A spin-off of ‘Below Deck,’ Bravo’s reality show ‘Below Deck Mediterranean’ premiered in 2016 and has since skyrocketed in popularity. It centers upon a 150+ feet long mega-yacht and follows a group of crew members during the charter season. In addition to providing spectacular views as the boat cruises through beautiful landscapes, it also allows us a behind-the-scenes peek at how the crew interacts with one another in an uncensored manner. The crew members deal with a variety of drama from the visitors’ expectations while they live and work in the waters of a different Mediterranean nation each season.
As the show entered its seventh season, fans got to see some new faces introduced to the group. Jason Gaskell, a crew member and deckhand who sails on the super-yacht off the coast of Malta is one of them. He possessed the ability to stand out from the squad that includes Captain Sandy Yawn, Mzi Dempers, and a few other new crew members throughout the season. Since viewers must be excited to know everything about this new addition to the show, we’ve got you covered!
