Below Deck Down Under season 2 ended with a lot of unanswered questions when the crew departed from superyacht Northern Sun at the end of the charter season. First and foremost, fans wondered how Culver Bradbury and Jaimee Neale‘s relationship ended after the left the boat still boyfriend and girlfriend. Although Jaimee appears to have only stayed with Culver out of feeling pity for him after she cheated on him on the last crew night out when she kissed Luka Brunton. So, what happened to Jaimee after the show?
The Australian beauty caught the eye of the entire deck crew when she joined the boat to replaced fired Second Stewardess Laura Bileskalne. Despite Culver having a thing with Chef Tzarina Mace-Ralph, Jaimee expressed interest in the CEO (Chief Entertainment Officer) and made a move on their first crew night out together. From there, Culver fell head over heels for Jaimee, asking her to join him for charter season in the Mediterranean. He also asked Jaimee out with a tick-the-box love letter. However, Culver came on too strong and also didn’t impress Jaimee with his tales about spending a lot of time at his mom’s house. His cheapskate tactics to avoid paying the crew bill on nights out also endearing.
Luka entering the picture as a replacement for fired deckhand Adam Kodra also distracted Jaimee, already looking for an excuse to abandon ship with Culver.
What Happened To Jaimee After The Show & Filming BDDU Season 2
On the BDDU season 2 finale, Jaimee let Luka kiss her while they were drunk, briefly cheating on Culver. The next day she fessed up to Culver. Although Culver was mad at first, he talked to his mom and realized he wanted to still pursue a relationship with Jaimee. They left the boat together still as a couple, but Jaimee in her confessional with producers said she didn’t have strong feelings for Culver anymore, but was staying with him because she felt bad.
Well, photos from both of their Instagram accounts suggest they did go on a romantic trip together around Australia after filming wrapped up. In early June 2022, right after filming, Culver and Jaimee both posted photos in the beachside town of Broome, in Western Australia. Culver posted many more pictures of him Australia throughout July, with someone taking a lot of pictures for him. Perhaps Jaimee was taking photos for Culver? That or did she break up with him before he finished traveling Australia? We’ll have to wait for the BDDU season 2 reunion or for Jaimee and Culver to speak out about what happened and how their relationship ended.
After that, Jaimee’s Instagram shows her reminiscing about traveling in Indonesia and spending time in Rottnest Island, Western Australia in summer and winter of 2022. Jaimee also spent time studying for nursing school. She rang in the 2023 New Year with some girl friends traveling in Bali. By late January, she was camping with friends (tagged on Instagram), including the guy she’d end up dating later in the year.
Jaimee posted a photo of her on a date with a fellow Australian, Hayden Faulkner, back in June 2023. In August, Jaimee and her new boyfriend took a trip to New Zealand where they went snowboarding, hiking, and swimming with dolphins.
However, sometime in September the two removed photos of them together, sparking some to speculate Jaimee and Hayden broke up. Most recently, Jaimee’s been spending time in Perth, Australia. She’s also been sharing links to clothing and accessories she wore on the show.
