Bravo’s Below Deck cast member did gay porn

Bravo debuted yet another reality series about rich people behaving badly last night, but Below Deck seems different, in part because it focuses on the people who have to serve the poorly behaved rich people.

Oddly for a 2013-era Bravo docudrama, the first episode was rather watchable, and even had surprising moments.

Like Million Dollar Listing New York, which features former gay porn star Fredrik Eklund (aka Tag Eriksson), the series features a former gay porn star who’s now doing more safe-for-work work.

Below Deck cast member and former Marine David Bradberry did “a handful of scenes for amateur military studio, as well as a film for Dirty Bird Pictures co-starring fellow aspiring Hollywood actor Brent Corrigan,” The Sword reports.

He has received attention before for his work in porn.

Bravo’s bio says he “is currently in a long term relationship with his boyfriend, Trevor,” who Dudetube says is gay porn star Trevor Knight.

Update: David discussed his past work on an episode of Below Deck season one.

“I was in the industry for a very brief time when I was really hard up, waiting tables,” he said, according to Bravo.  “It’s not something I’m proud of and it’s not something I like to dwell on. [But] I live without regrets. I met Trevor because of it. I wouldn’t be here with you guys had I not ever gone into that industry. It’s a very bittersweet kind of thing.”

Fellow Below Deck cast member Aleks Taldykin said, “It’s hard to reconcile because Dave is such a proper, you know, conservative, stick-to-his ways [guy]—he’s a Marine for Christ’s sake! And then saying, ‘Oh yeah, I did gay porn,’ out of nowhere, I’m like, ‘What? Did porn?'”
