Season 11 of Below Deck is definitely one for the books. The latest installment introduces viewers to a host of new faces, most notably Captain Kerry Titheradge, who was the replacement for Captain Lee Rosbach. But along with a new captain, there was also a refreshed crew.

Chef Anthony Iracane, stewardesses Cat Baugh, Xandi Olivier, and Barbie Pascual, deckhands Kyle Stillie and Marie "Sunny" Marquis, and bosun Jared Woodin were among the newcomers aboard St. David joining alums Fraser Olender and Ben Willoughby.

However, the season has not been without its share of drama. There have been some unexpected firings and surprise departures.

In Episode 7, stewardess Cat abruptly left the St. David after struggling to find her place on the boat and getting a serious phone call from a friend back home. "I really wanna push through for you guys," Cat told Fraser, in tears, after receiving a very distressing call from a friend back home. "I'm just losing my mind right now," she said.

"If you're in a very unhappy place," Fraser told her, "I'd rather you put your health and your mental health before that and we get you the help you need as soon as we can."

In a confessional, he elaborated, "I don't know what is going on, but you can look into someone's eyes sometimes and see that there is no more that they can give. They are going through enough to be incapable, and I need to do what's right for her. "

During the same episode, Captain Kerry also fired bosun Jared for unprofessional behavior.

But with Cat gone, many folks have been wondering: Who will replace her on board? Here's what we know so far.

The woman seen in the trailer is also blonde like Cat, but unfortunately, her face is not shown.

We do hear some commentary about her, though. "She's an attractive girl," Kyle says in a scene, and Ben, who has been hooking up with Sunny, agrees.

In fact, in a confessional Ben says, "Bloody hell, I’m in trouble," referring to how attracted he is to this new stew. He is also seen putting his arm around this woman's back. In a subsequent scene, Sunny is seen discussing Ben's actions with the new stew to Barbie.

Season 11 also introduced audiences to new deckhand Dylan Pierre De Villiers in Episode 8, but it's unclear what episode the crew will meet this new stew in, who seemingly is about to shake things up. Seems like we'll just have to wait and tune in.
