One of the most sought-after jokesmiths in the entertainment industry, two-time Emmy Award winner Bruce Vilanch has become a recognizable face in his own right, thanks to the feature-length documentary Get Bruce! (1999) and his one-time stint as a regular on Hollywood Squares (1998), for which he also served as head writer. Known for his eclectic eyewear and collection of unique T-shirts, he began as a child model for Lane Bryant, but when his initial efforts as an actor came to naught, he became an entertainment writer for the Chicago Tribune instead. Impressed by his review of her cabaret performance in 1970, Bette Midler hired him to punch up her act where he gave birth to Midler’s famed Sophie Tucker jokes. He later moved to Los Angeles where he wrote for variety shows like the original Donny and Marie and The Brady Bunch Hour (both ABC) and provided material for Richard Pryor, Lily Tomlin and Joan Rivers. He has maintained his connection with Midler through the years, working on such projects as the feature Divine Madness (1980) and the TV special Bette Midler—Diva Las Vegas (HBO, 1997), as well as writing for her short-lived but lively sitcom, Bette! (CBS, 2000). He made his feature debut as a dress manufacturer in Mahogany (1975), starring Diana Ross, and also contributed material to her live act. Vilanch began contributing to Academy Awards telecasts in 1989, collaborating with the likes of Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg and David Letterman, and graduated to head writer in 2000. He has roasted celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor and President Clinton.

Global audiences were first introduced to this handsome mid-westerner on season one of Bravo’s Make Me a Super Model. Ronnie walked away the runner-up, but with the larger prize—winning the “Fan Favorite,” beloved by all ages, genders, sexualities, races, ethnicities, for his gracious goodness. Well before the world knew of Ronnie’s sweet soulfulness via MMASM, Ronnie was working in human rights in his hometown of Chicago, educating through the arts on matters of diversity and multi-culturalism. Since MMASM, Ronnie has balanced his successful modeling career in NYC—runway work for Philip Sparks, Loris Diran, Malan Breton, Richie Rich and featured cover model for both Instinct and Next magazines, and of course Playgirl June 2010 issue!—with his continued work as a human-rights activist, spiritual healer, and founder of the Pulse Network.
