How Captain Lee became TV’s favourite yacht captain

It was supposed to be a simple delivery job from Fort Lauderdale to St Maarten. But when the first captain lined up to take the helm of Bravo’s hit new series dropped out, it was captain Lee Rosbach who became the unlikely star. Holly Overton catches up with Below Deck’s beloved captain…

Captain Lee or ‘Stud of the Sea’, as he’s known among fans, is the frontman of superyacht reality series Below Deck . Famed for his no-nonsense attitude and sharp one-liners, Captain Lee is the longest-serving captain on the show and has been a staple cast member since the first season began filming in 2011. But it was only by complete accident that he first landed the role.

“I didn’t apply for the job. I didn't even audition,” Captain Lee explains. At the time, he was the captain of the 50 metre Benetti motor yacht Cuor di Lione when he received a phone call from the owner. “He said there’s a TV network that wants to charter the boat for eight weeks (…) they've got their own captain and crew and all you need to do is drop the boat off in St. Maarten.”

But when Captain Lee arrived in St. Maarten, the captain Bravo had originally lined up to front the first series had pulled at the last minute. “Somebody said, ’why don't we use the old guy’,” Captain Lee explains. As a result, he was slingshotted into the spotlight – and almost a decade later he’s still at the helm. “We didn't know whether the show was going to be a hit or be a one and done. We had no clue. But after that first season it just took off like a rocket.”

Below Deck follows the lives of a yacht crew over an intense eight-week charter season. Captain Lee himself once described it as “Downton Abbey on the water” for the way it lays bare the upstairs-downstairs culture of yachting. The series’ winning formula of badly behaved guests, crew love triangles and Verve Cliquot-fuelled feuds has continued to pull in millions of views, transforming it into one of Bravo’s flagship shows. Despite his newfound fame, Captain Lee is reluctant to call himself a celebrity. “I'm just a captain doing his job,” he says. “I run the boat the way I've always run a boat. I just happened to have cameras that follow me around watching me while I do it.”

Of course, this wasn’t captain Lee’s first gig. “I'd been a captain for 25 years at that point,” he explains. “Like everybody else I started out with smaller boats 70- or 80-footers, then gradually you work your way up as you increase the scope of your license and eventually, I got into superyachts.” Over his career, he’s built up a hefty portfolio of yachts, including the 46 metre Burger flagship Sycara IV ( now Nadan ) and the 50 metre Cuor di Leone (now Barents ), which was chartered for season one under the pseudonym Honor .

While most reality TV series have scenes that are manufactured or re-shot in the name of entertainment, Below Deck is completely unscripted with cameras rolling 24/7. The yacht is rigged with cameras with up to 15 additional camera, light and sound crew on board at any one time – including the show’s producers who eavesdrop from one of the cabins on board. Bravo has to charter a second boat to accommodate them all. The team ends up filming some 45,000 hours of film which gets condensed into around 15 forty-minute episodes in post-production per season.

As a veteran captain, Captain Lee is no stranger to onboard drama. But the guests in front of a camera and it's a whole different ball game. “When the cameras start rolling, it’s like someone flips a switch,” says Captain Lee. Crazy guest requests are not uncommon in yachting; from sundeck foam parties to phallic cakes nothing is off limits. “It always seems to revolve around food, for some reason,” says Captain Lee. He recalls a time an owner demanded a particular suckling pig be flown into Baltimore from New Zealand for New Year’s Eve with just four days’ notice. “By the time you calculate the bills of lading and air freight, and of course we had to grease customs a little, it was probably a $10,000 pig.”

Despite the perks and pitfalls of fronting Below Deck , Captain Lee insists it’s a great opportunity for budding crew looking to take their first steps into the yachting industry.  “There are a lot of perks that go along with it,” he says. “The money is pretty good and almost all of it is disposable income.” It’s true – everything is paid for when you’re on board from your socks down to your toothbrush. “That's the best way to go boating I think,” he laughs, “on somebody else's boat.”

'Below Deck' 's Captain Lee Rosbach Closes Out 'Magical' Tenure on Bravo: 'It Feels Right'

After a decade on the Bravo series, Rosbach hung up his epaulettes on Monday's episode: "It's kind of a bittersweet moment. It's your last docking — you sure as hell don't want to f--- that up"

Lanford Beard is the former Senior TV Editor at PEOPLE. She worked at the brand from 2015 through 2024.

Below Deck is officially a man down after Captain Lee Rosbach said his final farewell to the Bravo hit after 10 "crazy" seasons.

Rosbach, 73, appeared in his final episode on the yachting show on Monday night. As another charter season wrapped up, the man affectionately known as the "Stud of the Sea" sprinkled in a few of his signature salty words of advice and reflected on the coda to his four-decade-long career in yachting.

"Being a captain and being out on the water, there's just something kind of magical out there," he said early in the episode. "It feels right, it's kind of like Christmas morning."

Season 10's final charter guests were body builders, which hit close to home for Rosbach, who hit the gym every day for weeks in order to return to the ship after he had to temporarily step away due to health concerns .

