Where Aren't They Now: 2

You might recognize Alexandria ("Alex") from a slew of diet pill commercials she starred in during the mid-90s. She looks a little different in the spots, but the smile and the freckles are a pretty good giveaway.

Alex's real goal had always been to go into pharmaceuticals, but she grew into her own down-home beauty and let an agent sweet-talk her into delaying college plans for a chance at something bigger.

She did eventually go back to college after the TrimItz company went under, having squirreled away enough to attend a community college. Her passion for medicine had mostly fizzled, but she became a capable nurse's aide. She's the one they send in when an old man is ready to pass on-- they usually go a little easier when they see a smile like Alex's.
