Alix Earle & Braxton Barrios Hit The ESPYS Red Carpet & They Totally Passed The Green Line Test

If there’s one thing about me, it’s that I am an Alix Earle supporter and fan F&A. This girl really can do it all: she is a TikTok star, fashion icon, and Gen Z’s virtual BFF. It’s canon at this point — we just love her. 

Since I follow Alix on all of her socials, I (like the rest of Gen Zers) am always invested in her love life and other exciting news. So, I’m sure we all remember her relationship with professional baseball player Tyler Wade: In December 2022, Alix spilled all the tea about their relationship and responded to questions about their breakup. It was iconic. 

Since then, she has been seen going on dates with a few people, but took time to focus on herself and her friends. But, with Hot Girl Summer in full swing, Earle is ready to step back into the dating world. 

Earle has been rumored to be dating NFL player Braxton Berrios, who formerly dated model Sophia Culpo. Internet sleuths started to speculate that Earle and Berrios were seeing each other in early May 2023 due to a viral video posted by a TikTok user by the name of @itsjulesdalmau where she met Earle. Of course, fans quickly recognized that Earle was not alone, and was in fact there with Berrios. 

Since that video, rumors have been flying about this pair. There is a whole lot of drama surrounding this relationship, but I think we are all past that. (I hope). 

Earle started to post more frequently with Berrios on her TikTok, further confirming all the rumors. Yesterday, the pair made their red carpet debut at the ESPYS 2023 red carpet. They looked amazing — Earle should definitely rock eyeliner more often.

And yes, those pictures totally passed TikTok’s “green line test.” If you’re unsure what I’m talking about, let me give you some info: The “green line test” looks at the way a couple stands next to each other, especially in pictures. It is the prime indicator of the dynamic in the relationship, and TikTok believes it’s a sign as to how the relationship will end.

Although, it’s worth noting that the “green line test” isn’t backed by any science whatsoever — it’s merely just an internet theory that TikTok loves to analyze. Alix Earle is powerful, y’all. Let’s not get that twisted, I’m sure she’s fine all on her own — but it doesn’t make the videos any less entertaining.

So, while we still don’t know if the two are officially official, we are here for it. I’m hoping we get some more Alix and Braxton content this summer!
