Since leaving “Below Deck,” Rayna has been on a journey of self-discovery, focusing on her health and personal growth. One of her biggest accomplishments is going sober, something which she announced shortly after the show aired. She has also revealed that she’s done with reality TV and is looking forward to pursuing bigger and better things.
Last we heard, Rayna had picked up pole dancing as a form of self-expression and exercise and had started her own beauty business, ASE BEAUTY BAR, where she showcases her skills as a lash technician. It’s great to see Rayna thriving in her new ventures, and we can’t wait to see what she accomplishes next.
Jake Foulger — Now
After his eventful time on "Below Deck" — and his noted absence from the reunion — Jake has been open about his struggles with mental health and is focusing on his own well-being. Fans have applauded his honesty and bravery in sharing his story, and have expressed their support for him.
While he's taking a break from yachting to work on himself, Jake hasn't ruled out the possibility of returning to "Below Deck" in the future. We're definitely looking forward to seeing more of his fun-loving and quirky personality on the show, but for now, we're just happy to see that he's prioritizing his own health and happiness.
Rayna Lindsey made a big impression on viewers during her brief time on “Below Deck” season 9. As one of the only Black cast members, she spoke up when chief stewardess Heather Chase used a racial slur while singing a song, sparking a confrontation that quickly went viral. Despite Heather's initial denials, Rayna stood her ground and demanded an apology.
This eventually came both on and off-screen. Throughout the season, Rayna showed strength and grace in the face of adversity, and her willingness to call out racism on a national platform earned her the respect and admiration of many fans. Though her time on the show was short, Rayna made a lasting impact and set an important example for others.
Fraser was the charming and affable second stew on "Below Deck" season 9, who quickly won over fans with his wit and humor. However, he truly made history by becoming the first-ever male chief steward in the show's history in season 10. Despite a rocky start and a continually tumultuous season, Fraser showed his true leadership skills and proved to be a force to be reckoned with.
We're so proud to have seen him come into his own! And we're not the only ones: Captain Lee even dubbed him "Mr. Olender" in recognition of his hard work and determination. As we all know, in this world, Captain Lee's praise and respect mean more than anything else.
Fraser Olender — Now
While Fraser Olender's career in the "Below Deck" franchise is only beginning (we hope!), we still wanted to put him on this list. Season 11 is currently in the works, and rumor has it that Fraser is returning to his role as chief stew for a second time. While he has been a part of his fair share of drama, fans hope that the now-veteran will provide some much-needed stability to the crew.
Especially since Captain Lee has officially announced his retirement. As we eagerly anticipate his return to our screens, we can only imagine what exciting new adventures and challenges await us in season 11. One thing's for sure — if Fraser's on the crew, we're sure it'll be a good time!
