UPDATE 1/6/13: While we totally dug Alexis on the Season 18 premiere, with her sweet smile and great dress, Juan Pablo didn't, and she was sent home at the first Rose Ceremony. Are you surprised?

ORIGINAL STORY 10/9/13: 
If Juan Pablo Galavis’s future wife was chosen based on hotness, then Alexis Morgado would have a good chance at winning. And hey, we don’t know what JPG’s jam is, so maybe he will just choose the hottest girl and they’ll bailar off into the sunset, singing karaoke while they go.

Reality Steve did a little digging on the 24-year-old from Tampa, Florida, and it sounds like she’s got a lot more to offer than just her pretty face. The University of South Florida grad got her Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications/Journalism in 2011 — and had even graduated from high school as her class salutatorian. After school, she scored a pretty cushy coupla gigs.

She works in communications for Flayco, a company which makes flavor extracts, food colorings, juices, sauces, and seasonings. Oh, and it just happens to be owned by her family. When she’s not slinging spices, Alexis cheers on the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team, enjoys running, eating healthy, and was once a contestant on The Price is Right!

For more information on Alexis, check out her Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest pages. On the latter, she has such pages as “Thinspiration,” “Little ones :),” and “<3.” And while we wish Alexis well in her journey for <3, RS says that she won’t find it with Juan Pablo — the spoiler guru says that Lexi was eliminated as of October 2.
