Jimmy Kimmel sent his crew to the street on Monday to prove the general public isn't too far off from the Miss USA contestants when they are put on the spot to answer social and political questions.
“You know, everyone likes to make fun of the answers that Miss USA gives,” Jimmy Kimmel said. “But I wonder how any person would do when they are put on the spot like that with a camera in their face.”
So the ABC late-night show conducted its experiment by asking random pedestrians questions such as, “Do you think affordable healthcare for all US citizens is a right or a privilege and why?” and “Do you know what feminism is and are you a feminist?”
The answers were mixed, but some were in line with Miss USA winner Kara McCullough, who received instant backlash for telling judges saying health care is "definitely" a "privilege."
Some of the pedestrians interviewed believed healthcare is a privilege because “our constitution wasn't based on the rights of healthcare,” while others believe it should be a right if this country can afford to give celebrities their red carpet bling.
The most entertaining answer came at the end when a man is asked, "What specific women's rights issue is most important to you?"
"Well, I had a few bad dates, so you women and men, we need to come together," he said before getting even more personal. "So everybody should get the same amount of rights, but some women shouldn't judge you because you don't have a car."
