Below Deck's Jen Howell Is No Longer a Blonde with This Dramatic Hair Change

Andy Cohen had thoughts on WWHL about this yachtie's new look.

Jenn Howell’s Time on ‘Below Deck’

Jen Howell is still in the yachting industry — she worked her way up to chief stew of another crew! — but there's been one big change since she worked as a yachtie on Season 5 of Below Deck. It turns out Jen is no longer a blonde, and her dark hair made a big impression on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen's Below Deck 100th episode special last night on January 7.

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck on Bravo Mondays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

We knew Jen as a sunny blonde on the crew of Valor, and she looks almost like a different person with this mane of dark, shiny chestnut hair. Even Andy Cohen was a bit shocked by the hair switch. 

He asked her on the show: "Jen, you used to be blonde, right?" When Jen said yes, he replied: "OK, good, I want to make sure I'm not crazy."

Andy wanted to know more about why Jen ditched the blonde, asking her: "What kind of reaction do you get when people figure out that you were on Below Deck and is that why you dyed your hair?" Jen joked: "It's not, but it may have had a little bit of an influence, for sure." 

As a reminder, click here to see what Jen looks like with long, blonde mermaid hair and here's what she looks like now with dark locks.
