During the constant cast change-ups in Season 5 of Below Deck Mediterranean, one yachtie stayed consistent: Alex Radcliffe.

Actually, that's not entirely true. Alex did change positions during the season, but only slightly — and it was a promotion. In Episode 18, he became lead deckhand for the last charter after Malia White decided to reward his efforts and excellent work ethic.

"Alex, you have it and you've shown it. The crew respects you. The crew comes to you when they need a laugh. And I can count on you," Malia shared.

Alex was, of course, thrilled to receive the title. "It's f-cking awesome," he said in a confessional. "It's awesome that she's able to trust me and wants me to be her lead deckhand. Getting this role makes me feel like I can actually grow in this industry."

So, what is the superstar up to these days? Keep reading to discover everything Alex Radcliffe has been up to since departing The Wellington.

Who is Alex Radcliffe from Below Deck Med?

According to his official bio, Alex is a Massachusetts native who grew up in a blue-collar community. He got into yachting via a friend in the industry. 

"Although he initially employed a 'fake it 'til you make it' mentality, Alex is a quick learner and worked his way up the ladder," his bio reads. "He works each charter with pride, and has his sights set on eventually becoming a captain."

"Admittedly stubborn and a shameless flirt, this life of the party works as hard as he plays," it offers.

What happened to Alex Radcliffe in Below Deck Med?

Besides a flirtationship with Christine "Bugsy" Drake (they shared a smooch at one point, but mostly remained just-friends), Alex's Season 5 storyline was fairly drama-free.

“I like that Alex steps up to the plate. He’s starting to be the guy that I can throw anywhere," shared Malia in Episode 8.

During Episode 9, Alex shared how at-home yachting makes him feel.

"Coming out of high school, I had a 1.9 GPA. I had a learning disability while growing up, so I had a tough time," he shared. "Once I got into yachting, I just thought that I was in my element. I didn’t have to open up a book to know what I was doing."

While he once had a podcast with Below Deck Med's Anastasia Surmava, these days the former deckhand works as a boat broker at Monahan's Marine in Weymouth, Massachusetts. The company, which launched in 1961, is a family-run business.

Alex announced his new career move in December 2022.

“Excited for the new chapter in my life becoming a boat broker for Monahan’s Marine,” he wrote via Instagram at the time.

Who did Alex Radcliffe date on Below Deck?

During Season 5, Alex had a flirtationship with Bugsy. After she asked him to finish some toast leftover in the galley during Episode 8, he told her he’d only dig in if she’d “fall in love with me.”

Bugsy said no, which meant no bread for Alex.

“I think Bugsy has, like, some type of like, maybe a little into me? I do believe this," he shared, later saying "Love you, Bugs," before bed.

During Episode 15, the duo finally kissed on a crew night out, but that's as far as their relationship went.

"Me and Bugsy, we've seen each other after filming, just like catching up, getting coffee and stuff. I think we just kept it very good friends afterwards and just kind of stayed in touch. We were very realistic that we live in two different parts of the world, and we're gonna do our own thing," Alex said during the Season 5 reunion. "Am I still into Bugsy? Yeah, I think she's hot. I want to hang out with her, absolutely. I'm realistic. You know what I mean? I know what it is."

Is Alex Radcliffe still friends with the Below Deck Med cast?

Everyone loved Alex during his season on Below Deck Med, and he still loves his fellow crew members.

"You gotta fake it to make it in this world and that’s what me and Peter Hunziker did as deckhands," Alex joked in a 2023 Instagram throwback post. "Couldn’t have said it any better," Malia responded, while Jessica More commented "Awww my bros."