But, despite his admiration for the guest's commitment to physical fitness, he did draw a line when they asked the crew of motor yacht St. David to star in their own body building show.

Rosbach — a self-professed "gym rat" — was not about to take off his shirt for the guests. As he quipped in an interview: "There is only so much lipstick you can put on this pig."

The guests disembarked quickly since it was only a one-day charter, and with that Rosbach returned his ship to port one last time.

"When you're coming to the dock, it's kind of a bittersweet moment," he acknowledged. "It's your last docking — you sure as hell don't want to f--- that up."

After he bid adieu to his team members one by one, he mused aloud: "I really hate to say goodbye to any of this crew. I would stack them up against anyone, I really would."

Taking stock of his time on the sea, he offered up his trademark humor. "Going on 40 years I've been a yacht captain, have I seen a lot of crazy s---?" he asked, before adding a wry laugh: "Is a 40-pound robin fat? Yeah."

He continued over a montage of moments from the show that ranged from wacky to legitimately life-or-death : "Have I been in situations that I didn't think I was gonna make it through? Oh yeah."

But, he affirmed, "Deciding to become a yacht captain has been the best decision I have ever made in my life."

And of this season in particular, he said, " I made a promise that I would come back. That's a promise that I delivered. I want people to look at the job that I've done and go, 'He set the bar high, and he kept it high.' God d---, what a ride."

"I don't know what's gonna happen in the future, but the ocean's always gonna be part of me," he concluded. "I've still got the best god d--- job in the world."

Rosbach was forced to exit motor yacht St. David early into filming for season 10 , a reluctant decision he described to chef Rachel Hargrove as "one of the most humbling experiences of my life."

Below Deck Mediterranean 's Captain Sandy Yawn stepped in for much of the season, with Rosbach telling PEOPLE in December: " She really did me a solid. I'm grateful she was there."

"That's a very difficult situation that I put her in," he explained. "You're taking over somebody else's boat and somebody's else's crew. That's hard enough as it is — now add on top of it the fact that you're also filming a TV show and you've got me over here saying, 'By the way, I may or may not be back. It's open-ended, but I'll do my best!' I recognize how hard that is."

Below Deck debuted in July 2013, and its 10th season kicked off Nov. 21 with Rosbach and the St. David crew navigating the waters around the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia.

Kate Chastain — who developed a close personal bond with Rosbach while serving as his chief stew for several seasons — reflected on her mentor's time on Below Deck during a visit to Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in mid-December.

"You know, I think he had a great run," said Chastain, 40. "Ten years! It was his choice, for health reasons, and I think he's pleased with it."

‘Below Deck’ was just ‘a terrible idea.’ This salty captain turned it into reality TV gold

 A collage of folks from the show 'Below Deck'

At a sceney hotel in the Meatpacking District, Capt. Lee Rosbach glances disapprovingly at the waiter, who sports a severe undercut.

“How do people walk out of their house in the morning, look in the mirror and think, ‘This hair looks good’?” Rosbach says once the server has delivered his coffee and is out of earshot.

This brand of unvarnished honesty has endeared Rosbach, a.k.a. “The Stud of the Sea,” to fans of “Below Deck,” now in its 10th season. Like a real-life hybrid of “The Love Boat” and “Downton Abbey,” Bravo’s compulsively watchable reality show follows the hard-partying crew members and entitled guests aboard luxury yachts in stunning locations around the world — and has introduced millions of viewers to terms like “aft deck” and “bosun.”

As a gruff, heterosexual, 73-year-old white male who has never been implicated in financial crimes or launched a line of scented candles, Rosbach is not your typical Bravo-lebrity. He never wanted to be on TV in the first place.

“I’m just a blue-collar guy who does his job. I just happened to get filmed while I’m doing it,” says Rosbach, who is in town for BravoCon , a three-day gathering for fans of the network’s unscripted programming. But wearing a coral-pink zippered sweatshirt in a tropical print (and a large silver medallion) over his bare chest, he looks like he got lost on the way to Margaritaville.

‘This is our Super Bowl’: At BravoCon, a reality TV empire has its moment in the sun

Bravo built its brand on “Real Housewives” and other addictive reality soaps. With the inaugural BravoCon, it gave fans an event worthy of pilgrimage.

Nov. 18, 2019

“I don’t really do anything any different on my boat than I did 30 years ago,” he continues, “And if the camera doesn’t like it, well, that’s not my problem. But I guess people like it, because it’s still going after 10 years.”

Rosbach has been the sensible anchor on “Below Deck” since it premiered in 2013, outlasting dozens of lackluster deckhands, stewards and chefs along the way. Once an unlikely fit for Bravo, he now seems indispensable, much like “Below Deck” itself, which has become the network’s most valuable franchise since “The Real Housewives.” There are now four spinoffs, each with a different captain and a distinct flavor: “Below Deck Mediterranean,” “Below Deck Sailing Yacht,” “Below Deck Down Under” and “Below Deck Adventure,” which launched last month. Over the last year, four of the top 10 programs on Bravo were incarnations of “Below Deck,” which draw a larger male audience than is typical on the female-skewing network.

