Where's the 'Below Deck' Crew Now?

Find out what they've been up to since the season ended and who they're still in touch with now.

Bravotv.com: What have you been up to since the season ended?
Kate Chastain: Since leaving Eros, I have been doing quite a bit of traveling to visit family and friends. London, Las Vegas, New York, New Orleans, and Southern California have been my favorite places so far this year. In addition to working freelance on yachts here and there, I've recently started working for a private jet charter company based out of Bermuda, which I am very excited about. I am thrilled to use my experience on yachts in a new and interesting way while moving forward in my career. The best part of this new position is that it allows me to still work freelance on yachts if I choose while integrating private jets into my schedule, although it seems that the skies may keep me quite busy. According to my upcoming flight itinerary, next month I'll be visiting Trinidad, St.Kitts, and Anguilla to name a few, but first I'm taking a vacation to Barbados over Thanksgiving before my busy winter season gets underway…or maybe I should say takes flight?
Bravotv.com: Which crew members are you still in touch with?
KC: Every time I'm in Fort Lauderdale I try to have dinner with Captain Lee and his wife. They are just so lovely and hospitable and have become to feel like my family away from home, so I enjoy checking in with them quite often. In a stark contrast to this time last year, Amy and I are also very close, although our work schedules don't allow us to catch up as much as we'd like. Connie and I live about a mile away from each other in our tiny hometown of Melbourne Beach and we have the same circle of friends, so we're always running into one another. Jennice from Ohana is still one of my dearest friends, and while I haven't seen Kat in months, we try to keep in touch. I basically still talk to everyone from Eros except for Rocky, Leon, and Dane.

Amy Johnson: After we finished the season, I took a couple of months off for some travel and much needed rest and relaxation. I had some great adventures and was able to catch up with missed friends and family. I am now currently working on a boat where I'm the cook/solo stew.
Bravotv.com: Which crew members are you still in touch with?
AJ: We just had our reunion, it was really great to see everyone and catch up! I randomly keep in touch with most of the crew, and I stay in more regular contact with Captain Lee, Kate, and Connie. Since I live in Fort Lauderdale (the "yachting capitol"), I enjoy catching up with crew members when they are in town!

Bravotv.com: What have you been up to since the season ended?
Ben Robinson: I jumped on another boat and spent a season in Greece. And I thought I was beyond being culture shocked… The most picturesque place I have ventured. Since then I have been busy at home in South Florida with my catering company.
Bravotv.com: Which crew members are you still in touch with?
BR: I am always in touch with Kate Chastain, she is a great friend of mine. Eddie, Amy, and Captain Lee too. Emile actually crashed at my pad for a little bit after the filming, he’s hysterical!

Bravotv.com: What have you been up to since the season ended?
Connie Arias: When our season in the Bahamas ended, I actually ended up staying on the boat and doing the crossing where we ended up chartering throughout the whole Mediterranean. I spent months traveling throughout Italy, France, Ibiza, and the Balearic Islands. The Med season just ended, so I recently moved back home to Florida. It feels so good to see my family and friends and also have my bed, truck, and boat!
Bravotv.com: Which crew members are you still in touch with?
CA: I keep in touch with Captain Lee, Amy, and Eddie through text and socials media, but actually spend a lot of time with Kate. We live close and became closer friends after the show, and we have been having a blast.

Bravotv.com: What have you been up to since the season ended?
Emile Kotze: I went on to explore and travel across South America (Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, and Peru). My Passport got stolen in Peru, and I then had to return to South Africa to renew it. I went back to the States to try out on a new boat since being on the Eros. Looking back I miss my time with the crew and my experience on Eros, as well as the mentor I had in Captain Lee.
Bravotv.com: Which crew members are you still in touch with?
EK: Ben is my main man -- he is like a brother to me, has good advice, and always helps out. We keep in touch a lot; he is just a legend. I try texting and calling everybody regularly, but everyone is busy with their own lives like me. I have met some crew members from previous seasons, and it seems everybody is great. My thoughts are with all of you, and I wish the best for everyone. Cheers from Emile, hope to see you all soon!

Bravotv.com: What have you been up to since the season ended?
Raquel "Rocky" Dakota: After the show, I went on a big blow out vacation trip, with no rules and no regulations! I linked up with my hot model girlfriends in Paris and just crushed Europe! One night we had a $50,000 budget that a friend of ours paid for, it was a wild night... We had 14 bottles of Dom Perignon.

Then I pulled a complete 180 and lived at an Ashram in the Netherlands for a month. I became vegan and I just meditated every day. I am happy to say that I have earned my Yoga teacher training certification! Yoga has really been my savor and has guided me into a really healthy and an even more positive direction. After Europe, I moved back to Hawaii because I realized how much I missed living right next to our mother ocean. For three months I lived in a big house with six of my best girlfriends. We just hiked, surfed, and crushed the island every day, best time of my life. While there, I was exploring the option of opening my own food truck. I had a vision of me cooking in my bikini and just surfing every day. However as time went on I realized that I wasn't actually ready to settle down, chill out, and start a business in Hawaii. I'm still young and looking for more...definitely more adventure. The idea of being tied down scares me! So I switched gears and started doing freelance yacht work again. I also started working for this photographer and I go on trips with him as a model/camera assistant to help make yacht brochures to sell private charters. It’s great, he basically just shoots me diving off the yacht and on all the water equipment!

Right now, I'm currently living in LA close to my family and friends, doing freelance work with Capt. Aleks. I'm also constantly popping in and out of Florida for chef/stew jobs. However, winter is here and I always like to switch things up! I love nature and I think it’s time for some snow! This season, you might be able to catch me up on the slopes in Mammoth or in Aspen, CO! Other than a couple mountain trips planned anything could happen. I've learned and grown a lot since my first third stew experience, but one thing hasn't changed...I'm still in love with the water and having fun with my mermaid tail! ALOHA!
Bravotv.com: Which crew members are you still in touch with?
RD: Dave has become a really good friend, I just love his energy. Amy Jo and I linked up for dinner in Fort Lauderdale and she let me stay at her cute little apartment. I'm still friends with Emile, and if you were wondering, he did actually come out to California to visit me; I loved showing him around LA. Connie constantly calls me all the time for wave forecasts and bikini tips. Eddie and I were texting a bit before the show aired, he actually really loves me! Whenever I'm in Florida, I go over to Capt. Lee's house and cook him and his wife a beautiful dinner. Leon and I still keep in touch, and I am happy to say that he's kicking ass as an executive chef on one of the world’s biggest and best yachts. And who knows maybe Kate and I will be best friends next charter season...look at her and Amy! #teameros
