Below Deck’s Captain Lee Promises a “Wild Season”

For Below Deck‘s Captain Sandy Yawn, firing Stew Camille Lamb is water under the boat.

“I stand by it,” Sandy exclusively told E! News. “First and foremost, I don’t fire people unless I have the facts, and, secondly, I don’t fire people out of favoritism or non-favoritism. I fire people because if they’re the one singular thing where everything else is evolving around them, that’s the problem I have to eliminate.”

After Camille was repeatedly warned about her lax work ethic and following her explosive fight with fellow Stew Alissa Humber, Chief Stew Fraser Olender recommended Sandy let her go.

“Sometimes people just walk through life and think what they’re doing is OK just because they’ve never been properly taught you,” Sandy said. “I was that person until someone showed me, but I had to be willing to listen and to remain teachable.”

So where do Sandy and Camille stand today? 

“I did a fundraiser for the maritime industry and she showed up,” Sandy revealed to E!. “A lot of Below Deck people showed up that I didn’t even invite and I thought that’s pretty awesome, because they love the maritime industry.”

But don’t expect the captain and former stew to be hanging out on the regular.

“When I’m a captain I’m not there to make friends, I’m there to do my job,” she continued. “Firing people is never fun, but I try to do it in a gentle way. It doesn’t mean we’ve ended a working relationship. I’m not friends with Camille, we’re not buddies. She showed up, I love the support and it’s like another colleague in the industry. So good terms? I don’t look at good terms. I have to say I’m very neutral when it comes to the crew.”

Drama aside, Sandy assured fans firing Camille was a last resort. “Remember I stepped on Captain Lee‘s boat—the last thing I want to do is start firing his crew,” she said, referencing Lee Rosbach leaving earlier this season due to health issues, “so it’s a very hard line. But my main priority is the client, what’s best for the boat. Happy crew, happy boat, happy client.”

Below Deck airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on Bravo. Scroll down to relive the most dramatic Below Deck firings in Bravo history.

Camille Lamb

If there’s one thing to learn from Camille Lamb‘s Below Deck firing, it’s to not slack off on the job. That’s exactly why the season 10 stew was let go by substitute Captain Sandy Yawn, as Chief Stew Fraser Olender continued to criticize Camille’s behavior on board.

From being caught drinking while preparing for a new charter to partying at late hours and more, Fraser informed Captain Sandy that he had reached his “last straw.”

“She’s the common denominator in all of this,” said Captain Sandy. “Great girl, great personality, but at the same time, we have to do what’s best for the boat.”

Kyle Dickard

Below Deck Adventure‘s Kyle Dickard was let go just three episodes into the reality franchise’s latest series—which premiered in November 2022. After picking fights with his fellow deckhand Nathan Morley—as well as kissing crew mates in front of guests—Kyle was offered by Captain Kerry Titheradge the opportunity to resign so that his firing would not end up on his personal record.

Kyle took the Captain up on his offer and left the boat after just one charter.

Raygan Tyler

Captain Sandy let bosun Raygan Tyler go during season seven of Below Deck Mediterranean, not only for causing the boat to take a small hit while docking, but also for not stepping up to the plate as a leader.

But Captain Sandy didn’t want her firing to discourage the bosun, as she told Raygan, “If I had the time and I wasn’t running a boat this size, I would train you. I would teach you.”

Elizabeth Frankini

In addition to onboard romances and failing to follow directions, one of the biggest reasons behind stew Elizabeth Frankini‘s Below Deck firing was her infamous laundry room accident, during which made a toxic mess when combining bleach and laundry soap.

“Unfortunately, I didn’t know that was so toxic and I feel so bad about it,” she told E! News of the incident in December 2020. “You know, I do feel really bad, especially ’cause Francesca [Rubi] did say, ‘Take it outside.'”

