Many crew members find love on Below Deck, including back in Season 10 when then-newcomers Camille Lamb and Ben Willoughby got together. The deckhand and the controversial stewardess immediately clicked, hooking up at every opportunity. However, once Captain Sandy fired Camille for her poor attitude and lack of interest in her job, fans wondered what that would mean for Camille and Ben's whirlwind romance.
Following her termination, Camille told Ben she was heading back to Mississippi to get on with her life; this upset the Australian, as he was really enjoying his time with the blond beauty. So, what ended up happening between the Bravo stars? And are they still together?
So, are Camille and Ben from 'Below Deck' still together?
The short answer is no; Camille and Ben are no longer together.
At the end of Season 10, Ben was still pining for Camille, even after he'd shared a make-out session with Leigh-Ann Smith. Once Ben wrapped up filming, he met up with Camille in the Dominican Republic to give their romance a chance. "I had to see about a girl," he explained in an Instagram post. But sadly, soon after their 10-day-long DR vacation ended, so did their relationship. Ben wrote in another post that it simply "wasn't meant to be."
Then, fast-forward to the Season 11 premiere (which dropped on Feb. 5, 2024), and Ben divulged more details about his time with Camille. He mentioned their vacation in the DR and how they had an "amazing week" together. But he also dropped a bombshell.
"Long story short, she cheated on me," he claimed.
And on that note, he said he's not in the market for another boatmance, explaining, "I definitely don't want to get as involved as I was last season. Maybe I'm wounded, maybe a little wiser. Jaded old man."
Ben had nothing but kind words for Camille when previously asked about their relationship.
In early 2023, Ben stopped by the Above Deck podcast to discuss the reality show. Oh, in case you were wondering, the hosts wasted no time bringing up his relationship with Camille. He shared that their connection was strong, comparing it to that of a movie romance — if we had to guess, Ben was definitely thinking of Sara and Jonathan from Serendipity.
"It was so awesome to be in that moment with her," Ben admitted on the podcast, adding, "We genuinely just had each other on this boat because she went through a really hard time, and I think she leaned on my shoulder for that."
Based on his wording, it seemed to hint that he and Camille were no longer an item. And as we've all come to find out, that is sadly true.
New episodes of Below Deck air Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
