Reality Television Star Gets Totally Naked for Playgirl

It's not every day that a reality television star actually admits he wants us to see him naked.

Remember Ronnie Kroell, the openly gay runner-up on season one of Make Me a Supermodel, the Bravo runway competition show hosted by Tyson?

Well, Ronnie doesn't have a sex tape, but...

The Chicago-born piece of meat hotness, who was crowned fan favorite during his run on Supermodel, is on the June cover of Playgirl. And we're happy to report that he's no Levi Johnston not shy! Sure, there's the standard cheesy skin-mag pic of him in a wet—and very see-through—pair of underwear, but there's also at least one completely nude full frontal shot.

Even though Kroell admits that the Playgirl shoot was "nerve-wracking," he was "naked all the time" on Supermodel, "but that was censored." He hasn't heard from Tyson yet, but says, "I'm looking forward to the phone call."

Kroell only agreed to pose for the mag if he had complete creative control, including picking photographer Lope Navo. And being the Good Samaritan that he is, Kroell is donating proceeds from the sale of autographed copies of the mag to local gay charities.

So it's no surprise that the nudie pictorial comes out just in time for Kroell to do this month's gay pride circuit. He'll be in West Hollywood on Sunday at Chad Hudson's Pride at Palihouse event after serving as a co-grand marshal of Boston's pride parade on Saturday.

And for all you boys hoping to score a date with Kroell, you can forget about it. He's got a boyfriend, actor Taylor Proffitt. "Taylor loves the photos," Kroell said, adding, "He helped in areas that mattered the most during the 40-degree day of the shoot—if you know what I mean."
