Jessika Asai has addressed her Below Deck Med Season 8 finale behavior after enduring much backlash from fans.

This season of Below Deck Med ended with Jessika making a fool of herself because of Luka Brunton.

To be quite honest, it was a theme for Jessika once Luka turned his attention to her following Natalya Scudder’s exit.

In the finale, Jessika goes on a drinking bender because she is mad at Luka, only to hook up with him at the end of the crew night out.

As Monsters and Critics previously reported, Below Deck Med fans blasted Jessika for not having self-esteem or self-worth.

Now, she’s speaking out on the subject and reflecting on her Below Deck Med journey.

Despite all the drama, chaos, and craziness, Jessika’s super grateful for the opportunity Below Deck Med opportunity.

“As you may or may not have witnessed, the season finale was nothing short of insane. 😔 I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve made my fair share of mistakes, and I’m not perfect. I’ve learned that I often act on impulse, but I’m actively working on growing from those experiences rather than dwelling on them,” Jessika expressed.
