Alex from Target Is Not as Hot as My High School Crush BrianMadeleine Davies11/14/14 5:30pm8552EditPromoteGo to permalink Alex from Target—hot or not hot? Ellen says he's hot. The New York Times says he's hot. We are not saying whether or not he's hot because he is a SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD child and we are adults and also because we haven't decided yet. One thing that's for sure, though: he is not as hot as my high school crush Brian.
