Below Deck Mediterranean Season 8 takes place in Genoa, Italy, under the leadership of Captain Sandy. Other crew members have also returned – like Kyle Viljoen and Natalya Scudder.

Below Deck Under’s Tumi Mhlongo and Luka Brunton have also entered the Mediterranean show.

Here’s everything we know about the Season 8 cast and when you can expect to see them on screen.

Thanks to Bravo, we have short biographies of every crew member in Below Deck Med Season 8.

Sandy Yawn – Captain

Captain Sandy will lead the journey throughout Genoa and the Italian Riviera, but her favorite places to travel are the South of France and the Amalfi Coast.

Kyle Viljoen – Stew

Kyle appeared as a second stew in Med’s previous season and has now returned. He hails from South Africa and can identify the country’s animals by only their sounds.

Natalya Scudder – Stew

Natalya started working as a stew at only 18 years old. Like Kyle, she also worked on Med’s seventh season. Her favorite places to travel include Costa Rica and Raja Ampat.

Tumi Mhlongo – Chief Stew

Season 8 marks Tumi’s first time as a Chief Stew and chartering in the Mediterranean. She previously appeared on Below Deck Down Under, like Lead Deckhand Luka Brunton.

Luka Brunton – Lead Deckhand

Viewers know Luka as Adam Kodra’s replacement in Below Deck Down Under Season 2. Now, he has crossed over into Mediterranean territory as the show’s Lead Deckhand.

Chef Jack Luby is a new crew member from Liverpool, England. He has 14 years of experience as a chef and loves creating travel vlogs for his YouTube channel.

A Hawaii native, Jessika Asai is another crew member unfamiliar with the Below Deck franchise. She’s spent four years in the yachting industry and enjoys doing pilates.

Another South African is onboard after the Below Deck debut of Bosun Ruan Irving. He has over 10 years of yachting experience and loves to ” box spearfish, surf, ride motorcross bikes, and swim.”

Lara marks the third South African on board and is also another new crew member. Her favorite places to travel include Bonifacio, France, and Bali.

Lastly, viewers will also meet Haleigh Gorman for the first time in Med’s Season 8. She previously worked on small ships for 10 years and loves “hiking, scuba diving, fishing, and yoga.”

Below Deck fans have to wait until September 25 to see just how much drama this cast will get themselves into.

Zero interest in toxic Sandy, Kyle and Natalya. Love Tumi but they'll probably torture her. Allegedly, Aesha was seen filming so not sure if she steps in at some point. BD is pretty good at keeping secrets.

What a boring episode and the conflict between Tumi and Natalya at the end seemed forced. I can see Tumi getting fired. I'm not a Natalya fan but Tumi came in with a lousy attitude. At least we were spared the sight of Kyle for another week.

[quote] Captain Lee Thinks Captain Sandy Is ‘Responsible’ for Ruan Irving Scandal on Below Deck Med

Captain Lee Rosbach has weighed in on that messy document drama from Below Deck Mediterranean, and he has an interesting idea about who is actually responsible for the mishap.

Season 8 started off with a boatload of nonsense when Captain Sandy Yawn learned that the bosun, Ruan Irving, didn’t have the appropriate documents. He submitted photocopies with someone else’s face on them, which is obviously a big no-no. She promptly gave Ruan the boot from the boat, and he was gone for good.

Although Captain Sandy quickly resolved the problem with Ruan, Captain Lee took to his podcast to criticize her for the incident. During a recent episode of Podcast One’s Salty With Captain Lee, he said that Captain Sandy was responsible.

When talking about the Below Deck Med drama, Captain Lee didn’t know who to blame at first. His co-host faulted the casting team, which certainly makes sense. However, Captain Lee had a different opinion.

“The first thing is production should have already vetted all of his documents to make sure that he’s capable and can fulfill his position,” Captain Lee explained. “It’s not casting, it’s production that needs to vet everyone. They obviously dropped the ball there.”

