Below Deck Med star Luka Brunton was introduced to fans during Season 2 of Below Deck Down Under, where he caused a little bit of trouble.
Luka was brought in as a lead deckhand to replace Adam Korda, who was fired for an anchor indecent.
It didn’t take long for him to catch everyone’s eye, including stew Jaimee Neale, even though she was going steady with Culver Bradbury.
The season ended with Luka kissing Jaimee on the last crew night out.
Although Jaimee still left the Northern Sun with Culver, things were strained, as was his friendship with Luka.
There wasn’t a Below Deck Down Under Season 1 reunion, but Lukas has shed light on where he stands with his former crew members today.
Below Deck Med’s Luka Brunton shares update on Jaimee Neale relationship and Culver Bradbury friendship
Last night, Luka was a guest on Watch What Happens Live along with his Below Deck Med costar Lara Du Preez to dish about Season 8 of the show.
However, while they were answering various questions, a virtual fan wanted to know if he still talked to Jaimee and if he was still friends with Culver.
“What a question. No, I haven’t really talked to her since a while,” Luka stated. “We spoke a little bit after the show but nothing recently, and I actually spoke to Culver maybe like a month ago. Just a little catch-up. I don’t know if there’s any beef between us anymore, but yeah, a little bit unfortunate what happened, but yeah.”
As Monsters and Critics previously reported, Jaimee and Culver have both moved on and Luka may or may not be in a relationship. Luka kept quiet on that topic, likely because his boatmance with Jessika Asai has just started playing out on the show.
