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!

0517_STRIPPER_LAUNCH
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!

this girl is a complete moron. Did she actually think that these pictures wouldn't eventually come out? I have nothing against strippers or pole dancing, but if you are going to miss USA or miss america, get some class, my god. As a nation we are now dumber for crowning another you-know-what for yet another year.

What I don't understand is why people are making a big thing about this. She is showing that you can be sexy and porvacotive while ebing fully dressed. She is not in a bikini like all the other contest entrants, she is in shorts and a t-shirt and still won.as far as being pretty enought to be Miss America not at all, but nnot being a slut in this day and age is incredible.
Question is if she weren't Islamic would that picture even be noticed or would the news be promoting it as good clean fun...

I am disgusted by all the negative comments. All you Guys out there are so pathetic and should pick your panties out of your tight asses. This girl is Breath taking beautiful period! Americans are the most racist people ive ever come across. All you idiots are so uneducated . All the guys and girls that say negative things about her need to be bitch slapped. Rima is the BOMB! intellectually, physically . Shes all that and a bag of chips. So step off suckas and let this Lebanese bombshell make way.

I wonder if Donald would be just as supportive if little Ivana would have chosen this path instead of being one of his minions.
He and his cronies are the epitome of creepy ,old, viagra munching slobs. Vomit.

Because of her non disclosure of the photos and the college video, she should lose the crown. You have to sign a morality clause when you compete in Miss USA in regard to racy photos and since it is now apparent that she did not disclose these facts, she should have to step down as Miss USA. I think the photos are sort of vulgar as well as the college video even though she is not nude, but it is her lack of honesty in not disclosing these facts to MUO that should cost her the title. Trump should not give her a second chance as it sends the wrong message to any and all future contestants if Miss USA is to continue or why have a morality clause and let any and all escorts, strippers, etc. compete.

I have a problem with her apparent lack of honesty because all prospective contestants have to sign a morality clause in regard to any racy photos that have out there and it is apparent that she did not do that or she would not of been allowed to compete at the state level. These photos and the apparent college video may not show her nude but they should of been disclosed and for her lack of honesty she should lose her crown.
