Who Is Courtney Skippon? New Details On New Crew Member On Season 7 Of 'Below Deck' instagram

The fan-favorite Below Deck has returned for its 7th season and has already stirred up some interesting drama during its season premiere. We were introduced to the newest crew member, Courtney Skippon, who sure has viewers questioning how she landed her job. Skippon’s appearance was nothing short of complaints and annoyance as she made it very clear that she does not have a passion for working and would prefer complaining to anyone who would listen.


Courtney’s behavior begs the question of whether or not it will influence the length of her employment status with the charter yacht because this gal sure doesn’t seem on board with her job description. It will be interesting to see how the season plays out for Skippon if she keeps the mentality of not wanting to work at her job.

Here’s what we know so far about Courtney Skippon and a recap of some of her memorable comments from the show.
