G’Day Mates! The new spinoff of Bravo’s Below Deck is almost here, and I for one couldn’t be more excited. Entitled Below Deck Down Under, it’s set in the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands- both off Australia’s coastline. Which, if you think about it, totally makes sense. Afterall, how many stews and deckhands have we seen whose home country is Australia?
There’s Below Deck Mediterranean‘s hostess with the mostess Hannah Ferrier. (Whose firing I’m still pressed about). Below Deck Season 8 was home to fellow Aussies, Francesca Rubi, Ashling Lorger and Izzy Wouters. Alli Dore of last seasons Below Deck Sailing Yacht also hails from the land down under, but her return doesn’t make much sense as she just had a baby.
We won’t be seeing any of those ladies anytime soon. However, Aesha Scott of Below Deck Med Season 4 & 5 will be returning. In her words, “I’m the Chief Stew now, bitches!” I guess Ashling didn’t get the chief job after all. Ouch. Well, there’s always Survivor.

Aesha was always a favorite of mine. Girlfriend was sarcastic, realistic, and staunchly in Hannah‘s corner. Her boatmance with Jack Stirrup was super cute while it lasted. That is, before he went back to his old girlfriend and had a baby with her. While Aesha thought they were together, I might add. Not a good look Jack. Not a good look.
According to E! News, the new spinoff will be coming to Peacock with the first three episodes on March 17. Squeee! Not only that, but Aesha will be part of what looks to be the most attractive Below Deck cast of yachties we’ve ever seen. Including an all-new young Captain, Jason Chambers, who in the words of one of the stew’s is just “hawght.”
Captain Jason and Aesha are joined by Chef Ryan McKeown and Bosun Jamie Sayed. Joining Jamie in the exterior are deckhands Ben Crawley, Culver Bradbury, and Brittini Burton. Rounding out the crew will be stews Tumi Mhlongo and Magda Ziomek.

I’m excited to watch Captain Jason Chambers piloting a brand-new (to me) yacht, the Thalassa, all around Australia. It looks like we are in for lots of underwater adventures, plenty of crew drama, and crazy guests. Sharks and mullets and towels! Oh my!
And, unlike the last season of Sailing Yacht, it looks like we will be losing a crew member. At least if the words of Captain Jason are anything to go by. “I’m gonna terminate your employment today,” he is stonily shown saying. Let’s go!
