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!

TMZ...give this girl a break. She just won and a day after you have to try to rain on her parade! seriously...Who cares if she danced on a pole or not, haven't we all playing around with our girlfriends at the club? I know regular clubs which have polls to dance on...find something more interesting to report about...

It shouldn't matter what her background is...however, THIS is a representative of our country? What Tiger and Jesse's sloppy seconds weren't available? Because that's just how I see it. I get that both the Miss America and Miss USA pagents are just that - beauty/"scholarship" pagents. But c'mon! These women still represent our country to the rest of the world. What? Now she'll say she didn't think the picture would get out...blah blah blah...yadda yadda yadda.
Trump, you really need to check your "scholarship" program rules. They seem to be very arbitrary. While I think that Prejean or whatever her name was is an idiot, she got crucified for her comments but this picture is okay? AND Mr. Trump, if it were up to me and I was on the board of directors for this pagent, I'd say YOUR FIRED!!

I'm surprised they didn't go with a mexican because Arizona doesn't want illegal aliens entering there borders. But they went with the A-Rab instead because of the terrorist thing. Why no burka though?

Little Arab s1ut. Are there ANY pageant contestants that aren't wh0res and don't have nasty pictures from their past?



Well, Donald Trump does run this pageant, so it's no surprise it's so s1utty.

Looks like a great representative for women in the USA to me. Just look at the human sleeze constantly displayed here just on TMZ? Look at your average group of 13-15 year old girls...totally inappropriate clothes, make-up and so on. They are sexually active at 13 according to many studies. Women in the USA have become total sleeze looking for every chance to be attention whores...all while demanding respect. What a laugh.



If you're a young man...screw all the tramps you can, but marry a homely girl...you'll get someone faithful with class who you can be proud of...even if you do have to put a bag over her head : )

She is not Muslim but Chaldean. Chaldean are Catholic and she is a St. John's Preparatory Catholic High School grad. Not all Arabs are Muslim and the Chaldeans goes back 5000 years in the Bible; it's all there dude. The "h" is silent btw.

What are you all up in arms about? Haven't you heard about pole dancing aerobics? It's a great exercise regimen and can really help
you lose lots of weight and inches off of the body with real decent
effects, that are noticable almost immediately! How do I know this?
I own a dancing pole, in my living room, and use it on a daily or nightly basis! It's not only great exercise it is extremely sexy for their s/o!

Congrats on making the final payment on the pole.
And you can now call yourself an owner.

This girl is a Lebonese American. There is quite a large group of them living in the Detroit area. She's not perfect but I do think she will be a great USA.

HOLD ON AMERICA!!! DOESNT A STRIPPER TAKE HER CLOTHES OFF TO THE POINT WHERE SHES NAKED???? ITS TOO BAD THAT SO MANY NARROW MINDED PEOPLE THINK THAT JUST BECAUSE A GIRL DANCES ON A POLE IS DOWN GRADED. POLE DANCING IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST RESPECTIBLE COMPETITIONS IN EUROPE. IF ANY TALKS BAD ABOUT RIMA ITS BECAUSE THEY ARE NOTHING BUT JEALOUS JEALOUS JEALOUS!! LEBANESE WOMAN ARE KNOWN TO BE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN ON EARTH. AND INCASE YOU STUPID PEOPLE OUT THERE DONT KNOW , LEBANON IS THE MOST LIBERATED COUNTRY IN THE MIDDLE EAST INFLUENCED BY THE FRENCH. KNOWN BY ITS BEAUTY AND ART AND FASHION. KNOW YOUR STUFF BEFORE YOU OPENED UP YOUR BIG MOUTHS FROM YOUR BOX SHAPED HEAD!!!!
