Meet Jason Chambers, Below Deck: Down Under Captain
Peacock network is offering viewers the new spin-off of Below Deck titled Down Under. The new show is based in Australia this time and it premiered on 18 March 2022. And like always, viewers are excited to learn about the crew line-up who are set to sail around Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef.
Meet Jason Chambers, captain for the series and the youngest captain on the franchise yet. Hailing from Australia, his decades’ worth of experience will come in handy to get through a turbulent time to stir the boat as well as his other crew members. He is linked with crews of Below Deck Mediterranean so he is very familiar with all the challenges of being on a TV show.
Joining him in the cruise are chief stew Aesha Scott, chef Ryan McKeown, second stew Tumi Mhlongo, third stew Magda Ziomek, bosun Jamie Sayed, deckhand Culver Bradbury, female deckhand Brittni Burton, and Ben Crawley, the final member of the deck team.
Jason is also nick-named “Captain Cutie” and his dashing looks haven’t gone noticed among the crew members. Stew Magda Ziomek commented about the captain on the trailer of the show, “He is so handsome. He’s like a real man.”. He has also shared his thoughts on the nickname with Distractify. He told, “I’m smiling about it. I’m enjoying it, and I’m taking it on”.
Speaking of his role as a captain Jason shared, “I’m not the type of captain who sits in his wheelhouse looking at his laptop. I like time with my crew. It’s a family…I’m more of a big brother than a captain.”
Jason credited fellow Aussie and former Below Deck chief stew Hannah Ferrier for him being on the show. Speaking about the process of joining the show, Jason spoke with and shared Decider, “She was probably the one that made me sign on to do this show”. He added, “You’re a great fit for it. Just be yourself and just go and have fun.”
Whereas Jason told OK Magazine, “To be honest with you, there was hesitation leading up to it. But after the first one or two phone calls I had, I was starting to get more upset if they didn’t accept me.”
Jason Chambers Age
Captain Jason Chambers hasn’t shared his age yet, but he is over 38 years old as of 2022.
Jason Chambers Net Worth
Below Deck sensation, Jason Chambers has a net worth above $400 thousand.
According to Jason Chambers’s LinkedIn, he has been working as the captain of the Yacht Pursuit since April 2018. He stated, “Working on a private expedition support vessel in Asia and Pacific after years of charter and private yachts cruising the Med and Caribbean.”
According to Starcasm, Jason was the captain of a 45.6-meter superyacht Moatize which crashed into a Queensland marina in 2019, narrowly missing a restaurant trawler. The video went viral and he spoke with an Australian news outlet explaining the incident.
We came in and did a tight turn, which we have to do, and our starboard gear was stuck ahead when I selected to go astern,” Jason explained to 7News Sydney. “We could have taken out one of the other vessels, a [Timber?] schooner there, which had personnel on there, so the damage could have been a catastrophe.”
Jason also added, “I’m not even worried about the money, to be quite honest…We’re just making sure that everyone here is still functioning — the businesses — and there’s no one here that’s put out, and there are no injuries. That’s the only concern.”
Besides being captain, he is also the owner and CEO of The Beach House at OcamOcam. The beach house’s Instagram states in its bio, “A gorgeous boutique stay, island-style 🌴 We love to eat tropical food 🥥 Island adventures 🏝 Coral gardens 🐠 Chill poolside 🌅☀️ @abeautyfulllife.”
Over the years, he had jobs of different nature. Speaking with OK Magazine, he shared, “I’ve been a mechanic, I’ve been a plumber. I was an engineer on yachts, I was a professional rugby league player. I built a resort in the Philippines.” He added that he was ready for “something different” when it came to deciding to join the show.
Does Jason Chambers Have A Wife Or A Girlfriend?
Jason Chambers’ relationship status remains unclear. He is a father to a seven-year-old daughter Saskia who lives with her mom in the Philippines. Saskia was born in Spain.
During the time of COVID, Jason and his daughter spent a year apart from each other because of the locked-down of borders. They reportedly reunited in February 2022.
However, Jason has been in a battle for years to balance his career and his family life. He told Distractify, “It’s difficult. I’ve been struggling to do that for seven years now, being away from her… I’m doing everything I can to bring her more into my life as the years go on. Hopefully, this journey that I’m on now allows me to see her a little bit longer.”
Jason appears to be single and we can hope for a boatmance on the show.
