No sooner did Ben Robinson break free from the Ionian Princess (and Danny Zureikat’s petulant whining) on Below Deck Mediterranean than he was climbing aboard Valor to sail the Caribbean for season 4 of the original Below Deck. And, he admits, he’s exhausted.
“It’s a lot,” confesses Ben of hopping from one charter season to another with no break in between. “I mean, I think I was just kind of on a rollercoaster ride when I showed up.” Usually, the crew get a chance to “gather themselves” in between filming seasons. But not so for Ben. “I was just thrown straight into the fire again. It was different.”

Thus, we may see an even crankier version of Ben on season 4 of Below Deck than ever before. There will be NO more printed menus! He will be cooking NO more impromptu birthday cakes! He is, in effect, dunzo playing nice with the
totally dysfunctional casts assembled around him.
Ben told Bravo’s Daily Dish that while aboard Valor, “I was probably a little more cranky maybe, yeah.”
Captain Lee Rosbach, who followed Ben and crew during their Med season (and hilariously tweeted along the way), agrees that Ben’s attitude left a little something to be desired in the Caribbean. But, hey – if Captain Lee really did watch the Med season closely, he shouldn’t be too surprised about Ben (or viewers, for that matter) being utterly exhausted with the nonstop drama that occurred on board.
What Captain Lee didn’t understand was who Ben chose to have a romantic liaison with in the Med! Hint: not Hannah Ferrier, despite her
many desperate attempts to snag Ben. “I didn’t see the Tiffany [Copeland] thing coming at all. That was just out of the blue,” says Lee.
Ultimately, Ben says of the Med and Caribbean seasons that “They were both very tough. I survived, I guess. It’s good. It was fun.”
