What to expect from the premiere episode?
Below Deck season 10 returns with a new set of crew. The only returning members are Captain Lee Rosbach, Chef Rachel Hargrove, and Chief Stew Fraser Olender.
Fraser used to be a stew in the previous season but got promoted in season 10. Additionally, the remaining crew members include Bosun Ross McHarg, stew Hayley De Sola Pinto, stew Alissa Humber, deck/stew Camille Lamb, and deckhands Luis Antonio “Tony” Duarte, Katie Glaser, and Ben Willoughby.
The title of the Below Deck season 10 episode 1 is Love Never Lasts at the Beach, and its description reads:
“St. David welcomes aboard a few familiar faces, including chef Rachel, and Fraser has been crowned chief stew; Captain Lee reveals a medical condition that could affect the whole season.”
In a sneak peek video, Captain Lee was seen welcoming all the members onboard. While Fraser and Rachel were ecstatic to see the size of the boat, kitchen, and cabins, Bosun Ross was nervous about making small talk. The latter confessed that he was not a social guy and got awkward around pretty ladies. Moreover, he was worried that it would be difficult for him to work around the female staff who looked gorgeous.
Speaking about “boatmances” to E! News, Captain Lee said:
“You just hope that they work out for the best. They almost never do — we've all seen that before in years past. And the only thing that you can hope for is that it doesn't cause a lot of disruption internally so that you can carry on with your duties. Otherwise, you face some real distinct possibility of having to fire one person, if not two people."
The first trailer for Below Deck season 10 showed Ross getting intimate with more than one crew member. It also featured guests not liking chef Rachel’s food, followed by a few scenes where female crew members were on the verge of a meltdown.
Besides the drama, the upcoming season will showcase the cast partying hard. However, when Captain Lee shares his medical condition with the crew, things will take a sentimental turn.
Below Deck season 10 will air new episodes every Monday night on Bravo.
