Rima Fakih of Dearborn, Michigan, beat out 50 other women to take the 2010 Miss USA title last night.
Fakih, a Lebanese immigrant, told pageant organizers her family celebrates both Muslim and Christian faiths. She moved to the United States as a baby and was raised in New York, where she attended a Catholic school. Her family moved to Michigan in 2003.
Rima is said to be the second Lebanese American to win the crown behind Julie Hayek in 1983.
