'Below Deck' Season 9: Captain Lee's replacement Sean Meagher gives fans creepy vibes
'Omg this new captain is the worrrrrst! He is certified crazy. Captain Lee can’t get back fast enough #BelowDeck,' wrote a fan
For eight glorious seasons Captain Lee Rosbach kept 'Below Deck' fans entertained with his grumpy attitude and wry sense of humor. So, when the hit Bravo show was set to make a comeback with Season 9, several fans eagerly tuned in to see their favorite silver-haired captain's new adventures aboard luxury superyacht My Seanna alongside his new crew. Unfortunately, many fans were left feeling dejected and disappointed when instead of the familiar face of Captain Lee they were greeted with the face of new Captain Sean Meagher.
Before you panic, Captain Lee hasn't left the show, he will be returning to our favorite Bravo show a little later this season. In the meanwhile, Captain Sean will be taking his place. After watching the premiere episode of the show, just like Eddie Lucas, first officer of the crew, fans too can't wait for the return of Captain Lee aka the stud of the seas. The new Captain's micromanaging and his open threats to fire the staff didn't sit well either with the My Seanna crew or the fans.
Captain Sean made it very clear right from the get-go that his management style and way of doing things are very different from Captain Lee's. While introducing himself to the crew he immediately decided to lay down the law and let everybody know that he wasn't the one to be messed around with by curtly telling them that although he's bad with whipping the ball he was pretty good with slinging the axe. He then openly told the staff that he wouldn't think twice to fire the staff if they messed up anything and that he would prefer running the ship short-handed than having a goof up.
True to his word, Captain Sean began interfering with all the crew members' duties. From fluffing up the cushions to setting up the guests' picnic tables and taking over the deck hands' duties, Captain Sean did everything by himself. Eddie was so unhappy with the new Captain's extreme 'hands on' way of working that he begged Captain Lee to return soon in his confessional.
Eddie isn't the only one, as several fans too took to Twitter to express that they weren't feeling the new Captain and wanted Captain Lee to return. A fan tweeted, "Omg this new captain is the worrrrrst! He is certified crazy. Captain Lee can’t get back fast enough #BelowDeck #Bravo #WWHL." "Ok, new captain is #CreepDaddy #BelowDeck," wrote a fan. Another fan added, "#BelowDeck This new Captain is giving me creepy Maniac Matt vibes from #BelowDeckMed." "#BelowDeck sorry Bravo HR department needs to have a chat with Captain Sean. Dude is Creepy AF #WWHL," echoed a fan.
Another fan shared, "This new captain is annoying. Give me @capthlr #belowdeck." "So Captain Sean…. Ughhhh we need our boat daddy back soon LOL #BELOWDECK," expressed a fan. "That Captain Sean is the worst kind of micromanager. People like that don't need a crew, they don't allow the crew to do their jobs. #BelowDeck," pointed out a fan.
