8 Reasons Why Alex Karev Is Bae

Alex Karev is one of the most underrated hotties on "Grey's Anatomy." We always hear about how hot McDreamy and McSteamy are and how good Jackson looks without his shirt but we often forget just how perfect Karev is. If you don't already love Dr. Karev, here are 8 reasons why you should:

1. He's good with kids.

Even though it wasn't in Karev's initial plans, he decided to specialized in pediatrics. His kind heart may not always show to the adults around him, but it's clear in his little patients. Remember that time he saved a dying baby with his body heat? Who couldn't love someone who saves the lives of kids for a living?

2. He's confident.

Karev is the bomb.com and he knows it. He doesn't need anyone to tell him how bad-ass he is.

3. He knows how to deal with crazy.

Karev is known for attracting the crazies. But what girl doesn't love a guy that knows how to deal with all her craziness instead of just leaving?

4. He's protective.

From his friends to his patients, Karev is always ready to fight for who he cares about.

5. He is always there when someone needs him.

Even though Karev was in love with Izzie, he carried her out when Denny died. He was always there when Arizona needed to talk or needed him to take over her surgeries. He also took over Christina's job as being Meredith's person. After Derek died, he always called Meredith to make sure she was okay and even helped her with the kids when she came back.

6. He's hard-working and dedicated.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F13%2F636067284290630686806202127_uuuuu.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=204&h=b258dd227745298d3f6c8316318c098b1c79b7d047cb5db1f5891cfd614ab1ad&size=980x&c=3684768052 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F13%252F636067284290630686806202127_uuuuu.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D204%26h%3Db258dd227745298d3f6c8316318c098b1c79b7d047cb5db1f5891cfd614ab1ad%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3684768052%22%7D" expand=1]

Karev didn't have the best home life growing up due to his dad being a drunk and he went to a state school. You can say he was average, but yet his hard work and determination led to him being one of the best surgeons at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. He shows that he doesn't easily give up and is willing to fight for what he wants.

7. He looks good in everything.

From scrubs to glasses, Karev always looks hot.

8. He has a good heart.

Karev took care of Izzie when she was grieving over Denny and stuck by her side through chemo. He always stands up for his patients no matter what it takes. He even took care of his dying father even though he put Karev through Hell and back. The point is, Karev has a heart of gold even though he is known for his blunt and sarcastic personality.

So next time you find yourself sitting down and watching "Grey's," stop and admire how perfect the hot underdog, Dr. Alex Karev, truly is.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
