Alexis Jones was born and raised in Austin, Texas, with four older brothers. She received her bachelor's degree in international relations and Spanish and most recently finished her master's degree in communications management, both from the University of Southern California. While at USC, Jones hosted a college television show (for three years) called "Doing It for Reel," where she interviewed celebrities on the red carpet of movie premieres and press junkets.

Jones is a motivational speaker who works one-on-one with young girls to build confidence and self-esteem. She just created an empowerment/non-profit organization for young girls called "I Am That Girl." While still in school, she worked at Fox Sports and interned with ESPN (mostly because she is a self-described "sports junky"). She also founded and reported for a website that covered the 2005 USC football season.

Her hobbies include hanging out with family and friends, writing (she's currently working on an empowerment book for girls titled "Comatose Barbie") and watching college football. She describes herself as contagiously energetic, fiercely competitive and resilient. She has traveled to Costa Rica, Spain, China and Morocco and has hiked 150 miles to the base of Mt. Everest. She is a member of the Bel Air Presbyterian Church. Jones enjoys playing volleyball, flag football, soccer and has just completed a triathlon.

Jones is currently single and resides in Beverly Hills, California. Her birth date is July 6, 1983.[1]


Alexis quickly got along with her tribe from the start, and she was initially on the right side of the numbers. However, she was involved in Mary Sartain's blindside, who Joel Anderson wanted gone because of how close she and Mikey Bortone were and how controlling Mikey was trying to be. The next time Airai went to Tribal Council in "That's Baked, Barbecued and Fried!", Alexis and Jason Siska stayed loyal to Mikey and were caught off guard when Joel blindsided Mikey instead of voting off the weaker Chet Welch.

After the tribe swap, Alexis remained on Airai with Jason, Kathy Sleckman, and Natalie Bolton, and she was excited to have Jonathan Penner, Parvati Shallow, James Clement, and Eliza Orlins join them. The Favorites gave the fans a lot of advice and renovated the disastrous Airai camp. Airai would never have to go to Tribal Council, allowing Alexis to make it to the merge, but not without finding herself in Parvati's new alliance along with Natalie. Once the merge hit, those three would reunite with Cirie Fields and Amanda Kimmel to form the Black Widow Brigade.

Alexis was in a good position thanks to her alliance, despite Amanda initially wanting to vote her out since she became quick friends with Amanda's de-facto boyfriend Ozzy Lusth, but that was no longer a problem when the Black Widow Brigade, but minus Amanda and with the help of Jason blindside Ozzy in "I Promise...". The girls continued to dominate the game until the final 6. Erik Reichenbach won the Immunity Challenge on Day 33, meaning a member of the Black Widow Brigade would have to be voted out. Alexis, Natalie, and Erik all agreed that Amanda was a threat that needed to go, and Cirie decided to go with them, not wanting to force a tie. Amanda desperately try to get people to vote Alexis off because of her chances of winning at Final Tribal Council, further worried about her since Alexis is a motivational speaker. The majority of the votes were cast against Amanda, but unfortunately for Alexis, Amanda gleefully revealed she had a Hidden Immunity Idol and played it, thus Alexis was voted off with two votes against her. She finished in 6th place.

At the Final Tribal Council, Alexis asked finalists Parvati about what made her a better role model for young girls than Amanda, and asked Amanda about what part of her game was genuine. She voted for Parvati to win.
