[Video] Miss United States 2012 wins gold in BJJ tournament


Former Miss United States winner Whitney Miller is trading her crown for a gi as she embarks on a mission to earn her black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

The beauty pageant queen may look like your stereotypical fragile girly girl, but watch the video below and you'll see Miss Miller is clearly no push-over, and appears fiercely competitive and ambitious. In this video, produced by Onnit, Whitney competes in her first BJJ tournament and shows she's much more than just a pretty face.

"This is my journey to earning my jiu-jitsu black belt," explains Whitney. "You just have to keep yourself going and keep pushing and getting through all of those challenges... You have to be 110% yourself - no fakeness."
