Below Deck Down Under fan favorite Aesha Scott has spoken out after it was revealed that she’s returning to her Below Deck roots.

Aesha shocked her fans when the Below Deck Med Season 9 trailer showed her in the chief stew role.

Although Below Deck Med is where it all began for Aesha, she created a dream team with Captain Jason Chambers on Below Deck Down Under.

Aesha will return to the screen in just a few weeks, reunited with her friend Captain Sandy Yawn in Athens, Greece.

Now, as Below Deck fans pick their jaws up off the floor Aesha breaks her silence.

In true Aesha fashion, she’s super excited to speak about her latest gig.

Taking to Instagram once the Below Deck Med Season 9 trailer was dropped, Aesha gushed over going home again and being able to talk about it.

“A N N O U N C E M E N T!!!!!!! MY FAMILY!!!!!!! I CAN FINALLY OFFICIALLY LET YOU KNOW THAT I AM HAVE HEADED BACK TO THE MED!!!!!!!! The place where my yachting journey started and where my yachting heart truly lies. Being back in Mediterranean waters felt so insanely good and exciting, and getting to show @captainsandrayawn how much I’ve grown as a stew since we last worked together was so rewarding,” she wrote in the lengthy caption.

Aesha explained that she was so proud of the new season, but it also challenged her like never before. We got a glimpse of that in the first-look footage.

The chief stew hopes everyone enjoys what’s about to come and shared the premiere date of Monday, June 3.

“P.S. All these weeks of ignoring comments about if I’m ever going to be back on Below Deck have been very hard and I apologise for evading an answer 😂,” Aesha ended the IG post.

It didn’t take long for Below Deck family members to weigh in on Aesha’s news.
