Meet Storm Smith, Deckhand On Below Deck Mediterranean
The seventh installment of Below Deck Mediterranean hit the screen on July 7, 2022. And this time, under the captainship of Sandy Yawn, there appeared a brand new set of skilled yachties which included our star, Storm Smith.
However, not everyone was a new face. Returning this season with even more experience also was Mzi “Zee” Dempers — Storm’s childhood friend. Perhaps, it was Mzi who influenced Storm into coming to the show?
As a deckhand, Storm promised to use his abundance of knowledge from his time on a handful of different boats, and meet the exceptionally high standards and demands of the yachting industry. Also, given his defense mechanism to make light of the situation, the star didn’t mind the dramas. However, he didn’t have an issue taking hold of the ropes when things got out of hand either.
At the time of writing this article, Storm had already graced 2 eps of Below Deck Mediterranean — the first ep title “There’s No Place Like Home,” and the second “ I’ve Got a Sea-cret.”
Joining Storm for the 7th installment of the show were his co-stars — Chief Stew Natasha Webb, Chef Dave White, Bosun Raygan Tyler, Stew Kyle Viljoen, Deckhand Mzi “Zee” Dempers, and Deckhand Jason Gaskell.
