below deck   season 7

Working on mega-yachts in exotic locales seems like a walk in the park. But once you add the preferences of super demanding clients, unexpected weather changes, and the tension of a camera crew following you around 24/7, you have a professional nightmare. That’s what you get with Below Deck, one of Bravo’s most popular franchises to come from the network in the past decade. With cramped bunks and raging hormones, naturally, Below Deck couples are a dime a dozen. While romances can bloom instantly, it can also lead to some pretty messy relationships, drama, disagreements, hence the massive success of the show.

Men’s Health dove into social media accounts and blogs of yacht crew members of three versions of the show, Below Deck, Below Deck Mediterranean, and Below Deck: Sailing Yacht, to find out the status of our couples’ relationships. Be prepared for some heartaches, steamy makeout sessions, and bizarre reasons as to why some of the most-talked about Below Deck relationships came to a swift end. Where are the Below Deck couples now?

Bobby and Julia (Below Deck Mediterranean)

Kind-hearted Bobby and girl-next-door Julia would’ve been the picture-perfect couple on the first season of Med… if Julia didn’t already have a boyfriend waiting for her back home in England. While their relationship never came to fruition, they make the list for Bobby’s insistence on flirting with her despite the circumstances. Know your time and place, Bobby!

As for their whereabouts now, Julia’s now married to her then-boyfriend, Matty. (She’s also the founder of a clothing line and still friends with Hannah Ferrier, her chief stew!) Bobby appeared on one more season of the show before and remains a full-time yachtie.

Aesha and Jack (Below Deck Mediterranean)

Jack and Aesha were the couple viewers all hoped would stick it out past the fourth season of Med. While they were nearly perfect for each other on camera (he accepted her bluntness as much as she loved his amateur romantic gestures), it sadly wasn’t meant to be. The worst part about their breakup? Aesha found out he was back together with his ex through a DM on Instagram.

In April, Jack became a dad (and has stayed off social media since his time on the show). Aesha is now appearing on the current season of Below Deck Med.

Ben and Emily (Below Deck)

During the show’s fourth season, bosun Kelley passionately pursued second stew Emily. Fan favorite and chef Ben swooped in and captured her heart. They might’ve made an unlikely pair, but the two stayed together for a while after their season ended—a major milestone for the franchise!

Ben last appeared in season four of Below Deck and now owns a catering company. He’s also in a relationship with someone that isn’t Emily. Emily is single, and coincidentally, also operates a catering company in London.

Malia and Wes (Below Deck Mediterranean)

What started as a romance on-shore between deckhand Malia and chef Adam prior to Med‘s season two quickly turned into a love triangle when bosun Wes fell hard for Malia as well. Wes eventually won her heart and the two remained dating for a time after the show.

Of course, if you’re watching the current season of Below Deck Med, then you know things didn’t work out. The two broke up before the season’s reunion episode. Malia is in a relationship with another BDM crew member, Tom Checketts, while Wes is keeping a low-profile on social media and remains a yachtie.

Courtney and Brian (Below Deck)

I’m not sure what made this relationship so messy—the fact Brian kept calling Courtney “dramatic” or how he dumped her over a text message in the middle of their work day. Viewers could easily see the instant connection between the two, but at the end of the day, Brian clearly didn’t respect Courtney’s ambition.

Shouldn’t come as a surprise that the two didn’t stay together, which viewers witnessed during the reunion. Brian’s still working on yachts, while Courtney remains a fan of the show and live-tweets some of the recent episodes.

Joao and Brooke (Below Deck Mediterranean)

Oh, look—a triangle for our favorite franchise! Joao, acting ever-so like the casanova, had Casey and Brooke in his hands throughout most of Med‘s third season. Although he and Brooke eventually found love, they also went through a cheating scandal which left him heartbroken. (Joao claims Brooke cheated, Brooke claims they weren’t together. It’s a mess.)

Joao’s now engaged and Brooke’s also still working on yachts as a chief stew.

Simone and Tanner (Below Deck)

How many ways can you call someone a jerk? Although the duo’s relationship on the main show’s seventh season was brief, it was pretty messed up from the start. With Tanner having no issues talking about their sex life, it was obvious they weren’t going to last. But it sure was fun watching it all blow up.

Simone’s still working on yachts and Tanner appears to be back on Long Island and dating someone new.

Hannah and Charter Guest (Below Deck Mediterranean)

We get it—Hannah was searching for love and someone was giving her the time of day while stuck on a luxury mega yacht. But when the suitor was none other than a charter guest, that’s when it got sticky. After exchanging a kiss on shift, she tried to keep up with her new beau without anyone else knowing about it. Sadly, she didn’t think about which device she chatted with him on, and all her crew mates found out. Well, at least she learned her lesson.

No surprises, it didn’t last long. The two remained in contact post-show, but never managed to make it work.

Hannah & Conrad (Below Deck Mediterranean)

What exactly happens when the young good-looking bosun hooks up with the older chief stew? A lot of arguing. While it looked like Conrad and Hannah did form somewhat of a true connection on Med‘s third season, it was clear Hannah needed a man, not a boy who made her pay him back 50 quid for a box of ciggies.

Hannah’s in a relationship now, and expecting her first child this year. Conrad left the yachting industry, and is a founder of a fitness app.

Rocky & Eddie (Below Deck)

It’s the season 3 relationship that rocked the franchise boat and the messiest one of all. From the secret rounds of sex in the laundry room (which prompted Bravo to install cameras in there) to Eddie vehemently denying to the cast and crew he ever cheated on his then-girlfriend and slept with Rocky, it was the hookup no Below Deck fan could forget so easily.

Eddie’s now working on tug boats! Rocky’s keep pretty quiet since her time on the show, though she appeared on a recent series reunion episode where she mended fences with Eddie (and got into several arguments with Kate, her former chief stew and archrival).
