what the hell happened to Alex McLeod, “host” of Joe Millionaire?

what the hell happened to Alex McLeod, “host” of Joe Millionaire?
For some viewers, the biggest mystery surrounding Joe Millionaire was where the hell the host, Alex McLeod, was. As Entertainment Weekly points out, “In the six episodes leading up to the Fox hit’s finale, she barely mustered five minutes of screen time–total.” So where was the former Trading Spaces host? Even she doesn’t know. Of her job introducing the necklace ceremonies, Alex says, “I had no idea that would be my only role on the show. … The way they produced my role was a bit stilted.” Also, she has no sympathy for the women on the show: “They had a private butler, private chef, private plane. What in the world is there to bitch about?”
+ also: Joe Millionaire reunion/follow-up show airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET.
