  • The life of Alex Apple

    Alex Apple grew up in Nashville, Tennessee where he developed a love for the Tennessee Volunteers and Tennessee Titans. His sister, Emily, hardly got any air time in family home videos as Alex has been a talker and entertainer since leaving the womb. For example, he ran out of the sanctuary at the end of his baptism and used to ask his parents every Easter why the easter bunny did not get him what he was praying for.

     

    After graduating from TCU, Alex went to work as a broadcaster, reporting from the northeast. He covered the 2016 election for WCAX news with a short respite in the middle: filming Stranded with a Million Dollars. Alex Apple has been nominated for an Emmy and published works with Politico, the Dallas Morning News and the Associated Press.

     

    Alex loves donating his time and working with youth. He has stayed involved with Special Olympics and coaches AAU basketball for East Coast Power, based just outside of Philadelphia.

     

    Alex lives with his girlfriend, Hannah McDonald, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and plans to use any winnings from MTV's Stranded with a Million Dollars as a financial foundation for life and as a way to jump start his career in real estate investment.

     

    Alex Apple has also served as a radio show host, television host and covered sports for both Fox and Yahoo.

    Laughter was a great reprieve

    There's no question surviving was hard, but a good laugh with good people was always a welcome mental break.

    Walking into camp two like...

    Down time

    Taveuni, Fiji

    When the show airs, there is constant action, but each hour is representative of four days.

    Alex Apple MTV Stranded with a Million Dollars

    Hallelujah, we got fire!

    Learning the rules

    When we first arrived on the beach, we didn't know what the game was. The tablet messages brought us that info at camp one.

    When trying to survive for 40 days on an island, it's hard to take the beauty of the land for granted, especially when you're starving

    First look at the $cash$

    Taveuni, Fiji

    I didn't go into the game thinking about the money or cash, but when you see $1 million in cash right in front of you, that's quite a powerful reminder.

    Waving goodbye

    Taveuni, Fiji

    Whenever someone would leave the show, it was sad for them, but you knew in the back of your mind, you were one step closer to the money.

    I don't even like coconut

    Taveuni, Fiji

    In regular life, I don't even hardly eat coconut, but when you're "Stranded with a Million Dollars" but no food, coconuts start to look good.

    If you shot your flare and were evacuated, you were taken off in a helicopter, your shot at the money...gone.
