Plot Synopsis

BELOW DECK is a reality series that follows the crewmembers living and working aboard "Honor" -- a 164-foot, privately owned mega yacht -- on which these yachties live, love and work together, while tending to the ever-changing needs of their wealthy and demanding clients. While each crew member brings a different level of experience, they all share a love for this lifestyle that enables them to travel to some of the most beautiful and exotic locales in the world. Each 60-minute episode features different charter guests -- from millionaires, to entertainers to hard-partying friends -- as they move onto the boat for an at-sea adventure. The crew includes: Aleks Taldykin, the 27-year-old First Officer, who began working on fishing boats when he was 12, got his first Captain's license at 19, and is now known as a "Captain to the Stars"; Adrienne Gang, the 29-year-old Chief Steward, who is a veteran of the yacht industry and also a professional Chef who cooks for celebrity entertainers while they are on tour; C.J. LeBeau, the 32-year-old Second Engineer, who likes to explore the nightlife while in port and tries hard not to get into too much trouble; Samantha Orme, a 25-year-old Steward, who got her start as a stew working charters for her parents on a yacht that her father built, by hand, over the course of 20 years; Ben Robinson, the 31-year-old Chef, who worked under Italian master chefs in Florence and gained an apprenticeship at three-Michelin-Star restaurant The Fat Duck; David Bradberry, a Deckhand, who served as a Marine Embassy Guard for three years, which afforded him the opportunity to see the world, being stationed in places like Japan, Liberia and Italy; Eddie Lucas, a 26-year-old Deckhand, who after surviving a car accident five years ago, has learned to live life to the fullest and to appreciate everything he has; and Kat Held, the 27-year-old Second Steward, who began a career in yachting after a summer of recreation sailing in her home town of Rhode Island. Bravo aired a 30-minute sneak-preview special on Monday, June 10, 2013 at 11pm ET/PT, three weeks before official series premiered on Monday, July 1 at 10pm ET/PT. BELOW DECK returned for a second season on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo. Captain Lee Rosbach, Ben Robinson, Kat Held and Eddie Lucas return from last season along with new crew members Kate Chastain, brother and sister duo Kelley and Amy Johnson, Jennice Ontiveros, and Andrew Sturby. Plus, Captain Lee will be at the helm of a different yacht -- "Ohana," a 153-foot mega yacht -- during the charter season in the British Virgin Islands, where the crew quickly learns that providing unparalleled service to their wealthy and uncompromising charter guests is not all fun in the sun and they are only as strong as the weakest link. On Sunday, July 27, 2014 at 9:30pm ET/PT, Bravo premiered a 30-minute sneak peek of Season 2. BELOW DECK returned for its third season on Tuesday, August 25, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, three weeks after kicking off the new voyage with a half-hour special on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 at 10:30pm ET/PT. Another summer brings another charter season full of champagne, caviar and tropic thunder. Captain Lee Rosbach, Kate Chastain (chief stew), Amy Johnson (second stew) and Eddie Lucas (bosun) return from last season, along with new crew members Don Abenante (second engineer/deckhand), Connie Arias (deckhand), Raquel 'Rocky' Dakota (third stew), Emile Kotze (deckhand) and Leon Walker (chef) to make life aboard an $11 million private, luxury yacht, an unforgettable experience for their guests. The crew quickly learns they must check their egos at the dock in order to provide first-class service to their wealthy and uncompromising charter guests. From elicit affairs, to crew member firings and technical failures on the yacht, the drama on the high seas becomes too much for some of them to handle. As tensions reach a boiling point between Kate and new chef Leon, Captain Lee calls on chef Ben Robinson for help. Season 4 of BELOW DECK premiered on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo. Returning crew members Captain Lee Rosbach, Ben Robinson (chef), Kate Chastain (chief stew) and Kelley Johnson (bosun) for hijinks on the high seas. Joining the crew this season are Trevor Walker (senior deckhand), Nico Scholly (deckhand), Lauren Burchell (deckhand), Emily Warburton-Adams (second stew) and Sierra Storm (third stew). In Season 4, Captain Lee is keeping a close eye on recently promoted Kelley who is eager for redemption this season, balancing his newly gained power as bosun while managing the morale and hard work of the exterior crew. Chef Ben, fresh from the Mediterranean, is eager to jump back into his personal and professional relationship with Kate, who is coming on charter in a new and surprising relationship. Eager and young to yachting, Sierra receives extra attention onboard, which puts her under close monitoring by Kate. When a surprising personal relationship surfaces among the crew, Kate can't help but question her friendship with Emily altogether. Meanwhile, Nico and Kelley approach the charter looking for a boatmance with the same stew. Trevor focuses less on love and more on fitting in with his new colleagues which doesn't go as planned. When Captain Lee hands out a plane ticket, the crew finds out that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Season 5 of BELOW DECK premiered on Tuesday, September 5, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo, as fan favorites Captain Lee Rosbach, Kate Chastain (chief stew) and Nico Scholly (senior deckhand) team up again for another Caribbean charter aboard the 154' mega yacht "Valor," as they navigate the choppy waters of luxury yachting off the coast of St. Maarten. Joining the crew are Matthew Burns (chef), Brianna Adekeye (stew), Jennifer Howell (stew), Chris Brown (deckhand), Bruno Duarte (deckhand) and Baker Manning (deckhand). In Season 5, Captain Lee has his hands full with a greener-than-usual crew, but fortunately he can rely on trusted veterans Kate and Nico to help him manage the rough seas ahead. For Kate, the frustrating task of getting two new stews quickly up to speed puts her stress at an all-time high, which results in her engaging in some off-boat escapades with a handsome sailor. Nico's first challenge of being senior deckhand is balancing his new leadership role onboard while facing difficult circumstances with his family back home. When he realizes he has a history with new stew Brianna, crew dynamics become even more complicated as Chef Matt and deckhand Chris also begin vying for Brianna's affection. First-time deckhand Bruno and single mom-turned-stew Jen are living their dreams by working on a yacht, but the heavy workload from their bosses may turn it into a nightmare. When the extreme pressure on deck collides with a sudden emergency, Captain Lee is forced to "reconfigure" the team. With the crew reeling from his decision, the group struggles to navigate through the high-stakes drama. Will they be able to attend to all of the guests every want and need and get through another charter season, or will they crumble under the pressure? In the season opener, "The 1 Percenters," Captain Lee, Kate and Nico are joined by six new crew members as they embark on a new charter. Kate and Nico have their hands full as they are charged with training a few inexperienced crew members before the first charter of the season. Nico is dealing with a personal tragedy which is affecting him more than he's led on.
