061713_miss_utah_launchMiss Utah is beyond humiliated after her epic Q&A fail at the Miss USA pageant, and she's blaming her brain fart on a massive case of nerves ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Marissa Powell tell TMZ the beauty queen's mortified after babbling ... "we need to see how to create education better" while attempting to answer a question about salary inequality for women.

Marissa's now telling friends she botched the response because she was so anxious she spaced out during the question, and never really heard it.

Instead of asking the judge to repeat the question ... Marissa decided to fake an answer, but got more and more flustered as she tried to improvise.

Takes you back to high school, right?

Or maybe to 2007 with the South Carolina, and such as ...

This women is taking a huge amount of scrutiny for what happened on her night, that she probably was well prepared for. Nobody wants this, Cant we all forgive one for having a brain fart. Imagine if that was us up there, It happens. Its people like below that are so closed minded and make them selfs feel better by riding the bully wave and putting other people down. good on you

Miss Massachusetts -- Sara Kidd is smoking hot and should’ve been in the final 5 but I think she screwed herself over by wearing a ponytail with her swimsuit.

Big deal. She sounds like any liberal talking about "income equality". They don't know what the hell they are talking about, either.

NeNe's question was stupid. Women put down men constantly. They are flailing and insecure. Women are aggressive and manipulative -- I don't believe men make more money than women. Women won't even let men be taller--thats why they all wear 6 inch heels!
