How to Watch Below Deck Online

On season 6 of Below Deck, the cast and crew take on Tahiti as their primary destination, but it isn’t all about paradise. An accident on board this season, leaves a stoic Captian Lee Rosbach nearly in tears during a confessional with the cameras, concerning the incident. In previews of the episode, a crew member is shown being pulled backward and screaming, off the boat and overboard.

The person who gets pulled overboard is deckhand Ashton Pienaar. He gets pulled in, attached to the tow line and nearly drowns.

In a video clip, it looks like tow line rope snags Pienaar and pulls him off the ship. Fellow deckhand Rhylee Gerber then goes on her walkie to say, “Man overboard.” According to Bravo TV, Captain Lee wrote on Twitter that, though he considers this the best season to date, it was also almost his personal worst. He seems to be referring to the deadly close-call. The Captain also wrote that the accident, “Shook me to my core. That’s something that doesn’t happen easily … Very frightening to say the very least.”

The victim in the incident, Pienaar, has made for some eye candy this season. And, he reportedly engages in some romance with fellow deckhand and wildcard Rhylee. When weighing in on Rhylee in his Bravo blog, Captain Lee had some sympathy, but very little, since she’s had a lot of attitude with her fellow cast members. Captain Lee wrote, “Speaking of Rhylee, have you ever had anyone ask you how you are without responding with a negative answer? C’mon, it’s a great world out there and don’t make it bad because you signed up for something that you regret now. Made your bed and now you have to sleep in it.”
