Below Deck, Below Deck Mediterranean, and Below Deck Sailing Yacht cast members must abide by strict rules or risk termination of the Bravo show. Fans know specific behind-the-scenes details regarding the hit yachting show such as the cast and production never interact. It turns out that this is just one line from the many cast members to follow before filming begins.
There are a few rules, or rather, rules, that apply before the cast even participates in the show.
All potential crew members must register online, be at least 21 years old and submit to a background check. Everyone who wants to participate in the reality series must have the right license and certification to work on yachts.
The cast is required to be honest with the production before hiring. However, this has not always been the case, as with Malia White and Adam Glick.
Below Deck Med: Rules On The Yacht
Below Deck Med Season 5 has many rules while working on a yacht. Some of them include declaring all prescription medications, not drinking at sea and random drug tests for safety issues.
All members of the cast must use titles for the crew, such as captain, boatswain, etc., and show respect at all times. Even those who are never shown in front of the camera should be respected and referred to the job title.
As the viewers have seen, the crew must line up to greet the guests and say goodbye to the charters. It is a sign of respect. Any drama of the crew must be kept away from the guests, like when the group had no idea that chef Kiko Loran was fired.
The cast of Under Deck, Below Deck Mediterranean, and Below Deck Sailing Yacht deserve a nice chunk of change to be on the show. In return, they agree to the rules and understand that the network can fire a person at any time.
