Who could forget Kyle Dixon — the smooth-talking deckhand with an accent as thick as clotted cream? His love life was nothing if not complicated, and viewers couldn’t get enough of the romantic drama he brought to “Below Deck.” Although he got off to a good start, Kyle soon found himself embroiled in love triangles and struggled to handle rejection.
While his personal life caused a stir on board, his infectious sense of humor helped diffuse tense situations. But let’s be honest, Kyle’s behavior sometimes caused more problems than it solved — especially his treatment of fellow crew member Jen Howell when he returned for season 5. Despite the drama, we have to admit, Kyle made for some entertaining television.
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.
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.
Kyle Dixon — Now
What has former deckhand Kyle Dixon been up to since leaving the show? Well, the charming Brit has been busy with his own charter company, Meerkat Madness Charters, taking guests on luxurious yachting adventures. Kyle has also dabbled in reality TV, appearing on "Smuggled," a show about sneaking into Britain.
This proved that he's still got a bit of the adventurous spirit we all loved on “Below Deck.” These days, Kyle enjoys a quieter life, spending time with his loyal canine companion, Luna, and sharing memories from his time on the yacht with fans. While Kyle may not be making a comeback on “Below Deck” anytime soon, we'll always have fond memories of his colorful personality and accent.
Tanner Sterback — the mama's boy with a heart of gold and a penchant for partying. During his stint on “Below Deck” season 7, Tanner proved that he could work hard and play hard. Whether he was hooking up with his fellow crewmate Simone, unsuccessfully courting chief stewardess Kate, or calling home on his days off, Tanner was always on the move.
His mother's warnings to be careful didn't quite deter him from stirring up some romantic drama on board, but we say that's all part of the fun! Life at sea may not have been his truest passion, but Tanner's laid-back personality and Long Island charm held a special place in our hearts during his time on the show.
