Kate Chastain

Joao Franco Below Deck Mediterranean

Can you believe we are coming to the end of the Below Deck Mediterranean charter season? What a season it has been! Not only have we been treated to the beautiful vistas of the South of France, we have been treated to some beautiful drama from the crew and the guests.

Last season, chief stew Hannah Ferrier was the Queen of Boat Drama, mooning over bosun Conrad Empson. Hannah was freqeuntly derelict in her job duties, taking smoke breaks galore–and even took to her bed for a day with a bad case of Mediterranean Love Sickness. Try that with your boss and see what happens! This season, Hannah has seemed more committed to her job, boldly announcing at the start of the season, “I feel like this charter season my job is my number one priority.” Do Hannah’s crewmates think she has lived up to her lofty new employee performance goal?

Captain Lee Rosbach & Kate Chastain Are Hosting A Below Deck Cruise For Fans In June 2020

Have you always wanted to be a charter guest on Below Deck? Me too, but, unfortunately, that’s way out of my budget. Although I would just love to hang with Captain Lee Rosbach and Kate Chastain in person.

Now, that’s actually a possibility. This time Captain Lee and Kate will not be on the clock. Well, actually, they will be, but not as captain and first stew. Instead, they are hosting a week-long cruise for Below Deck fans.

Joao Franco Reveals His Below Deck Mediterranean Dream Team

It’s the question that gets posed time and time again to the cast of Below Deck and Below Deck Mediterranean.  Who’s on your yachtie dream-team?  For this season, the Med crew was pretty solid after microwave operator Mila Kolomeitseva left.  Anastasia Surmava did an admiral job as chef until she stepped aside for Ben Robinson to saunter back into our livesJune Foster only made a favorable impression on smitten Colin Macy O-Toole, but her tenure was also short-lived.

So we are finishing the season with the original squad, plus an actual chef.  Captain Sandy Yawn has been dishing out the hugs in proper mother hen fashion.  What can be better than that?  Well, according to Bosun Joao Franco, there is one person that could improve at their job.

Captain Lee Rosbach Shoulder Surgery

As invincible as Captain Lee Rosbach seems on Below Deck, he is still a human being at the end of the day. And, unfortunately, he too has aches and pains.

Recently, the Below Deck fan favorite revealed that he got surgery on his shoulder. Currently, he’s in recovery. Hopefully, he will be all healed up by the time Below Deck returns for Season 7 next month.

Below Deck Returns For Season 7 In October- Meet The Cast & Check Out Their Photos

The reality TV gods surprised us with a new Below Deck Mediterranean episode tonight and a Below Deck trailer for Season 7 in the same day. We. Are. Not. Worthy.

As per usual, Captain Lee Rosbach and Chief Stew Kate Chastain are back for a new season. For the most part, it’s a whole new cast, except for Ashton Pienaar who will return with a promotion as the crew’s bosun. They pretty much had to ask Ashton back since he almost died last season. That, and he kept us all entertained with his hookups throughout the season. How will he handle a powerful position this time around? No, that was not a reference to his crow’s nest hookup positioning. But, yes, Ashton will “hang out” with another female coworker in the crow’s nest. But he is far from the only person getting physical next season.

Caroline gets many unwelcome surprises

Kate Chastain’s favorite ex stew is making the news for her troubles again. If you remember Caroline Bedol at all from Season 6, she was the one that did the least amount of work and complained the most. To be fair, she did have an injured and swollen attitude foot.

It seems like for most people, being on a show improves their lives but not Caroline. After having a nervous breakdown on national TV with mean girls Kate and Josiah Carter taunting her, she went back home only to be homeless and asking for donations from fans.

Josiah

Josiah Carter might be the perfect man. Trained butler, check. British accent, check. Loves his mama, check. The Below Deck yachtie also made quite an impression on our High Priestess of Snark, Kate Chastain as well. And that’s no easy challenge, right Caroline Bedol? During his season, fans watched as Josiah navigated through horrible drunken guests. We saw him rise above petty crew members. Josiah also confronted bullying issues he had during his youth. And then there was… the Gold Speedo. Shhhh, I think I hear angels singing behind me.

Anygoldendaddy, after he toured Tahiti under silver fox, Captain Lee Rosbach, Josiah found himself watching, Below Deck Mediterranean. Josiah discovered something to like in Captain Sandy Yawn and the rest of the cast. Sounds like my favorite the second stew might want to continue his journey, but with different scenery this time.
