Past and present Below Deck crew members reunited to celebrate the series' 100th episode on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on January 6 (clip above). And boy are we glad they did, because there was a lot to discuss from the show's seven seasons.
However, we were most excited to get all the major life updates on the crew members we haven't seen on-screen in a while, including what's going on with each of them in the romance department since, you know, that's always a major part of Below Deck.
Well, Connie Arias certainly had some news to share. The Season 3 deckhand revealed that she had gotten engaged following her time on the show. The big moment seems to have actually occurred around May 21, 2017, according to a post on Instagram from that date in which Connie wrote, "I said yes."
Connie, who now has a boat management company in Melbourne, Florida, opened up more about her engagement during an interview with The Daily Dish backstage at Below Deck's 100th episode celebration. "I am engaged to a lovely guy. We live together in Melbourne, and he's got a great family business, and I have my own business, which gives us a lot of freedom to be able to do things," Connie shared. "But he's probably out with Ellis, Amy [Johnson]'s boyfriend at the moment, probably drinking beers and having fun. See, I'm happy. I found a really great guy."
Connie and her fiancé, Scott, are still figuring out the details for their big day. "I don't have any set plans. I'm not very traditional. I'm not into the white dress and the dance and the music and the cha-cha and all the other sh-- that they do at a wedding," she said. "I'm sorry if anybody in here's done it; it's just not for me. It's not my thing."
However, she has one idea about how she'd like to say "I do." "I was like, I should have Captain Lee [Rosbach] marry us. How fun would that be? And, I mean, he's a captain, he can do it," Connie said. "He's been so good to me. He called me on my birthday the other day, not texted me, not Facebook, he called me: 'How's it goin', kiddo?' I'm like, 'You're so Captain Lee.' He's just been so close and such a good guy. That would probably be a fun thing for me to do."
This wouldn't be unprecedented. Captain Lee previously married two charter guests back in Season 1 of Below Deck. So officiating the wedding of an actual Below Deck crew member would just be that much more epic.
