The following are highlights from a recent interview with recent WWE Tough Enough contestant and former Miss USA Rima Fakih:

Rima on transition from being Miss USA to trying out for WWE Tough Enough: “One of the things I like to do is break stereotypes and let people know that you can be beautiful and tough at the same time. It was a great adventure. I have to say that coming to the Tough Enough was not only a highlight of my reign but my Journey as Rima Fakih.”

Rima on Miss USA pageant organizer’s reaction to trying out for WWE Tough Enough: “The reason, I think, was because I hosted Raw a couple of times and just thought that even though my organization and our (Miss Universe pageant) president, Miss Paula Shugart, was terrified when I told her ‘I can do it! I can do Tough Enough.’ Everyone was kind of afraid for me.”

Rima on entering the WWE Tough Enough house: “When they find out you’re Miss USA, you’re going to be looked at as ‘What are you doing here? You’ll be like the piñata.’ I told them ‘Great! I love the challenge!’ … I just wanted to prove myself in the ring. Let my actions speak for me.”

Rima on her future with WWE and recent talks with Triple H: “Well I have been in talks with Triple H very recently. So I’ll definitely keep you updated.”