Obviously, Captain Sandy doesn’t work in casting or production for Below Deck, but Captain Lee still found a way to blame her. He comes from a strict school of thought that the captain is responsible for every single thing that happens on the boat. So, he explained that Captain Sandy is ultimately to blame for the drama.

“As I’ve said in the past, the only person who’s responsible for everything that happens on that vessel is the captain.” Captain Lee explained. “Good, bad, right, wrong, it doesn’t make any goddamn difference. The captain is responsible.”

So, we’ll see what else Captain Sandy ends up being responsible for through Season 8. If she’s literally responsible for every single thing that happens as Captain Lee suggested, then she’s got a long charter season ahead of her.

Then I guess Lee is responsible for Kate's repeated bullying of other crew members since he allowed it to continue. He's an asshole and shouldn't be throwing stones at anyone else.

I like Tumi but she's not ready to be a chief stew. I loathe Natalya but she's a great stew. Lazy Kyle wanting to be Chief Stew is hilarious.

by Anonymousreply 15October 10, 2023 2:03 AM

I agree R15.

Natalya is a great stew.

She started on day one with a very positive attitude, smiling, cheerful, organized, and working hard. The entire charter went smoothly, thanks to Natalya's leadership.

Tumi was a fucking disaster. She started off on a negative note, criticized the boat, didn't acknowledge Natalya's help setting up the interior, and then attacked her with a bad attitude.

I was hopeful for Tumi based on her Below Deck Down Under performance, but she fucking sucks. Jayson must be mortified at recommending her.

Especially compared to what a great job Luka is doing. He's humble, a hard worker, no attitude, and has a good sense of humor.

Tumi needs to be fired and replaced.

Same goes for Kyle who poisoned the pot from the very beginning. He is a shit-stirrer, and he's partly to blame for the drama.

by Anonymousreply 16October 11, 2023 3:16 AM

I'm disappointed that Tumi has aligned herself with Kyle. Making Kyle second stew and putting Natalya in laundry was such a cunt move. I remember reading somewhere that Aesha was spotted filming with Sandy this season and I would not be surprised if she replaces Tumi.

Agreed, r41. It's been nice to see Sandy (sorry, *Captain* Sandy) take a back seat this season. I spotted watching a couple seasons back because she was so verbally abusive.

Natalya is trouble, what an instigator! When the other 2 stews talked while cleaning rooms at the end of the episode, then they were laughing & talking with Tumi at dinner while Natalya was giving them dagger eyes across the table 😆

Also, Natalya's extensions look really fake. There was a shot in last week's episode where she leaned over to clean something and you could see the glued-in parts. Between the hair & glasses, I think she looks like the "after" version of Lauren Boebert.

I was also wondering why Tumi or Natalya didn't tell Sandy of Kyle's illness. Sandy flipped shit a few seasons back because a bosun didn't inform her of a medical incident with a deckhand.

Natalya's getting completely played by her boyfriend. She has no clue how dumb she looks winding herself up over him.

Kyle is insane and is doing more damage than the inexperienced leaders of that crew are aware.

No one feels safe because who knows who Kyle will go off on next. It's no wonder Alex is leaving.

Natalya was an emotional basket case who needed to leave, but Kyle is a nasty queen who preys upon the weak. I'm glad Shandy's gonna hand his ass to him next week.

I just feel bad that Frenchy was one of Kyle's targets, too, and now feels like he has to leave the boat, as well. I was starting to like him.

I lost a little respect for Luka when he decided to fuck that bland Asian girl. I guess he was really horny.

Sadly, Sandy will not fire Kyle because they would be down two stews and that would be ridiculous. She'll give him another chance. I was just starting to like Max, too. I hope he changes his mind and stays. Natalya is a lot but she's a great stew and a hard worker. They're going to miss her.

by Anonymousreply 61November 28, 2023 4:11 PM

This season is so much better than last.

These people are a very weird bunch.

I just caught up on the last five episodes, and didn't realize so much happened.

