There is no doubt that the world below deck is small.

For example, Below Deck Med’s Mzi “Zee” Dempers” and Below Deck Sailing Yacht alum Georgia Grobler dated before either of them were on their respective shows.
Below Deck Down Under is no exception to this rule. Ahead of the premiere, Below Deck Mediterranean Fellow Hannah Ferrier revealed that she’s known Captain Jason Chambers for years.
So what are these shocking connections below deck? Let’s take a look.
