The 24-year-old Lebanese beauty is thought to be the first Arab-American to ever hold the title. Fakih was among the 51 contestants who participated in a controversial photo shoot showing this year’s hopefuls in nothing more than lingerie. [eonline]
Mabrouk to Rima!
I agree Mark..hotttt!

Not the first arab-american to win it … she’s the first Arab-American MUSLIM to win the title … first being, Julie Hayek, also Lebanese, but Christian, in 1983.
Sorry I’m a little late with this reply, but Baby Girl, Julie Hayek is NOT of Lebanese decent. I know a few right-wing bloggers threw that claim out there and a few mainstream news outlets jumped on the same bandwagon, but it was shot down by Ms. Hayek herself . . .
