It seems that former Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier was not the only Below Deck Mediterranean cast member ready to leave yachting. While Hannah made it clear on many occasions that she, “hates this f–king job,” Aesha Scott excelled in yachting and exhibited a unique ability to serve and mingle with the guests in just the right combination. She also has an unusually positive attitude in any situation. The only hint that Aesha was missing land life was her admission about desperately wanting to visit her family.
But the last six months have been nothing if not a time to reassess priorities. Why not take a chance to rekindle and old flame? And Aesha revealed a need for self-reflection as she approaches her 30th birthday.
Aesha has swapped her sea legs for a nomadic existence. She and boyfriend Scotty Dobbo are currently living in a converted ambulance in Breckenridge Colorado.
Aesha told Entertainment Tonight. “We actually went to high school together,” she said, “so, yeah, we had a little, a little crush on each other in high school but my older brother was in his year, so I was off limits to every man in the bloody school.”

Scotty, whose mother is American, moved to the States for college and he lost contact with Aesha until recently. “We hadn’t really talked until– since school, and then we just started talking again through Instagram at the end of last year,” Aesha explained, “and, yeah, it got to March and I was like, ‘well, I want to come over and see you and see if this goes anywhere,’ and then we really hit it off, so happy.”
After some time long distance, Aesha moved to Colorado to be with Scott. They are currently living together in an old ambulance that has been converted into a tiny house.
Her timing couldn’t have been better. They were reunited just as the coronavirus pandemic took hold internationally.
“Obviously, this pandemic has ruined so many things and been such a negative experience for so many people, but in terms of me and him, it’s been such a positive experience,” Aesha said.
Aesha revealed that because she and Scott both lost their jobs, they were able to devote time and energy to each other. “Because I lost the job that I was gonna be doing in New Zealand until June … and he also, ’cause he manages a bar, so he also had his job shut down,” she said, “so, it’s kind of the perfect time for me to be like, well, I’ll just come over and we’ll just drive around in the ambulance for a while. So, I think if it wasn’t for COVID, we wouldn’t be as close as we are now.”
The couple plan to document a three-month road trip around America with followers. Aesha will be sharing their adventures on her Instagram.
