A few months ago, the thousands of members of Television Without Pity voted Alex Karev the Most Wrongly Underused Character and the Most Redemptive Character on a Sucky Show (LOL) in their Annual Tubey Awards which award the Best and Worst of the previous TV season. You can click this link to see the winners of the “Character” category in the 2012 Tubey Awards, or you can click the thumbnails below to see Alex’s wins.

Now, the staff of Television Without Pity has published their Year in Review 2012 list where they’ve named Justin one of TV’s Most Valuable Performers.

Do you agree with the folks over at TWOP?
If season 9 of Grey’s Anatomy continues going the way it has so far, I predict Justin and his character Alex will be winning these same awards next year…null

Here’s an interview with Justin from the Australian weekly magazine New Idea.

Interview: Grey’s Anatomy star Justin Chambers
November 26, 2012

With the Grey’s Anatomy: The Complete Eighth Season about to be released on DVD, we chat to the man who plays Dr. Alex Karev.

With the Grey’s Anatomy: The Complete Eighth Season about to be released on DVD, we chat to series regular Justin Chambers.

What is the focus for your character, Alex Karev, in Season Eight?

Alex concentrates on being a better surgeon in Season Eight. He’s also a bit of an outcast because he was the rat who ratted out Meredith, so he has to deal with those issues, too. I think there were some good lessons for Alex to learn this season.
There were certain obstacles that came between some of the doctors, but they’ve been together for so long that now’s the time to lay the cards on the table and explain everything.
All of the characters in the show are flawed, which means watching them trying to work through things is very interesting. It’s fun to watch and it deepens their friendships, too.
The show is all about the trials and tribulations of being interns in a hospital, and it works!

What is Alex’s biggest flaw?

I think that he runs away from his issues and his fears. He can’t make commitments and sometimes he tries to take the easy way out.
I don’t necessarily consider him a cheater but if he can take the shortcut, he will do that despite the fact that it usually bites him in the nose.
In all honesty, I think his biggest flaw is not being able to make a commitment. When he commits to someone – like with Lucy who ended up stabbing him in the back – it reinforces the message, ‘I should stay home. I don’t want to mature; I don’t want to grow up.’ I think that’s his biggest failing.

What would you like to see happen to Alex in the show in the future?

I would like to see his mom and dad, and I would like to see more of his relationship with his brother. I would also like to see him happy again in a relationship, and I would like to see him become a really good doctor.
However, if all this happened then the series would be over and there wouldn’t be anything left to write about, and I definitely don’t want that to happen.
When the show finally ends, I’d love to see everything resolved for Alex – but not for now. It’s fun to find out what’s going to happen to him next.

You were part of the original Grey’s Anatomy cast. How would you describe your Grey’s Anatomy experience?

People magazine has an online feature where they chose a male celeb from each US state to “who represent hotness from every corner of the country.” Justin was chosen to represent his hometown state of Ohio. Click the link for the feature at People.com.

The United States of Sexy


Prior to being recruited as a male model off the streets of Paris, the Grey’s Anatomy hunk lived a small-town life in Springfield, where the class of ’89 graduate from Springfield-Clark Career Technology Center majored in general merchandising.

Screencaps from the 20 second scene Justin was in in last night’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy episode have been added to the gallery.

9.05 – Beautiful Doom

Next Thursday airs episode 9.06 “Second Opinion” and below is the promo and a sneak peek from the episode.

ABC finally released the Grey’s season 9 cast photos and Justin looks great. The photos have been added to the gallery along with a season 7 group cast photo that was never officially released. Click on the links.

In an article about a guest actress who was in the season premiere of Grey’s Anatomy, Justin gets a mention.

K-State alum begins acting career on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

With the help of an acting coach, she got a callback with five or six other people for the role on “Grey’s Anatomy.” In a room of producers and writers, she recited the lines and secured her role as the woman who greets Dr. Owen Hunt at an airport gate.

“It was so nerve-wracking,” Alexander said.

Even more nerve-wracking was the idea of acting with Kevin McKidd, according to Alexander.

This nervousness was cast aside when the scene was filmed at 10 o’clock on a cold night.

Alexander said she admired the fact that the “Grey’s Anatomy” cast still had the energy to act with enthusiasm; McKidd, Ellen Pompeo, who plays Dr. Meredith Grey, and Justin Chambers, who plays Dr. Alex Karev, had been on set since 8 that morning.

“They had been working since 8 a.m. Their energy [always] has to be up,” Alexander said.

To end this post, here is a pic a fan took with Justin at a restaurant in Berkeley, California on Sunday. Click the thumbnail.

In an article about actress Arianne Alexander, who will guest star in the season 9 premiere of Grey’s Anatomy airing this Thursday, she is quoted as saying:

“To be on set with Ellen Pompeo, Justin Chambers and Kevin McKidd was like watching a master class in acting. These people are at the top of their game.”

And to end this post in a kinda creepy way, someone took a pic of Justin while he was shopping at Trader Joe’s a few days ago. Click on the thumbnail.

EDIT: Big thanks to Fay for updating the site with this article that does a pretty good job of naming the most memorable relationships/hookups Alex has had in the eight seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. I apologize to Fay for hijacking her post but the inaccuracies in this article drive me a little crazy (LOL) and so I’ve done some small corrections to it.


He might not have the best hair or the best abs, and he might not have a sexy “Mc” nickname, but Grey’s Anatomy’s Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) has always been a ladies man … and a bit of a man whore.

From the days when he hit on everyone to the time he cheated on Izzie (Katherine Heigl), Alex has proven over and over again why he is a perpetual bachelor. However, none of this is to say that he’s a bad guy. Sure, he has his flaws, but underneath his tough exterior, there’s a very sweet side to our favorite jackass. Let us all remember: Izzie left him. But then again, he did get her fired. No, he didn’t. Izzie thought he did but she came to her senses later on.

Regardless, all of that is coming to a head (and then an end) in Season 9 as we’ve learned that Alex will embark on a number of new sexcapades before finally finding the love of his life. To honor this occasion, we’re taking a look back at the women of Alex’s past, or at least the women that we actually met.

Nurse Olivia (Sarah Utterback): Also known as the woman who Alex cheated on Izzie with and then gave syphilis. Who says chivalry is dead?

Addison (Kate Walsh): Their time in the on-call room might not have been particularly meaningful, but if you think about it, they were kind of the perfect match.

Callie (Sara Ramirez): Nobody knew about the Callie-Alex hook-up until WAY after it happened, but apparently the pair got it on in, like, Season 2, before Callie was George’s (T.R. Knight) Mrs. and way before she was a sexy attending with a killer singing voice and a thing for women.

Jane Doe/Eva Ava/Rebecca (Elizabeth Reaser): Everyone remembers Jane Doe. Alex saved her from the ferry crash and was her only friend when she lost her memory and had to have her entire face reconstructed. They seemed like an adorable couple up until she got her memory back and remembered that she’s a little (or alot) crazy. Her mental struggles brought up childhood issues for Alex … as did her suicide attempt (which sent him crying into Izzie’s arms).