Tumi - Such an ineffective leader. She's just out for Tumi. She doesn't care about managing her interior, she doesn't rein in either Natalya or Kyle (because she can't handle them), and she is quite a bit to blame for the toxic work environment in the interior. The producers won't bring her back again as Chief Stew.

Natalya - Crazy eyes. Manipulator. Narcissist. User. She thought she was in control, but I'm glad the interior turned the tables on her and forced her out. She was a cunt in her previous season on BDM, and she's a cunt this season. Good fucking riddance!

Kyle -Toxic Bipolar Queen. He is poisonous and he's a bully. Completely paranoid and creates scenarios in his head that are far-removed from reality. He really is the common denominator in all the drama, but Natalya had a hand in it too. Between the two of them, I have never seen such a pair of manipulative, shit stirring, back stabbing cunts in all seasons of Below Deck. No wonder they were friends, and no wonder they are enemies.

Jess - Useless floater.

Lily - Keeps talking about what a fast learner she is, how she went to University, and worked at Wimbledon, but her work performance reflects absolutely NONE of that. One episode in, and she really has done a shit job.

Chef - He seems like a good guy. Tries to get along with people, and treats everyone well. He has the best temperament of any of the other BD chefs I've watched. And I can't blame him for his relationship with Kyle. Chef put it perfectly: Kyle could be in a closet with a mop, and there would still be drama.

Luka - He's doing a great job as Bosun. Watching his communication with Sandy as she backed the boat into Portofino, was just brilliant. He was so on the ball, and crystal clear in his directions on the walkie talkie. I don't think most people realize that he's only in his 20's because he is really mature and extremely competent at his job. Give the guy his Bosun stripes already. I'd love to see him take over as Bosun next season on Below Deck Down Under with Captain Jayson.

Max - I've liked him from the beginning. He's so handsome and so good natured and playful. I felt horrible about how Kyle treated him, when all he was doing was trying to show his support for gay people. Fuck Kyle for doing that to Max. I don't blame him for wanting to leave after that, but I'm very happy he decided to stay. He's such a sensitive guy, and it broke my heart to think that Kyle made him feel so low.

Lara - I have mixed emotions about her. She can be cool at times, but she can also be aggressive and judgmental at others. I am happy though that she came around in her treatment of Max. It shows what a natural leader Luka is, because it was his idea to get her to praise Max, rather than yell at him, because it worked.

Hayleigh - Nice girl. She's been in the background the whole time, but at least she isn't causing drama.

The rest of the season (6 more episodes) looks like it's going to be a clusterfuck for the deck team though. Sandy is going to get pissed at them for slacking, and Natalya comes back to cause more drama.

Can't wait!

by Anonymousreply 62November 29, 2023 7:53 AM

I'm so glad Max decided to stay. I loved the way the show kept showing the Eiffel Tower graphic going up more and more throughout the episode. :-)

And seeing him naked with just a towel over his privates was quite enjoyable. I only wish he and Luka had entertained the ladies on the charter in their Speedos.

by Anonymousreply 95December 12, 2023 9:39 PM

Luka gets a pass because he didn't sign on to be bosun and Sandy probably should have tried harder to find someone with more experience. He's doing a good job but missteps are to be expected and, so far, they've been pretty minor. It's not his fault Sandy fell on her ass.

Sandy was drunk when she fell.

Omg the ending made me laugh.

Sandy was being a bitch.

Max was being a crybaby, and told her there was no food for HIM. He didn't say there was no food. Just no vegetarian food that he wanted to eat.

Sandy mis-heard, and thought Max said there was no food at all. So she screams at him to come up to the bridge, and calls him a liar.

But Max wasn't lying. He was just whining about there not being any food that he WANTED to eat. And I did hear him say that.

But she kept calling him a liar, then said "What you need to do is say you're sorry."

And Max replies, "NO." Rofl!!!!

He is such a brat. But he was right. He didn't lie.

Another funny thing he did was when he kept complaining about how tired he was, and how he just needed to go lie down.

So what does he do? Crawls (he sort of does the inchworm move) on his stomach from the galley to his cabin, which probably took more energy than just walking there.

