Accountant Miss Connecticut Erin Brady Crowned Miss USA

Miss Connecticut Erin Brady is the new Miss USA.

The 25-year-old was crowned the winner of the pageant on Sunday night at Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Moments after she was handed the crown, the accountant said she couldn't wait to let her bosses know she won't be coming in to work tomorrow.

Brady wore an orange bikini with a matching halter-top to Jonas Brother's 'Pom Poms' before she donned a strapless gown with a spangled golden corset.

But she sealed her victory by answering a question about the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold DNA tests.

"If someone is being prosecuted and committed a crime, it should happen. There are so many crimes that if that's one step closer to stopping them, then we should be able to do so," she said.

That was the same round Miss Utah, Marissa Powell, lost the competition as she stumbled to answer a question about the income gap by providing a meandering response that suggested "create education better."

Brady will represent the United States at the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow, Russia, in November. The first runner up was Miss Alabama, Mary Margaret McCord.

Miss Oregon Gabrielle Neilan was named Miss Congeniality, and Miss Utah Marissa Powell took Miss Photogenic.
