How much money do crews like the one on Bravo’s Below Deck make?

Season 2 of Below Deck premiered this month on Bravo, once again following the crew of a super yacht as they entertain and cater to the most elite customers around. In addition to featuring some new faces in the crew, Season 2 also features a new ship! While season 1 featured Honor (real name Cuor di Leone), season 2 stars a $10 million dollar, 154-foot private luxury yacht named the “Ohana,” which sails around the British Virgin Isles. Not too shabby!

Below Deck’s Adrienne Gang reveals horrifying date rape drug story and arrest

Bravo’s new hit series Below Deck documents the lives of crew members working and living aboard the luxurious mega-yacht “Honor.” Chief steward Adrienne Gang has earned a bit of a reputation as a hard ass (she would prefer to be considered a perfectionist), but the 30-year-old relaxed her stern persona and opened up about an extremely personal “shocking secret” in a radio interview with WFLA published earlier today. In the interview Adrienne recounts being the victim of a near overdose of date rape drugs that caused a blackout and resulted in her arrest for battery!
