Meet New Deckhand Kyle Dixon

You know what they say: When one deckhand is fired, another one is hired. Well, perhaps that's just what Below Deck fans say.

But that's exactly what happened during Tuesday night's episode. After the Valor crew completed the previous charter one man down following the firing of deckhand Trevor Walker in last week's episode, Kyle Dixon arrived to save the day and fill his position. 

Kyle, who hails from Manchester, England, made quite the impression during his maiden voyage on Below Deck. So what did his immediate supervisor, bosun Kelley Johnson, really think about the new deckhand? "Kyle was a great deckhand. He's a character. He was able to turn anything really, really funny, and it was a very nice change from Trevor," he told Bravotv.com. "No matter how much drama happened with him or craziness, he was 1,000 percent better than Trevor." 

Of course, Kyle's addition to the Valor crew brings the count of Brits on board to three, along with Ben Robinson and Emily Warburton-Adams. They, along with Aussie Lauren Burchell, have helped to make this one of the most international Below Deck crews ever. "I love the British people, I love London. I've been there. So it's kind of a nice change," said Kelley, who playfully pokes fun at Kyle's thick British accent in Tuesday night's episode. "The past two boats I've worked on have been American flags, so all I've worked with are Americans the past few boats and the boat I'm on now. So working with an international crew is a lot of fun, actually." 

But working with any kind of crew is not all fun and games, as you can see in this drama-filled clip from Tuesday night's episode, below.

It's One #BelowDeck Catastrophe After Another!
