Years before she became the first Muslim-American to win the Miss USA crown, Rima Fakih won another prestigious title - "Stripper 101" pole dancing champion!
Back in 2007, the sexy, newly-minuted beauty pageant queen dominated a stripper contest for local Detroit radio morning show called Mojo in the Morning.
Forget the prizes won last night. Rima Fakih earned fabulous prizes for the stripper victory: "jewelry, gift cards, adult toys and a stripper pole for home use."
Top that, Donald Trump!
In case Miss USA Rima Fakih needs a career to fall back on ...

Just the same, you can see the polished form she has, and the natural managed to walk away with a bra stuffed with dollar bills ... those are some nice tips!
