If anyone feels sympathy for Sunday's mocked Miss USA contestant, it's judge and The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes, who asked the competitor the now-infamous question that sent cyberspace into a frenzy.
Marissa Powell, 20 – the Miss Utah finalist who didn't win the competition but could easily be the most searched name online from the pageant – was asked by Leakes, 45, what it says about society that women continue to earn less than men even though they are the primary earners in 40 percent of American families with children.

With six finalists remaining in Las Vegas's Miss USA competition, it was Miss Utah Marissa Powell's turn to answer a question that could make or break her chances of winning the crown.
"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," announced one of the judges, NeNe Leakes. "What does this say about society?"
