answer. But the answer was simple . Either pay women equally or face lawsuits.
Oh yeah thx Miss Utah : p and what's that *** babies name yet?
So I listened to the Miss Utah answer fiasco. Two things came to my mind: if the answers hear girls give are so important, how about a list of the questions be given to the contestants the night before so they have a better chance at giving a solid opinion. Two, why are we letting the judges off the hook?! They frequently ask very controversial or crazy, off the wall questions. The judge in this case asked a terrible question that could have been interpreted in two ways! Let's throw a fair share of shame at the judges too.
That Miss Utah seems to have some unique abilities. The South African government should give her a job and ask her to create education, health, defence, etc here.
The Miss Usa pageant seemed to cause a brain meltdown for this Miss Utah contestant.
For those of you interested in how the Miss NC Pageant is conducted: the 33 contestants are divided into groups A, B and C. Rachel is in Group C. She always gets to go last because in the luck of the draw she got number 33. Tonight is the first preliminary (yesterday all 33 contestants had their interviews with the judges). I don't know what groups A and B are doing but tonight is evening wear/onstage question for Group C. Tomorrow night Rachel's group will do either talent or fitness (aka swimwear) and then on Thursday they will do the one they don't do tomorrow night. Each night a contestant from each group will win for her event of the evening. That is only a preliminary win. I'll keep you updated. One thing I will tell you: Rachel is an absolute knockout in her dress. I am so excited I'm almost sick.

Miss Utah first of all don't live in Texas if you want equal pay because Right now Governor Perry is going to make sure you don't get it! It needs to be passed at a federal level like minimum wage. The GOP and Dem. supported it and I hope every woman remembers when they go to the poll! Perry needs to go!
The best part of Miss Utah's airball is the stuff being written about it. Great WaPo editorial. Hat tip to my brother for sending this. "'Please, look as beautiful in this swimsuit as you possibly can while telling me why gender should not determine your level of compensation.' Don’t we notice how ridiculous this is? No man will ever be asked this. There is no explicit beauty portion of the competition, whatever the competition. 'Thank you, Jim, for that insightful reply about job creation. Okay, trousers off.' That’s not a phrase you will hear on national TV."

So I was slow on the joke last time but I want to be on it this time. I would like to thanks Miss. Utah for joining the lonely Miss S.Carolina...she was so alone. But Yes, we need more education because some uh, people don't have maps...so the pay for genders can be um more educated. I would like to see honesty in these vanity parades. If a girl is up there because she is pretty that is one thing but don't make a fish be out of water. If they don't really have an IQ of over 100 then just go with it. so I revised it. Miss.Utah the country has single moms and there is a pay scale that favors men, what does this say about our country.

What is it with beauty pageant contestants? Miss Utah offered up a gem of a mangled answer in the recent Miss Usa pageant, and it is a doozy.

Okay...so I broke down and watched the Miss Utah clip everyone seems to be sharing. Come on now, friends. This is a backwards competition. We start with beauty and then try to discern if there is more there. We'd do a lot better for ourselves -- and actually have a relevant and interesting contest -- if we started with started with blind intelligence, ingenuity and talent and then discovered (at the end) whether our concept of beauty was challenged in the process.

Good luck to Victoria pozzuoli at miss Utah! I loved doing your pictures for miss Utah and wish you the best of luck.

