Another week is winding down, so we’ll ease you into the weekend with another male mod to meet. This week Q Model’s Barrett Pall, who also moonlights as a life coach and (shocking!) personal trainer, shares his love for Gayle King’s BFF, his impressive 10-year plan, and his stint as class president. Meet Barrett…
Credits: One of the coolest jobs I’ve done was for The Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. I did the opening and pre-opening campaign, and the images were on buses, billboards, taxis, everywhere. I’ve worked with Diesel, Pump Underwear, Calvin Klein, Nike, Puma, and Adidas. I was in a video that played behind Britney Spears during the song “Drop Dead Beautiful” for her Femme Fatale world tour. I was a Ken Doll in Nicki Minaj’s “Turn Me On” Video. I was also a stripper in Magic Mike and a Faerie on True Blood.

What’s your ten year plan?
I plan to continue on the path I’m on, build my brand, get my own talk show, advocate for real change in the world when it comes to equal rights, education, and the health system. I see myself settled down with a partner, a dog or two, and traveling the world. The idea of children is still up in the air. My life mission is to leave the world a better place than how I came into it, and I have already started to do that through my YouTube channel (youtube.com/bearcrown315
