Ep. 199

Below Deck’s Bruno Duarte steps back Behind The Rope. For everyone who has not heard Part I of our sit down (Air Date December 7th, 2020), Bruno DOES - NOT - HOLD - BACK in discussing what it was like to film with and work with Kate Chastain and Captain Lee. Hint, not great. He talks about how they were on camera as well as how they were completely different off camera. No detail is spared. That conversation continues here. Bruno also opens up about his possible "near death" experience he experienced while filming his season of Below Deck. He recalls the details of that almost disastrous accident and the reaction from Producers, Kate Chastain, Captain Lee and the rest of the Cameramen and Crew. Bruno opens about about crew Drinking and discuses Malia White and Captain Sandy’s termination of Hannah Ferrier last season on Below Deck Med. He also discusses exactly what he would say if he ran into Kate or Lee today. On a lighter note, Bruno discusses those infamous charter tips, high maintenance guests, the sexual tension between crew members as well as real world instances of being “approached” by charter guests. Finally, he discusses the current status of his love life and what is next for him both on and off the water. Tune in now as Part Two of our sit down with Below Deck’s Bruno Duarte concludes.

Jai discusses how he was cast on Bravo’s original reality show, why he almost wasn't cast, and what working with Andy Cohen was really like. Once the show aired, Jai explains how life quickly changed as a result of this ratings blockbuster and the opportunities, or lack thereof, that followed when the show had ended.Those opportunities, in part, included a series regular role on MalibuCountry with legends Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin plus parts of epic television shows such asGrey’s Anatomy, Grace & Frankie and The Rookie, to name a few.Jai discusses the challenges of transitioning from reality TV to scripted roles and how he was able to make that transition successfully.Speaking of Queer Eye, no conversation of the ground breaking series would becomplete without a nod to the currentNetflix “reboot”.Just in time for Pride month, David & Jai discuss the cultural significance of The Queer Eye Legacy and what is next for Jai in his career.
