Trent lends his vehicle to Nolan is about to drive it with Chelsea and warns him not to take his boat.

Nolan: What does that say about me that the second Trent said..."Don't take my boat out," it was guaranteed that I would.
Chelsea: It means you're a sociopath. Now, what does it say about me that I find that hot?

What is the meaning of "I find that hot"?

So, what is 'that'? The previous statement

What does she find that fact? Hot

2 If you give up, have you checked the urban dictionary?
Most of your queries can be answered there.

Or I wouldn't be surprised if this one is listed as a slang option.
