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!

Oh, please!



She's a University of Michigan graduate, a beautiful AMERICAN woman, and won fair and square.



That she entered a contest (FULLY CLOTHED) three years ago hardly makes her a tramp, stupid, unqualified, or any of the other hurtful comments here.



Detroit is PROUD of her and she will represent the USA wonderfully in the Miss Universe contest.

She just went into that bar with naked paintings on the walls and people get drunk to exercise. I get it now.

This show is fixed. I guess it is politically correct to
have a Muslim picked. I'm sure the Donald has something to say
about who wins it.

Don't tell me Trump and his people did not know about this upon her initial screening/entering the pageant.
Shows you how classy he and his team are. . . NOT.

Who does not have something in their past that they are not proud of? Why TMZ and other medias just love to find dirt on people the minute they gain some fame? I do not know this woman and could careless about her, however, there is no need to drag her past to bring her down. The same thing with all the other celebrities out there. I am sure that all at TMZ and those of us who read this garbage have things in our past that we would not like anyone to know because it would bring us shame.



It is so sad how mediocre we have become as a society. We just seem to enjoy hearing about other people's shame and destruction.
I just hope that what goes around come around for people who seem to enjoy exposing people's past. People have the right to regret their past and try to move on in a better direction.



Shame on TMZ, and shame on us for reading this garbage. If we did not read it they would not post it.

Miss Oklahoma Morgan Elizabeth Woolard was ripped off. She definitely was the best contestant, but I really didn't expect anything different from Trump who goes out of his way to initiate controversy for ratings.

I don't understand how can anyone judge her over a pole dancing? She was young and wanted to win the contest. So f*ckin' what! Even if she posed nude in the past. Everyone has their dirt. I bet everyone of you have your own sh*t in your toilet too. I don't doubt that any of you drinks, smokes weed, been arrested, dressed like a hoochie at the club, etc. You guys are just jealous coz she's not you and she won! The point is you will never be like her (now that she got the title, money and popularity). You guys are just a bunch of losers who are nobody.



As far as Rima, keep up the good work. You're very beautiful and I wish you the best!

Get a Nose Job, please!!!    

This show was rigged. Even wildhaired Trump had his wife be a judge. Miss Oklahoma should have won. She is more beautiful, classier, answered a difficult question and didn't stumble around on stage. The Miss America Pageant is mostly about scholarships and the Miss USA is mostly about big boobs. Trump needs a new hair piece. It's awful !!!! With all of her face lifts, Joan Rivers looks like a freak. Her nasty personality doesn't help, either. It's a dumb show. I won't watch again.

Ho bag gonna have to give up the crown...these ho ho hos gotta go go go. Miss America should represent America and all it stands for. What? She DOES represent America? Oh you are right..the US IS deemed to fail. Another example of the downward spiral. Can't wait for the sex vid of her.
