From Captain Sandy to Joao Franco, ‘Below Deck’ Stars Who Appeared Across the Franchise


Over the years, the Below Deck brand has shocked audiences by having recognizable personalities appear on various episodes.

The pioneering reality program, which first aired in 2013, examines the life of the crew members who live and work aboard a superyacht throughout the charter season. Bravo swiftly produced many spinoffs of Below Deck as a result of the success of the original series, including Below Deck Mediterranean, Below Deck Sailing Yacht, Below Deck Down Under, and Below Deck Adventure.

Ben Robinson, a chef in the first four seasons of Below Deck, appeared in the debut of Below Deck Mediterranean, which helped introduce viewers to the first spinoff. Before participating in Below Deck Sailing Yacht, Adam Glick appeared in two seasons of Below Deck Med as a noteworthy cast member.

When Med’s Captain Sandy replaced OG Captain Lee in 2022 due to a health issue, the series experienced a first for Below Deck. The founding captain of the franchise, Captain Lee, subsequently came back to complete season 10.
