While most Americans might not recognize The Real Housewives of Melbourne reunion host Alex Perry, he is something of a celebrity in his home country of Australia. While you might be used to our classic reunion host, Andy Cohen, and the spectacle that is his head ping-ponging between battling Housewives, Alex Perry and the ladies of Melbourne never fail to disappoint. Read below to for all you should know about his long list of non-hosting accolades before the next reunion airs.
1. He's a world-renowned fashion designer.
According to the fashion designer's Facebook, Alex Perry is "Undoubtedly Australia's premier couturier, Alex Perry has added a new level of glamour to our fashion industry with his breathtaking gowns." Seriously, there probably isn't a starlet you can name that isn't a "Perry Girl." Oh yeah, he has his very own name for his fashionista fans. His work has appeared on the covers of every major fashion magazine - little publications such as Vogue or Marie Claire. Suffice it to say, Alex Perry is the real deal.

Celebrities and models love his clothing. Everyone from Linda Evangelista and GIgi Hadid to Jennifer Lopez and Miranda Kerr have worn his clothing on and off the runway.
3. Before hosting, he was judging.
He has judged for international spin-offs of the American reality TV series America's Next Top Model including versions held in Australia and Asia.
4. He was a contestant on Celebrity Master Chef Australia.
And it's clear that he loves baked goods!
5. He loves to work out.
Things you won't see Alex without? A shaved head, a pair of sunglasses, and a buff bod.
6. He has his own hotel and apartment complex.
After mastering clothing design and work as a television personality, Alex Perry’s next pursuit might be interior design with the opening of his first hotel and apartment complex in Australia in 2015.
