Brandon Belt talks a big game off the field – whether it be karaoke, ping pong, or now, miniature golf.
A few hours later, Belt tweeted:
Did he get hacked? Did he just really enjoy the “cinematic arts” of Magic Mike?
No. It turns out that unlike his season last year, Brandon did not emerge a champion. Instead, he lost a bet to notorious prankster Gary Brown and his Twitter account was the one to suffer. Moments later, he issued this “retraction”:

- He watches The Bachelor
- He loves Taylor Swift