But in last week’s episode, Rosbach dropped a bombshell, telling the crew of the motoryacht St. David — sailing in St. Lucia this season — he was leaving the boat because of nerve issues impairing his mobility.

On social media, fans responded to the news of their beloved boat daddy’s departure with a torrent of tearful emojis. But the change is not necessarily permanent: Rosbach has repeatedly said he has no interest in retiring.

‘There was nobody with gray hair on Bravo’

When Bravo bought the idea for “Below Deck” about a decade ago, executive producer Courtland Cox remembers thinking, “Oh s—. Now I have to figure out how to make this show.”

As he and the team at 51 Minds, the company that produces four of the “Below Deck” shows, quickly learned, making a show set aboard a functioning yacht is a logistical, financial and legal nightmare.

Particularly in the early seasons, the learning curve was steep, and producers faced intense skepticism within the charter industry.

Rosbach, who gave Cox an informational tour of the boat he was helming at the time (and which appeared in Season 1 of the show) was one of those skeptics. “I could tell that he wanted nothing to do with us,” Cox recalls. “Like, ‘I’m doing this because the owner wants me to do it, but I can’t wait until you get off my boat.’”

Capt. Lee Rosbach and chief steward Kate Chastain on "Below Deck."

Originally, Rosbach was only supposed to play a behind-the-scenes role on “Below Deck,” by transporting the boat to St. Martin, where a younger, more Bravo-friendly but less experienced captain would step into the role for TV. When it became clear this arrangement wasn’t going to work, Rosbach was forced to take over. (In Rosbach’s telling, his wealthy boss gave him little choice: Either do his job on TV, or lose the job.)

Rosbach barely watched reality TV — and still doesn’t. He occasionally checked out “The Deadliest Catch” — “stuff that was actually real,” he says. But the glossy shows on Bravo about, as he puts it, “rich, spoiled, never-grown-up little girls trying to act like they put their big girl pants on”? “They didn’t interest me at all.”

“At the time, there was nobody with gray hair on Bravo. It was a very controversial thing,” Cox says. But when the show premiered, people immediately responded to Rosbach’s paternal presence, like a weary dad supervising a slumber party.

With his salty aphorisms (“I’m madder than a pissed-on chicken”; “I would rather drag my d— through 10 miles of broken whiskey bottles”), Rosbach is the tough-but-fair boss we all wish we had. After deckhand Ashton Pienaar was dragged off the boat in Season 6 — a potentially fatal scenario — Rosbach delivered a heartfelt safety lecture to his crew: “We need to really care about ourselves and our loved ones. ’Cause in the end, that’s all you got.”

Though Rosbach has yet to make it through a season without firing someone (often several people), “I have put up a concerted effort,” he says, laughing. And he’s pleased that “Below Deck” has introduced the industry to a wider audience of potential yachties — “especially people from the Midwest. We’re just raised differently.”

“What our fans have always loved about Bravo is the authenticity of our characters,” says Noah Samton, senior vice president of current production at NBCUniversal Television, who oversees “Below Deck” for Bravo. Someone like Teresa Giudice, the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star who served a year in prison for fraud, “may be as different from Capt. Lee as possible,” he says, “but they both are incapable of being anybody but themselves all the time.”

June 20, 2022

Unlike most of the 20-something crew members on “Below Deck,” Rosbach got a late start in the business. In the mid-1980s, Rosbach was running a restaurant in the Turks and Caicos Islands that went under. Unemployed, with a wife and kids to support, Rosbach spotted an ad at the dive shop for a mate to help deliver a boat to Tortola — no experience necessary. He took the job and, in between bouts of seasickness, discovered a calling.

“I’d never been on a g— boat,” he says. “I’d never even seen the ocean till I was 35.”

After moving back to the U.S. and earning his captain’s license, he worked his way up until he was running a superyacht. “If anybody tells you captains don’t make good money,” he says, “they’re lying to you.” (Salaries are based on the length of the boat.)

Kate Chastain was also a seasoned yachtie before she joined “Below Deck” in Season 2. By then, she’d already ascended to the role of chief steward — a.k.a. “chief stew,” like the housekeeper and butler rolled into one — but she was getting bored.

“‘Below Deck’ was a perfect way to take what I’d been doing and do it a new way,” says Chastain, wearing a pink gown and white sneakers as she relaxes in a windowless green room at BravoCon.

She ended up staying for six seasons, becoming a fan favorite for her ability to deliver both excellent service and wildly entertaining TV. (Known for her wicked one-liners, Chastain famously took revenge on a rude guest by folding his blanket into the shape of a penis, which she claimed was a rocket ship.) Still, she says, “I didn’t fully realize at first how it is two jobs — a TV job and a boat job. You have to learn which corners to cut to be able to do both jobs.” After a few seasons, Chastain told her stewards to stop vacuuming so much “because the cameras only shoot from here up,” she says, gesturing to her waist.

