Amazing Gal of the Month - Smartasses Magazine

Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentRima Fakih Bio – Smartasses Magazine Rima Fakih ريما فقيه (born September 22, 1985) is a Lebanese-American actress, model, and winner of the 2010 Miss USA title. Fakih was born in Srifa, a small city in the Jabal Amel region of Southern Lebanon, to a Shi’a Muslim family, and attended St. Rita’s Catholic school near Beirut. She has a sister and two brothers. She graduated from Henry Ford Community College, and went on to earn degrees in economics and business management from the University of Michigan–Dearborn. In 1993, her parents moved to New York to escape effects of the Lebanese Civil War. In New York, Fakih’s family felt they were subjected to vandalism following the September 11, 2001, attacks, and moved to Dearborn, Michigan in 2003. Fakih and her family are Muslim, but also celebrate Christianity.

Prior to winning the Miss USA title, Fakih worked as a sales associate at the Detroit Medical Center. She competed in her first pageant when she was nineteen, placing fourth runner-up at Miss Wayne County, a preliminary pageant for Miss Michigan in the Miss America system. She also competed in three smaller international pageants. As Miss USA 2010, Fakih represented the state of Michigan, having previously won the 2010 Miss Michigan USA pageant. She is widely believed to be the first Lebanese American, the first Arab American and the first Muslim to win the Miss USA title. Fakih competed on WWE Tough Enough and was eliminated in week four. In March of 2011, she was named as an Honorable Mention on Smart Mark Radio’s Top 25 Female Wrestlers of All Time List. Fakih also appears in the movie Real Steel, starring Hugh Jackman, and competed in season three of Dancing With The Stars with professional dancer Raed Murad, where she placed fifth. In 2015, Fakih appeared on the television series, Nessyane.

During and after the Miss USA pageant, Fakih’s religious and ethnic identity became the subject of widespread discussion as many Arab Americans and Muslims felt she did not properly represent their religion. Muslim scholar Ghazal Omid wrote “No Muslim woman can call herself a Muslim and be on stage with her bikini”. On the subject of identity, Fakih was quoted as saying “I’d like to say I’m American first, and I am an Arab-American, I am Lebanese-American, and I am Muslim-American.”

Why we think she’s hot:

Quite frankly, when Rima Fakih won the 2010 Miss USA contest, for us, it was elementary as soon as the opening introductions that a landslide victory was nothing short of inevitable. Fakih just has an intangible allure- a smile that ignites a room with captivating radiance, and it doesn’t take a diploma from the University of Michigan–Dearborn to see that she not only thrives on the fruits of that beguilement, but also digs breaking the mold and being a rebel. Truth be told, we always felt a certain vibe about Fakih during her thirteen-month reign under the tiara, to where it almost seemed as if she were a bit of a caged lion, just dying to cease biting her tongue and start cutting loose. She’s passionate, competitive, and indeed opinionated. As much as her beauty may be the proverbial cake, it’s really her attitude that adds lots and lots of icing.
