WASHINGTON:  Erin Brady has been crowned Miss USA 2013. The 25-year-old, from East Hampton, Conn., works as a financial accountant and recently earned a finance degree at Central Connecticut State University.

The brunette beauty, who opened up about struggling with alcoholism in her family, has said she intends to become an advocate for children of addicts.

Miss Alabama USA was first runner-up in the field of 51 Miss USA contestants, a group that became progressively smaller over the two-hour contest.

After pageant pros strut their stuff and answered questions about privacy concerns, treason, swimsuits and packing, Erin Brady came out on top.

The finalists were narrowed to a Top 6, rather than the standard Top 5, due to a rule change that let viewers Tweet their support of one of the Top 10.

That twist propelled Miss Texas going to the finals, even though she didn't get the necessary votes from the judges, but it was a moot point in the end.

Each of the final six contestants answered the "Final Question," and Brady came across the best with her answer to a question regarding DNA testing for criminals.

Brady agreed with the Supreme Court of the U.S. on the complex issue, supporting testing and sounding like she knew what she was talking about.

Before Brady won, Nana Meriwether was reigning Miss USA. She took the title when Olivia Culpo, the winner of Miss USA 2012, advanced to win Miss Universe.

Brady and Culpo, a former Miss Rhode Island, have made it two straight from tiny New England states not renowned for their beauty pageant production.

Both competitions, under the umbrella of the Miss Universe Organization, are headed up by none other than Donald Trump. As he often likes to remind us.

Olivia Culpo announced during the Miss USA 2013 festivities that the next Miss Universe competition will make its home in Moscow this November.

As for Brady, her "special talent" is cooking and she loves to bowl.
