Below Deck Mediterranean just wrapped up its most recent season, making way for a brand new season of the original Below Deck. Season 7 kicks off tonight, on October 7, 2019, at 9 p.m. ET/PT and 8 p.m. CT and some of the fan favorites from the series have returned. Captain Lee Robach takes the crew to Thailand and this season is supposed to be hotter than ever, especially since the spicy Kate Chastain has returned as Chief Stewardess. Ashton Pienaar is also back on the show. For those who would like to watch the show but do not have a cable subscription or don’t have the Bravo channel as part of their cable package, there are still options for watching the show online.
If you don’t have cable, you can watch a live stream of Bravo on your computer, phone, Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV or other streaming device via one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming subscription services:

“BELOW DECK” SEASON 7 EPISODE 1: The premiere episode is titled “Man Down!” and the plot description of the episode reads, “Capt. Lee, Kate and Ashton are joined by six new crew members aboard M/Y Valor, as they explore the waters of Thailand; as first-time bosun, Ashton struggles with managing a crew of his own; Kevin stresses out while preparing a high-stakes dinner.”
“BELOW DECK” SEASON 7 EPISODE 2: Episode 2 this season is called “The Proposal” and it is set to air on October 14, 2019. The description of episode 2 states, “The crew pulls off a once-in-a-lifetime dinner, but Kevin is left with doubts about Kate’s standard of service; Courtney is not impressed with her fellow crew members’ behavior; Brian makes a mistake; Ashton crosses a line with a junior crew member.”
“BELOW DECK” SEASON 7 EPISODE 3: “Weekend at Brandy’s” is the title of episode 3, which will air on October 21, 2019. Its plot synopsis reads, “Guests Helen Hoey and Richard Fiore return, but it’s their friends who take center stage; Kevin confronts Simone; Abbi continues to struggle; Kevin scrambles to put together a seafood extravaganza; Capt. Lee is less than impressed with dinner.”
“BELOW DECK” SEASON 7 EPISODE 4: On October 28, 2019, “Weekend at Brandy’s II” will air and the description of the episode says, “Charter guest Brandy continues to stress out the entire crew with her intoxicated shenanigans, culminating in an emergency beach rescue; Brian breaks an expensive piece of equipment; Tanner gets stood up for a date; Kevin insults Capt. Lee.” This description makes us wonder if Chef Kevin Dobson will be replaced. We are crossing our fingers for a Chef Ben Robinson appearance.
