Jeb Bush appears to be a fan of the new fall television show "Supergirl" and its lead actress, Melissa Benoist.

"She looked pretty hot," the former Florida governor said Wednesday night in Las Vegas. "I don't know what channel it's on, but I'm looking forward to that."

"I saw it when I was working out this morning," Bush said of an ad for the CBS show.

After a few moments, he added: "That'll make news."

The Republican presidential candidate was asked during a forum, after nearly an hour-long talk on policy, about his favorite superhero.

Bush said he's "kind of old-school," naming Batman as his favorite character. "A little dark these days."
