Life around #AlexOLoughlin – a week in review (23 – 29 October 2016)

Some great fan encounters with Alex this week. And some great pictures from the set, showing us Alex as Steve in light coloured dress pants. Did it really take more than 6 seasons for wardrobe to finally get him wearing something like this?

In any case thank you to everybody who took pictures and posted them and to all the usual scouts who found them.


Life on the Set:

GordonandLiz Fahey  Noisy outside. I’m going to bed now. Can catch this episode on December 17.

Fan Photos:

j.nvsty Officer Steve McGarrett! #hawaiifive0



bianca_gram So the other girls went to dinner and I went and creeped on the @hawaiifive0cbs set which was filming in the streets. Nek minnit, I met Alex O’Loughlin who was LOVELY! I couldn’t use my flash because I’m an idiot and he told me I’m an embarrassment to all Aussies. Not the first time I’ve heard that. Won’t be the last. #phoneshadowonpoint #ihaventtoldthegirlsyet #theyareinthesameroomasmerightnow


ericakatsuko Please disregard how horrible I look in this, but look who I met at my job, ALEX O’LOUGHLIN 😍❤️ Anyone who knows me knows how much I love #h50 so this just made my day. 😌 #hawaiifive0

News for the week:

  • Of course it was Alex and Malia’s youngest child, Lion’s 4th birthday this week on the 25th. A belated wish for a Happy Birthday to him and his parents.

  • And somewhere during last week we passed the 4 000 000 views mark. YAY us.

Some Trivia for the week:

  • Alex on the cover of an Australian magazine.

Alex & Friends or Family:

ryrongracie Garage training in Hawaii! #jiujitsu #AlexOLoughlin



Some Laughs for the week:

  • The normal bait from Peter Lenkov. As soon as some Catherine pictures are posted, he posts a McDanno queerbaiting video on his IG. I think it is getting old …… and at least some of the shipper are catching on to this ploy of his by now. Most must be a bit slow, because it took them long enough.

Most ‘interesting’ search for the week:

  • alex o’loughlin stunt double

This was an interesting search to me mainly because after the latest articles, so many people suggested that Alex use a stunt double for Hawaii Five-0 and then he does not have to work so hard and can go on without further injury. To those who think like that, there has always been a stunt double for Alex. And even body doubles and stand-ins who do some of the scenes. They are all there to lighten the load, but that does not take away from Alex’s grueling schedule and responsibilities as No 1 on the call sheet.

There as been a few stunt doubles during the years, some just used for specialised scenes, like the one with Steve on the bike in Episode 1:13. But for the most part Justin Sundquist and Paul Lacovara (who are in Hawaii is at the moment for the stunts) do the stunts for Alex, and they do a great job at taking the hits for him when he lets them.

Next Week:

  • As far as I could see they are now busy filming Episode 6:12, but I am not sure how far along they are with it.



Hope you all have a great fun week.

  1. Thank you for the recap 🙂

    LOL!! Cool McMick pic! Did y’all make that one?

    I swear, those pics of him in those dress pants are dangerous! That man definitely does something to a pair of dress pants…or he does something to ME anyway. Whew!

    That pic on the Aussie GreenGuide…do we think that’s a new pic? He looks there a bit like he did on…I think it was an EW shoot…when he did publicity for Three Rivers. I was wondering if it’s a new pic, or one of those old pics. Anybody know?

    Always love your weeks in review. *happysigh*

      Gracenotpark you’re definitely not the only one that he makes crazy in those dress pants. Wowza what a great ass he ass in those pants. He has a great ass period but it definitely shows in those shots. Thank you wardrobe department for those pants. Now if we could get some more scenes of him without clothes that would be great. If they need some help in the make up department to cover up some tattoos I’m just a call away. I am definitely a willing participant.😏😜💋


    • Yes the photo in the Greenguide is already from 2013, taken by Jeff Katz.

      And yes McMick was my last year Halloween doodle.


  3. Looks like that’s McG’s new truck after Dr. Gray blew up the blue one. Guess a fast sports car just wasn’t his style, ha!

    Thanks as always for the weekly captures.


