Miss Tunisia, Rim El Tounsi was crowned Miss Arab World 2010 in a beauty pageant held on December 7 in Cairo, Egypt where 18 beautiful women of Arab descent competed in the annual contest.

The pageant, which aspires to embrace the conservative nature of Arab culture.

The contest was criticized by two conservative candidates who felt uncomfortable with the excessive Western touch of the pageant:

- 21 year old Miss Oman, Al Zahraa Al Maleki pulled out off the competition. “For me, this was wrong, especially as a woman from an Arab Gulf society,” she said. “I joined with the understanding that this was a cultural event, but after three days of wearing full makeup, standing for photo shoots and learning to walk on stage, I chose to go back to my classes,” she added.

- Miss Kuwait, who was accompanied by her mother, left a few days later.
