Below deck bravo

'Below Deck' premieres Monday on Bravo at 10PM ET/PT


There’s drama on the high seas in Bravo's latest reality series Below Deck. This exciting new show follows seven young crew members aboard Honor, a 164-foot mega-yacht. 
Drama is inevitable as these “yachties” live and work together in close quarters. They try their best to deal with incredibly demanding passengers, but also with each other. In between the conflicts and the cat fights, friendships are made and romantic sparks soar.
Cast members C.J. Lebeau and Sam Orme open up to Life & Style about their experiences at sea — and leave us wondering: are they or aren’t they an item?
C.J., who shared a room with Sam on the Honor, says the “relationships I built” were the best part about working on the boat. 
“I had a great time rooming with Sam. She was fun to room with,” C.J. gushes. “We get along very well. She’s definitely a good-looking girl. Rooming with Sam, it was hard to keep my eyes off of her.”
And Sam sure agrees they made great roommates!
“It was good rooming with CJ,” the brunette beauty says. “I’ve lived with guys all my life so I’ve seen the good and the bad side of that, so he made a great roommate.”
The 25-year-old Florida-native also revealed that she knew C.J. was into her from the very start.
“I knew that CJ had a crush on me,” she says. “He is very open and very upfront and he told me that right off the bat. He made it known to me from the get-go that he liked me.”
When asked if she was into C.J.’s flirtations, she kept coy and simply said, “Absolutely. What girl doesn’t like attention?”
To see if things might heat up between Sam and C.J., be sure to tune into Below Deck, debuting Monday on Bravo at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
