BranKenzie (Brandon and MacKenzie) is the romantic pairing of MacKenzie Hollister and Brandon Roberts. MacKenzie has a crush on Brandon but Brandon Roberts does not reciprocate her feelings.

This pairing is mostly one-sided from Mackenzie's point of view and strongly rivals Branikki, the pairing of Brandon and Nikki Maxwell. It is highly unlikely that this pairing will be official.

BranKenzie is disliked by most people, as a lot of people go for Branikki. However, some people do ship BranKenzie and likes the ship genuinely.

MacKenzie has mad feelings towards Brandon similar to Nikki, but unfortunately for her, he hasn't shown any interest in her. MacKenzie is also envious due to Brandon being closer to Nikki than her. Which makes the odds higher that this ship is not likely to ever happen in Dork Diaries.
