Kyle Brandt was featured as a member of the cast in the eleventh season of the MTV reality television series The Real World, which was set in Chicago. He was born on January 24, 1979 in Hinsdale, Illinois. Brandt studied at Adlai E. Stevenson High School, before going to pursue higher learning at Princeton University. During his college days, he played football and majored in English, eventually graduating with his bachelor’s degree. After his initial foray on The Real World, Brandt later acted in the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives, where he played the character of Philip Kiriakis.
While he could have chosen a successful football career in college, he became more interested in theater arts instead, and had a strong ambition to become an actor. He had a tumultuous relationship with Keri throughout their stay in Chicago, but in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks that year, he realized how much he still cared for his girlfriend Nicole, who lived in New York. Also during their stint on The Real World, he shared a room with fellow cast members Chris and Keri. Among the other television productions Brandt has had roles in are Street Smarts, Anything to Win, and Miss Teen USA.
