“Alex loves sports and hanging out at the beach. He is quite arrogant and brags to everyone that he is going to be a professional athlete. Is his cockiness just a facade to mask his crushing self-doubt? Is he using his sports dream to fill the void left by the disappearance of his parents? Or is he just a brazen youth trying to 'look cool?'”
Dev Update #12

Alex is a villager who lives in the house southeast of Pierre's General Store. Alex is one of the twelve characters available to marry.

Heart Events

Two Hearts

Two Hearts.png

On a sunny summer day, visit the beach when Alex is there.

Details 
You see Alex with his gridball. He greets you and tries to toss you the gridball. You fail to catch it. He laughs and says it was a nice try. He goes on to tell you he's sure that he's going to become the first professional gridball player from Stardew Valley. He asks you what you think his chances are.
  • "I believe in you!" (No effect on friendship.) Alex thanks you for your support and says that he'll remember it.
  • "Wow, you're really arrogant." (No effect on friendship.) Alex says you're just a little jealous and leaves.

Four Hearts

Four Hearts.png

Enter town between 9am and 4pm.

Details 
Alex is next to the dog pen near his home. He's talking to the dog, whose name is revealed as Dusty. He comments that both he and the dog have been through a lot, and that he feels misunderstood. You come out from behind the Saloon, and Alex asks if you heard any of that.
  • "Yes, I heard everything." (No effect on friendship.)
  • "Not really... why?" (No effect on friendship.)

Either way, he says the reason he lives with his grandparents is because of his dad. His dad was an alcoholic and would verbally abuse Alex, calling him "worthless". One day his dad left, and shortly after that his mother got sick and passed away. Alex goes on to say that he shouldn't dwell on it and doesn't need sympathy. Trying to lighten the mood, Alex offers you the opportunity to see what Dusty will do for a barbecued steak.

Five Hearts

Five Hearts.png

Enter Alex's house when he's there.

Details 
You approach him while he stares at his bookcase and laments the fact that he hasn't read a single book in it. He tells you he's worried that he won't get anywhere in life without being knowledgeable, and he feels worthless.
  • "That's crazy. You're a genius!" (No effect on friendship.)
  • "We all have our strengths and weaknesses." (+50 friendship.)
  • "Worthless? Yeah, that about sums it up." (-50 friendship.)

He decides that if he works hard he can accomplish anything. He suggests that you and him have dinner and discuss philosophy.

Six Hearts

Six Hearts.png

Enter Alex's house when he's there.

Details 
He'll express doubt about being able to go pro as a gridball player. He apologizes to you for acting rude and arrogant and appreciates how you stuck with him despite all that. You'll provide some encouragement (no choices necessary) and Alex will return to his strength workout with renewed vigor.

As of 1.3, if you enter the house right after Alex, he hasn't had enough time to walk to his room and open the door, so you will get stuck there during the cutscene. However, you can still press skip to resolve this.

Eight Hearts

Eight Hearts.png

On a sunny summer day, visit the beach when Alex is there.

Details 
Alex is sitting on the beach crying. You approach him and sit down next to him. He says today is the day his mother died 12 years ago. He regrets not being able to thank her for taking care of him when he was a kid. The only keepsake he has left is his mother's music box. Alex opens it and plays it for the both of you. As the music plays, you see a vision of Alex's mother happily cradling baby Alex in her arms. As the music fades, he asks what you're thinking.
  • "Honor your mother's memory by always doing your best." (No effect on friendship.) Alex agrees and says that's why he's working so hard to be a professional gridball player.
  • "You shouldn't dwell in the past." (No effect on friendship.)
  • "I'll always be here for you if you get lonely." (No effect on friendship.) Alex thanks you and bashfully says you're his best friend in the whole town. If male, he says "You... you're different than other guys. More sensitive. I'm glad."
  • "Get over it. Life is hard for everyone." (No effect on friendship.)

After calming down, he says the two of you should head back to town. Before you leave, he nervously asks you not to tell anybody that he was crying. You laugh and walk off while he hurriedly chases after you.

Ten Hearts

Ten Hearts.png

Alex will send you a letter to meet him at the Saloon after dark. After receiving the letter, enter the Saloon between 7pm and 10pm.

Details 
Alex reserves a private room for your dinner date. Gus plays the violin for you two and Emily will bring in your food.

If the player is female, Alex confesses that he's had a crush on you since the two of you first met, and although his crushes in the past faded away quickly, his feelings for you kept growing. If the player is male, Alex confesses he's been drawn to you since the two of you first met; although he denied these feelings at first, he's now decided to follow his heart.

  • "I feel the same way." (No effect on friendship.) Alex is elated that the both of you were finally able to admit your feelings to each other. He happily digs into his steak. Dusty suddenly bursts through the window, salivating at the smell of food. Alex laughs.
  • "I'm sorry... I don't feel that way about you." (No effect on friendship.) Alex is crushed and apologizes for making you uncomfortable. He loses his appetite.

Fourteen Hearts

Fourteen Hearts.png

Exit the Farmhouse in year 2+ between 5am and 8:20am on any day other than Sunday. You must have Gold.png5,000g available.

Details 
Alex will stop you and ask for Gold.png5,000g for a 'secret project'. If you accept, he will remark that it will be ready to be seen on Sunday.

Enter town on a Sunday to trigger part 2 of the event.

Part 3 can be triggered by entering the saloon. Alex, Kent, Shane, and Gus can be seen watching a gridball game in the backroom half of which has been decorated with gridball memorabilia and a TV. The Farmer walks in, where Alex tells the farmer that although his dream of going pro may not have been realised (though he assures the farmer that he's happy with his life now) this is a small way of realising it. Kent adds that it takes his mind off things, and Shane agreees. Gus tells the Farmer that watching the game is good for business, too. The cutscene ends with the Farmer saying that the guys have a new tradition now and that the Gold.png5,000g was well spent.

Group Ten-Heart Event

Ten Hearts.png

If the player is unmarried and has given a bouquet to all available bachelors, raised friendship with each bachelor to 10 hearts, and seen each bachelor's 10-heart event, then entering The Stardrop Saloon will trigger a cutscene.

Details 
If the player has a Rabbit's Foot in inventory, the cutscene will consist of a friendly game of pool.

If the player does not have a Rabbit's Foot in inventory, all bachelors will express anger about the player dating them all at one time. Regardless of the player's dialogue choice(s), all bachelors will decide to give the player the "cold shoulder" for about a week after the event. They will give angry dialogue when interacted with, and refuse gifts. After about a week, all bachelors will forgive the player, and dialogues return to normal.

This event will trigger only one time per save file. This event will not trigger if you are married.

Marriage

Main article: Marriage

Once married, Alex will move into the farmhouse. Like other marriage candidates, he will add his own room to the right of the bedroom. He'll also setup a workout space behind the farmhouse where he'll sometimes go to lift weights.

On rainy nights, Alex may offer you dinner: Survival Burger, Dish o' The Sea, Fried Eel, Crispy Bass, or Baked Fish. On days when he stays inside the farmhouse all day, he may make you breakfast: Omelet, Hashbrowns, or Pancakes.