    • kathysr

      That is his new gorgeous truck, what little of it you can see in these photos. I’ve seen lots of photos of if on different Twitter sites. Steve is definitely a truck guy. Danny’s the sports car guy. Well, Steve has the best of both worlds. He drives Danny’s hot sports car a lot and then he drives his own gorgeous truck. It’s a win win for Steve.

    Those light coloured pants from behind are a big hit for me… covers his ass so snugly… whoa “thud” I not complaining 😍😙😈😈

    I saw the video above on Lenkov’s Instagram. I’m new to the whole McDanno shipper world. I see a lot of sites devoted to it on the Internet, along with pleas to Peter on his Instagram to “please let it happen.” It seems cruel to keep teasing and baiting that fan base and it seems like Peter has been doing it for many years. Alex and Scott are in on the teases, from the little tidbits they’ve give us over the years, from running down the beach hand in hand in Season One DVD to that almost kiss on the Season Six Blooper reel. What is everyone trying to say?

    CBS is a conservative TV network. The audience is older. The show is in a prime time time slot on Friday nights here in the USA. It’s just never gonna happen. I could see only one time when it MIGHT happen – In the fade-out of the final scene in the final episode of the series finale.

    I like my two gorgeous guys with women. I just wish the show would give both of them real on-screen romances–more often than twice a year. lol, all the romance is happening off-screen, I guess.

    Next week’s episode promises to be really be awesome. Steve dresses up for the romantic dinner that he was busy cooking in his kitchen! I thought he looked really happy, so it had to be anticipation for a night of romance. I HOPE it’s not dinner for Doris, Catherine AND Lynn!!! Uh oh!

    So let’s see what actually happens. Hmmmmm……..wonder, wonder, wonder what’s going to happen???


    • gracenotpark

      Yeah you got it pegged, perfectly.

      I too prefer the boys with ladies…and yep. Wish they’d actually give these grown men real grown up relationships. McG had one with Cath, but Show got weird about it. Sigh.


      • Kathysr

        I’ve read that when a TV show pairs a leading man with a steady romantic interest, a large portion of the audience goes ballistic. They become very vocal, sending hate mail to the studio, to the actors, and they spread lots of nastiness all over the internet. The producers cave to those fans and the relationship suddenly disappears. It’s been said over and over that it’s the “kiss of death” to actually put actors together in a real relationship on a TV series. Well, I loved CASTLE and loved the relationship between Kate Beckett and Rick Castle. They were magic together. Their romantic pairing, incredible chemistry and teamwork to solve crimes made the show a hit for eight years. So, it really can work, if it’s done properly.

        I loved Steve with Catherine when she was a powerful, important officer in Naval Intelligence, and she was Steve’s equal in every way. It was never clear why she suddenly left the military. That never made sense. Was it to make her a new 5-O team member? Well, that didn’t work. She really would have been in Steve’s shadow, and I understood why she didn’t want to do that. And then Catherine was at loose ends. It was out of character for her to leave the military without a clear career plan. And then I read that the actress had a serious dust-up on Twitter with some evil trolls who wrote rotten things when she was leaving the show in 2014. I think that caused some problems for her at CBS. Twitter’s deadly dangerous if you don’t know how to master it.

        I guess the writers just want to focus upon our gorgeous guys. Hope the characters are getting lots of loving off screen, cause they sure aren’t getting any onscreen!!!


    • kathysr

      OK, Doris won’t be there,


  6. Magnólia

    Obrigada! Excelente como sempre! 🎸⚘


  7. lindae5o

    Thanks for all the great stuff !! Alex looks wonderful, as always.


  8. I think we have one season to go and one Halloween episode to go. Last chance for a Steve St.John. That would be awesome!
    Thanks for the great review again! The treat of McG in dress pants does the trick for me. And that it seems we’re getting a McChin epi is awesome.
    And yeah to your words FOYeur about Alex’s workload. He is indeed carrying the show on his shoulders.


  9. Thanks for the great recap! My guess is that Catherine spoils a nice dinner that Steve is making for Lynn. We’ll see how it goes with all 3 women back in his life!


    • kathysr

      That’s my take, too, Lulu. Let’s see what happens. Looks like Catherine’s going to lure Steve into another dangerous mission.
