Real World: St Thomas - Brandon Kane
I've been putting off on this one because he has been incredibly difficult to find information on since I first saw [url=http://www.stthomasblog.com/2012/03/23/first-st-thomas-real-world-cast-member-revealed/]the original post by the St Thomas blog that gave his name[/url]. However, once I found what I was looking for the information came rolling in. 24 years old, from Quincy, Massachusetts. Goes by the nickname "Hollywood". He did not go to college. Loves the movies Shawshank Redemption and Boondock Saints, the band Korn, Family Guy, CSI, and all art and music. He has a younger brother (22) who is in the Marine Corps. Does construction and electrician work in the Boston area. He is a recovering drug addict. In his own words: [quote]lets get the awkward **** out of the way i am a recovering drug addict. i am very spiritual. dont talk about how you love satan i wont respond to you. dont be under 18 i wont respond. "About Me" This was once a very hard thing to answer, I have been tried and tested. I have learned so much and have over come a ton, Such as i am not "a rocker" I am so much more than some cliche, my clothes my tats and my piercings are not who i am but mearly an expression of my individualism.This took me a long time to realize. I have come to realize as well, that life is one crazy *** journey. One that cannot truly be described or even understood and things have a funny way of happening.I am just me and we are just us. There is no definition for a person or for life and that is what makes it all worth living. There are things at work that cannot be described, or even comprehended and I am not freaking out about that. I am just living and loving every moment of the struggle known as life.[/quote] The only proof I could find that he is away: [url=http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=13172][img]http://vevmo.com/imagehosting/15504f8254d3e0d55.png[/img][/url] [url=http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=13112][img]http://vevmo.com/imagehosting/15504f7b60202991a.png[/img][/url] [url=http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=13170][img]http://vevmo.com/imagehosting/15504f82543361dc5.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=13171][img]http://vevmo.com/imagehosting/15504f82548e00977.png[/img][/url] [url=http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=13174][img]http://vevmo.com/imagehosting/15504f82555ec32ea.jpg[/img][/url][url=http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=13175][img]http://vevmo.com/imagehosting/15504f**********d.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=13168][img]http://vevmo.com/imagehosting/15504f**********7.jpg[/img][/url] Tattoo on the neck and the earplugs are a match.

Growing up in Boston's infamous "Southie" neighborhood, he has had to steal and hustle to survive. Right now, he is homeless and couch-surfing. Since graduating high school, he has worked day and night in order to support his mother and his younger sister Savannah, who is the light of his life. Though he's currently doing electrical and construction work, Brandon's dream is to leave all that in the dust and become a music journalist. He's extremely open about his past and often comes on very strong, very quickly. He typically goes for tattooed punk girls with indie sensibilities, but that doesn't mean he is averse to challenging himself with a preppy girl every once in a while. That time may have come because it looks like Laura might have caught his eye in St. Thomas. And he certainly won't be shy to express his affections. With extreme exhibitionist tendencies, Brandon -- who was a virgin until he was 19 -- has since slept with over 100 women and deflowered a nearby high school's cheerleading captains. After a particularly heart-wrenching breakup with his first love, Brandon had a year of promiscuous sex and coke-fueled partying. He has now been drug-free for five months. Brandon sees the Real World as his opportunity to get out of his town and have a shot at a normal life. Will he be able to stay on the straight and narrow path while in St. Thomas or will he succumb to his old wild ways?[/quote]
A second stab at the Joey Kovar storyline, nice! Also I love his whole philosphy on Life , interested in seeing how he fits on the show. I'm liking that this cast just seem to be loving life and just all seem like well rounded people.

