‘Summer House’: Luke Gulbranson Says Des Bishop ‘Rubs Me the Wrong Way’
Gulbranson friendzoned his relationship with Berner this summer. So while he claims to be happy she found love, he still isn’t sure about Bishop. “So what are your thoughts on Des,” Carl Radke asked the group around a campfire.
“It’s hard for me to have an opinion on Des when I haven’t had a real conversation with him,” Gulbranson replied. “But based off of the little bit of talk we’ve had and how he carries himself. He kind of rubs me the wrong way.”
What does the house think of Des Bishop?
Gulbranson also can’t wrap his head around Berner’s dating timeline. She came for him when he told her they never dated and that he wasn’t interested in her romantically. “I don’t know, my thing is man, they were clearly seeing each other prior to all of us coming and spending our time together,” Gulbranson continued. “But yet, Hannah was worried about me.”
The rest of the cast also weighed in with their opinions of Bishop. “I feel like he’s the male version of her,” Paige DeSorbo said.
“He seems like a lot calmer than Hannah,” Amanda Batula observed. DeSorbo added that Bishop is very “engaged and present.” Batula and DeSorbo agreed that Bishop is completely different than Gulbranson.
Previews show Berner asking Gulbranson if he likes Bishop. But Gulbranson doesn’t seem to be a fan. Plus the women in the house share they haven’t had much interaction with Bishop either.
So was there a relationship overlap?
Gulbranson had a revelation during dinner at the house. He asked Bishop how he and Berner met and Bishop may have offered more information than Berner would have liked. “I was following her for quite a while,” Bishop said. “I noticed that she was isolating on Shelter Island. And I just said, oh I’m out this way too. Do you wanna get a coffee?”
But then he told the friends that they didn’t kiss on the first date. But, “on the second date we f**ked,” he said. Gulbranson looked floored and the rest of the cast appeared to be uneasy. The reason is that Berner and Gulbranson got into a pretty explosive fight over their relationship status at the beginning of the summer. So Gulbranson now wondered why she was so upset with him if she was already with Bishop.
Radke said he was surprised when Berner and Bishop announced they were engaged. “I think we were just as surprised as everybody else,” Radke told Access about Berner’s engagement. “There’s definitely some interesting overlap that I would have been burned at the cross for. But she’s happy and that’s all that matters.”
Berner lashed out at Radke, insisting there was no overlap. “That’s just a blatant lie. It’s just a blatant lie. I think Luke started, like, trying to save face and it was pretty disappointing to hear,” Berner told US Weekly. “No one was hiding anything. They all knew about Des the entire time. They knew when we became official. So that was very hurtful.”
