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.
