The Wellington crew's latest addition to the team is a familiar face to Below Deck Mediterranean fans.
Aesha Scott returned in the August 24 episode of Below Deck Med to help out in the interior as the second stew. Her arrival comes after chief stew Hannah Ferrier was dismissed and then-second stew Bugsy Drake was promoted in the August 17 episode of Below Deck Med.
"Your favorite bush pig is baaaack!" Aesha exclaimed upon her return in the August 24 episode.
Fans will remember Aesha from Season 4 of Below Deck Med where she also served as second stew. Aesha wowed the crew, charter guests, and fans alike with her positive attitude and, shall we say, unique sense of humor.
Aesha also memorably got into a romance with deckhand Jack Stirrup in Season 4. Their relationship ended after that charter season. Jack welcomed his first child, son Phoenix Sidney Stirrup, with girlfriend Kelly Hidge in April. Aesha went public with her new boyfriend, Scotty Dobbo, in July.
The Wellington crew has experienced many changes this season of Below Deck Med. After Lara Flumiani quit as second stew early on in the season, Captain Sandy Yawn brought in Season 2 stew Bugsy to join the interior. Following Hindrigo "Kiko" Lorran's dismissal, Tom Checketts, signed on as the new chef while visiting girlfriend Malia White in Mallorca.
