How are the Below Deck charter guests selected?

Overshadowing the guests this season is Captain Lee Rosbach, who looks to be absent from most of the upcoming season.

“I have a condition,” Rosbach says at the start of the trailer.

Luckily, he does come back to lead the crew again, making a return near the end of the teaser.

The crew will need Captain Lee to be at his best if they have any hope of navigating the choppy waters and unruly guests.

Below Deck season nine premieres on October 26 on Bravo in the USA. A UK release date is yet to be confirmed.