Bravo

Lexi Wilson

Tensions between stew Lexi Wilson and Chef Mathew Shea came to a head during an explosive dinner fight on season six of Below Deck Mediterranean, during which Lexi told Matt that his parents “should’ve aborted you.” That was the last straw for Captain Sandy, who fired her not long after the incident.

Tom Pearson

Deckhand Tom Pearson said “bon voyage” to Below Deck Sailing Yacht after getting let go by Captain Glenn Shephard. Tom hit his last strike with the Captain after failing to report that the boat’s anchor was dragging during heavy winds one night, causing a potential safety risk for everyone on board.

“It had to be done. It was such a grievous thing that he dropped the ball there, he had to go, and we had to just be man down and live with it, you know?” Captain Glenn said of the decision on Watch What Happens Live. “So, obviously, you don’t want to do that, but yeah, it had to happen.”

Ryan McKeown

Some people are picky eaters, but Below Deck Down Under’s Ryan McKeown was quite the picky chef, as he would judge guests’ food requests and fail to take criticism from Captain Jason Chambers, as well.

Perhaps Ryan’s Below Deck exit is one of the franchise’s most memorable, as he mooned Jason and viewers on his way off the boat.

Magda Ziomek

Below Deck Down Under stew Magda Ziomek‘s firing was another case of slacking on the job. After constantly being on her phone texting or video chatting with her boyfriend, Chief Stew Aesha Scott decided to replace Magda before the end of the charter season.

Peter Hunziker

Below Deck Mediterranean‘s Peter Hunziker was fired from the series in June 2020 after he shared an offensive post on social media.

“Peter Hunziker of Below Deck Mediterranean has been terminated for his racist post,” Bravo wrote in a statement at the time. “Bravo and 51 Minds are editing the show to minimize his appearance for subsequent episodes.”

Hannah Ferrier

Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier was let go by Captain Sandy on Below Deck Mediterranean after boson Malia White discovered her co-star possessed undeclared Valium and a vape pen, the former of which Hannah claimed was for her anxiety.

“If I could do it all over again, I would’ve just declared them as soon as I came on board,” Hannah stated in an August 2020 interview with E! News. “It was definitely not something that was intentional. I wasn’t trying to hide anything.

Delaney Evans

Below Deck Mediterranean‘s Delaney Evans left just as quickly as she arrived. After initially being brought on during season six to help out Chief Stew Katie Flood, Katie determined that Delaney was doing more harm than good, choosing to let her go after just one charter.

“I think she was overwhelmed with the situation, and I think that, you know, in her mind, the best solution to the situation was just to go back to what they had before,” Delaney told Bravo Insider of Katie’s decision. “I think she was just overwhelmed with everything that was going on and all the feedback she was getting.”

Shane Coopersmith

Deckhand Shane Coopersmith was a bit in over his head on season eight of Below Deck, as he was let go for failing to know basic skills, reporting late for duty and taking naps on the job.

Leon Walker

Chaos in the kitchen led to Captain Lee Rosbach letting Chef Leon Walker go on season three of Below Deck. After an oven fire broke out, Lee placed the blame on Chief Stew Kate Chastain but was ultimately the one sent home.

Chris Brown

Like several of the franchise’s stars, Below Deck‘s Chris Brown was fired during season five for failing to fully perform his duties. After being let go by Captain Lee, Chris shared some parting words as he left the boat, stating, “Who gives a s–t?”

Bravo

Mila Kolomeitseva

Chef Mila Kolomeitseva was fired by Captain Sandy on season four of Below Deck Mediterranean after failing to use her cooking skills to produce top-quality food for guests—including some not-so-nice nachos.

“Of course it makes me feel awful,” Mila said of her departure. “People like me who have big egos sometimes have to be put down to earth a little bit. But it makes me feel like I want to work even harder.”

BRAVO

Chandler Brooks

Sometimes people just don’t work well together. That’s exactly why Captain Lee fired Chandler Brooks during season six of Below Deck, telling the boson, “I don’t think it’s a good fit.”
