Is there a particular reason why candidates don't have to be a legislator to become president in the U.S? Whereas in the UK candidates have to be an MP?

The Presidential branch of Government is separate to The Congress / Senate, not a function of it.

The Prime Minister is leader of the House of Parliament, so must sit within it.
