Since her time on “Below Deck,” Ashling Lorger has been busy building her career as a model and influencer, promoting a range of products on social media. However, she has also remained connected to the show, often appearing on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” to discuss her experience while she was there.
Lorger has made it clear that she is open to returning to the series if given the opportunity, and her dedication to being the best stewardess she can be would make her a valuable asset to any yacht crew. Whether or not it will happen, we’ll have to wait and see!
Brianna Adekeye — Now
Since her time on "Below Deck," Brianna Adekeye has continued to live life on her own terms. She's still the laidback and free-spirited individual that fans fell in love with during season 5, though we would have been surprised if that had changed! Instead of sticking to a traditional career path, Brianna has been traveling the world and exploring her creative side.
From sharing her abstract art on Instagram to trying her hand at being a yacht chef, she's always up for trying something new. Although fans would love to see her back on “Below Deck,” it's clear that Brianna is embracing her nonconformist ways, and experiencing life at the fullest.
Brianna Adekeye's stint on "Below Deck" season 5 was a breath of fresh air for viewers who were tired of the constant drama! As the chill and conflict-averse second stew, Brianna stood out for her laidback attitude and work ethic — something we don't get to see a lot of on this drama-filled show.
Even though third stewardess Jennifer Howell tried to stir up tension between Brianna and Kate Chastain, Brianna never let the conflict get to her. She kept her cool and continued to impress with her skills, her friendliness, and her even temper. Brianna's presence on the show was a reminder that not all reality TV personalities need to be loud and combative to be interesting.
Ashling Lorger's journey on "Below Deck" was quite the adventure! After leaving her career as a hairdresser and business owner behind, she found herself working as a third stew on a yacht, allowing her to fulfill her desire for travel. While on board, Lorger had to navigate some drama caused by a fellow crew member, Elizabeth Frankini.
Her work ethic was found lacking by chief stew Francesca Rubi. Lorger remained dedicated to following the rules and ensuring guest safety, and by keeping her head down, she was able to move up to second stew when Frankini was fired. We don't know what her plans are, but Lorger seems like a perfect candidate for future seasons of "Below Deck."
Sam Orme — Now
While she wasn't necessarily thriving as a yachtie, it seems Sam Orme has come a long way since her time on "Below Deck" season 1. Not only did she return to a job as Vice President at a solar energy company, but she also holds a Bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering, which is endlessly impressive.
She is now the Enterprise Program Manager at Fidelity National Information Services — a ways away from the life she left at sea. On a personal level, Sam is happily married with a family, and absolutely adores her furry companion, Ed. It's always heartwarming to see former reality stars doing well in their personal and professional lives, even long after their time in the spotlight.
