Below Deck Mediterranean is finally here and that means new hookups, new over-the-top client requests, and new drama! While the new crew looks ready to handle the high seas of the Mediterranean, there's one familiar face who's back and better than ever - Chef Ben Robinson! He's stolen our hearts during many charter seasons, and we have no doubt he'll continue to do so while sailing in the Med as well (just don't ask him to cook beef cheeks). Ben may be a Below Deck veteran, but that doesn't mean we know everything about this charter chef. Here's our list of the seven things you need to know about Ben Robinson before the Below Deck Mediterranean premiere!
1. Captain Lee is Team Ben and Kate
2. But Ben Loves Kate's New GF
Though we think he may be a little jealous.
3. He Plays the Didgeridoo
We all know Ben's talented in the kitchen, but we never would have guessed he could play indigenous Australian instrument, the didgeridoo!
4. He's an Instagram Foodie
If you're a food porn addict, check out Ben's instagram account, @benstogram, for some mouthwatering creations!
5. He Takes Time to Stop and Smell the Roses
With all the amazing places Ben gets to visit on charters, he makes sure to share beautiful travel photos from all around the world.
6. He Hasn't Always Rocked His Signature Hairdoo
Though Ben is rarely seen without his coiffed doo, he shared a throwback of himself with some lucious locks.
7. He's Just as Silly Off Camera
Ben's sense of humor is famous for lightening up even the most difficult of charters, and we're not surprised he's still the same jokester off camera!
Don't forget to watch the Below Deck Mediterranean series premiere May 3 at 9/8c!
