Bravo is branching out their Below Deck franchise to… Pennsylvania!? No, not really. We just had some fun creating a Below Deck and The Office crossover parody featuring the employees of Dunder Mifflin as a potential yacht crew for the booze cruise charter spin-off, Below Deck Lake Wallenpaupack.

If Below Deck Season 9 stew Fraser Olender seems familiar to you, that might be because he is no stranger to reality television. Fraser appeared as himself multiple times on the British reality series Made In Chelsea back in 2016. Fraser was introduced as a gay friend of show lead Lucy Watson in the eleventh season of the show. Fraser appeared in four episodes along with his boyfriend, Tom Couch.
Below Deck‘s Captain Lee Rosbach is not present for the Season 9 premiere charter, and he reveals to first officer Eddie Lucas that he has been delayed due to a “little medical issue.” In a recent interview, Captain Lee talked about the health issue that resulted in his absence and replacement, including whether or not it was COVID related.
Below Deck returns for its ninth season later tonight, and the new crew of the superyacht My Seanna features quite the rarity: a male stew! Keep reading to find out just how rare that is over the course of 14 seasons of Below Deck and Below Deck Med. Plus, we also break down the male/female ratio for the roughly 64 deck crew members so far on the two shows!
At the start of Below Deck, Season 4, which aired in 2016, Kate Chastain revealed that she had a new female love interest: Ro Hernandez. The relationship was new at the time so Kate was head-over-heels, but unfortunately, the relationship did not last long and ended with drama and violence.
Below Deck alum Kat Held caused quite a stir when she appeared on Seasons 1 & 2 of the popular Bravo show. She was caught drinking during charter, clandestinely hooked up with Chef Ben Robinson, and had some beef from the past dredged up with fellow stew Amy Robinson. Is Kat still in the yachting industry? What is she doing now?
It’s usually hard to see, but Below Deck: Mediterranean‘s Malia White is missing the tip of one of her fingers. The yachting bosun posted a photo in August that really highlighted the fact that her left index finger is missing a fingernail because the other nails were painted a dark color, but sometimes viewers spot the missing joint while watching the show.
Season 6 of Below Deck: Mediterranean had a lot of turmoil between Lexi Wilson and the rest of the cast, but viewers didn’t get to see exactly how bad things got during filming. Back in August, executive producer Nadine Rajabi revealed to the media that she had to step in and stop a situation this season. Now, Cheif Stew Katie Flood is confirming that producers had to intervene when Lexi Wilson was getting violent towards Mzi Dempers in the crew mess.
Lloyd Spencer’s life seems to be doing well after Season 6 of Below Deck: Mediterranean. Lloyd was anxious at the end of the season because he had experienced some negative things on his last boat, and was scared that he wouldn’t be able to find another job with a crew like the Lady Michelle. Now, he’s a bosun on a smaller boat is getting on well with the crew. Lloy has also revealed a new relationship!
Last week’s episode of Below Deck: Mediterranean ended with lovable deckhand Lloyd Spencer experiencing a medical emergency. His blood pressure was elevated, he had a tight sensation in his chest, and he was extremely nauseous. Captain Sandy was extra vigilant to make sure he received care because she had a heart attack in 2018.
Sparks flew immediately during the first season of Below Deck: Sailing Yacht between Chief Stew Jenna Macgillivray. Adam is definitely no stranger to dramatic boatmances: in Below Deck: Mediterranean Season 2 he was caught in a love trianglew with Malia White, who was green at the time, and bosun Wes Walton. It wasn’t long before Adam and Jenna were hooking up because of the intense “Shmexual shmention,” but did their hot boatmance last after the charter season was over?
Below Deck: Mediterranean‘s longtime chief stew Hannah Ferrier may be coming back to the franchise after being unceremoniously fired. This time, she’s closer to her own home turf.
