Bruno Duarte, the charming and handsome deckhand from “Below Deck” Season 5, won the hearts of viewers with his positive attitude and incredible work ethic. From the moment he stepped aboard, Bruno made it clear that he was there to work hard and have fun. He quickly won our hearts with his big smile and infectious personality.
But Bruno wasn’t just a pretty face – he was a skilled deckhand who was always willing to lend a helping hand. Despite facing some challenges during the season, he never let it get him down. Whether he was helping out with a tricky docking maneuver or cracking jokes with his fellow crew members, Bruno always kept things upbeat and fun.
Matt Burns was a chef on “Below Deck" season 5, and he quickly became known for his exceptional culinary skills and outgoing personality. His cooking was always top-notch, and he was never afraid to try new and innovative dishes. Matt was also known for his fun-loving and positive attitude, which made him a hit with both the crew and the viewers.
He is considered the franchise's "sanest chef," an impressive feat considering the tumultuous temperaments yacht chefs have become known for — especially those on the show. Though we don't blame them! The galley truly seems like the most stressful place to be. Cheers to Matt, who managed to stay level-headed and consistently impressed everyone with his delicious and beautiful dishes.
Bruno Duarte — Now
After his time on “Below Deck,” Bruno Duarte continued to make waves in the yachting industry. He quickly rose through the ranks and was appointed as the chief steward of the Skyfall UK in just two years, where he occasionally stepped into the kitchen as well, advancing his culinary career.
He continued to excel on the sea, working as a steward and purser on the M/Y Arados and then moving on to join the M/Y Skyra as a chief steward and purser. It's clear that Bruno has a passion for providing top-notch service and making guests feel at home on the high seas. We can't wait to see where his career takes him next!

We can only imagine that his magnetic personality has undoubtedly helped him navigate the competitive world of entertainment!
While he may no longer be working on yachts, his passion for entertaining and storytelling has found a new outlet. Who knows? Maybe his experience on “Below Deck” will inspire his next big project. One thing's for sure, with his talent and charm, David is destined for success both on and off the water.

With his obvious kindness and infectious smile, David fit in easily with the group, and his easy-going personality made him likable among both the crew and viewers at home.
Throughout the season, David proved himself to be a team player and showed a willingness to learn, even coming back to help in season 3 when the crew was suddenly short-staffed. He's remembered for successfully staying out of the crew's constant drama, and for his very sweet on-air proposal to his then-boyfriend in season 1!
