The cameras are finally rolling on Vanderpump Rules’ ninth season, and a lot has changed in the SURvers’ lives since we last saw them. One of the biggest changes is that Scheana Shay is now a mom, having had baby girl Summer Moon Honey Davies in April with her new fiancé, Brock Davies.
Considering the last time we saw the personality she was competing with Dayna Kathan over Max Boyens, that’s quite the lifestyle change. So naturally, we’re a little curious as to who this new man in Scheana’s life is. We did some digging, and here’s everything we know about this year’s newest cast member, Brock Davies.
He hails from Australia
Brock was born in New Zealand but he grew up in Australia. He’s a rugby player who played professionally in France and England, and he moved to the United States to pursue some big football dreams. For a while he played defense for Colorado State University’s football team and attended NFL tryouts, but paperwork and then a busted ankle deterred him… for the time being.
He was previously married
On his Instagram Story, Brock reveals that he left an ex-wife and two children, Eli and Winter, behind to pursue his pigskin dreams. In a video, the now-30-year-old says that he and his ex are on good terms, and that she even helped to support him for a while when he first moved.

He’s a personal trainer
As if you couldn’t tell by looking at him, Brock is a personal trainer. He owns two F45 gyms (a type of functional training that incorporates three fitness styles into one 45-minute class), and he also shares lots of training tips and inspiration on his Instagram account.

He’s also an entrepreneur
In addition to running his gyms, Brock also co-founded Home Body Live Fitness in 2020 when the pandemic hit. The app is an online environment where trainers and influencers can build their brands, allowing their followers to access their classes/content online in one easy-to-find place. He’s currently listed as the company’s CEO/Visionary.

He and Scheana met in San Diego
Brock and Scheana were introduced by mutual friends in San Diego, and he reportedly had no idea who she was. Later he revealed that he slid into her DMs the next day, and before anyone knew it, they were travelling to Australia. From there, he surprised her with a trip to Bali. “He did the Dirty Dancing move and plopped a kiss on me,” Scheana teases of their instant connection in the first episode of the season back.
He and Scheana got engaged this past summer
Three months after Summer Moon was born, Brock popped the question to Scheana. He proposed on their balcony under a balloon arch, and we have no doubt that we’ll see it all go down on the show since episodes were filming at the time of their engagement. In the meantime, we know that he gave her a 12.74-carat ring designed by Kyle Chan, who also designed engagement rings for Katie Maloney and Brittany Cartwright.
He’s into all things sporty
Sometimes opposites do attract, because while Scheana has said in the past that she isn’t really into working out and fitness, Brock is all about sporty activities. He rides a motorcycle, is into snowboarding, and he just generally seems like the type who is always up for an adventure. (A.K.A. he’d probably follow Tom Sandoval on a random hike in Hawaii.)

He may be best mates with James Kennedy
One look at Brock’s Instagram account and it’s clear that he loves three things: fitness, Scheana, and his daughter. So far he hasn’t shared much about joining Vanderpump Rules, but one post, from July 16, gives him away. In it he and James are sitting together at the Santa Barbara Beach Pier Harbor, and it’s the only post on the guy’s page that features any of the show’s cast members. Although, to be fair, he does credit Tom Schwartz as the post’s photographer.
He could finally be the one for Scheana
Scheana is the first to admit that she’s fallen hard for guys in the past and convinced herself that he’s “the one.” This time around though, she seems pretty darned sure that she’s gotten it right. (Third time’s a charm?) And although we’re still getting to know Brock, Scheana definitely has her smile on with him by her side. Now here’s hoping things stay that way as he gets to know the rest of this drama-filled cast when Vanderpump Rules returns…
