Ronnie Kroell

Ronnie Kroell became an instant international celebrity by competing in Bravo’s Make Me a Super Model where he walked away the runner-up, but won the larger prize the “fan favorite” award. Ronnie is beloved by all ages, genders, sexualities, races, and ethnicities for his gracious goodness and deep vulnerability. Well before the world knew of his sweet soulfulness via Make Me a Super Model, he was working for Human Rights in his hometown of Chicago, educating through the arts on matters of diversity and multiculturalism.

Since Make Me a Super Model, Ronnie has balanced a successful modeling career in New York City doing runway work for Philip Sparks, Loris Diran, Malan Breton, and Richie Rich; he’s been the featured cover model for several magazines, including Instinct, Next, and Playgirl; continued work as a human rights activist; and is the founder of Pulse Network and Pulse Blog. Ronnie has transitioned from modeling to acting, starring in several movies in 2011, including Eating Out – Drama Camp and Into the Lion’s Den

Look for Ronnie this holiday season as the Ghost of Christmas Past in the movie Scrooge & Marley, a modern-day variation on Charles Dickens’ classic story of the holidays, A Christmas Carol. Recounted from a gay sensibility, with heart, comedy and music, the magic of Dickens’ timeless tale of a man’s redemption at the holidays—thanks to the help of three ghostly spirits— comes alive from a fresh perspective that will appeal to audiences of every persuasion.

Ronnie believes that anything is possible and challenges all those he interacts with to never give up on their dreams and to simply be themselves. Without the support of his loving family and friends, his mentors, and his incredible fans, he would not be where he is today, and   he is so thankful as he looks forward to the adventures ahead. One thing is for sure, wherever Ronnie goes – he goes with his whole heart.

I knew the first time I saw Ronnie on Make Me a Supermodel, he was destined for greatness. He had the "IT" factor. I have followed his career ever since then. And have been lucky enough to meet him and get to know him. And just listening to him in this interview, he is so eloquent, and something so soothing, and comforting in his voice, you can't help but be drawn into his words.

The interview was great. And once again, Ronnie's wisdom shines! I am always amazed listening him to speak - he is an old soul, wise beyond his years. Thanks Robert Hammond, for sharing Ronnie with the listening world!
