How to Watch

Watch Below Deck Mediterranean on Mondays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app

During a July 8 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the deckhand from Spain opened up about what it was like to meet his name twin — a VIP manager for Republic in Charleston, South Carolina — in person. While they might be from separate sides of the country they were able to finally connect.

How Below Deck Mediterranean's Joe Bradley met Southern Hospitality's Joe Bradley

While both men have very different jobs, they do have some things in common. They both have a love for hospitality, they both appear on shows on Bravo, and just happen to really like each other. During his appearance on WWHL on Monday, Below Deck Med's Joe said of the other, "What a guy."

The two men met up in Miami one day, where they were able to finally hang out. "So his girlfriend was DJing at, like, this venue in Miami," BDM's Joe told Andy Cohen. "I said, 'Brother, get your ass here.' And there it was. I met the American Joe Bradley."

But, it's just a little unclear who BDM's Joe Bradley was referring to when talking about SH's Joe Bradley's "girlfriend." Joe has tried to find love on Southern Hospitality with coworkers Maddi Reese and Mia Alario. While Joe and Summer House's Danielle Olivera called it quits earlier this year, Joe has yet to come forward with who he is dating now. However, Maddi is a DJ — so BDM's Joe Bradley could be referring to her.

BDM's Joe actually captured photos from the first time they met. Joe took to Instagram on May 2, where he posted a photo of him standing next to SH's Joe while wearing black shirts and khaki pants. In the second photo in the carousel, Joe posted a photo of him, Joe, and Maddi, surrounded by friends. Finally, Joe shared a video of him with his arm around Joe, while Maddi DJ'ed behind them.

"To many more son," BDM's Joe wrote in the caption of the post.

SH's Joe took to the comments of the post, where he agreed with his name twin. "Long lost brothers from across the pond," SH's Joe wrote.
