Male Model, Actor, and Host Darryl Chambers is a native of Valley, AL and has been in the
Entertainment Industry since 2009. At the age of 30, Darryl has been fortunate enough to work

Some of his bigger acting gigs include the Independent film “XXI O’Day” where he plays the role of “Ronald” who the opposite of Jonica “BLU” Boothe from Bad Girls Club.
How did you get into modeling/acting?
After modeling for a couple of years, I decided that I wanted to give something else in entertainment a try, so acting was next on my list to try. Acting was nothing that was on my radar to do either, but I knew that it would be a challenging, wild adventure to tackle, so I went for it. I began doing strictly background work in order to see how the industry, being on set, and behind the scenes worked. Once learning a lot of different things about the acting world I began working on a few indie films and that led to some commercials as well as music videos etc.
