Captain Lee Rosbach is not filming Below Deck Season 11. Some reports suggest that the producers didn’t ask him back on the show. However, a new report claims that he quit the show on his own. Keep on reading to learn more.
Captain Kerry Titheradge films Below Deck Season 11
Earlier this month, sources told Us Weekly that Captain Lee Rosbach didn’t return to film Below Deck Season 11. Captain Kerry Titheradge will take over in the new season. He made his debut on the spinoff series, Below Deck Adventure. It’s unclear whether that show will return for another season since he switched to chartering warmer waters.
Fans have already missed Captain Lee Rosbach’s presence on Season 10 of Below Deck. He had to leave the boat for medical issues. Captain Lee experienced nerve damage and mobility problems after his hip surgery. He didn’t want to step back from his job.
Captain Lee clearly loves what he does. He also didn’t want to let the St. David crew down. However, he knew he couldn’t handle the superyacht in the shape that he was. So, he made the decision to leave the boat in the midst of the charter season.
Thankfully, he will make his return on Monday’s episode of Below Deck. Fans have been looking forward to his return. Most are mixed on how Captain Sandy Yawn handled the crew while he was away. Some claim that he went overboard, especially with the way she treated the interior crew.
Meanwhile, Captain Lee Rosbach and Captain Sandy are reportedly on shaky ground. He didn’t like it when she went over him and fired stew/deckhand Camille Lamb for her lazy work ethic. In another episode, she fired second stew Alissa Humber for “insubordination.”
Did Captain Lee Rosbach quit the Bravo series?
Reality Blurb suggests that Captain Lee Rosbach quit the show after 10 seasons. It could be because of his feud with Captain Sandy. Captain Lee claims that she didn’t follow “protocol” when it came to firing crew members. He wished that she would’ve brought up these issues to him instead of taking them into her own hands.
Captain Sandy fired back at his claims. She said she informed Captain Lee of the firing as a”courtesy.” She even reached out to him to settle their feud, but he hasn’t returned their calls. It’s also likely that Captain Lee Rosbach quit the show because of Bravo’s rumored favoritism with Captain Sandy.