obuma should be getting the crap that Miss Utah is getting over a miss spoke remark! But he is a professional liar, we don`t point our finger at him and laugh!
Miss Utah actually used the correct grammar if it not for her pageant status and beauty she could have gotten away with it.
I'm worried Miss Utah might have it exactly right.
Why is everybody hoin miss Utah? She it the nail on the head didn't she? We need better EDUCATION STAT! And we can start with her
It's okay, Miss Utah. Asked the same question, certain politicians would meander incoherently and ultimately lie or blame George Bush.
We secretly knew all along that accounting was a glamorous profession, but now we have proof.
As if it weren't enough that Miss Utah has been lambasted and shredded in the press for being taken by surprise by a fairly complex question asked during a contest focused otherwise entirely on beauty, now we have this. Somebody has decided that Utah girls don't care about career, salary, inequality in the work force, and other issues facing women today. This person asserts that, for a Utah girl, "If she is like most Utah girls, she would have been raised to understand her "role" in life which does not include earning power, career choice, self-advocacy, or understanding why Utah is dead last when it comes to parity in salaries between men and women." This person has decided that Utah girls are discouraged from talking about these issues. Tell me, Utah girls: is this true? I can tell you that this is not true in my family. I have one daughter and she knows her value and how to fight for herself.
why does the news media keep running that news clip of poor Miss Utah, enough already, Stop humilitaing her.
The most hilarious thing to awaken to.the winner of the Miss Usa contest (IQ 54) AND the mush mouthed Miss Utah (IQ 52) AND Matt Lauer (IQ 61) in "discussion" on the Today Show. The only thing better would have been the interview conducted by Savannah Guthrie (IQ too low to *** by testing protocols).
Who was the bigger choker over the weekend, Phil Mickelson or Miss Utah?
To those having so much fun mocking Miss Utah: If YOU have, barely out of your teens, had the glare of the lights in your eyes, the merciless camera pointed straight at you, an audience hanging on your every word as a microphone is shoved in your face and you are asked inane questions - to which your answers were always coherent, witty and poised, go ahead. If not, shut up. No really, you're beaing a ***

Folks you can laugh at Miss Utah all you want 20 years from now she's going to be the Vice President nominee for the Repu…
Leave women alone, leave Julia Gillard alone for being in power and maintaining her womanhood (check hollywood for the definition of revealing cleavage), leave Miss Utah alone for spending more time in front of the mirror than the books (she can't be both beauty queen and Einstein). Humans are not perfect yet society expect women to be flawless and when men stumble it goes unnoted.. women a break
So this has been an interesting Monday. Yesterday a British man won the US Open, which was his FIRST major. He played great. BUT all the sportsworld can talk about is how Phil Mickleson failed again and came in 2nd for the 6th time. Also Miss Usa was crowned. BUT all the media is talking about is the flub by Miss Utah. I find it odd that we are so fascinated by failure. Consequently I don't know the name of the US Open Champion nor do I even know the State of the girl who won Miss Usa. I want to be about the positive and rejoice with those who have won. And even if I do focus on those who fail, I hope I can be somehow comforting or emphathetic. I probably dont always but I that is sure my hope.
Miss Utah says men are leaders in awful pageant speech that is being hailed as the worst ever.
Super awesome week! I am excited that I got promoted to Regional Marketing and PR manager of Plurie and will be working with an amazing team of designers, fitters, cutters and all around magicians to grow a brand of versatile fashionable travel clothing. Poured some cocktails or what I call cocktails at Brick and Mortar, filmed for production of the workout DVD's at Corvasso, worked with Alectra Kelley and DJ Schoeny on some SexyFit ideas, bought a car, put my robber in jail, saved a few babies from burning buildings, ended wars and listened to Miss Utah's key points on importance of education and yes... that is pretty much it. Anyway, Happy Monday everyone, let another week begin!
This is newsworthy? A beauty pageant contestant says something stupid? Miss Utah isn't campaigning for political office. She sounds no more incoherent than Sarah Plain.
Miss Utah: Proof that even pretty girls need public training!
Watch the beautiful Miss Utah stumble her way through even the most straight-forward questions while still looking beauty.
No wonder Miss Utah (Miss Usa Contest) fumbled a question about women in the workplace and disparity between men and women wages. It's a false statement. Implication that women are discriminated against in the workplace is false. Single women out earn male counterparts. The reason women earn less is they leave the workplace for having children. Miss Utah should have repeated this fact. Instead she had brain lock.
Trending story on Miss Utah is very unfair. She simply lost her train of thought- could happen to anyone!
Miss Utah definitely stood out at Sunday's Miss Usa pageant, but probably not the way she wanted as she awkward stumbled through her answer to a question about pay inequality.
It's a Monday... who do YOU think muffed up the worst this weekend... it could be sports related (Lebron, Phil Mickelson, etc) or NOT in sports (Miss Utah, a local vendor of yours, etc)... tell us and we'll read live on air now...
Someone go tell Miss Utah that Rupert Murdock is single again. She is gonna need a sugar daddy after last night.
Today is the day Kylee joins all the contestants for Miss Utah week!!!

