I have received dribs and drabs of Below Deck spoilers over the last couple of week. In two weeks, filming begins and it looks like season seven will be set in Thailand. Below Deck was very successful in Tahiti and Bravo made a lot more money than they made in the Caribbean so it appears they are going to film in Thailand from mid-February through the end of March.
Captain Lee and Kate are for sure coming back of course. It appears that Adrian is not. I have heard that Ben Robinson is returning as the chef. I’m not thrilled with this news because my sources that know him do not think he is a decent person, to put it mildly. But that seems to be what is happening.
Ross has legal issues so it’s not clear if he will be able to go to Thailand. Josiah has been in the states the past week or two but is headed by to England or wherever home is for him, but I can’t see them not bringing him back next season. Ashton seems like he is coming back as he recently mentioned planning for his next adventure. Tyler seemed to be over it at the end of season six but he seems to be relishing in his fifteen minutes of fame and may be ready to extend it. So it could be that Ashton and Laura come back as a thing and Tyler and Rhylee come back as a thing.
So it looks possible to me that everyone except for Adrian may be returning with Ross’s return dependent on his legal issues.
In other news, the price of the cruises has REALLY gone up since the first season, which makes sense because the boats are better, I’ve been told the cost of the Tahiti cruises started at €180,000 plus tip! That seems insane to me.
Are you excited for a season in Thailand? I can’t wait! We can expect Below Deck to return in the late summer or early fall of 2019.
