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!

Perfect fit for today's Miss USA. Girls text pictures of themselves in grade school now. Why should we be shocked Miss USA knows how to work a pole?

The comment by Ellery does make a person think. I do agree though if she said she thought birth control was a personal choice and the Govt. has no business in it...

get a life!!!    

In 2007, Rima would have been 21 years old!!! Are you telling me you didn't enjoy your youth??? Atleast she kept her clothes on!!! Ho many of you have kids that are 21 with a child or a few??? So she danced...big freakin deal!!! Instead of bringing out the positive and promoting MISS USA to compete with confidence and make us proud in the Miss Universe pageant you are finding stupid nonsense to publish and try to ruin her image.



Geez...you rate right up there in stupid closed minded people who have nother better to do in life other than put successful people down because you are nothing more than a loser yourself!!!!



Seriously...GET A LIFE and stop trying to ruin someone elses!!!

Strip her of her crown,then ask for her papers,then strip search her just to be sure there are no hidden explosive devices,she would probably like to stripped searched we could have the Donald do that if he hasn't already,now that she has dropped a media bomb.Only in America where we would have a Muslim President & a Muslim Miss USA.Maybe the reason for Obama dragging his feat on the immigration issue is because he is illegal himself,hmmmm inquiring minds would like to know.

She wasn't really stripping (i.e. she did not get naked). This was done when the stripper pole classes were all the rage. It was taken way out of context. I have met Rima and she is so nice. Plus the Mojo in the mornin show is the best!

WHATEVER    

DID TRUMP RAISE HIS OWN DAUGHTER TO BE A TRASHY,SLUTTY PIMPED OUT
BITCH
???
NO...
BUT HE WANTS TO HOLD UP THIS SORT OF THING AS IF YOUNG GIRLS SHOULD WANT TO BE LIKE THIS ???????? AS IF OTHER PEOPLE'S DAUGHTER'S SHOULD HAVE THIS AS AN EXAMPLE ???? TRUMP HAS ZERO CLASS. HE'S A FART-BAG THAT SHOULD JUST GO AWAY.
We need a renaissance in this country. Trash is somehow so highly rated. The show she won her crown on seemed cheap as well. Back in the good old days, there was something called "class", which this arab bitch will never have. And pervert donald HUMP also promotes showing these women, who are supposed to represent something higher...he shows them in their underwear. The pageant is only a glorified Victoria's Secret.