I love when Luka said to Lara, "If you're tired, would you have the energy to do that?" Lol.

Oh, and those gay guests are the absolute worst. What a bunch of demanding, complaining assholes.

You don't do a big gay breakfast by adding food coloring.

Since a big gay breakfast isn't a real thing, you're going to get whatever the chef thinks it is. If you want eggs Benedict and mimosas, say so.

Kyle saying, "I must be a celebrity!" was so cringeworthy.

He's so obnoxious.

At least Sandy stood by the Chefs gay breakfast. It was totally fine. What were they expecting? Cum oatmeal? PREP Mimosas? Cock rings around the sausages? What an ugly bunch of queens. But their fag hag seemed nice.

She's worse than some men, when it comes to ogling women and making crass remarks.

She also grunts like a pig.

There's something very weird and predatory about her. She also has a real mean streak.

God, Kyle is such a lazy ass drama queen. She'll find any excuse she can to get off the boat and not do any work.

"I'm suffering from dehydration and exhaustion." No, gurl. You're suffering from Diva.

And no, you're not a celebrity. You're a thong wearing twat.

Once again, Cap'n Shandy, the self-proclaimed management expertise and leadership coach, demonstrates what a shitty manager she is, publicly shaming Max. She did the same thing to a deck crew member a couple of seasons ago.

Anyone who's ever managed people knows it's never okay to name and shame an employee in front of other employees. It's degrading, humiliating, and everything but motivating. If you have a problem with an employee, you address the issue with them privately. You never put an employee on the spot in front of others.

Shandy was just looking for an opportunity to play to the cameras and perpetuate the image she's trying to create of her as a "no nonsense bad bitch."

Besides, I'm team Max on this one. He didn't say there was no food; he said there was no food for him. I wouldn't have apologized, either.

by Anonymousreply 116December 21, 2023 11:21 AM

That was funny when Sandy outed Luka and Katie Flood.

She really had no clue, so it made me laugh seeing her stand there making those lovey dovey comments about Luka and Katie, when everyone else was sitting there awkwardly.

And how huge was that tip???

Kyle gets worse and worse, with each charter.

He sleeps during this entire charter, and on the final day he decides to wake up and he feels fine. Fine enough to collect the tip.

Blech. Kyle just gives me the creeps. He's so nasty.

by Anonymousreply 117January 9, 2024 4:55 AM

If I paid all of that money and because there weren't enough crew members, the ship never left the dock - the tip would be ZERO.

Surely Cap'n Shandy will get it figured out.

Put Kyle's big fat ass on the deck team.

by Anonymousreply 118January 9, 2024 2:50 PM

Where the fuck does Kyle get off talking about his personal struggles on the boat with guests?! His fat, lazy ass should be canned for that alone.

And once again, Cap'N Shandy demonstrates what a shitty manager is, talking about a crew member's personal life and teasing him in front of his peers.

Is she drinking again?

Shandy and Tootie were on WWHL. Both highly delusional. Tootie wisely has distanced herself from Kyle while Shandy thinks he has potential to be a chief stew. I guess that's the closest we'll get to a reunion.

What is Kyle’s lure for Bravo, besides being someone the fans can hate?

He is lazy and leaves nothing but drama and discord in his wake. He’s not particularly attractive either.

If he must come back I want him reporting to someone able to outcunt him, like a Kate Chastain type. He needs to be canned midseason and leave the boat sobbing.

If they don’t do that he can fuck all the way off.

I can see Kyle on House of Villans. Not Traitors. They can do better. For me, he's ruined every season he's been on. Sadly, he thinks he's representing the gays but he's not doing us any favors.

R127 Yeah, it's clear that Tumi, after watching the season, is finished with Kyle. When she said she'd rather work with Natalia again over Kyle, that pretty much said it all.

And I didn't get the sense that Shandy was all that high on Kyle, either. She said she'd "give him a chance" at being a chief stew, but she stopped short of saying he'd be good at it.
