    Brady gets the crown and a New York apartment for one year.

    She is expected to spend her title reign on a nationwide speaking tour and raising breast and ovarian cancer awareness, the organization's official cause.

    Unlike the rival Miss America pageant, Miss USA does not ask its queens to perform a talent or choose a charity mission.
