The new Miss USA is already queen of a new scandal just two days after winning her crown.

Miss Michigan Rima Fakih apparently won a very different kind of contest in 2007. Us magazine reports she won a Detroit radio show's "Stripper 101" competition, held at a gentlemen's club.

TMZ has pictures of Fakih doing a provocative dance, but without taking any clothes off.

In that contest the 24-year-old won jewelry, adult toys and a stripper pole.

Pageant officials didn't say whether her crown is in jeopardy, thought they've asked for more pictures.
