(Newser) – Another year, another Miss USA, another scandal? Maybe. Depends on how long it takes for the buzz to shift from the fact that Michigan's Rima Fakih is the first Arab-American to wear the crown to the fact that she won an entirely different competition in 2007—a stripper contest. TMZ reports that she walked away with "jewelry, gift cards, adult toys, a stripper pole for home use" and a bra stuffed with singles after clinching first place in the Stripper 101 contest thrown by a Detroit radio show. View tons of photo evidence here.
