A beloved Below Deck crew member is setting sail.
Chef Ben Robinson says that he won't be returning to the show next season. "I’ve decided to take a break from the show this season. I will continue to focus on my career as a chef and holistic nutritionist, and I’ll have a lot of exciting news on these fronts soon!" Ben said in a statement to The Daily Dish. "The door is always open for Below Deck, and I wish the crew all the best with the upcoming season."
Ben has served up plenty of delicious dishes and drama as the crew's chef on four seasons of Below Deck and the inaugural season of Below Deck Mediterranean. Since Season 4 of Below Deck ended, Ben has continued his sea romance with Emily Warburton-Adams on land. The two have been working together on hosting and catering events, as well as starring in their very own cooking show on Ben's YouTube channel.
