Miss USA 2010 Winner Rima Fakih Photos – Miss Michigan Wins, Despite Fall!
The Miss USA 2010 pageant just came to a close and the new beauty holding the title of Miss USA is Miss Michigan title holder Rima Fakih.
Miss USA 2009 winner Kristen Dalton (who is linked romantically to former Bachelorette contestant Reid Rosenthal – from Jillian’s season) gave up her crown tonight and now Rima Fakih is ready to take on the task of traveling the world and helping out those less fortunate for the next 12 months.
The 51 contestants were quickly narrowed down to 15 and then to five. The lucky women chosen to compete in the final five included Miss Michigan, Miss Virginia, Miss Maine, Miss Colorado and Miss Oklahoma.

Our personal favorite from the very beginning was Miss Michigan so we’re not surprised she won. Not only did she recovery incredibly from a small slip (she didn’t fall right down) during the evening gown portion of the competition but she also gave a shout out to her mom and her director during her interview question. Miss Michigan was the only woman to do this throughout the competition.
Not only did Michigan (Rima Fakih) possess the most grace, elegance and beauty throughout the competition but she was also the most genuine. Her answers didn’t seem rehearsed and her smile didn’t seem forced, much like the other finalists.
So if you’re asking yourself did Miss Michigan really deserve to win Miss USA 2010, the answer is yes. Absolutely.
When asked about how she felt about her new title, Rima replied with “Ask me after I eat a pizza.”
About time someone who deserves to win actually wins. Now let’s hope she doesn’t end up in the middle of controversy like other former Miss USA competitors – Tara Conner, Carrie Prejean.
Did you think Miss Michigan Rima Fakih deserved to win?