Kylee will be performing her talent!!! Check back here for updates of Kylee's week and pictures!!! GOOD LUCK MISS UTAH COUNTY!!!
It's just another example of a culturally endorsed form of sexual exploitation and female objectification- and now everybody's 'mocking' poor Miss Utah's flubbed answer? What planet are we living on anyway? Oh- the levels of irony.
Miche s Cyber Weekend Event - Savings up to 75%
Miss Utah didn't leave the stage with a glittery sash and tiara Sunday night (all the shiny headgear left with Miss Connecticut), but everyone is talking about her this morning. During the Miss Usa pageant, Marissa Powell was asked for her thoughts about the income disparity between men and women.
Wait a minute...Miss Utah awkwardly fumbles her answer about equal pay--. but then Guiliana Rancic calls her 'sweetheart?'
I feel bad for the Miss Usa winner... nobody is talking about her, just about Miss Utah's stupid answer.
Miss Utah is clearly in need of taking advantage of this so called "education" that "men" need to create. Yikes.
Awkward Alert! Did you see the hot mess answer Miss Utah gave during last night's Miss Usa pageant Q&A? Watch now! would YOU have answered the q?
I'm being optimistic today, despite how crabby I would like to be. Today's points of optimism: - It's supposed to rain today, which means training for my first 10k will hopefully start in my ideal running conditions. - God graced me with some pretty fantastic friends, family, and a fantabulous boyfriend (who leant me his car while he's on vacation). - I'm not Miss Utah.
The look on Guiliana Rancic's face is priceless as Miss Utah lets her moron flag fly.
I can't lie. I feel bad today for Miss Utah. Where is Candice Bergen when you need her.
Erin Brady, Miss Connecticut, took the crown Sunday in the annual Miss Usa contest but it's Miss Utah who takes the cake for odd answers to the questions posed by the panel of contest judges.
'Miss Utah' shows up at this time as Trend in Salt Lake City
Watching Miss Usa my choices Miss Texas, Miss Illinois, and Miss Utah (Todd Oshiro ) choice's are the same
& then there's this: MT“Sunday's most awkward Miss Usa response brought to you by Miss Utah (video)
I just want to thank team Miss Usa for a wonderful Father's Day. Shout outs go's to Miss South Carolina, Miss Ohio, Miss Utah and Miss California. I had a blast.
Way to go Miss Utah on 3rd runner up and the Miss Photogenic award at Miss Usa. I think she would have won if she didn't screw up on her answer.
You haven't really lived until you've watched the 'Miss Usa Pageant' with the Scotts. Granted, it's our first time, and we only tuned in for the final 30 minutes after picking up the Miss Utah clip running wild, but Morgan just emerged into the family room toting some fake flowers and waving to the crowd.

Do you think Miss Utah knows she just totally butchered the question? You were pretty 'til you opened your mouth!
Oh I had high hopes for Miss Utah until she answered her panel question...ugh :o/ poor girl
So I am viewing the Miss America competition and was listening to the first round of questions. Oh by the way.. Miss Utah for president ! Ok.. Back on point! Miss Connecticut says she is an advocate against constant texting. Says younger generation is loosing the ability to speak. Which includes spelling and inflect tone. Lololol I tgt that was :-) Kidding.. I agree 100%
Miss Utah, that was a worse answer than the one Billy Madison gave on the Industrial Revolution
is it just me or does Miss Utah look like Jenny Dell?
Loved hanging with these ladies tonight, Miss Utah and Miss Teen Utah International
By any chance do any of my friends have contact with Miss Utah, Miss India, Miss Africa or/and Miss Asia? Would like to have them on Olanova Fashion Show Fundraiser on the "green walking carpet" on Friday May 31st"

Ian is planning his ways on how to make our daughter not a girly girl, I had to remind him that before she's here, she will have attended Miss America. At age 2 mos, she'll spend the week with me at Miss Utah. That's a whole lot if girly sparkle. Good luck dad!