Cutting corners is one thing, but the stunt casting typical of other reality shows isn’t possible on “Below Deck” because the show takes place on a working yacht, Cox says: “You can’t put someone on a boat that can’t do the job. The lives of my production crew are literally in the hands of the kids on this boat who we are filming. If something goes wrong, they’re the ones that have to get us off safely.”

Besides, he adds, “If somebody is there for the wrong reasons. Lee’s gonna suss that out immediately.”

‘This show is a terrible idea’

On a network overrun with people who spend lavishly but work infrequently, much of the action of “Below Deck” is manual labor: The yachties spend hours folding laundry, inflating slides and preparing 10-course meals in kitchens not much larger than an airplane bathroom.

And its greatest source of suspense is how much the guests, who rotate every few episodes, will tip at the end of each charter. To watch crew members trash talk about their demanding, boorish customers in confessional interviews is not only cathartic, but novel: “Below Deck” is a rarity in TV, the show that sympathizes with working people over obnoxious one-percenters.

“The audience loves different things about ‘Below Deck’ than they like about other shows,” says Samton, the Bravo executive. “Our audience has this tremendous respect for workplace hierarchy. Who would have thought that would be something people were interested in watching on a reality show?”

Because of this built-in authenticity, “Below Deck” appeals to people who don’t necessarily watch much Bravo — or reality TV in general. John Fetterman, the hoodie-wearing Senator-elect from Pennsylvania, has praised the show for its bipartisan appeal. Filmmaker Steven Soderbergh told Rolling Stone he finds “Below Deck” completely gripping because “it’s a show about going to work.”

Fittingly, “Below Deck” also takes a lot of work to make, says Cox, who once knew nothing about yachting but now understands the intricacies of watercraft insurance and maritime law.

“Below Deck” films around the clock for about six weeks. Cameras installed around the boat capture whatever the film crew can’t. (When producers learned two Season 3 crew members were meeting for trysts in the laundry room because it didn’t have a camera, they added one.) Producers deal with three different boat crews: the on-camera yacht crew, the crew who provides catering in a separate vessel and the water taxis that shuttle the production crew, which doesn’t sleep on the boat, back and forth every day.

“This show is a terrible idea,” Cox says.

Maybe, but the “Below Deck” format has proved surprisingly durable. With five yachting shows in the current lineup and more than 300 episodes in the franchise so far, there could be more on the way, says Samton: “It’s an open question that we’re talking about all the time over here.”

The role that Rosbach will play going forward remains to be seen. In addition to his health challenges, the captain is also grieving his son, Josh, who died in 2019 of an opioid overdose.

“Some days are better than others. Other days I’m just a f— train wreck. I’ll be sitting at a stoplight, something will trigger it and I just come apart like a cheap suit,” says Rosbach, who carries some of his son’s ashes with him in the medallion around the neck. “I stopped playing music the day he died, and all my guitars sit in the corner getting dusty. He left such a hole, and that’s never gonna go away. The dumba— that said ‘Time heals all wounds,’ God, he was so full of s—.”

Still, Rosbach’s reluctance to retire fully from the rigors of yachting — and reality TV — points to why the franchise has made armchair nautical experts out of its legion of fans, buoyed Bravo through a time of transition for its “Real Housewives” juggernaut and silenced the naysayers who predicted “Below Deck” would kill his career.

“The phone rings and it’s a lot of people I haven’t heard from in 25 years,” he says. “It’s like, ‘How do you like me now?’”

Couch Talk Captain Lee

Lee Rosbach

Capt. Lee Rosbach has spent more than three decades circling the globe as a mega yacht captain. Born and raised in landlocked Saginaw, Mich., the onetime Wendy’s manager never even saw the ocean until moving to Turks & Caicos with his bride, Mary Anne, to run a restaurant in his mid-30s. In need of cash, he responded to an ad he saw seeking a mate for a delivery on a sailboat – no experience necessary. At 35, Lee obtained his captain’s license and left the restaurant business behind to pursue his newfound passion. Since then, the “Running Against the Tide” author has commanded more than a dozen super yachts. The “Stud of the Sea” is known for running his ship with a no-nonsense attitude and salty one-liners. Lee is excited to reunite with his former Chief Stew Kate Chastain – on dry land– as they catch up on Bravo’s latest shows.

Captain Lee Rosbach’s Wife Mary Anne is His Biggest Supporter

 of Captain Lee Rosbach’s Wife Mary Anne is His Biggest Supporter

Since the premiere of ‘ Below Deck ‘ in 2013, Captain Harold Lee Rosbach has been in charge of mega-luxurious yachts, namely ‘Honor,’ ‘Ohana,’ ‘Eros,’ ‘Valor,’ and ‘My Seanna.’ In season 10, he resumes the title of the Captain of the ship St. David, the largest motor yacht in the history of ‘Below Deck.’ Viewers of the show recall him as the only crew member who has constantly appeared since the show’s inaugural installment. Season 10 of Bravo TV’s reality show entrusted him once more with a bunch of newbies.  

