Ben Willoughby got a promotion this week on Below Deck, and fans have a lot to say about it.

Captain Kerry Titheradge fired Bosun Jared Woodin after he screwed up one time too many.

It made sense for the captain that Ben, as lead deckhand, would take on the bosun role.

After all, this was Ben’s second time working on the St. David, and he knows his way around the yacht.

While Captain Kerry may believe in Ben, Below Deck fans are a different story.

X (formerly Twitter) was filled with Below Deck viewers sharing their opinions on Ben’s new promotion.

“Is it wrong I’m hoping Ben with all of his ‘I could do this better than him’ attitude…he screws up? I’m a terrible person. I know.” wrote an X user.

Another pointed out that Ben becoming bosun was the only bad thing about Jared getting fired, while a different one called Ben the only choice but also a messy option.

“#belowdeck My concern now is that Ben’s head is going to get bigger,” said an X user.

Ben was also called a “TURD,” and his womanizing ways were brought up too.

The new Bosun was also called the worst.

“Ben becoming bosun isn’t something I can celebrate with him. He is a man w***e and arrogant. Because he isn’t the least bit humble, I hope he makes the boat capsize.#BelowDeck” read another X.

An X even compared Ben to Gary King from Below Deck Sailing Yacht.

A different X user made it clear Chef Ben Robinson was the only Ben for them.

“Ughhhhhhh Ben. I could see the mistakes Kyle was making because I’m two steps ahead. Okay there. Don’t let the big swell get to big for those breaches #BelowDeck,” read an X.

One X user simply just doesn’t like Ben.

Not everyone was going all in on the new bosun. Some Below Deck viewers are Team Ben and all for his new promotion.

“Maaan I’m so happy for Ben. Gettin’ laid and gettin’ promoted  #BelowDeck,” said an X.

Another one agreed with Captain Kerry that Ben was the perfect choice to lead the deck team.

Well, there you have it, Below Deck fans are weighing in on Ben Willoughby and his promotion to bosun.

As Monsters and Critics previously reported, a new hunky deckhand joins the mix next week, and he’s ready to shake things up.

There’s also a new stew joining the crew soon. The reason for that is that Cat Baugh is leaving, and you can learn more about her exit here.

Be sure to keep watching to find out how Ben does as the new bosun.

Below Deck airs Mondays at 9/8c on Bravo. Seasons 1-11 are streaming on Peacock.
