Tanner Sterback hooked up with Simone Mashile and tried but failed to get with Kate Chastain (although the two did share a smooch) this season of Below Deck. But alas, the deckhand left the boat single, just like he was when he boarded Valor at the beginning of the charter season.
But about six months ago, Tanner's luck in love turned around. The deckhand began a relationship with Corinna Pico, and the two have been going strong ever since. "I have the coolest girlfriend in the world right now," Tanner gushed about his gal to The Daily Dish backstage at the Below Deck Season 7 reunion, which you can view, above. "We've been dating for six months, and it's just been stellar."
Before you even ask, yes, Corinna has watched this season of Below Deck. Even though the deckhand's romantic exploits with Simone and Kate were front and center this season, Corinna has been nothing but supportive of Tanner as the show has aired. "She loves the show and everything like that. She's had my back," Tanner said. "Honestly, through everything that's happened, she's been my rock, and it's really great to be in a relationship like that."
Tanner's life is just so much better with Corinna in it, the deckhand said. "Yeah, she keeps me together, for sure," he shared. "She just makes me a better person."
Tanner isn't the only member of the Below Deck Season 7 crew who has found a special someone since leaving Thailand. Get all of the Valor yachties' major relationship updates in the above video before Part 1 of the Below Deck Season 7 reunion kicks off on Monday, February 10 at 8/7c.
