Newly crowned Miss USA 2010, Michigan beauty Rima Fakih, barely had time to wipe off her heavy pageant makeup before she became embroiled in a scandal that apparently won't cost her the title.

The 24-year-old aspiring lawyer won the 2007 "Stripper 101" pole dancing contest held by "Mojo In The Morning" at the Coliseum Gentleman's Club in Detroit, the raunchy morning show claims, and they have the pictures to prove it.

Fakih's prizes included jewelry, gift cards, adult toys, and her own at-home stripper pole (shown left).

That prize pack is nothing compared to the salary, New York City apartment, crown, jewels, and other perks Fakih took home when she became the first Arab-American Miss USA in Sunday night's pageant.

The scandal broke just hours after Fakih was crowned Miss USA 2010, but no worries says new boss/pageant owner Donald Trump, who told TMZ, "Obviously she has a great imagination but she's fully clothed and a high quality person. We back her to the hilt."

It all started shortly after "Mojo In The Morning" posted congratulations to Fakih on its Web site, then heard from Miss USA officials.

"'Mojo In The Morning' producers have been contacted by representatives of Miss Universe requesting more photographs and information regarding Miss USA['s] ... involvement in the 'Stripper 101' contest. When asked if Fakih's status as Miss USA was in danger, pageant officials would not answer," the show said in a statement.

Radio personality "Mojo" told Radaronline.com that the station was asked if it had additional photos in its possession, and revealed that it does have a few, but added that there were no plans to release them at this time.

Photos from Fakih's pole "pageant" have been on the radio show's site for the past three years, according to a statement posted on its official Web site today.

It should come as no surprise that Trump is not bothered by these provocative pole-dancing pics, he, after all, approved the racy lingerie shots, which served as the official pageant photos for all 51 Miss USA 2010 contestants.

And truth be told, Fakih, shown sliding down a pole in red short-shorts, an aqua tank, and silver peep-toe pumps for the "Mojo In The Morning" competition, is no more exposed here than she is in her official photo.

Do you think these photos are grounds for Rima Fakih to be stripped of her crown? Or do you agree with Trump? Leave a comment.
