Eddie first appeared on Below Deck from Seasons 1 through 3. Fans will remember the deckhand and later bosun as a fun-loving and hard-working crew member.
However, Eddie was also a part of one of the most famous boatmances in Below Deck history when he hooked up with Rocky Dakota in Season 3. Their fling caused a lot of drama, not only on the yacht but also in Eddie's personal life when he admitted to his girlfriend back home at the time that he had been unfaithful. Eddie and Rocky later reunited at Below Deck's 100th episode celebration on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in January.
Following Season 3 of Below Deck, Eddie earned his 1600-ton license and worked as first mate of a tugboat crew. Eddie has also "done some serious growing up," according to a press release on the new season, which also notes that he is now "ready to show his crew what it takes to be a great Bosun."
Welcome back, Eddie!
