Personal life

Fakih was born in Srifa, a small city in the Jabal Amel region of Southern Lebanon, to a Shi'a Muslim family. As a young child, she lived in the village of Souk El Gharb in Mount Lebanon, and attended St. Rita's, a Catholic school near Beirut. In 1993, her parents, Hussein and Nadia Fakih, moved their family to New York in order to escape effects of the Lebanese Civil War.

In 2016, she married CEO of XO record label company Wassim 'Sal' Slaiby in a Royal Lebanese wedding. The couple now resides in Los Angeles and have three children together, Rima, Joseph and Amira.

Miss USA

Fakih competed in and won Miss Michigan and Miss USA in 2010. Her win at the Miss USA 2010 pageant was monumental for the Arab community as she became the first Arab immigrant women to win the title.

As holder of the Miss USA title, Fakih then represented the United States in the 2010 Miss Universe pageant, held at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on August 23. Fakih did not place as a semi-finalist and was the first Miss USA since Shauntay Hinton, Miss USA 2002, to not place at the Miss Universe pageant.
