Season 11 of Below Deck welcomed Captain Kerry Titheradge aboard the St. David and said goodbye to the beloved Captain Lee Rosbach.

Not only did this change in leadership throw viewers for a loop, but Captain Lee also wasn't expecting to exit so suddenly, especially after having 10 successful seasons under his belt. But Bravo was looking for a change, and Captain Kerry, who previously appeared on Below Deck Adventure, brought a new energy to the superyacht.

Except for returning crew members Fraser Olender and Ben Willoughby, Season 11 features a long list of newcomers including chef Anthony Iracane, stewardesses Cat Baugh, Xandi Olivier, and Barbie Pascual, and deckhands Kyle Stillie and Marie “Sunny” Marquis, and bosun Jared Woodin.

So many new faces, or as Captain Kerry may see it, so many replaceable employees. It's not unusual for someone to get fired by a captain in the Below Deck series franchise and during Season 11, Captain Kerry liberally uses his firing powers. So, who does Captain Kerry give the boot? After the March 18 episode, here's what we know.

Who does Captain Kerry fire during 'Below Deck' Season 11?

Ahead of the Season 11 premiere, viewers knew multiple firings were expected during Season 11 of Below Deck.

In the trailer, we see conflict between chief stew Fraser Olender and lead deckhand Ben Willoughby as they tried to run their respective departments. "Please don’t get involved in interior drama,” Fraser says to Ben, who fires back, "Mate, you’ve had way more people let go on your side. End of story."

But in the March 18 episode of Below Deck, neither of them bite the dust at the hands of our trusty captain. Instead, it's Jared, one of the many Season 11 newcomers, who is let go. Because of his continued behavior, drinking, and inability to put his personal issues aside for work, Captain Kerry fires Jared.

Captain Kerry previously told Us Weekly,"I think we may have reached the record of firings this season,” foreshadowing how disorderly things will get aboard.

However, he further told the outlet that he was going to give the newcomers a bit of grace. “I try not to make judgments when they turn up. It’s important to look at their CVs,” he said.

Captain Kerry continued: “This year I made a decision that I wasn’t going to give stripes out. I wasn’t going to allocate anyone full-time on something before knowing how they work, who they are and what attitude they bring to the team. That was great. That really enabled me to make a decision that I’m proud of and that worked for the season. So that was cool."

Honestly, Jared's fate may be a long time coming. Early on in Season 11, things get messy between Ben and Jared. While Ben tries to follow what Captain Kerry wanted, Jared does things his way and Ben makes sure that Captain Kerry knows it was Jared making the mistakes, not him. This ultimately makes Jared a candidate for getting let go.

The Twitter account for OverBoard: A Below Deck Podcast even speculated that Jared was going to get the axe for his "dumb mistakes."

With Jared the first to go, who will Captain Kerry fire next? We'll just have to tune in and see who Captain Kerry sacks.

Below Deck airs on Bravo on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET. New episodes will stream the next day on Peacock.
