Some Surprise Guests Crashed the Below Deck Season 8 Reunion

We weren't expecting to see this at the dramatic Below Deck Season 8 reunion.

By Laura Rosenfeld

When the My Seanna crew gathered (virtually) for the Below Deck Season 8 reunion on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on February 22, they were unexpectedly joined by some very special guests.

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck on Peacock and the Bravo App.

As the yachties broke down all of the jaw-dropping moments of the charter season with host Andy Cohen, deckhand James Hough's French bulldogs were hanging out in the background at his home in Blackpool, United Kingdom. The adorable pups, whose names are Pablo, Ralph, and Reggie, could be seen lounging behind the deckhand's left shoulder and sitting atop the couch behind his right shoulder throughout the night.

Anyone who has had to make a video call for work amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic can surely relate to James' situation. But if you follow James on Instagram, you'll see that his dogs love to photobomb his pics, too.

In fact, James enjoys sharing all of his adventures with Pablo, Ralph, and Reggie on social media.

James' pup Pablo also crashed his Below Deck After Show interview, along with his mom, Elaine. Check it out in the above video.

In addition to James and his French bulldogs, nearly all of the My Seanna yachties attended the Below Deck Season 8 virtual reunion, including Captain Lee Rosbach, Eddie Lucas, Rachel Hargrove, Francesca Rubi, Elizabeth Frankini, Ashling Lorger, Izzy Wouters, and Shane Coopersmith

Rob Phillips, who stepped in as deckhand after Shane was let go earlier this season, was not able to attend the reunion because he was "in Fiji digging for gold," Andy announced at the top of the reunion.

As for James, he couldn't have been more thrilled to be a part of the reunion. "I'll be honest, I've never watched any of these reunion shows, and I think this is brilliant. This is literally like the roast of Below Deck," James said during the show. "I'm actually really glad I've logged in for this."
