Hollywood TV host; Robin Roberts is showing off her “Game Changers of the Year” in a new TV special. Game Changers With Robin Roberts features the host talking to some of the most influential people of 2016. The Good Morning America host spoke to plus-size model Ashley Graham, who opened up about her early life in Lincoln, Nebraska.
“I was called the girl who was pretty for a big girl, the fat model,” she told Roberts. Not only has Graham changed the shape of modeling — but she also has her very own Barbie doll. “It was important to me because little girls need to know that perfection doesn’t exist,” she told Roberts as she demonstrated how the dolls thighs touch.
Speaking to Inside Edition about the special, Roberts said: “Ashley Graham! Oh! I love this woman. And I saw how women of all shapes and sizes, when I was with her in her home in Nebraska, run up to her and embracing her and thank her for just this revolution that she started.”
Michael Phelps was also featured as a “Game Changer” after becoming the most decorated Olympian of all time earlier this year. And that wasn’t the only memorable moment of 2016, as he married his longtime love Nicole Johnson and the couple had a baby boy, Boomer.
She also spoke to Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda about his breakout year and massively popular hip-hop musical. Miranda took Roberts around his Washington Heights neighborhood where he grew up and how it influenced his career.
Also interviewed are Chance the Rapper, as well as Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the whistleblower who brought attention to the Flint, Michigan, water crisis.
