Who is Camille Lamb?

Camille Lamb was born and raised in the Mississippi town of Past Christian. Camille formed a profound relationship with her loved ones as a member of a close-knit family, which she has maintained to this day. She is still close to her parents despite being in her early twenties. She not only makes time for them but also shows her love and appreciation on her social media platforms. Camille was born into a family of merchant seamen, which led to her early love of life on the ocean. Camille is a "5th Gen Seafarer," according to her Instagram bio.

Camille began sailing at the age of nine and quickly realized her enthusiasm for being out on the wide sea. Although her parents supported and pushed her to pursue her aspirations, she had no intention of entering the yachting business at first. Instead, she began her professional career as a cocktail server before auditioning for 'American Idol'. Camille reached the Showstopper Round on the singing reality program but was finally ousted, prompting her to rediscover herself via sailing.

Camille began working as a Cocktail Server at the Golden Nugget Biloxi in June 2018 after finishing her education. She did, however, accept a position as an Administrative Assistant at the Tableau Restaurant in New Orleans, Louisiana in July of the following year. Camille immediately auditioned for 'American Idol', and won a chance to perform on the famed singing reality show while working at the Tableau Restaurant until January 2020. On 'American Idol', she sang with Althea Grace and advanced to the round of 64 before being eliminated.


Dejected after the elimination, she decided to return to her sailing origins, and in March 2021, she was offered a job as a Sailing Mate/Snorkel Guide at the Bolongo Bay Beach Resort in the Virgin Islands. Camille went on to work as a Cocktail Server at the Silver Slipper Casino Hotel in June 2021, but resigned after only a few months to become a Charted Yacht Host at Island Boat MDR. Camille joined the Chicago Blackhawks as a Yacht Stewardess in April 2022 and has since made a name for herself in the profession.

Camille has worked on boats along the coastlines of Florida and California since her first charter season in the Virgin Islands, with her most recent Instagram activity showing her located in Ft Lauderdale. Camille, like chief stew Aesha Scott, is seldom in one area for long and has toured the Grand Canyon, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. While Camille's résumé isn't vast, seeing her balance two departments on 'Below Deck' will be fascinating.

Possible feud with Alissa Humber

Notwithstanding the crew's best efforts, lines are finally established, with Camille and stew Alissa Humber hinting at a probable conflict. Despite her background, Camille finds it challenging to work "both on deck and inside the yacht as a deck/stew" on 'Below Deck'. Due to her dual position, she "loses motivation on board," according to her show's bio. Camille gets into a fight with stew Alissa in the trailer when the latter informs her, "Everybody, literally, is like, ‘We need somebody faster."

Camille responds, "OK, then you f*cking do it."

Camille identifies herself in the reality TV promo as: "I am a small-town Mississippi gal. I’m a really big personality. I love to twerk."


The new season of 'Below Deck' will premiere on Bravo on Monday, November 21 at 8 pm ET. The episodes are also available the next day on Peacock.
