I just saw a "hot" photo with just 7 favorites and 4 comments. Does this meet the criteria for being hot?

In order to be hot a photo must be in a theme, as hotness shows the most popular photos within a given theme. It is not selected by staff members, but is automatically awarded based on community reaction to a photo.
Hotness is determined by factors like number of votes, comments, views, and favorites. The "hotness" of a photo is automatically updated by our server every day for open themes. A photo's hotness is not permanent, but can change based on how the community is responding to other photos in the theme. If a photo is not hot now, it could be hot later based on the community reaction.

To earn a hot photo, it must be entered into a theme. it becomes hot only by a certain % of fav's , comments and props it receives from the JPG members views. Hot is not permanent. It can loose hotness from how the JPG members respond to other theme entries..

The answers are correct in principle. But I have often noticed photos (obviously in themes) with a Hot status and very few Favorites or Props whereas other photos with a much greater number of Favorites and Props were not Hot. I reported the cases to JPG and it was corrected. It led me to think that the selection process was not entirely automatic.
