Mitzi-kapture-alex 4

Alex is a beautiful, athletic woman in her late-thirties with shoulder length brown hair and blue eyes.

She is 165 cm (5'5") in height and 56 kg (124 lbs) in weight.


Alex is straight forward and blunt when involved in situations. In the same way as Sam Thomas, she occasionally teases Mitch. However she is devoted to her duties at Baywatch and is very loyal and honest. Alex has also shown glimpses for being affectionate, such as when April broke down emotionally after making a mistake during a rescue. Alex is also shown to have a temper if pushed too far, which Neely Capshaw found out when she attempted to get rid of her.

Skills and Abilities[]

Due to be an already experienced lifeguard, Alex knows various rescue techniques, CPR and the handling of vehicles. She is also a strong swimmer. Alex also has a great understanding of finance and current technology, which she uses to try and find innovate ways to help the lifeguard team.


Season 9[]

Alex is first seen as a rival to Mitch Buchanan and Baywatch with her own company Bayguard. She heavily tries to recruit Baywatch employees away from Baywatch for her own company, but after her company was found to be a fraud, she resigned from Bayguard, and joined Baywatch as a business consultant. She is eventually promoted to Lieutenant.

Alex works throughout the season with her Baywatch co-workers often with Mitch. She recruits Jessie to be a lifeguard after firing her as maintenance. She often tries to implement and find ways to utilize current technology to advance the skills for her Baywatch team.




  • Alex most likely remained at Baywatch when some of the team went to Hawaii and at some point left afterwards as she is never seen in any other further seasons or the reunion movie.
