Friend of the Week: Model and Activist Ronnie Kroell

This week's Friend of the Week is Ronnie Kroell, who you'll surely recognize from Bravo's Make Me A Supermodel. On the show, Ronnie had a romance (let's drop this "bromance" BS already, OK?) with a straight married wannabe model named Ben. More importantly, Ronnie took off his clothes often and always maintained his adurrable smile.

But GuyStyle really loves Ronnie because of who he is. Since the show, Ronnie has been taken on by New York Model Management, and he has used his public platform to campaign on behalf of Hillary Clinton and, now, Barack Obama. Ronnie is also an activist for GLBT equality, and in his native Chicago he runs a nonprofit organization called 4+1 Productions, which "bridges diversity through the arts." A big heart, ambition and intelligence all help to make Ronnie our Friend of the Week. (His yummy bod doesn't hurt, either!)
