Although you don't really know much about Tom or Louis...
Spencer, for his faults, is well educated and was working as a broker.
Amy, before TOWIE was a beautician and I think owns a beautician. Therefore she is an entrepreneur and contributing to society.
I don't think they are actually the worst role models in the world.
Tom has courted the press for years a d is desperate to be a "celeb" as evidenced by his bbc reality documentary... He is exactly the same as child's and Matthews except he also does sport.
I'm sure they're perfectly nice people although I don't really pay attention to their respective programmes. I only know what I hear about from friends, magazines etc. I just think sortspeople are more interesting and good role models for people. Maybe I didn't give the best examples though.
