Siesta Key has returned to MTV this summer 2020 for its third and juiciest season to date.
The reality series, which takes its inspiration from the early ’00s hit Laguna Beach, follows the lives and loves of a group of young adults spending their summer at the glitzy Siesta Key. This is an island off the coast of Florida, set in the Gulf of Mexico. Sounds like the perfect place for summer, right?
One of the core cast members throughout seasons 1 to 3 is Brandon Gomes.
Despite the fact Brandon has now been on our screens since 2017, fans are still desperate to know more about him, his background and his family. So, we’ve done some digging to find out about Brandon’s nationality and his family’s heritage. Read on to find out.

On the show, Brandon was dating fellow cast member Madisson Hausburg.