Captain Harold Lee Rosbach put in a lot of effort for about three decades, and his excellent leadership skills won him the title “Stud of the Sea.” Fans have been curious about the veteran cast member’s personal life and the inspiration behind his impeccable work as he prepares to return to the Caribbean, where the waters are blue and the beaches are white. If you are eager to know who the lucky woman is in Captain Lee’s life, we’ve got you covered.

Lee Rosbach and Mary Anne’s Married Life: A Love Built on Friendship and Patience

Captain Lee Rosbach earned the title of “Stud of the Seas,” but for all the right reasons. He has always had his eyes on his one true love, his wife of nearly five decades, Mary Anne. In fact, she is the only crew member the Captain ever hooked up with in over 30 years of his career in the yachting industry. In an episode of ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,’ he revealed that he and Mary Anne hooked up when she was his Chief Stew! Viewers were introduced to Mary during season 5 when she visited ‘Valor,’ wherein she was spotted wearing a jacket with an old photo of the two.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Captain Lee Rosbach (@captain_lee_rosbach)

When his wife paid him a visit aboard the boat, the crew witnessed a side of the Captain they had never seen before. When Mary Anne was around him, he appeared happier than ever. Although Lee enjoys his position as the ship’s Captain, he secretly longs for his wife to be at his side. Mary Anne is always there to welcome Lee back to his Florida home, no matter how long he spends at sea. The pair opened up about their dreamy relationship over dinner in one of the episodes of ‘Below Deck’ wherein they expressed how they went from “best friends” to “lovers.”

The cast and crew witnessed the two talk about their relationship and how they met like giddy young sweethearts. “My girlfriends all knew him. We all went out one night, and I met Lee, and he doesn’t even remember meeting me,” Mary Anne said as she laughed. “I made such a good impression.” Captain Lee quipped, “ How can you hold me responsible for something I don’t remember? That’s not fair.” Mary Anne further expressed that romantic sparks flew between them in their subsequent encounter.

Mary Anne said, “And then we met again about maybe a month later, and then he loved me,” to which Captain Lee added, “After the second time, that was it.” He confessed that Mary Anne is his best friend in the whole wide world. He divulged, “After putting up with me and five kids, she has the patience of a saint. I happen to be one of those guys that got to marry their best friend.” 

The couple has been blissfully married for nearly five decades. Captain Lee also shared his wisdom about keeping one’s love evergreen. He said, “For a relationship to last a long time, you have to work at it.” Rosbach admitted that his primary aim is to keep Mary Anne happy. “If she’s got a smile on her face, my day is complete,” he said. Captain Lee also shared his tip for a successful Valentine’s Day.

On Cameo, he cautioned fans not to make the mistake of purchasing only one gift to cover both dates in case they were unlucky enough to have a spouse whose birthday fell on February 14. Lee said , “Another no-no on Valentine’s Day if you happen to be one of the unfortunate souls like myself whose wife’s birthday happens to be on Valentine’s Day, do not think for a minute that one present is going to work for both days.”

You may anticipate that a life at sea would cause some strain in a marriage, but Captain Lee said on  WWHL in 2017 that their love has become stronger due to his frequent trips from his wife. “Actually, I think that is one of the keys to our relationship being successful is the fact that we spend extended periods away from each other,” he said. “And the old adage ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’ is true.” Mary Anne has made it evident that she believes in Lee’s ability to achieve success in the yachting sector. They are deeply in love, confirming that these two will always be our favorite yachting pair.

Captain Lee Rosbach and Mary Anne’s Family and Kids

Lee Rosbach and Mary Anne have four sons, one daughter and one granddaughter who recently graduated from college. In conversation with The Daily Dish , it was revealed that the kids have no interest in watching Captain Lee on ‘Below Deck.’ He recounted, “Two of my sons have been involved in yachting. And Mary Anne, my wife, actually asked one of them, and she said, ‘Did you watch Dad’s show tonight on TV?’ And he went, ‘No.’ And she goes, ‘Why not?’ He says, ‘Mom, we all worked for Dad, we know who he is, and it’s like watching home movies, and we’re not in them.'”

Unfortunately, they have also been through some terrible times. The most tragic of everything the parents faced together was losing their son, Joshua, to an accidental drug overdose in 2019. On Instagram, the heartbroken father shared how his 42-year-old son passed away after fighting his addiction for over two decades. “Whether you live in a 10,000 sq ft mansion or a double wide trailer, the path of death, destruction and devastation it leaves remains the same. We loved Josh unconditionally and were proud of the man he had become in spite of his problems,” the grieving father wrote. 

