Muscle model Brian Andraos has never competed or modeled commercially. However, the 6′, 205 lbs., 24 year old is says he’s being inundated with calls from agents, photographers, producers and promoters. “It’s really crazy,” Brian exclaims. “I just love training and working on my physique. Right now, I am in the gym twice a day, every day of the week. Really, I am so driven to gain some serious muscle and create something different.” Brian continues he’s training for Musclemania® Universe Physique Championships in June which will be his very first time on stage. “Its going to be wild, man!”
’14 Model Universe Top 5 finalist Melissa Darmawan thanks everyone who has supported her along the way. She says, “So grateful for the experience to spend my fitness modeling career in the US last year and to meet so many great people. I have done more shoots than I thought I would have between here in Australia and the U.S. which I’m quite touched by. My dream of being a Model by spirit and by career has come true year after year and thank you for your words of encouragement to never give up and for all the messages of how I’ve helped you along the way.”
Since winning her first and only model competition, the lovely Michelle Berthelot has been pursuing her acting and modeling career in Hollywood. But recently, the 24 year old former Model Universe Champion returned to her native Louisiana to win the Miss Louisiana USA beauty pageant. "Michelle lost all her pictures, her crowns, her trophies, her dresses - everything, including her home and her grandfather,” mother Karen Berthelot said. “This pageant was a kind of ‘rebirth' and was quite fulfilling.” She will now move on to compete at the Miss Universe in Las Vegas in April.
