During the Miss USA 2015 contest Sunday, Miss Texas and soon to be first runner up, Ylianna Guerra, dropped some honesty on the audience — and they loved it.

Guerra made it to the question answering portion and judge and former Miss Universe Michelle McClean-Bailey posed this question:

“Last year, CEOs in the United States made around 300 times as much as the average worker’s salary. Should the government impose boundaries on salaries of executives?”

Guerra’s response drew raucous applause from the crowd.

“That’s a very good question,” she said. “You know, I think that if you work hard enough you can attain anything. This is the land of opportunity and CEOs, I believe that they work hard enough for their money, so I think that they should be able to attain whatever it is they are working for.”

You can see the response at 2:44:40.


Olivia Jordan of Oklahoma was crowned the winner.
