Eddie Lucas shared a milestone moment with Below Deck fans amid the Season 9 on-screen drama.
The first-officer has certainly had his hands full this season with his new job and deck team. Eddie has struggled to find a balance between learning his first-officer duties and being on deck with Jake Foulger, Rayna Lindsey, and Wesley O’Dell.
Adding fuel to the fire is the issue of chief stew Heather Chase saying a racial slur in front of Rayna. The deckhand wasn’t happy with how Eddie reacted when she first told him about the incident and she let him know it.
There’s plenty more for Eddie to deal with, too, before Season 9 winds down in a few weeks. Off-screen, though, Eddie is thriving and just shared some exciting news with Below Deck fans.
