"Alex's Choice" is the seventh episode of season one of Wizards of Waverly Place, and the seventh of the overall series. It first aired on November 16, 2007.


Gigi invites Alex and Harper to her annual tea party which Alex tries to convince Harper not to go to. Alex learns that Gigi plans to embarrass Harper, so she uses her magic to get back at her, and save Harper from humiliation. Meanwhile, Justin and Max send out prank mail, including one where they claim they're lost on an island in "The Lava Sea," and they receive unwanted help from emergency wizards.


Alex finds Gigi and her copycat crew behaving suddenly nice to her and Harper, giving them invitations to her tea party. Though Harper believes it, Alex is convinced that Gigi is up to something. She overhears Gigi's plans to embarrass Harper in her tea party, but Alex is unable to prove this to Harper because she used magic to figure this out. Alex decides to go to Gigi's party with Harper as Harper is still convinced that Gigi has become good.

When Alex goes to the party, she uses the Truth spell to make Gigi tell the truth about her tea party, but everyone in the tea party started telling embarrassing truths and also their thoughts, including Alex who accidentally reveals that she is a wizard, but she covers up for it. When Alex forces the truth about the tea from Gigi not only reveals her plan but that she doesn't like her so called friends, the girls from her copy cat crew dumps a cake on Gigi's face and pours tea on her. When Alex thought Gigi has had enough, she asks Harper to make Gigi wear the Loser crown (the party being 'Who could bring the biggest loser party' and the crown was meant for Harper).

Meanwhile, Justin and Max send prank mail, claiming that they are lost in "the Lava Sea", but they receive unwanted help from emergency wizards. The emergency wizards come to interrogate  Justin, Max, and Theresa, and they are later sentenced to community service, in which they wash the wizard cop's laundry ('they're part of the community').

Production Notes


  • "Some are evil, some are kind, but now all must speak their mind" - Causes everyone to say what they're thinking.
  • "Some people are a gem, some people are a rat, to learn who's who, give me the ear of a bat" - Gives the user bat ears with super-sonic hearing.


  • The title is a parody of the book and movie, Sophie's Choice.


  • Although Theresa put the lock on the table when she and Alex were talking, the lock was on the door.
