Miss USA crown goes to Connecticut contestant
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The newest Miss USA is leaving a white-collar job behind for the glamour and excitement that go with her new role — and she can’t wait.
Moments after she was crowned at the Planet Hollywood hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday, Connecticut accountant Erin Brady said all she could think about was letting her bosses know she won’t be coming in tomorrow. Or ever again.
As her family and fiance looked on, Brady beat out other contestants from every U.S. state and Washington, D.C., to take the title, accepting the crown from outgoing queen Miss Maryland Nana Meriwether.
