Alejandro on video! Nice guy:

Here is his ABC interview:
If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 things would you bring with you and why?
A picture of my mom so I can keep fighting, a knife, and duct tape (that stuff always comes in handy!).

Do you prefer “hot spot” type clubs or low-key bars and why?
Depends on the night – if I’m celebrating I like to go big, but otherwise low key nights are a blast.

Do you consider yourself a romantic and why?
Yeah – my mom always says that a good man provides for his family, but a better man makes his girl fall in love with him every single day.

What super power would you choose to have? Why?
See the future so I can change it!
