This sure beats her day job!

Miss Connecticut Erin Brady was crowned Miss USA on Sunday night in Las Vegas. The 25-year-old said she'd be quitting her job as a accountant to fulfill her duties for the next year.

As Miss USA, Brady will be put up in a Manhattan apartment for the next 12 months and go on a speaking tour raising awareness about breast cancer, the organization's official cause. 

Brady won the pageant after answering a question about the Supreme Court's controversial decision to uphold widespread DNA testing.

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

If Erin is unable to fulfill her duties as Miss USA, she will be replaced by first runner up Mary Margaret McCord of Alabama. Miss Illinois Stacie Juris was second runner up.
