Below Deck

Drama, exciting and new…come aboard, we’re expecting you! Where y’all as excited as I was for the season premiere of Below Deck? Those Captain Lee, Stud of the Sea ads on Bravo have been quite a tease. Thankfully, our wait is over. Bring on crystal blue water, Captain Lee lectures, millionaire antics, and sunny insanity! 

Before we get into the recap let’s meet the crew, shall we? Returning this season are a few fan favorites. Adorable bosun Eddie Lucas is back, as is Kate Chastain and her bitchy resting face. Kate’s least favorite stew Amy Johnson returns as well. Of course, it wouldn’t be the show without everyone’s favorite captain! Joining the group are some folks who are sure to bring the crazy. Raquel “Rocky” Dakota is a former competitive diver and surfer who went to culinary school in the hopes of being a yacht chef. Unfortunately, this summer she’s just second stew. She’s also likely to be in a 5150 hold at some point in the near future.


Below Deck season 3 cast

Season 3 of Below Deck is almost here!! Bravo has finally released the bios and photos of the upcoming cast, which will include Captain Lee Rosbach, Kate Chastain, Amy Johnson, and Eddie Lucas, as well as newcomers Don Abenante, Connie Arias, Raquel “Rocky” Dakota, Emile Kotze, and Leon Walker.

Aboard the Eros, a 161 foot yacht worth $11 MILLION, “the crew quickly learns they must check their egos at the dock in order to provide first-class service to their wealthy and uncompromising charter guests. From elicit affairs, to crew member firings, and technical failures on the yacht, the drama on the high seas becomes too much for some of them to handle. As tensions reach a boiling point between Kate and new chef Leon, Captain Lee calls on Ben Robinson for help.”


Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes The Road to Riches

Bravo announced a long list of returning and new shows this afternoon!

The four returning shows are Ladies of London, Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, Don’t Be Tardy, and Manzo’d with Children. I, for one, am excited about the first three shows on that list. Not so much the last one… HAHA… and I know the majority of you just let out a huge groan over that one as well.

The new shows include a Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes road trip, a “mature” take on MTV’s My Super Sweet Sixteen, new franchises for both Below Deck and Married to Medicine, a cooking competition show, drama surrounding a ski resort, a parent teacher organization, a group of tour guides, and more.

It was rough waters for rookie reality TV members and siblings Amy Johnson and Kelley Johnson, who relied on each other to survive a tumulus season of Below Deck – which included gossiping Kat, heartbreaker Jennice, and crazy crazy charter guests! 

Amy and Kelley reflect on their first season and how they processed working in such stressful circumstances. It turns out having a blood is thicker than water ally definitely worked to their advantages. Neither shares whether or not they’d come back for another season, however. If they’re invited, that is. Rumor has it Bravo plans to shake up the crew every season to prevent the drama from going stale, but keeping a couple key players like Captain Lee and Chef Ben Robinson

Amy admits she had reservations about joining the crew of The Honor. “For me, [the cast] already had this established relationship so they were really in tune — especially with Captain Lee. When your leader already feels the vibe with those three, it was kind of like odd man out and [I had] to prove that I can earn his respect.”