I don't understand why people people wear those big gauge earrings

His writing on tumblr makes it seem like he takes himself too seriously and thinks he's much more intelligent than he is. His "philosophical" statements gave me an eery Jared Lee Loughner vibe. Overall, he comes off to me as a complete tool... maybe I'll be proven wrong though and end up liking him, who knows. It happens all the time with this show. I thought I was going to hate Michael Ross from LV2, but he turned out to be my favorite cast member. I thought I was going to hate CJ & Knight and they ended up being pretty cool.
Jared Leto is awesome by the way. Also im loving this cast
Please let there be vampire cos-play.
I wish him the best on his road to recovery. I'm interested in seeing how Brandon's story will play out.
He [strike]remember[/strike] reminds me so much of Ryan Leslie Back to New Orleans. Hope he is not that ***, lol.
[QUOTE=mizwood;302473]He [strike]remember[/strike] reminds me so much of Ryan Leslie Back to New Orleans. Hope he is not that ***, lol.[/QUOTE] I don't see a speck of Ryan Leslie in him at all. How do you see it? EDIT: Please don't say "because of the tattoos"...
Ryan Leslie has like one tattoo isn't he? Anyway, I don't think it's because of tattoos. During New Orleans filming I felt like the reason why Ryan is acting so crazy is because he takes himself very seriously and has his own philosophy of the life. For me, Brandon looks in the same way.
He reminds me of my friend Anthony
If I was to say he reminds me of any former cast member, it would be David from New Orleans. Just because I get that pretentious vibe from his pictures and then the whole spirituality thing, but then again I don't know him so we will have to wait and see.

He strikes me as being similar to some guy I saw on Project Runway one time, but I don't really watch that show so I cannot tell you the cat's name or which season it was.

[QUOTE=cystic;302526]Uh huh, sure. ;)[/QUOTE] Oh I make a temporary pitstop when Heidi Klum pops on my screen during the channel surf regardless of what show it is for sure.
After reading his tumblr and formspring, I actually really like this guy, he seems really cool.
He is the coolest dude. I know him personally and honestly, I love him. He's a smart, fun, lovable guy! Hopefully he's the same on the real world but Brandon is not a tool! He's the kind of person you can have a legitimate conversation with. We'll see how this goes lol
He looks interesting.
[QUOTE=Braelynnjh;303313] Brandon is not a tool! He's the kind of person you can have a legitimate conversation with. We'll see how this goes lol[/QUOTE] This seems to be the stereotypical response. Same thing was said about Ashley from back to San Diego. I mean I'm not saying its not true, just a little early.
I would like to hear his story of being a recovering addict, and thinks he seems interesting. However, I could also see him being possibly being a problem in the house.

The comments on this story are funny, at least to me [url=http://www.metro.us/boston/local/article/1145378--southie-bad-boy-brandon-kane-joins-cast-of-the-real-world]Metro - Southie bad boy Brandon Kane joins cast of The Real World[/url]

This one makes me laugh out loud: "Some people are all grumpy in in here.... Maybe people should have better decency then to bash someone for getting better then them or from an article saying south boston then CLEARLY stating Quincy after. What is wrong with people? Congrats to Brandon. Tell all the people trying to bash you that they are as worthless as their caps lock key. Over used and obnoxious. And also, if you know him, why put it out there anon? why not be proud that you're trying to bash someone unless you're scared. Can attempt to dish it out but can't take it."
The video Brandon just uploaded on YouTube (ValkyriesGrip) makes me want to see him on the show so much more for some reason...
I wonder if the MTV tattoo on the back of his hand came before or after filming his season. Looks like after. I've seen a lot of people giving him **** saying that he isn't really from South Boston, that Quincy isn't Southie, etc. He didn't have to say anything about it, but he cleared it up (and gave us good insight into his upbringing). Good for him.

[/QUOTE] Unless he filmed that in the mirror, it is the mirror image of the MTV symbol which could be an anti-MTV statement so I'd guess afterwards if that was the case.
He story is almost as limp as his wrists.

[QUOTE=Npresh24;308438]He didn't want to change his twitter name to include MTV , so instead he got a MTV tattoo.[/QUOTE] So instead of having a temporary change to his Twitter handle, he got a permanent tattoo of the MTV symbol on his hand? Interesting...
[QUOTE=ILoveRW;308435]He story is almost as limp as his wrists.[/QUOTE] Ouch. That is not cool.
