Alex’s attitude or Avery’s abs?

Which of these better represents Seattle Grace (or whatever will become the new version of the hospital now that it’s going up for sale)?

That’s what’s to be decided on Thursday’s episode, titled “The Face of Change,” airing at 9 p.m. ET on CTV. In the rebranding of Seattle Grace, there is competition for a new “face of the hospital” and both Jackson Avery and Alex Karev are in the running. (Cristina opted out immediately, saying her face only goes on the ‘Nobel’ version.)

Jackson’s baby blues have already caught the attention of both April and new intern Stephanie but Alex has definitely “made the rounds” over the last eight seasons. It’s going to be a tight race as both candidates have a lot of support.

“Jackson Avery is the new face of Seattle Grace,” Stephanie says to Jo.

But when Jo throws her support behind Alex, commenting how he’s the perfect face for the hospital, Stephanie replies with: “If you want a face that’s unshaven and sweating light beer.”

The interns then take the opportunity to share their inside knowledge with their candidates of choice.

“They like Avery’s looks and his name,” Jo says to Alex. “You don’t have either. But you have Africa. Lead with Africa.”

“He’s a scrapper and a fighter,” says Stephanie to Jackson, in reference to Alex. “Some people find that charming but you are an Avery. Use it. Own it and impress them. They want to be impressed.”

We can see either of them making the cut but we’d like to throw someone else’s name in the ring – McDreamy. With that hair, he could easily be the poster child for Seattle Grace – or a volumizing shampoo.

(psst...Check out the many faces of McDreamy!)
