alum and all-around reality television personality Brody Jenner
is starring on a new reality competition series called Bromance
set to premiere on MTV on December 29. Bromance
takes a bunch of guys from all over the country, hauls them to Hollywood for the chance to "befriend" Jenner and become a member of his entourage.
Defined as a close but platonic relationship between two men, the concept of bromance was coined in the 1990s and crept into mainstream usage and pop culture with such friendships as Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, Gregory House
) and James Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard
) on the Fox medical dramedy House
, and, of course, Jenner and fellow The Hills
regulars Justin Bobby and Spencer Pratt
takes a successful TV format and turns it on its head in an irreverent way that would only work for MTV," MTV top gun Liz Gateley said. "Brody is the perfect fit for this concept -- he is type of guy everyone wants to hang out with and we're excited to further solidify our long-standing relationship with him that started with The Hills
The boys of Bromance
will move to a big Hollywood bachelor pad where they'll compete in a series of group and individual challenges to test their trust, reliability, and compatibility to determine who will best fit into Jenner's posse. Just like The Bachelor
or any romantic-themed show, Bromance
will also feature “group dates” and “alone time” with Jenner to ascertain compatibility.
"As every guy knows, close male friendships aren't just a quirky television plotline or a running gag in the movies,” executive producer Ryan Seacrest said. “Bromance
is the first reality series to fully explore the essence of these life-long friendships."
Jenner, 25, was on the short-lived show The Princess of Malibu
, The Hills
, and at times Keeping up with the Kardashians
