Miss USA 2010

Champion Pole Dancer

5/17/2010 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rima Fakih was a big winner wayyyyy before she took the crown for Miss USA 2010 last night -- the 24-year-old beauty queen is a former "Stripper 101" pole dancing champion!

Back in 2007, the sexy pageant queen won a stripper contest for local Detroit radio morning show  Mojo in the Morning.

We're told Fakih earned some fabulous prizes for the victory -- which included "jewelry, gift cards, adult toys and a stripper pole for home use."

And despite the fact that she kept her clothes on during the pole riding, she still managed to walk away with a bra stuffed with dollar bills!

Is THIS what we want our little girls to emulate? She is just another nasty-girl out to get what she can by using her body. And here the Miss USA 'higher ups' say their pageant is about brains first, charm, education opportunities, etc. Gimme a break! Yeah, she's a charmer, alright....pffffffft! Anyone can grind on a pole.

The Miss America is more about poise, talent, interview and elegance.
The Miss USA is more about T and A.
The winner might has well have fallen down



I kind of expect to hear of Miss USA winners posing nude or get in some kind or trouble down the road.
In fact, didn't a former Miss USA do a porn last year?
Classy operation:)

That's Miss USA? I saw the end of the show last night before Celebrity Apprentice and couldn't understand how she was chosen.

Hmmm....weird. I wonder why TMZ isn't calling her slutty for this type of behavior or attacking her 24/7? Oh, because she's Muslim and the leftist nuts at TMZ only attack Christians. Nevermind, I answered my own question.

If she had a lick of brains, she would realize she has set herself up as a Taliban target. They'll claim the evil US has turned one of their virgins into a mockery of Islam. And truthfully, they won't be far off!

Why does TMZ and the media love following the dirt on any of the girls that win or make a controversial comments during a beauty pageant. I guess the media expects beauty pageant girl to be perfect?
