Like so many other beautiful fitness women, Michelle Berthelot just didn't know what she had going for her. The 21 year old Louisiana college student was training at a university fitness center and caught the eye of one of the trainers who suggested she consider a sports model competition. So, with some more encouragement, Michelle saved up the cash, grabbed her Mom and Grannie and drove to Miami Beach for the 2005 Model Universe. Her stunning beauty, attractive shape and sweet disposition radiated across the stage and helped her capture the Universe title.
