What happened to Brandon McMillan on ‘Lucky Dog’?
Brandon decided to part ways with CBS after he felt the show was not going in the same direction as he had hoped. In October, he took to Instagram to announce his exit from the show.
“As the years went on big money started pouring into the show which meant more cooks in the kitchen making decisions. This is where Hollywood can take a great idea and turn it into a money-driven business. When the fun gets taken out of a tv show then it’s no longer fun to show up,” he wrote.
Brandon also thanked his fans for their support as he wrote, “I cannot thank you all enough for your years of support you all have given me. You were there to see me cry when I said goodbye to Sandy… when I said goodbye to Charlotte… when I said goodbye to little Olive… and countless other dogs. I always made it a point to wear my heart on my sleeve and not hold back my emotions. Being as real as I possibly can be the most important thing for me because you the viewers know acting from reality.”
Brandon McMillan comments on new hosts:
Brandon decided to comment on new hosts after several fans messaged him to come back on the show. “Let me just start by saying to go easy on the new hosts. I don’t know who they are but it’s not their fault. They were offered an opportunity and took it. Anyone would have done the same. One of the main complaints you all seemed to have today was how you think the show is just a carbon copy rip off of what myself and a few others started from the ground up,” he wrote.
He continued, “Another complaint you all have is how you said it now seems less about the dogs and more about product placement constantly selling you something. Well after working in the entertainment business since I was 19 years old I’ve learned one vital thing… the viewers are not stupid. They’re smarter than Hollywood producers think. Authenticity is everything when making reality tv so either be authentic and original or don’t be on tv.”
As of now, Brandon does not have any plans of coming back to the show.
