Season 10 of Below Deck is slated to launch on Bravo in less than a week. Following the disappointing season 9, people are hoping that the next series would be more enjoyable. Along with the acclaimed returning cast members, the soon-to-be-released series will expose audiences to new recruits. Ben Willoughby is one of them. Ben Willhoughby will work as a deckhand on the luxury boat. Ben is 27 years old and from Australia’s Gold Coast. The teaser for the next season also suggests the possibility of some steam between Ben and his partner Camille.
The official summary of the program is as follows:
“Below Deck returns to the Caribbean for its tenth season, captained by sea stud Captain Lee. The crystal-clear seas and strikingly tapered mountains, the Pitons, on the lush island of St. Lucia, are likely to please even the most discriminating visitor.”
The summary goes on to say:
“Aboard the St. David, the biggest motor yacht in Below Deck history, the crew is pleased by the sumptuous, gigantic 197-foot vessel, but they rapidly realize that with a larger boat comes more issues.”
With the series’ Bravo debut approaching, here’s all you need to know about the new deckhand, Ben Willoughby.
Ben Willoughby of Below Deck is an adrenaline junkie who joined a big yacht crew in France.
Ben describes himself as an “ocean kid at heart” in his Bravo profile. His boyhood friend’s “yachtie lifestyle” influenced him. His biography also stated:
“Ben first set sail on the high seas in 2020, when he joined the crew of a mega yacht in France. Ben has spent the last three years working as a deckhand and personal trainer aboard yachts, combining his passion for fitness with his love of the ocean.”
To that, add:
“Ben, a gregarious person who feels that “a Pina Colada is always a smart option,” is ready to get the party on board. This daring Aussie is determined to stand out on the St. David’s deck.”
Ben has also received personal instruction while aboard other ships. The Instagram feed of the Below Deck actor offers images about his travel adventures, fitness quests, tattoos, and lavish lifestyle. Some of his postings also include photos of the deckhand and his pals.
Earlier this year, in October, Ben posted a headshot of himself from his Bravo profile with the caption:
“• witty • charismatic • Australian “All Hands on Deck” Okay, you salty sea dogs. I can’t keep my mouth shut any longer since the truth is officially out: I’m a Season 10 cast member with @belowdeckbravo. The business needs significant reform, and I’m leading the effort. But first, keep an eye on the walkie for the latest Below Deck drama. You can find me in the thick of the action on @bravotv during Below Deck Season 10. I’ll meet you on deck, salty sailors.”
