Captain Lee Rosbach says au revoir to Below Deck.
Below Deck Captain Lee Rosbach will not be returning to the ship amid his season 10 health issues.
Now, the trailer for the upcoming season 11 has revealed the new captain- Captain Kerry Titheradge.
Captain Lee Rosbach battled health issues all through season 10.
Previously, Captain Lee had been forced to leave the ship mid-charter [season] due to ongoing nerve issues that made it difficult to walk.
“My injury is getting worse,” the captain revealed in a confessional.
“The left side of my body, I don’t feel anything,” he explained.
Additionally, Captain Lee cited an inability to effectively perform his duties due to his limited movement and use of crutches.
“One of my biggest problems now is I’m not able to observe,” Captain Lee explained.
“I don’t know who’s doing what, it’s my job.”
What about the reports that Bravo did not ask Rosbach back for season 11?
While Captain Lee was honest about his health struggles, TV Deets reported in May of this year that Captain Lee Confirmed he “was not asked back” for the new season.
And this news came about after the captain himself took to X to correct a viewer’s assumptions that he stepped down.
Sorry Mary, but my health had nothing to do with it. And my Dr didn’t recommend it. Still hitting the gym daily, as always. I’m doing just fine and thanks for being concerned and a huge fan. https://t.co/po6d6apqsy
