‘Below Deck Med’: Does Andy Cohen Want to See Luke From ‘Summer House’ Hooked up With Another Bravoleb?
Is Luke Gulbranson from Summer House Andy Cohen’s new favorite leading man? For the second time, the Bravo producer seemed hopeful that Gulbranson could make a love connection with someone from the Below Deck franchise.
Cohen was intrigued when Madison Stalker from Below Deck Sailing Yacht didn’t squash his question about who she was dating from the network. Cohen asked Stalker during the reunion who she was “talking to” from the Bravo family. He said she was following Colin Macy-O’Toole from Below Deck Mediterranean and Gulbranson on Instagram.
When Stalker said she wasn’t “talking to” Macy-O’Toole, Cohen leaned into the possibility that Stalker could be striking up a romance with Gulbranson. Stalker later confirmed on Instagram she and Gulbranson were not romantically linked.
Cohen suggested Jessica More check out Luke Gulbranson
Cohen asked third stew Jessica More from Below Deck Mediterranean if she’s connected with anyone else in the Bravo family. “Do you have your eye on anybody on Bravo,” Cohen asked More during the Watch What Happens Live After Show.
She took a few moments to think but said she didn’t. “No? Have you seen Luke from Summer House?” he asked. More said she hadn’t seen Gulbranson but wondered if he’d hook her up. “Take a look,” Cohen replied.
More strikes up a steamy romance with deckhand Robert Westergaard this season. She echoed a statement he made during the latest episode. “They always say don’t screw the crew,” she told Showbiz Cheat Sheet. “It will get a little interesting, and entertaining … and steamy,” she said about the romance. “It’s definitely a ‘boatmance’ that happened.” She added that it was “intense.”
Hannah Berner wasn’t thrilled that Cohen was happy about Stalker and Gulbranson
Hannah Berner and Paige DeSorbo from Summer House dished about Stalker during one of their “Giggly Squad” Instagram Live sessions. Berner and Gulbranson had a hot summer, which led to a very complicated romance. Their on-again, off-again romance continued off-camera. Berner admitted to not being entirely sure where they stood romantically.
She shared that people immediately sent her messages about Stalker and Gulbranson after the Below Deck Sailing Yacht reunion aired. “So quick drama I wanna address from Bravo last week with a girl named Madison from a Below Deck show on a reunion,” she recounted. “Andy said, ‘What’s your relationship status?’ She said, ‘I’m currently talking to someone. And he’s from the Bravo universe.’”
“So, Luke that day called me twice so I wasn’t worried necessarily,” Berner said. “But then I did a little recon. He wasn’t even following her. And Luke doesn’t play games like that, he’ll follow anyone. So I knew in my heart of hearts [they weren’t talking].” But she added that she was a little annoyed that Cohen seemed delighted that Stalker could be dating Gulbranson.
Berner thought perhaps Stalker was talking to Westergaard. She joked about how he sent her a direct message. Stalker has yet to publicly confirm who she was dating.
