Below deck performers who have shown the most growth

well done Under deck The series changed the lives of many sailors in the industry forever. Brought out of the darkness, each squadron’s crew members board their temporary homes, ready to work hard and play hard. However, these yachts are slightly different from their predecessor vessels as cameras occupy every possible space within each vessel.

These cameras capture literally everything, from the good to the bad. Once the season is over and the editing process is complete, the series will air, showing viewers who each Yachtie is…or not. Because of their sympathy, some of these crew members are then asked back to film a second season. On even rarer occasions, some stayed with the franchise for years.

Some of these long-time personalities have one thing in common: they have aged like a charter guest’s fine wine. In a world where outward appearances are important, please note that I am not primarily talking about a person’s looks. By “aging well” I mean that these crew members have shown some growth since their first appearances. Whether that growth is physical, emotional, and/or professional, these are the best Below Deck cast members yet.

Aesha Scott first appeared in Below Deck Mediterranean Season 4 worked underneath Chef Stew Hannah Ferrier as the second stew. She was rad in a way that was new to the Below Deck series. That is, her words were meant in a way that meant no harm to others, instead they were just raw, hot references to how she herself saw and felt about life.

Aesha was unfiltered, yet worked hard. She quickly gained the respect of her department head, but some viewers were divided. Many found Aesha’s humor a little too much, while others loved and appreciated her candor.

After Aesha’s first season, she reappeared in the middle of the fifth season of Below Deck Mediterranean. By this point, viewers were getting used to her humor, which even diminished somewhat when she revealed that she had been a victim of sexual assault. Aesha is currently the chief stew on Below Deck Down Under, where she has now starred for two seasons.

After her new role as department head, viewers are no longer torn about her feelings towards Aesha. Thank God, her humor is still intact, although her leadership skills have only gotten better. Additionally, Aesha’s heart of gold is now clearly on display as viewers watched her love and protect her crew after two incidents of sexual assault on Season 2 of Below Deck Down Under.

Aesha has truly grown on viewers and is now one of the best Chief Stews in the entire franchise. Because of her professional advancement, wisdom, and heart, Aesha’s Below Deck Glow Up is the best on this list. That’s our “compliment sandwich coming soon” for you, Aesha.

Then Hannah Ferrier

Hannah was a boss at Below Deck Mediterranean first season. Many viewers initially found Hannah to be lazy. She always got the job done, but the cameras often focused on her dislikes for others, alongside her hatred of tablescapes. Comparing her first appearance to that of the original series Chief Stew, Kate Chastain, Hannah fell short.

Hannah was brought back throughout season five. In the fourth season, their entire interior became like a close-knit family. Seeing Hannah finally feel comfortable on her team was like a breath of fresh air. Her performances featured Hannah’s struggles with anxiety and depression, as well as her constant arguments with Captain Sandy Yawn.

In the middle of Season 5, Captain Sandy fired Hannah after a prescription bottle of Valium and a CBD stick were found in Hannah’s belongings.

Hannah’s time in the Below Deck series has always been a godsend. Personally we liked her, but overall we couldn’t be happier that she left the show. The reason for this is that she was never really successful under Captain Sandy, but Hannah is currently living her best life.

Since her controversial firing, Hannah has married and raised a child adorable daughter into her family. She has also acted in other series. These new appearances include The Real Love Boat Australia and The Traitors Australia. Hannah’s below deck glow happened after filming, but it’s just so awesome that we couldn’t include her in this list.

Then Kate Chastain

As Kate appeared for the first time As Chief Stew on Below Deck season two, her signature mockery, sense of style, and strong work ethic helped change the doomed new series for the better. In fact, when Captain Lee Rosbach first met Kate, he noticed that she looked like a charter guest.

Kate had always displayed an air of sophistication and somehow even managed to pull off a neat look simply by running a pencil through her tousled, wet morning hair. While some viewers found Kate’s style and wit charming, others found her just too mean. Sadly, after a toxic seventh season in which Kate battled misogynistic men, she left the show.

While Captain Lee mentioned Kate’s resemblance to a charter guest back in season two, her performances since leaving the series have only reinforced his long-dead opinion. Recently seen on The Traitors, Kate’s style was second to none. Luckily, her snappy wit, wit and ability to spot others on dirt was also seen.

Like Hannah, Kate also contributed to the filming of her family contributions. Sullivan Cay was born just four months ago and Kate is already back at work filming a new series alongside Captain Lee called Couch Talk. With her ongoing work ethic and ever-evolving sense of style, Kate’s Below Deck glow was definitely an entertaining sight both during and after her time on the series.
