Landon, M.J. going to high school prom.
Being on a reality show really will get you laid. The Real World Philadelphia‘s Landon and M.J. are going to a high school prom.
The guys will accompany “Jupiter High School seniors Alicia Bendeck and Amanda Clare to the junior-senior prom at the Jupiter Beach Resort,” the Vero Beach Press Journal reports. Bendeck won a GradCity.Com contest, and will apparently take her best friend along, for a total of five people going to prom together. The school’s guidance counselor tells the paper, “There’s going to be a swan carved out of ice, flowers will be everywhere. It’ll be very romantic.” Luckily, the contest winner is 18. For those who are keeping track, that’s a year older than the 17-year-old who the Philadelphia Daily News’ reported Landon was “fraternizing with” in Philly. Our boy is growing up, going after the older ladies now.
