Someone has a crush! Kendall Jenner has got her eye on this season’s ‘Dancing With the Stars’ competitor, Alek Skarlatos, and HollywoodLife has learned EXCLUSIVELY that she’s angling to meet him!
Celebrities, they’re just like us: they watched the season premiere of Dancing With the Stars on Sept. 14! One such celebrity was Kendall Jenner, 19, who (again, like us) was totally smitten with contestant, Alek Skarlatos, the 22-year-old hunk from Oregon, who helped to prevent a terrorist attack last summer in Paris. Ya know, no big deal or anything. We’ve got the EXCLUSIVE details on Kendall’s crush!
“Kendall saw him on the season premiere last night and was like ‘I want to meet that guy,'” a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “She heard what he did on the train headed to Paris and would love to meet this real life hero.”
Can’t say we blame Kendall– we want to meet Alek, too! However, the more that Kendall learned about Alek, the more she thinks he could be perfect for her. “A handsome guy with depth and integrity, that’s how she described him,” added the source. “She thinks he’s adorable.” And it surely didn’t hurt that Alek’s dance was, according to judge Carrie Ann Inaba, “one of the best dances of the night.”
Alek might be bursting onto the scene at just the right time, as Kendall is in the market for a new man. She briefly dated Nick Jonas this summer but, as of now, the two are definitively in the friend zone with one another. In fact, when they hung out at an afterparty during New York Fashion Week, Nick even flirted with other girls right in from of Kendall’s face– and she could not have cared less!
Alek, are you reading this? This could be your big moment, dude! Don’t miss out!
What do you think: would Kendall and Alek make a cute couple? Or would they be an odd couple?
