Rima Fakih of Dearborn, Michigan, crowned 2010 Miss USA at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. The 24-year-old Arab-American girl beat out 50 other contestants to win the 2010 Miss USA pageant on Sunday.

When asked how she felt about being the new Miss USA for 2010, she said, "Ask me after I've had a pizza." LOL!! She has such a great sense of humor.

Miss Michigan Rima Fakih was probably the first of Arab descent to be crowned Miss USA. She will be representing the United States this summer in the 2010 Miss Universe pageant.
