It has been two and a half months since hiatus started for the cast of Hawaii Five-0, when filming of Season 4 ended in March – still a month and a half to go before we will once again get any news from the set in Hawaii, when filming of Season 5 starts. Although the wedding has been big news and we have had some pics from Tokyo, Oz and Hawaii, it has been really quiet on the news front about Alex. 😦
Some fans decided to make our own fun and news……. 😆 Last week a few of Alex’s fans started tweeting on the ‘Hottie of the Week‘ tag for E!News. By Wednesday Paula and I thought we should join the battle. We soon realised it was a battle between Alex’s fans and the Glee fans for Chris Golfer (Apparently Glee fans have been voting the cast in for the past 6 weeks) The other big contenders were Lady Gaga and Lauren Jauregui with some other minor following for other celebs as well. …… BUT last night this came through!
And it was announced on E! News as they do every Friday evening.

Just to get everybody up to speed on what it is all about……
‘Hottie of the Week‘ is a twitter competition that E! News runs every week to give the fans
a chance to “vote” for their favorite star to be ‘Hottie of the Week’. This in fact means that it has nothing to do with the celebrities themselves, but just the fans willingness to annoy all their twitter followers with constant tweets to @ENews with the actor’s name and the #HottieOfTheWeek tag. 🙂
So all that this achieves is to get the celebrity mentioned on E! News on Friday night as ‘Hottie of the Week‘. Of course the target market for this is teen idols as it is normally teenagers who are willing to spend any time on this. 😀
Lucky for me and Paula, we have our own personal twitter accounts (
@FO_Yeur and @neropatti ) apart from our blog account ( @AboutAlexO ), so we could use those as well without annoying our blog followers too much or land in twitter jail for tweeting too much. 😀 I rarely use my twitter, but it came in very handy this time – apologies to my followers for the pic spam of Alex while I ‘voted’
On the one hand I am scared to share the names of the tweeters who participated and made it happen, because I am scared I might miss somebody. But feel we need to give a lot of thanks to the ones who made it happen ( it was a fantastic group effort!)…….so here we go:

(If I missed anybody, I apologize – there was a lot of tweets to scan through to get the names )
During the whole time I did not see too much complaining from the fans on twitter and the timelines were filled with pretty pictures of Alex. Thousands of them! ❤ Of course it is not necessary to tweet pictures, but it helps, because you are not allowed to tweet the same tweet over and over again, so attaching a picture overcomes that problem. And it also gives the followers something to look at, other than just thousands of tweets with the same tags……..
Everybody did a great job, because the real voting for Alex only started on Tuesday, but I think most will agree that a lot of the hard work was done by Carol – we applaud you! 🙂
Most of us who participated agree that we would much rather see Alex recognized for his acting, but that is not in our hands. None of us are members of the bodies that vote for acting accolades 😦 That is why we show our support in the places were we can at least try to make him aware of how much we appreciate him as an artist and as a person ……..♥
Please remember to vote for Steve’s abs: Here
- I added some names at the end of the list, that I have missed earlier.
- Remember that apparently RT’s does not count in the competition.
- The tweets from people with protected accounts can not be counted, because only your own followers can read your tweets (Nobody else (E!News included) can see them).
- And I also can not see tweets from people if they blocked our twitter account or if they are protected.
- Belated birthday wishes to Chris Colfer (From Glee) – It was his 24th birthday last week, on 27 May – (oops!)
