Peacock's New Series Below Deck Down Under Features a Familiar Face Among the Crew
Below Deck is heading to Australia for a new series filled with major crew drama, charter guest mayhem... and mullets?
For nearly 10 years, Below Deck has cruised around the Caribbean, shown us stunning spots all over the Mediterranean, and taken us on unforgettable sailing adventures. Now, the Emmy-nominated franchise is expanding once more and heading to Australia with Below Deck Down Under premiering on Thursday, March 17 on Peacock.
With northeastern Australia's tropical Whitsunday Islands serving as the backdrop for this charter season, Below Deck Down Under will be unlike any franchise that has come before it. Underwater excursions like scuba diving, snorkeling, and some close encounters with marine life in the Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven wonders of the world, will be truly awe-inspiring to watch.
Leading the M/Y Thalassa crew is Captain Jason Chambers, who is currently the youngest captain in the Below Deck franchise. Though the crew and charter guests alike are mesmerized by Captain Jason's good looks, the Below Deck Down Under boss will be ready to lay down the law with (and maybe even terminate) anyone who's not living up to luxury yacht standards.
There's no need to get acquainted with Below Deck Down Under's chief stew as she is already a familiar face to fans. Aesha Scott, who previously served as a stew in Seasons 4 and 5 of Below Deck Mediterranean will be back to lead the interior. "I'm the chief stew now, bitches!" Aesha exclaims in the above supertease for the new series.
But uneasy lie the shoulders that wear three epaulets, as Aesha will soon learn this season. Not only will Aesha encounter some friction with chef Ryan McKeown early on, but she also has to get one of her stews in ship shape this season — all on top of some major crew drama that leaves the chief stew in tears.
Rounding out the rest of the crew is bosun Jamie Sayed, stews Tumi Mhlongo and Magda Ziomek, and deckhands Culver Bradbury, Brittini Burton, and Ben Crawley. In addition to their diverse backgrounds and wealth of experience in the yachting industry, the Thalassa crew is also "annoyingly good-looking," as one yachtie puts it in the above clip. It's no wonder there's so much smooching going on in the sneak peek!
With some of the wildest and most demanding charter guests ever, sharks in the water, and a mullet party (or two!), an epic Australian adventure awaits in Below Deck Down Under.
Below Deck Down Under premieres on Thursday, March 17 on Peacock. The first three episodes will be available on premiere day.
