Kyle Kingston, is a young, handsome, rich, spoiled rotten child from NYC, who probably could make a cameo in Gossip Girl, is our Beast.

It fbook lovely watching Kyle change and grow throughout the storylearn the importance of being a good person, becoming someone who judges based on personality and not by how someone looks or how much money he has.
