If I was not modeling I probably still be working at Whole Foods, just moving up the leadership ladder.

I guess nowadays if you don’t smoke and don’t have tattoos you’re not cool, but I take pride in the fact that I’ve never taken a puff of anything, whether cigarettes, etc, and have no tats

Favorite modeling experience so far?
My favorite modeling experience so far was the promotional video I shot at Orchard Beach, NYC

  • Francine Freeman

    He such a awesome guy, he is like a son to me! Always motivated and a go getter. I pray God will bless him abundantly! Keep making your dreams come true.

  • alex

    Hes has a very All-American look. Literal perfection. He will probably end up doing jobs like Abercrombie

  • The picture, one before last, is absolutely stunning!

  • Caitlin

    very handsome!

  • Just as I predicted Dae Na would be a top model. This one to will break top 50.

  • looool he’s one of the guys who was cut from America’s next top model cycle 20. Even though I agreed that on the show he seemed too arrogant, I have to admit clearly that he is what male models are, he looks like an ideal tall and strong model, it’s sad he didn’t make it on ANTM but I’m sure he’ll do fine in fashion

  • ardarrell

    Wow the only model on ANTM Cycle 20 with ANY model potential……however by not choosing him at least he WILL have a career unlike anyone else who wins on this contest. This kid wasn’t arrogant….he was just being real.

  • Brenton

    Whoa, that is the guy from the first episode of Americas Next Too Model! They should have sent him through!

  • Just bumped into this guy during a casting for MBFW. He’s even more handsome in person and a nice young lad. He should do well, I suspect. Best of luck, Ronald!


  • Thank God he didnt made it at ANTM for the shows stigma could break his career.. Not only he has potentil but he is very good looking <3

  • Bridget Jones

    So proud and happy for you Epps! You have your whole life ahead of you! Best of luck!


  • Crystal Haberle

    Well if Ronald has not yet gone to Greece maybe he would like to go with an old school mate/teammate some time this year!!

  • maria

  • he is very sexy and hot
