Bravo's Below Deck Med welcomed back a fan-favorite stew on Monday, Aug. 24's episode. Following Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier's unceremonious firing after Captain Sandy found she had prescription meds aboard The Wellington that she had not reported, apparently a key tenant of maritime law, South African star stew Bugsy Drake ascended to the ranks of Chief Stew. "That's a weird way to get promoted, I guess," she said.

Being one stew down proved a struggle for the interior team during their latest charter, but thankfully, Captain Sandy called up an incredible replacement for the second stew, one who's just as loved by her coworkers as she is by Bravo fans: Aesha Scott.

The New Zealand native has recently gone Instagram public about her relationship with her boyfriend, who to the disappointment of many fans, is not her season's boat-mance, Jack Stirrup.

Who is Aesha Scott's boyfriend, Scotty Dobbo?

Way before she was announced as the new second stew on The Wellington, Aesha took to social media to make her new relationship Instagram-official. "This guy though," Aesha captioned a photo of the two of them in Colorado along with a heart emoji.

"I’ll go ahead and address the elephant in the room. Yes he is the blatantly more attractive/photogenic/talentedatEVERYTHING side of this duo, but I feel like what I bring is a certain mysterious spice, especially when I do things like cry over two-minute noodles for no reason when I’m on my period. So basically a power couple," she added, with her signature humor.

Scotty Dobbo is the name of Aesha's new man, and the two make for quite the adventurous couple. Recently, Aesha and Scotty traveled across the United States, hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding, canoeing, biking, and even driving an old ambulance around.
