Leah Darrow is an international speaker, professional model and contestant on the reality TV show America’s Next Top Model who impacts people’s lives by challenging her audiences to live according to principles taught by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
In this video, this former contestant on the reality TV show America’s Top Model was interviewed before she spoke to a group of 15,000 Filipino youth on her Real Love Revolution tour. In the interview, she shares her feelings on modern entertainment and the lack of morality in both the media and in American Culture. She thinks America is providing other countries a disservice. Instead of using our influence as a role model to do good as we should, we are exposing our corrupt morals and bringing other countries down with us. She explains that too often we use people and love things when it should be the other way around: we should love people and use things.
When asked about reality television, she explains that there is nothing “real” about it. Leah tells of her experience on a reality tv show where the producers and cameramen had no respect for human dignity. Doors were taken off hinges. The participants were given no privacy, even for things like using the restroom or taking showers. She likens America’s infatuation with reality television to the entertainment found in the days of Roman Colosseum and suggests that we need to turn away from it. Even though the people portrayed aren’t being abused quite as extremely, their lives are being torn apart, and they’re being criticized, laughed at and made fun of. The destruction of human lives should not be entertainment.
Leah is a positive person and believes we should use our influences to the betterment of others. When she speaks to her audiences of all ages, the message she wants to convey is the same: you should never let anyone tell you that you cannot change. Leah encourages listeners to seek Christ, knowing you will find Him, and shares that whether you believe it or not, He is our end. God offers us hope that we can make changes for the better. She wants to teach others to make right choices, and to understand that unlike what the current culture and media may portray, what God offers does not put limits on your choices. Choosing what is modest, good and right is never the wrong choice. Other frequent topics found in Leah’s speeches are chastity, morality and mercy. She’s doing her part to change her world for the better.
