As the highest-ranking member of the Below Deck crew, Captain Lee Rosbach is never afraid to be stern with crew members and charter guests alike. However, it looks like Captain Lee will lay down the law like never before in the upcoming season of Below Deck, premiering Monday, November 2 at 9/8c.
There's a moment in the above trailer for Season 8 of Below Deck where someone appears to be swimming in the water at night. We then see Captain Lee, clad in his most formal captain uniform, telling this individual, "Get your goddamn ass back to this boat — now! Your charter just ended," before storming off and slamming the door behind him on the yacht.
We can't wait to know everything about this moment, and we're not the only ones. A fan on Twitter recently asked Captain Lee to spill who he is giving orders to in that instance. "It is a Below Deck first for me ever, and the series," Captain Lee tweeted in response on September 27. "But I do not regret it, but you will have to watch to see exactly who prompted that [visceral] response."
Oh, you know we will be watching, Captain Lee!
As you can see in the above trailer, Captain Lee will have his work cut out for him with his new crew in Season 8. Joining Eddie Lucas, who returns to Below Deck for the first time since Season 3 to serve as bosun, will be new chief stew Francesca Rubi, chef Rachel Hargrove, stews Elizabeth Frankini and Isabelle "Izzy" Wouters, and deckhands James Hough and Shane Coopersmith.
But Captain Lee couldn't be more excited for the return of Below Deck. He wrote on Instagram following the announcement of the new season on September 21 that he was "going into my happy dance" knowing that Season 8 will be kicking off in just a few short weeks.
Now that is something we really want to see.
