Bromance is an American reality television series that originally aired on MTV from December 29, 2008 until February 2, 2009. It was developed as a spin-off of The Hills, and aired one six-episode season. The series focused on Brody Jenner, who appeared in its predecessor, and enlisted nine men to compete for the opportunity to win a close male friendship ("bromance") with him.

On February 2, 2009, it was revealed on air that Jenner had chosen Luke Verge as his new best friend. Along with Jenner's friendship and a spot in his entourage, Verge won a one year, rent-free stay in a fully furnished penthouse in downtown Los Angeles and a new Scion.[2]

Reasons for elimination[edit]

Contestant Reason for elimination Eliminated
Michael The show's only gay contestant, he felt he had nothing to contribute to the constant sex talk going on in the house, and was disappointed the show was not like The Hills. (NOTE: Withdrew before first elimination.)[3] Episode 1
Jacob Brody was not impressed with his toast at the lingerie party, and disliked his constant cursing.[3] Episode 1
Chris P. Brody felt like he was not being himself and that the two were unable to make a connection.[4] Episode 2
Jered Refused to dance during the dance-off, which led Brody to believe that he does not know how to have a good time.[5] Episode 3
Gary Didn't help cook and clean during the camping trip. Brody doubted his commitment to the show and to their friendship.[6] Episode 4
Alex Didn't perform well on the red carpet during the jeans challenge, which led Brody to believe that he would not be comfortable living the Hollywood lifestyle. Brody also felt that he was more invested in a friendship with Luke than a friendship with him.[7] Episode 5
Chris F. Performed poorly on the lie detector test, during which he revealed he did not think Brody was "real" and would take a million dollars over Brody's friendship. Brody's mom thought he was more interested in Brody's lifestyle than being a friend to Brody.[8] Episode 6
Femi During Brody's visit to his hometown, he spent a large amount of time talking about and hanging out with his cheating girlfriend. His choice to get back together with her led Brody to believe that he was more committed to his life back home than to his future in Hollywood.[8] Episode 6
