Brandon Bryant danced up a storm on Season Five of So You Think You Can Dance, but he still lost out to Jeanine Mason. Was it his lack of style? His bad attitude? Maybe the judges were still sore about the little white lie he told while auditioning for Season One.
Apparently Brandon filled in his age as eighteen on the forms–the minimum age requirement for SYTYCD contestants–but soon felt pressure from his mom to spill the beans: he was only fifteen at the time.
After that, the producers gave him the boot, but Brandon was back on stage in no time, auditioning for Season Four. He couldn’t crack the Top 20 in that round, but, as his fans will attest, he really found his footing in Season Five.
