Alexi Panos is a Greek-American television celebrity, actress, model, author, designer, builder, producer and philanthropist well known for her HGTV show “RUN MY MAKEOVER” and her appearances as a co-host of SNY's popular sports trivia show "Beer Money".

Alexi co-wrote a book with her mother called "Watch Me" in 2006, a collaboration about finding the courage and drive to make what you want out of your life.
During her many roles as host, Alexi found a knack and love for creating and producing on air and web content. She produced the web travel series "Ultimate Quest", and is currently producing several other series for both web and TV.
Panos co founded the non-profit "E.P.I.C." (Everyday People Initiating Change), with friend Tennille Amor, after her music tour with Ja Rule landed her in Africa. It was there she noticed a severe gap in the way people lived and decided to do something about it. E.P.I.C. first project was the Ripple Project, which provides clean, sustainable bore-hole water wells in rural areas throughout Tanzania. The Ripple Project has drilled 6 wells to date, and "E.P.I.C." prides itself on it's grassroots, slow and steady approach to sustainable development. Both Alexi and her partner Tennille stay in Africa each year for about a month to follow up in the villages they drill in with a full hygiene and sanitation program, and stay locally with the people to ensure community cooperation with each project.
In the summer of 2010, "E.P.I.C." rolled out it's Pedals to the People program, where the charity provides bicycles to villages that are far removed from main town centers.
Alexi and Tennille are both Quiksilver Women's Ambassadors through their work with "E.P.I.C.", and the charity receives 3% of profits from QSW's Eco-Friendly Line of Tee's. In 2010, JetBlue rolled out it's "Be True" campaign, featuring Alexi and her work with "E.P.I.C." Early in 2010, Alexi was asked to speak at the TEDxCalgary event
"E.P.I.C." donates 100% of all donations to their projects.
