Sassy entrepreneur Lex McAllister tries to do three crazy things a day-and she encourages her employees to do the same. When one of them submitted her to be a reality TV show contestant, then, she could hardly be upset. Once chosen for "The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love," featuring pilot Jake Pavelka, McAllister looked at the show as an opportunity-though perhaps not for true love. "I went on a show called 'On the Wings of Love,' which is funny, because clearly I'm not on the wings of love-I'm on the wings of career," said the 26-year-old president of Lexicon Works, a Downtown public relations and marketing firm. "I was looking to meet good people and have a good experience." She did. (Getting through only the first rose ceremony was plenty enough time for her.) Now, aside from running her company, the high-energy, Harley Davidson-riding Hilliard resident (who graduated from Bishop Ready High School and Marymount Manhattan College) is launching a female-empowerment radio show called "No Excuses." She's also holding quarterly "No Excuses" events with themes like "Handy in the Home." "Live your life," she preaches, "with absolutely no excuses."

My greatest passion is: Powerful women
My biggest annoyance is: Laziness
I most admire: My mother and father. They are the epitome of no excuses. My mother is launching a jewelry line in her 50s while also working a full-time job and being an amazing grandma. My father was the guy who made it a point to say, "You can be a beautiful woman in a man's industry."
My favorite place to be is: Anywhere with a glass of wine
For my last supper, I would choose: Pork chops, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes
The last thing that made me laugh is: My brother doing an impression of Chris Farley

Hobby: Riding my motorcycle
Book: "Eat, Pray, Love"
Band: Pink Floyd
City: New Orleans
Restaurant: Lately, I have been loving Fado's. My Irish people!
Holiday: My birthday, which should be a holiday!
Sound: Loud engines. I feel the most at ease when I hear a loud engine. That's why my Harley's my therapy.
Childhood memory: Being with all of the family at Buckeye Lake on the pontoon boat.
Saying: Courtesy of my Grandpa: "Elbow grease accomplishes anything."