Lee added, “There was no one i ever knew who gave more of himself to those in his life. He loved with all his being without expecting anything in return. We both feel a hole in our souls that will never be filled. Additionally, Captain Lee and Mary Anne have decided to pay a very personal tribute to Josh.” To prevent other families from experiencing the same loss as the Rosbachs, the couple established a special scholarship in Josh’s honor at the Awaken Recovery Center in Greenacres, Florida, which helps addicts to receive free in-house treatment. We wish the pair heartfelt happiness in their journey together.

Below Deck’s Captain Lee Rosbach Returns Before The End Of Season 10; Says “I Wanted To Be Able To Finish What I Started”

  • Oops! Something went wrong. Please try again later. More content below

The incredibly dedicated and determined Captain Lee Rosbach struggled with his decision to depart Below Deck Season 10. Of course it was the right call. Lee struggled physically after losing feeling in the left side of his body. Nerve damage in his leg left him unable to captain a yacht properly.

That didn’t make it any easier for Captain Lee  to leave though. And before he even finished his good-bye speech to the crew of motor yacht St. David, Captain Lee promised to return before the end of the charter season.

And by golly, he did it,  People confirmed . “I made a promise to the crew before I left that I would be back before they were done, before the season was over, and I would walk on board by myself unassisted,” Captain Lee  stated. “I’m happy to say that I was able to fulfill the promise.”

He added, “That was a very proud moment for me. I wanted to be able to finish what I started.”

Our Stud of the Sea was seen by doctors and physical therapists during his time on land to deal with deteriorating nerve issues. Though his medical team confirmed that the surgeries he had on his back and neck went “extremely well,” Captain Lee  struggled with balance and basic motor skills while still on board. “My mind’s there, my heart’s there, my body just won’t cooperate,” Captain Lee told his crew before leaving the boat. “I’ve never quit, and this time, I have to.”

Referring to his policy of issuing one-way tickets home , Captain Lee joked, “I finally gave myself a plane ticket home, but it’s round trip. I’m going to go back to the States, get this straightened out and as soon as I do I’ll be on the first plane back here and tell whoever’s on board to get the f– off my boat.”

Well, that someone was none other than  Captain Sandy Yawn  from  Below Deck Mediterranean . Her appearance on-screen was met with mixed reactions from viewers. Thankfully, disappointed fans can rest assured that Lee Rosbach will be back in full form by the season finale.

Despite making a triumphant return, Captain Lee seems unable to come to terms with leaving in the first place. “That’s something I’ve never done in my life, I’ve never quit,” he told People . “I’ve never had to say I quit. And it was really, really hard to admit, especially to myself, that there’s something out there that kicked my ass. That was a hard pill to swallow,” Lee added.

Sympathetic reaction from his crew made the departure bittersweet. Chief stew Fraser Olender and chef Rachel Hargrove were in tears by the end of Captain Lee’s speech. “I was very touched by that. It was palpable. You could taste it,” he recalled. “It was in the air and it was just raw emotion on both sides of that fence. I was close to tears because it just means that much to me. And to be able to instill that in other people, that same sort of caring and see it take place, it’s like, ‘Yeah, I’ve done good.’ To have to walk away from that was just harsh.”

Captain Lee then provided insight into his recovery process. His regime included a massage therapist, clinician, and extensive physical therapy, sometimes up to six days a week. “If they were open, I was there,” Captain Lee told People.

The process worked, but not at the pace Captain Lee was hoping for. He said, “There were times when I would get discouraged. I’m like everybody else, I guess. We’re so used to instant gratification. We want to see progress immediately. And with nerve damage, it just doesn’t happen that way. So I’d get frustrated. Other people would see a difference in my progress but it wouldn’t seem like anything to me because I wanted to see leaps and bounds instead of baby steps. But we got there,” he added.

“Right now everything’s in a good place” and Captain Lee is feeling “great.” He quipped, “It was a bit of a rough patch there. I felt like Chester in Gunsmoke! ”

Captain Lee credits wife Mary Anne Rosbach for her role in the recovery process. Ever present by his side, Mary Anne gave “tremendous support” to her loving husband.

Fans and followers flooded Captain Lee’s social media with words of support. “The outpouring of sympathy was just overwhelming. I thought I died!” he said.

“I don’t consider myself a celebrity or a reality TV star. I’m just a captain that does this job, happens to get filmed while I’m doing it,” Captain Lee concluded. “And then when something like that happens and you see the reaction to the fans, you realize the responsibility you have and how many people’s lives you actually touch in a great way. So it’s humbling to say the least.”

20 Best Reality TV Shows Right Now

Sister wives: is robyn selfish or does she really care about meri, janelle & christine, little people, big world: how matt roloff's rubbing his happiness in amy's face.

  • Below Deck franchise continues to dominate TV screens in 2024 with new seasons, spin-offs, and drama-filled adventures for fans.
  • Expect delays in the airing schedule for Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 5 due to misconduct allegations against crew member Gary King.
  • Below Deck Mediterranean season 9 is set to premiere on June 3, offering viewers thrilling drama, eccentric guests, and new challenges.

