Yachtie Lead Deckhand Luka Brunton joins Below Deck Down Under season 2 near the tail-end of the season to replace fired deckhand Adam Kodra. Captain Jason Chambers made the unpopular decision to fire Adam after he made repeated dangerous mistakes aboard superyacht Northern Sun. Now, move over jocks Joao Franco and Culver Bradbury, there’s a new guy in Cairns, Australia. So let’s learn more about Luka who replaces Adam on BDDU season 2.
We knew for a while Luka replaces Adam on the show because BDDU season 2 spoilers revealed leaked episode descriptions in which a new lead deckhand named Luka joins the crew after an “unpopular” firing. Furthermore, Luka on Instagram followed most of the BDDU season 2 crew all at the same time and vice versa. It turns out Luka knows Chief Stewardess Aesha Scott really well because they got their first yachting jobs together in France seven years ago. He hooked up with Aesha’s sister and also was hooking up with BDDU season 1’s fired stewardess Magda Ziomek in the past.
