1. Alexi Ashe Knows How to Handle a Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Taking part in a grilled cheese cooking challenge, Ashe went up against her man in an episode of Vogue’s web series Elettra’s Goodness. It was the boys against the girls and the girls were not going down without a fight, throwing garlic at the men. So, the guys won the challenge, but they had an advantage with personal chef Tolya Ashe on their team. He also happens to be Alexi’s brother.

At the end of it all, the challengers sat down and shared pet photos. Alexi noted that she and Seth share a dog named Frisbee, who they let take food from the table. Alexi states:

We’re really impressed at how high she can jump for food!

2. Alexi is a Human Rights Advocate

Graduating from Southwestern University, Alexi Ashe attained a degree in law. In fact, she’s worked for King’s County District Attorney’s office, Somaly Mam Foundation, and now AC Investment Management.

On the other hand, her new fiance Seth Meyers graduated from Northwestern … but they say opposites attract, don’t they?

In Brooklyn, Ashe is a district attorney who fights against sex trafficking. Damn, girl.

She’s definitely a passionate, hard-worker. She has even worked for the organization Human Rights First. Way to go!