The multiple shows in the Below Deck franchise will air in the 2024 TV airing cycle; however, the schedule has changed from what fans became accustomed to in recent years. When the Original (OG) Below Deck show premiered in 2013, the reality series quickly became one of the best shows of the year. Below Deck 's unique premise of detailing the lives of crew members on a yacht during a charter season drew in an impressive 1.4 million viewers per episode.

Unsurprisingly, Below Deck quickly spurned multiple spin-offs, including Below Deck Mediterranean , Below Deck Sailing Yacht , Below Deck Down Under , and Below Deck Adventure , most of which became equally successful as the OG show. The 2024 TV airing cycle for shows in the franchise kicked off with the Below Deck season 11 premiere on February 5, 2024. Still, fans wouldn't have to wait that long as another show is lined up to premiere just weeks after the finale.

Reality TV is more popular than ever. With so many to choose from, here are some of the best reality TV shows to stream or watch right now.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5 Is Delayed

The new bdsy season won’t air for a while..

After months of anticipation, Below Deck Sailing Yacht fans will have to wait a bit longer for season 5 to premiere, with emerging reports that Below Deck Mediterranean season 9 will take its spot in the 2024 TV airing schedule. Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 5 was expected to air after the OG Below Deck season 11 runs its course come June, but that has changed. According to reports, the new Below Deck Sailing Yacht season may have been delayed due to crew member Gary King, who was accused of misconduct during Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 4.

A makeup artist who also worked on the show, Samantha Suarez, accused Gary of making inappropriate moves on her in a hotel room. Although Gary came out to deny the allegations, producers may edit Gary out of the new season or cancel it altogether. While the Below Deck Sailing Yacht crew has been dropping hints about filming another season in the past couple of months, in addition to some on-set leaked pictures, there have been no reports of an official casting or an airing date for Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 5.

Below Deck Mediterranean Season 9 Is Next

Fans will be getting a lot of below deck med.

Below Deck Mediterranean will return to the screens for its ninth season on June 3 , just five months after the season 8 finale. Since its debut, Below Deck Med has brought in substantial viewership numbers and the ratings for season 8 were also impressive. Below Deck Med season 8 featured all the traits that have made the show a favorite in recent years, with love triangles, an early exit, and fiery crew drama. Still, Captain Sandy Yawn will once again return to the helm of the yacht Mystique as she and her crew cruise through Athens, Greece.

Aesha Scott will return to Below Deck Med Season 9 as Chief Stew after her previous stint on the show as Second Stew during Season 4. Elena Dubaich will also return to the show as a stew after filling in for former crew member Kyle Viljoen during Below Deck Med season 7. According to the preview, Below Deck Med season 9 is set to be another dramatic season featuring strange guests and never-before medical and mechanical issues.

When Will Below Deck Down Under Season 3 Air?

Below deck down under’s return date is still unknown.

Since its debut, Below Deck Down Under has become a fan favorite, and after the dramatic events of season 2, the show has been renewed for a third season (via Premiere Date ). However, despite its renewal announcement, the premiere date of the new season has not been announced yet . The last two seasons of the show premiered during the Winter TV schedule, but that changed in 2024. Under the direction of Captain Jason Chambers, Below Deck Down Under crew members have been praised for positively portraying their personal lives and challenges faced during a charter season.

However, that almost changed during season 2 when bosun Luke Jones climbed into the third stew Margot Sisson's bed absolutely naked. Second stew Laura Bileskalne also entered deckhand Adam Kodra's room despite his protest, climbed into his bed without consent, and attempted to give him a massage before producers kicked her out. Luke and Laura were immediately fired by Captain Jason , who later revealed NBC and Bravo would put some new guidelines in place to prevent similar events from occurring (via Yahoo! ).

When Will Below Deck Season 12 Premiere?

New season of below deck is already in production.

The OG Below Deck returned to the screens for a historic eleventh season on February 5, 2024. With Captain Kerry Titheradge taking over at the helm after Captain Lee Rosbach's exit, the show has been delivering on its promise of another drama-filled adventure with just two episodes left before its May 20 finale. Nonetheless, Below Deck seems to have been renewed for its twelfth season after fans spotted Captain Kerry piloting the St. David on Simpson Bay Bridge in Sint Maarten.

Alongside Captain Kerry, who waved at photographers, fans also spotted Sunny Marquis, which indicated the filming of Below Deck season 12 was truly underway . Still, there haven't been any official announcements about when Below Deck season 12 will premiere, but the debut will definitely take some time, considering the crew is currently filming. However, with several Below Deck spin-offs lined up to premiere during the coming months, fans might have to wait till early 2025 before the OG show returns to the screens.

What Happened To Below Deck Adventure?

Below deck adventure might be getting the axe.

Below Deck Adventure premiered in 2022, promising to be another standout spin-off; however, the show failed to meet the high expectations both fans and the producers had set for it. For one, the show's cast hugely underperformed, with deckhand Kyle Dickard being fired after just three episodes. Meanwhile, Chief Stew Faye was criticized for being too bossy , and fans found Chef Jessica Condy's drama with crew mates unnecessary. Due to how unimpressive the first couple of episodes were, ratings for Below Deck Adventure plummeted and didn't recover for the rest of the season.

