    And then there was one.

    Rima Fakih, aka Miss Michigan, nabbed the coveted Miss USA crown on Sunday evening in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood Resort Casino.

    The 24-year-old Lebanese beauty is 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.

    The photos prompted a spirited defense from Miss USA overlord Donald Trump last week, who stated, "These pictures are pretty wild, but the girls are incredible."

    Indeed.

    Controversy or no, Fakih seems as all-American as a Miss USA can be. When asked what it felt like to win she said, "Ask me after I eat a pizza."
