After Alex revealed that he was wearing a shirt featuring Andy and his own face Photoshopped onto the body of the WWHL host's real BFF John Mayer that had "best friends" written across it, Andy admitted that he was "getting a little crush" on the Below Deck Mediterranean deckhand during that episode's After Show (clip above).
Of course, Alex took that as the utmost compliment when The Daily Dish caught up with him over the phone on July 15. "I wasn’t surprised after the shirt I had on and us kind of bantering back and forth," Alex said about hearing Andy was "getting a little crush" on him. "I was flattered."
Alex said his WWHL: @ Home debut with fellow Below Deck Med crew member Hindrigo "Kiko" Lorran couldn't have gone any better. "I had a blast. I had a good time," he recalled. "I think we just joked around the whole time. It was fun, though."
Alex said that he was glad to see his T-shirt was such a hit with Andy. "I was trying to tell Andy, me and him are like gonna be best friends, so might as well make a shirt," Alex explained. "So, I think we’re working towards that right now, definitely after that episode."
"I think we’re on the verge of being best friends," Alex added.
