Who is Eddie Lucas on Below Deck?
Eddie is a well-known face to Below Deck fans. He was on the show during Season 1 but left after Season 3 following a fling gone wrong with crewmate Rocky Dakota.
Eddie finally returned for Season 8 as chief officer. Lucas' background in paddling, skiing, and scuba diving makes him the right fit for yachting. This season he is the first officer, which puts a lot more responsibility on his shoulders.
Who is Heather Chase on Below Deck?
Francesca Rubi from Season 8 has been replaced by Heather Chase this season. The reality TV debutant has been working in the yachting industry for many years now and has polished her abilities as a chief stew.
Heather expects only five-star service for her guests. She doesn't shy away from work, if and when her crew slacks. Chase has received a stamp of approval from former chief stew Kate Chastain.
It has been almost a year since a new season of the original yachting series was released and fans are excited to get back to binging on the show.
Other crew members this season include Rachel Hargrove, Rayna Lindsey, Fraser Olender, Jake Foulger, Jessica Albert, and Wes O'Dell.
