If there’s one thing we’ve learned from Brandon, it’s that pool parties are where it’s at. Starting his big night out well before dinner, Brandon has plenty of time to scope out poolside dames, dudes, and dogs. Somehow, he towels himself off with enough time to make it to an evening luau, where things get “CrAzY”!
