As the character Elle McFeast, Gorr performed in a number of award winning television shows, including Andrew Denton's Live and Sweaty. She was chosen by Denton to host Live and Sweaty after his retirement from the show. As McFeast she also created the TV specials Breasts, Sex, Guys and Videotape, Portrait of a Power Pussy and the television show Elle McFeast Live. Gorr made the transition to appearing as herself on camera with the Marie Clare "What Women Want" forums. She also hosted and helped create the televised IF awards for film in Australia. In 2001 a portrait of her, called "Excelle – Libbi Gorr", by painter Margarita Georgiadis, was entered in the Archibald Prize for portraiture. The painting was hung as a finalist. A photographic portrait by Petrea Hicks was also hung the following year.
