Even though Below Deck viewers have not seen Elizabeth Frankini in a few seasons, the stew has made waves again after being linked to a few of the deckhands. Elizabeth appeared on Below Deck season 8 as one of the stews under Chief Stew Francesca Rubi. Francesca had a difficult time working alongside Elizabeth and ultimately let her go right before the season ended.
Elizabeth’s time as part of the Below Deck season 8 crew did not go well for the stew even after the charter season was cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic. Elizabeth came across as out of touch with reality and easily tricked into love. She was ultimately fired from the super yacht after she slept in a guest cabin without permission. Elizabeth’s decision pushed Francesca past the point of no return resulting in Captain Lee Rosbach handing out a one-way ticket back home. While Elizabeth claimed to be blindsided by getting fired, it was a long time coming.
