Tony Duarte knows he’s born to surf the waves and be on the ocean. So, turning his love into a profession, the adrenaline junkie joined his first super yacht and luckily also got featured on Below Deck Season 10.
Get to know him better as this Tony Duarte Bio proceeds.
Tony Duarte On Below Deck
Below Deck season 10 premiered on November 21, 2022, and amidst the old faces, there were many newcomers including our star Tony Duarte.
This hunk of a person was happy to call St. David his home for the charter season, and as the season ended, he took to his IG to share that it was the “most fun and craziest experience” for him.
“Never thought I will be on a reality show but here I go, trying to do what I do best, get myself out of my comfort zone and explore new horizons. From the jungle to ST David BDS10 let’s have some fun,” the star added.
Joining Tony for the 10th installment of Below Deck were his co-star — Ross McHarg (bosun), Ben Willoughby (deckhand), Hayley De Sola Pinto (stew), Katie Glaser (deckhand), Alissa Humber (stew), Camille Lamb (deckhand/stew), Captain Lee Rosbach, Rachel Hargrove (chef), and Fraser Olender (chief stew).
Unfortunately, a few of them didn’t see thing eye to eye. For instance, just in the very first ep, Camille was seen questioning second stew Alissa’s leadership skills. It seems Alissa found the newcomer annoying because she wasn’t taking orders with a positive attitude. Infact, She didn’t finish any work properly.
Later, Camille then compared Alissa with an “A-grade” student adamant about finishing up their work and who didn’t know how to have fun. While she compared herself with a “C-grade” student who worked as well as had fun.
Obviously, this wasn’t well perceived by the fans.
“Camille stocked that fridge at a solid C grade level that she said she is satisfied w striving for. Sorry, but C students aren’t wired to be effective, competent yacht stews. Maybe she should just go work in a tollbooth or something,” a user tweeted
While another wrote, “Camille we can hear ya!! Turn down that attitude girl it’s too early.”

Looking back, Tony previously worked as a dive master in South Africa and a guide for whale-watching in his hometown. Also, he worked as a zip-liner while staying in the Bahamas with hopes that his professional background would help him excel as a deckhand.
