he was hailed as the poster girl of new America, a Lebanese immigrant who won the Miss USA crown. But just a day after, Rima Fakih’s victory has been tarnished with pictures of her pole dancing at a strip club emerging on the Internet.

The 24-year-old from Michigan features in a video sliding up and down a stripper’s pole in a blue tank top, hot pants and high heels.

Fakih won the ‘Stripper 101’ contest at the Coliseum Gentleman’s Club in 2007 and other photographs showed her wearing a bra stuffed with dollar bills. The photos were posted on the website of a Detroit-based radio show following her triumph at the Miss USA contest.
