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!

HECK W/ALL THE HATERS AND STORY TELLERS. THEY ARE JUST WISH/WANNABES. THE GIRL WON BY VOTES. Y BE SO UGLY WITH THE HURTFUL COMMENTS. YEA, YEA, WE ALL HAVE OUR IDEAS.. WE ALSO HAVE CHOICES. MISS USA , MUSLIM, CATHOLIC, WHAT EVER, SHE HAS ONLY ONE PERSON TO ANSWER TO BESIDES HER EARTHY FAMILY AND THAT IS HER MAKER. SO GIVE THE GIRL A BREAK. IF YOU ARE LIKE THE TV SHOW, THERE ARE QUITE A FEW OF YOU COMMENTERS THAT NEED TO SOUL SEARCH...BECAUSE...GOD DOES NOT LIKE UGLY. I DO BELIEVE IN WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND..MAYBE NOT TO YOU, BUT TO SOMEONE YOU WILL TRULY LOVE.

The way the show has been progressing, I fully expect that type of competition to be included soon. And THEN I'll actually start watching. LOL. :-D BTW, I think Ms. Fakih is absolutely beautiful and deserved to win. I also think the judge who tried to torpedo Miss Oklahoma with the immigration question is an IDIOT! Pageants are no place for politics.

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 RESPECTABLE 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 HEADS!!!!

She wasn't even born in the US and she's a Miss USA? Can you imagine Lebanon or Saudi Arabia or Yemen crowing an American woman Miss Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, etc.? This country has fallen so far off the cliff, it would be funny if it weren't so sad. She claims she knew she won when she looked at Donald. She could tell by the look in his eyes. Guess she was willing to bang his old ass. Does ANYONE watch this pageant **** anyway?

"THE EVENT WAS ATTENDED BY WOMEN ONLY, and Rima never removed her clothing at the event, the radio station said in a statement."
