It’s rare to find an of-age Bostonian who’s able to stay sober on St. Paddy’s Day, but somehow, Brandon managed to pull it off. On tonight’s “Real World,” though, the guy who vowed weeks ago not to drink for the rest of his St. Thomas experience fell off the wagon when a cute girl laid on the pressure.
Brandon admitted to a friend while on the phone that he’d been missing female attention, and that the dolled-up chicks his island-life offered just weren’t his style. So when he finally met a girl with a similar passion for tatting, he jumped on the opportunity to hang out with her. Unfortunately, Kyndra came with baggage, and after relentless efforts to try to get Brandon to drink, she succeeded. What started with an innocent cocktail ended up with the couple stumbling around the house in a drunken haze.
Brandon said he was disappointed in himself for breaking his promise to stay off the bottle, but since he proved to himself that he could drink without acting recklessly, he decided he might as well enjoy the time he had left in paradise with some alcohol every now and again. As long as he remained in check, he said, he would allow himself a drink or two. But is that actually possible for him?