Since the season 1 finale, no new information has been released about Below Deck Adventure, and there are signs the show might not be getting another season.

Since the season 1 finale, no new information has been released about Below Deck Adventure , and there are signs the show might not be getting another season. Captain Kerry Titheradge, one of the standouts of the debut season, has been moved on to the OG Below Deck show. While other shows in the franchise have aired at least once, there has been no space for Below Deck Adventure in the yearly TV schedule , and it looks like it might be the first show in the franchise to be canceled.

Below Deck airs Monday at 9 p.m. EDT on Bravo, then streams the following day on Peacock.

What’s on TV This Week: Met Gala and ‘Wedding Crashers’

E! covers all the looks of the first Monday in May. And Paramount airs the classic buddy movie.

By Shivani Gonzalez

For those who still haven’t cut the cord, here is a selection of cable and network TV shows, movies and specials that broadcast this week, May 6-12. Details and times are subject to change.

MET GALA: LIVE FROM THE RED CARPET 6 p.m. on E ! Some people celebrate the Super Bowl, some celebrate Derby Day. And others celebrate the Met Gala, the benefit ball for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute on the first Monday in May. This year, the exhibition is “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” and the dress code is “The Garden of Time.” Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Hemsworth and Bad Bunny are hosts of the event, alongside, of course, Anna Wintour. Live coverage from E! will feature the host Ross Mathews interviewing attendees on the red carpet and at the Mark Hotel and the Pierre Hotel beforehand.

OMG FASHUN 9 p.m. on E! Julia Fox is following up her memoir “Down the Drain,” from last year, with this sustainable fashion competition show. Teaming up with Law Roach , the mastermind stylist behind Zendaya’s incredible press looks for “Challengers,” each episode features three designers creating outfits with Fox as their muse.

WEDDING CRASHERS (2005) 10:30 p.m. on Paramount. Rom-coms are making a come back this year (see: “Anyone But You” ), and I hope buddy comedies are next. Take this classic starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn as divorce mediators who crash weddings to drink for free and meet women. “A wink-wink, nudge-nudge Trojan horse of a story, the film pivots on two cut-rate Lotharios persuasively inhabited by Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, who love the ladies, but really and truly, cross their cheating hearts, just want a nice girl to call wife,” Manohla Dargis wrote in her review for The New York Times .

BRANDY HELLVILLE & THE CULT OF FAST FASHION 8 p.m. on HBO. If you were a girl growing up in the 2000s and 2010s, you probably had a piece of Brandy Melville clothing in your closet. The brand was marketed as “one size fits all,” but that one size was … tiny. This documentary dives deeper into the company’s work environment and discriminatory practices as well as sustainability concerns over cheaply made clothing.

THERESA CAPUTO: RAISING SPIRITS 9 p.m. on Lifetime. Whether or not you believe someone can be a psychic medium, as Theresa Caputo asserts she is, there is something appealing about watching her help people feel connected to family or friends who have died.

REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE 8 p.m. on TCM. Another film genre we need more of: moody teen comes to well-to-do town and shakes things up. And that is what we have with this movie: James Dean plays Jim Stark, who moves to a nice neighborhood in Los Angeles, hangs out with the offbeat kid (Sal Mineo) and falls for Judy (Natalie Wood), who is of course dating Buzz (Corey Allen), the toughest guy at school. “Convincing or not in motivations, this tale of tempestuous kids and their weird ways of conducting their social relations is tense with explosive incidents,” Bosley Crowther wrote in his review for The Times.

BELOW DECK MARATHON starting at 7 p.m. on Bravo. We are currently in the “Below Deck” era of Captain Kerry Titheradge, with Fraser Olender as the chief steward, but before them, Kate Chastain was the mainstay. This marathon begins with Season 2 when Chastain, as chief stew, and Captain Lee Rosbach were one of Bravo’s most dynamic duos. Come for the crew drama and annoying guests, stay for the daydreams of sailing on a charter yacht.

ABBA: AGAINST THE ODDS 8 p.m. on the CW. Mamma Mia, am I excited for this documentary about the Swedish pop group ABBA. Released for the 50th anniversary of their album “Waterloo,” the film starts with their win at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 and includes archival footage and new interviews with the band as they discuss some of their biggest hits.

TIME 100: THE WORLD’S MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE 10 p.m. on ABC. What do Dua Lipa, Dev Patel, Mark Cuban, Patrick Mahomes and Tory Burch have in common? They are all on Time magazine’s most influential people list of 2024. This broadcast of the gala honoring the recipients, which took place last month in New York City, features performances by Lipa and Fantasia Barrino, as well as appearances by Maya Rudolph, Kelley Robinson and 21 Savage. Taraji P. Henson is the host, and Michael J. Fox receives the annual Time Impact Award.
