The new Miss USAwho found herself in Internet photos from a radio show's "Stripper " contest, insists the pictures were in well-intentioned jest — despite their racy nature. I didn't do anything wrong. Fikah says the event actually focused on building women's fitness and confidence.
The photos were released by the Detroit morning radio show "Mojo in the Morning" less than 24 hours after Fakih beat out Miss Oklahoma, who lost the title after answering a question about illegal immigration.

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 year-old from Michigan who is thought to be the first Muslim woman ever to win the competition, 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 ' contest at the Coliseum Gentleman's Club in and other photographs showed her wearing a bra stuffed with dollar bills, reported Daily Mail online.
