Model of the Moment
Everything you want to know about Ryan Ball.
How have you found working with Tarocash?
Pretty chilled today, great environment, everyone’s friendly. Couldn’t ask for a better crew really!
What have been your favourite sights you’ve seen in Sydney?
I did the Bondi to Bronte and just chilled round there which was really nice. Had a few drinks with a friend. Then on Sunday I went to Sydney Opera House which was nice and just chilled in the park and relaxed. I’ve still got plenty of stuff to do!
What are your plans for the rest of your time here?
Definitely want to go to Byron Bay and learn how to surf. That’s definitely up there. I want to do a skydiving course and get qualified so I can go anywhere in the world and just jump out of a plane.
What is one thing you want to do before leaving Australia?
Skydiving, surfing, definitely! I wouldn’t mind going to the Great Barrier Reef. That’s definitely up there too.
What’s your favourite city and why?
It’s got to be Barcelona. You’re by the beach and it’s got a great atmosphere. The city’s just beautiful. Good nightlife, great food. The culture is amazing. I’ve been so many times and I never get bored of it.
Ultimate holiday destination?
I went to South East Asia around Christmas which was amazing. Definitely around that area. Vietnam. I’m yet to do the Philippines but I really want to go.
Best place to take a date?
Normally I like to do something fun. Most people like to go to dinner and stuff. I like to do something active and break the ice. Maybe rollerskating or rock climbing. Something fun!
What’s your favourite way to workout?
I think I like doing classes now. I like doing HIIT Training and stuff like that. I prefer to have an instructor because I’m not very motivated. I need someone to tell me what to do.
How long have you played rugby for?
I’ve stopped now. I started playing when I was 12 years old and I stopped when I was 22 due to work. I got absolutely battered and I was getting black eyes. I missed out on a few modelling jobs and my agent said “is it worth it?” I was going to start again in January but then my friend started playing again and in his first game back he snapped his leg and dislocated his ankle. That put me off going back to playing rugby! I do miss it. I miss it a lot.
I don’t really have one. I’m a big fan of Leonardo DiCaprio. I watched Inception the other night, Wolf of Wall Street. Anything with him in it pretty much.
Best bar or pub you’ve been to?
There’s a bar/restaurant/club in Brixton in London called Blues Kitchen. Which is really, really nice.
Best advice you’ve ever received?
Probably just be yourself. Don’t try to be what other people make you out to be.
What are you looking forward to next year?
Going back to South East Asia. Going with my friends and travelling around. Seeing more countries. Experiencing new things!
Three words that describe you…
Fun, weird and interesting.
