Bigger boat, bigger problems? When Below Deck returns for Season 10, the crew will be welcoming charters aboard the 197-foot St. David, aka the largest motor yacht in franchise history. As chief stew Fraser Olender teased at BravoCon 2022, however, not everything will be smooth sailing.
During Fraser's visit to BravoTV.com’s digital interview stage, host Kate Chastain gave him the opportunity to share all the "exciting things" fans can expect this season.
While noting that there's "a lot to look forward to," the returning Below Deck cast member gave just a taste of the Season 10 tea. "There’s a lot of drama," Fraser hinted. "We have a very interesting dynamic, but a successful season nonetheless."
Not to worry though: There won't be any Titanic-type disasters when Season 10 premieres on Monday, November 21, at 8/7c on Bravo. After Kate playfully asked if the boat sank, the chief stew replied, "It didn’t sink, no. I’m here today to tell the tale."
So, what exactly will happen to Fraser? A press release notes that the newly promoted chief stew quickly discovers that the "learning curve on this ship is steep," leading him to question "whether he will rise to the challenge in his new role or sink in the deep waters of the Caribbean." Meanwhile, Fraser must also "navigate a major conflict between his stews as dynamic personalities arise in the interior department."
Joining him in Season 10 is "stud-of-the-sea" Captain Lee Rosbach along with a new staff, including bosun Ross McHarg, stews Hayley De Sola Pinto and Alissa Humber, deck/stew Camille Lamb, and deckhands Tony Duarte, Katie Glaser, and Ben Willoughby.
The press release also teases that Below Deck's new season will be set on the luscious island of St. Lucia, where "the crystal-clear waters and dramatically tapered mountains, the Pitons, are sure to excite even the most discerning guests."
