As previously mentioned in Loaded Gun, casting directors from executive producer Ryan Seacrest's camp were cruising Boston's Ned Devine's at Quincy Market in Faneuil Hall searching for some fresh meat for Brody Jenner's new MTV project "Bromance."
Luke Verge, a self-described "designated party animal" and 24-year-old substitute elementary school teacher originally from Medford currently living in Las Vegas made the cut. So did 24-year-old Mattapoisett resident Gary Vaughn (pictured above).
Verge explains on his IAmOnMTV blog that he attended the "Bromance" casting call on a whim.
"I went with one of my buddies to the first casting call and someone canceled so they asked me to do an interview so I did. Looking back on it, probably one of the best accidents I've ever made," Verge gushes. "I got to meet great people and made some great friendships along the way."
Vaughn dispels any rumors that "Bromance" involves some reportedly awkward guy-on-guy action in a hot tub.
"I'm a dancer and yes I'm straight. I know it's hard to believe, but believe it. I've been dancing for 22 years now, and will continue to do so for many years to come. I'm also a teacher and choreographer."
"Bromance" premieres 9 p.m. Monday, Dec. 29 on MTV.
