The ninth season of Below Deck premiered on 25 October 2021 and the show is returning with almost an entirely new cast. Among the new additions is Heather Chase, the Chief Stewardess. Heather has already been getting a lot of attention after only two episodes. And we are all curious about her boyfriend Kegan Tyler Emms.
The ninth season of Below Deck will also feature My Seanna, the same yacht that was featured in the last season. Only, Chief Stewardess Francesca Rubi is replaced by Heather Chase.
Anyway, who is Kegan Tyler Emms? Find the answer to this question with interesting wikis about his age, job, and Instagram below.
Meet Kegan Tyler Emms, Heather Chase’s Boyfriend
Kegan Tyler Emms and Heather Chase met at sea. Heather was working as a stewardess and Kegan was also a crew member in the same yacht. They have worked together on several sea cruises.
Kegan and Heather had been in a relationship since 2017 (or rather late 2016). They went official with their relation on Facebook on 9 January 2017, when Kegan updated his relationship status to “in a relationship”.
Kegan and Heather both loved yoga and it seemed they loved doing it together. In one of her Instagram posts, Heather wrote, “My two loves; Hot sweaty yoga & Kegan Emms”.
Some part of their relationship was long-distance because of their jobs. Of course, when either of them went on a cruise and the other was not in the crew, they had to spend a long time apart.
The current status of Kegan and Heather’s relationship was a little dubious. First, there have not been any couple posts on Heather’s Instagram since late-2018/early-2019. Second, Kegan’s current relationship status on Facebook says single.
On the other hand, Heather’s Instagram still has the old romantic couple posts. And there has not been any announcement of breaking up.
Whatever their relationship status (they are most likely broken up), Kegan is not with her on My Seanna. And how Heather appears (romance-wise) in Below Deck is to be seen.
Heather was born and raised and Hawaii. And it was the proximity with the sea that first instilled the love of open waters for her. And before Heather was cast in Below Deck, she already had a lot of experience as a yacht crew.
Below Deck alumni like Anastasia Surmava and Alex Radcliffe backed her for the job in My Seanna and lauded her experience and efficiency.
