Bravo is taking us back to the high seas for a new season of Below Deck Mediterranean, which sets sail on Tuesday, May 15, at 9 p.m. ET. You won't recognize most of the Below Deck Mediterranean Season 3 cast, though — six of 'em are newbies!
Sure, Captain Sandy Yawn is back — helming the 178-foot Talisman Maiton, the reality show's largest yacht to date — and chief stew Hannah Ferrier and chef Adam Glick are returning, too. But as Captain Sandy takes the luxurious motorboat around Italy, we'll get to know her six new staff members: three deckhands, two stewards, and a bosun. We do, however, have some early intel on these new yachties…
A Bravo press release reveals this second stew was born with a silver spoon in her mouth, thanks to her "upscale upbringing" in Manchester, England. In fact, she even had to learn how to do laundry when she entered the service industry. Brooke's parents broke up a few years ago, but she remains a "hopeless romantic" who might even be down for a "boatmance."
The daughter of a New Yorker father and a Colombian mother, this third stew has a "natural balance" and a "worldly view," Bravo says, plus charisma and confidence in spades. In prior lives, Kasey was a pageant contestant, a straight-A student, and a psychology major. Like Brooke, she was raised in privilege, but she is determined to succeed in this white-glove gig.
This "baby-faced bosun" also hails from the United Kingdom, just like Brooke. He took his first yachting job when he was 18, following his mother into the industry. Bravo says Conrad has a "mischievous grin" and a "jovial nature." He also has no filter, which often gets him into trouble but also charms his high-end clientele.
After living amid political unrest in Zimbabwe for his first 20 years, this lead deckhand left home and talked his way into a job on a yacht. His "independent spirit" may put him at odds with his bosses, but it also inspires his clientele. After finding success in his career, João's next challenge is finding a success in his love life, since he admittedly "wins the hearts of many and disappoints quite a few."
Music is Colin's passion, but boats are his life. While growing up on the south shore of Long Island, NY, he started work as a deckhand at age 15 and eventually became a captain of ferries to and from Fire Island. Bravo says he's "a quintessential momma's boy" who gets homesick for his friends and family. Perhaps he'll find love, though — he's single, after all, and boasts an "infectious" personality.
With a "wicked sense of humor" and a "sharp tongue," this deckhand and self-proclaimed "class clown" keeps her friends laughing and her foes withering. Born in South Africa, Jamie lived in California for two years before moving to the French resort town Antibes and starting her yachting career. In her last job, she was the sole stew and deckhand on a 79-foot yacht… so she probably enjoys having helping hands on the Talisman Maiton. Anchors aweigh!
